Had lunch in Kingston Ontario the other day with my cousin Tamara at one of our favourite places which is very well known in Kingston and which has a line up a mile long on the weekends (good thing it was mid week!). It is located at 44 Princess St Kingston, Ontario, (613) 544-7790 – visit the website at www.panchancho.com
Pan Chancho is a take out bakery/restaurant in the front and a small eat-in restaurant in the back. When you walk in the front door the smell is enough to make you want to move in permanently. Fresh baked bread and a great kitchen send aromas of great food wafting through the air.
We went to the restaurant portion of the restaurant and each ordered lunch. I had the spinach and asiago torte with a marinated artichoke salad. I can’t tell you how delicious this was. The pastry shell was so flakey and light and the spinach and asiago perfectly mixed and warmed. The salad of artichokes was yummy and included sun dried tomatoes, capers and pieces of marinated olives. I love this restaurant and no trip to Kingston is complete without at least having lunch here.
