Earlier this week, I had the chance to check out The Carbon Bar to take part in their lobster burger promotion. This was my first visit to The Carbon Bar, and I was in awe of its space. The look was of a vintage yet updated rock-and-roll discotheque diner with high ceiling and an open kitchen. Overall, it was a lively atmosphere with a large cocktail bar situated in the middle of the dining space.


Currently, The Carbon Bar has an ongoing promotion where you can get a Nova Scotia Lobster Burger for only $20 with the purchase of an Alexander Keith's beverage. Hurry in soon, as the promotion is only available until the end of September. I had the pleasure of trying the special deal earlier this week, and thoroughly enjoyed devouring the burger. The Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Burger was a sky-high burger with pit smoked bacon truffles hollandaise, beef steak tomato, dill pickle, and Old Bay mayo. The burger itself was quite a mouthful, and filled with large lobster chunks for the lobster lover. The bacon truffles hollandaise added a nice balance to the overall flavor, and the strip of bacon provided a good crunch. Lastly, the burger contained a surprisingly large amount of meat and coated with a lightly fried patty.


Jalisco Sour ($15) - corn infused Casamigos Tequilla Ancho Reyes, lemon, egg white, and tajin


The Carbon Bar has always been on my endless list of restaurants in Toronto to eat at least once. Since we were there for dinner, we decided to splurge and got a bunch of other dishes on the menu as well. First and foremost, we got our meat fix by ordering two portions of the Pit Master Platter (minimum 2 people) ($30 per person). Note that you need at least two people to order this platter, and it was more than enough for the four of us. The Southern-US inspired platter was plentiful with pork ribs, beef brisket, buttermilk fried chicken, coleslaw, pickles, fries & chipotle mayo.


 

Corn Hush Puppies ($7) - jalapeno ranch  



Wild Shrimp Ceviche ($16) - avocado, Peruvian pepper berries, salsa criolla, coriander, serrano chili, tomatillo & lime granita 



Mac & Cheese ($11) - vintage cheddar, mozzarella, gruyère



Overall, we had a great evening at The Carbon Bar. The food was great, the ambiance was hip and lively, and the staff members were attentive. They are open Mon-Wed (4 pm to 10 pm), Thurs (4 pm to 11 pm), Fri (4 pm to late), and Sat (5 pm to late). Come for the BBQ, but don't forget to take advantage of the Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Burger promotion (only here until the end of September).
