Where did I eat?

Personas Patio, Restaurant, and Lounge at the Grandvilla Casino in Burnaby

What do they specialize in?

Sandwiches, pastas, and appetizers

What was the vibe?

Modern, spacious, sleek

What did I order?

Blackberry Smash

Blackberry Smash – Captain Morgan Dark Rum, Limoncello, blackberry puree, lemon and lime juice, simple syrup, and mint

  • This is like a more fruity version of a mojito
  • I really liked the blackberry flavour because it added a bit of sweetness and tartness

Ebi Mayo

Ebi Mayo

  • The batter was very light, crunchy, and not greasy or heavy
  • The prawns were perfectly cooked and having their tails removed made them easy to pick up and eat
  • The chili mayo was lightly drizzled on so it didn’t completely overwhelm the prawn flavour

Blackberry Brie Sandwich

Blackberry Brie Sandwich – grilled sourdough, brie, bacon, arugula, blackberry jam, and garlic aioli

  • The bacon inside was thick and crispy and I liked the contrasting crunchy texture with the soft melty brie cheese
  • The blackberry jam added a nice slightly sweet element to the sandwich

Deep Fried Oreos

Deep Fried Oreos

  • I’m not crazy about Oreos on their own, but deep frying them made them delicious
  • The Oreo got was soft and gooey on the inside and the deep fried batter was crispy
  • If you like indulgent desserts, you should definitely try these

Final Thoughts?

Personas offers good casual food in a nice environment in Burnaby. The menu is more creative than comparative restaurants like Earls or Cactus Club.
