Profile Last Updated: January 09, 2009
The combination of fine Italian foods infused with special Indian spices has been a hit for Film Festival celebs, and hip Toronto locals. The 5th Element is a stylishly modern restaurant and lounge that attracts an attractive crowd that just can’t get enough of its delicious Mediterranean dishes infused with Indian flavours. Several go as far as walking the red carpet just to see what the fuss is all about. Perhaps it’s the Element’s lavish décor or stunning two-tier patio that gets people talking. Or maybe, it is their tasty menu of original recipes that include goan style steak, cider brined pork ribs and various vegetarian entrees.
A Mediterranean Masterpiece
5th Element offers mesmerizing Mediterranean and immaculate Indian infused dishes, delicately prepared and artistically presented. Not to be missed are the tiger shrimp with risotto, which are accompanied with juicy pieces of asparagus in a white wine sauce with lemon cream and topped with fresh herbs and spices. Another popular Indian dish is the stuffed paneer tikka, which comes with healthy mixed greens and is smothered in an oven dried tomato sauce. In the summer, head to Element and try their prix-fixe three-course dinner meal.
Dessert To Die For
Save room for dessert and try their mouth-watering halwa, which are diced pineapples with honey and vanilla ice cream nestled in a homemade phyllo cup. There is also creme brulee, a chocolate mousse cake as well as a saaji cake with kulfi and melon balls.
