NextDoor Restaurant opened their doors earlier this year on Main Street Unionville. They are a Canadian rustic restaurant with fusion flares. If you’ve heard of Smash Kitchen, they are the sister restaurant.
I’ve tried a variety of their unique fusion dishes, and I feel the chefs have put a lot of thought on creating each dish because they were all very tasty and flavourful! Their menu change regularly while keeping some as staples on the menu. I had the opportunity to taste the dinner menu a few months back which I have covered below.
Pickled Vegetable | Fresh herbs
BBQ Ox Tongue | Shaved brussel sprout salad green onion, cashew crumble, red chili, frissee, dried cranberry, nam jim dressing, parsnip puree, taro chips, chili oil
Grilled Octopus | Nduja, watercress, salad, pomme puree, chilis, crushed cashews
Roasted Bone Marrow | Vietnamese beef tartare, cashew crumble, fried shallots, coriander, sourdough
Mushroom Gyoza | Edamame, red cabbage, roasted oyster mushrooms, truffle soy
Lamb Sirloin | Fried basil, Moroccan rub, whipped hummus, cilantro pistou, pomegranate gastrique, sundried tomato, arugula, roasted cauliflower
Singaporean Chili Crab | Snow crab, chili sauce, cashews

Duck Liver Pate | Maple bourbon syrup, pickled cantaloupe, sour dough
Fried Brussel Sprout | Maple balsamic, double smoke bacon, parmesan aioli

Torched Sashimi Salmon | Maple soy, puffed wild rice, pickled cucumbers, togarashi aioli
NextDoor Caesar | Vodka, clamato juice, worcestershire, tabasco, perpperoncici, charcuterie
Overall, I would highly recommend NextDoor Restaurant. The food is solid and I enjoyed the casual dining atmosphere and friendly service at NextDoor restaurant. They also welcome and respond to customer feedback to further improve the dining experience.
It is rare for me to say this but it is very hard to pick a favourite dish because they’re all my favourites! But if it comes down to choosing one, I would say the Singaporean Chili Crab because of its smokey flavour and sauciness. I could not resist ordering a second round. I definitely do want to make some time to visit NextDoor Restaurant again for their weekend brunch menu after hearing great things about it!
