Reds

While wandering around Square One Shopping Centre we stumbled across this interesting red brick faced restaurant. After taking a look at their menu we decided to give them a try. We were not familiar with Reds prior to this visit so this would be a completely new experience.

They advertise themselves on their website as having a scratch kitchen, meaning they make everything from scratch.

Service was pretty good overall. Our server was attentive and courteous. The food took a little bit of time but if it’s for the reason that they are making things from scratch then I can accept that. It wasn’t horribly long but we arrived at 1:30pm after the lunch time rush. I had expected a little faster but again, was not that bad.

We started with calamari. Tender pieces but the batter was not overly crispy. Good taste though.

We ordered a Reds Burger. A homemade style burger served with lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickle on a baked potato bun made in-house in their bakery. Very delicious and one of the better burgers I have had. The taste and texture of a homemade burger is much better than any pre-fabricated burger. I chose sweet potato fries. These were delicious. Also made from scratch with pieces of skin on them and cooked to a nice crispness.

After this delicious meal there was absolutely no room for dessert. But we did take an Apple pie to go. To be honest, it wasn’t as good as I was expecting. The pie crust was a bit too doughy.

But the over all experience at Reds was very enjoyable. Their homemade burger made all the difference. Like making your own burger. Service was good overall and reasonably priced.

We plan to visit again.
