Cafe Victoria (37 King Street East, in the King Edward) (Winterlicious)

Fine for $20, but nothing special. Vegetable martini with balsamic reduction (vinegary red pepper gazpacho I think) was a pleasant start to the meal. I think the soup of the day (cauliflower) would have been nicer, but I was intrigued. The balsamic reduction didn’t taste particularly balsamic.

Seafood stew for main course was pleasant, the seafood was fairly average, but well in line with what you’d expect for a $20 three-course meal. I opted to have it with an orzo, tomato, olive and caper salad, which was nice but I ended up leaving a lot of it as I was in danger of succumbing to a grease and salt overdose.

Banana and chocolate cake tasted nothing like chocolate but was surprisingly banana-y and very pleasant.
