Review: Babaluu Supperclub, Toronto

I was recently invited to Babaluu Supperclub on Yorkville Avenue for Nicki Laborie and Samantha Millar’s birthday party. I arrived on one of Toronto’s first truly freezing Friday nights. I was amazed as Nicki arrived in a beautiful little dress with a tan she recently acquired in Brazil. I decided not to complain about feeling even slightly cold in my jeans and jacket. Babaluu features a Spanish inspired menu and throughout the night a two man band played Salsa. Later into the evening as we were finishing our meal a Salsa teacher made the rounds: pulling reluctant woman out of their chairs and onto the dance floor. Dinner turned into drinks and the room filled with Latin inspired locomotion.

Nicki had organized our menu:

Babaluu Dip Platter

Plantain, yucca and corn chips served with an assorted of guacamole, chickpea and black bean dips

Grilled Pears Salad
With proscuitto, palmito hearts and pinenuts on a bed of organic greens in a balsamic reduction vinaigrette
