Profile Last Updated: July 09, 2007
Although you can dig into appetizers like tempura alligator with sesame green beans, Alsacian style escargot and prawns Provencale, the talk of the town is its assortment of pizzas in a traditional wood oven. All the flavour and aroma in the toppings and crusts are captured to perfection. Choose from Florentina, spicy chicken, lamb sausage and four other tantalizing creations. Go from the piping hot to the raw bar, where you can munch on sea fare like lobster tacos, poached prawns and half or full dozen orders of oysters. Select a classic dish inspired by the trattoria’s of Italy, like the ravioli Bolognese, porcini tagliatelle (porcini mushrooms and black truffle pesto) or grilled milk fed veal chops (camboloza cheese stuffed, with pine nut sun dried tomato butter and black truffle mac and cheese).
Dark chocolate ganache with caramelized orange slices, banana frangelico bread pudding and house made sticky toffee pudding, to name a few. Pick up some of Packrat Louie’s exceptional chocolates for purchase, and bring them home to that special someone. Wash it all down with some champagne cocktails or martinis from the bar.

A favourite dining spot for the après-theatre crowd in Old Strathcona (the bistro is located right by Fringe Theatre Adventures and the Varscona), Packrat Louie offers tasty menu items, as lively as its clientele. The dining room is spacious; however it fills up quickly, so reservations are recommended. While perusing an extensive wine list, patrons can catch a glimpse of the hard working chefs in the bar style kitchen.
