With its name derived from Mediterranean spelling for salt cod, Bacalao celebrates the versatility of fish, mixing it with Newfoundland culinary traditions. With a focus on local produce, this charming restaurant uses seasonal and sustainable ingredients as often as they can. Highlights from their menu include their soon to be famous seafood chowder, made with snow crab and cold water shrimp, and their crisp salt cod fritters served with potato and eggs. All their dishes are made from scratch, even their desserts. They also serve local beers and spirits to pair perfectly with the food. It’s no wonder that Bacalao has received a number of awards and titles, like a gold medal in the Canadian Culinary Championships, and a gold medal at the Olympic Gold Medal Plates Competition in 2011.
