Take-Out Menu @ Simmering Kettle – Included A Recipe To Cook @ Home

One of Barrie’s favorite Restaurateurs has had to face the reality of the times recently.  Shalu Persaud, owner of Simmering Kettle and Dosti Eats has found a bold way to stay in business!

Shalu has closed the doors at Dosti Eats!  But wait!  She’s moved that business into the sister restaurant Simmering Kettle.  Thank Goodness!  Find the same great food – just across the parking lot at 531 Bryne Dr. 

Shalu would like to thank her landlord, A.S. properties, managed by Kirkwood Properties for making the move as easy and seamless as possible.  Shalu states, “It’s wonderful how everyone is pulling together in such strange times!”

NEW HOURS TO SERVE YOU BETTER

Simmering Kettle/Dosti Eats is open for business Monday – Saturday from 9am-8pm and on Sunday from 9am-7pm for pickup and delivery

Shalu would like everyone to know that she’s offering some great new services as well.  There are very affordable weekly specials, as well as – wait for it….

Grocery Packages custom tailored for pick up (no more line ups!  Call Shalu and order your meat/veggies/fruit/bread/milk and eggs!)

            Family Sized meals such as lasagna/Shepherd’s Pie/Cabbage Rolls

            As well as tray service.

These new offerings are certainly added bonuses to the great regular menu options!  For anyone inquiring about the new available services, please call Simmering Kettle.

Shalu sends us a wonderful new recipe to try out as well.  Have some fun with this one and keep your eye out for more to come!

A GEM “UNCOVERED”

A GEM "UNCOVERED

We’ve uncovered a hidden gem at the north end of Barrie!  Alliance Billiards!! 

After speaking with owner, Georgia Makrygiannis, we realized that this is not your usual pool hall.  The billiards room has been around for 27 years, but Georgia took it over only 5 years ago.  During the past 5 years, Georgia’s passion for people can be seen, heard, felt and tasted!!

In fact, one staff says… “Georgia – You blew life into this place” –Brian Kelly, Bartender.

The staff have worked hard at making Alliance Billiards a place for not only Pool Leagues, Dart Leagues and Tournaments, but Family fun as well.  Georgia tells us,  “when children play billiards they’re playing against the ball, not each other so it teaches good sportsmanship.  Billiards also helps with concentration, eye hand co-ordination and geometry.  Besides all that – it’s just good, affordable fun!”

Opening at 9 am, she is there ready to make a breakfast for anyone coming off shift that might enjoy a game or two before hitting the hay.  Prior to COVID a standard week included the various leagues, including a youth league, ages 7-17, Karaoke, Live Music by great local artists, D.J. night and date night.

Catering Available

Alliance Billiards has a full service menu – not just bar food.  Actually we can even order trays ready to eat or to divvy up into the freezer.  Imagine – “Made by Georgia” treats like Spanakapita, Cabbage Rolls, Stuffed Peppers, Lemon Chicken or Greek Meatballs to name a few.  We can order single servings or family sizes at REALLY affordable prices.  They’ll even deliver for us!! (Just give them 24 hours notice)

COVID is not getting Georgia down!  During the summer she was allowed a temporary patio that became such a favorite spot for her patrons she’s working at keeping it.  It has also given Georgia initiative to reinvent some of her services, like the tray service and no charge delivery!

Reservations Available

Alliance Billiards will accept reservations from nine a.m. until noon for the midnight shift workers and early birds, but after that call and see if there’s space!

You can order from the kitchen any time for take-out or delivery knowing that pure passion for food has gone into your meals.

A Shout Out

Georgia would like to give a shout out to the Patrons of Alliance Billiards.  They call or text often with food orders, morning reservations or just to check in!  For many avid players, Alliance is like going to a second home.  They know they can “Play Safe and Stay Safe”, because Georgia and her staff are “there to care”.

Over the holiday make a morning date and play a game!  Call Alliance to reserve your table.  Better yet, when you’re reserving your table – order a tray of homemade deliciousness for dinner and make a day of it!

SAY IT! – SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

TANDOORI KINGDOM SAYS "MERRY CHRISTMAS" TO BARRIE

They’re saying it!  Listen…The staff and owners of Tandoori Kingdom at 428 Blake Street in Barrie are wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

Actually they’ve reached out to us to have a special message sent to everyone in Barrie.  Nirmal Mangat, one of the owners at Tandoori Kingdom would like everyone to take a moment and share the joy of the season by saying Merry Christmas to someone.

So many of us have been struggling with holidays this year, and the inability to keep our traditional gatherings due to the Pandemic.

Nirmal is asking each of us to reach out.  Reach out to someone that you haven’t spoken to lately, or someone you safely cross paths with during your time spent out and about.

Even better yet, use our comment section to wish your “Special Someone” a Merry Christmas.

You see, Nirmal is concerned!  Concerned about neighbors and families that may be struggling with loneliness more so than usual this year.

As a business owner in Barrie, Nirmal has firsthand knowledge of what our safety protocols have cost us.  We need to stay safe, but we must remember that this season is one of caring and sharing.  We CAN do this safely!  Walking a pet?  I’m sure that you always stay socially distanced while doing so.  Wish others a Merry Christmas as you pass – Then tell us about it!  Let’s start a “Say Merry Christmas” campaign!!

Let others know – sing it if you will – as you’re out and about!  Bring goodwill to all!

Do you have a neighbor that is alone? Reach out – phone or drop a note to the door; this could mean far more than you would ever imagine! 

These random acts of kindness bring a special ray of sunshine to those alone or unable to go out.  Tandoori Kingdom thinks that this campaign is important!

In fact they’re offering each person who has said Merry Christmas to someone a 10% discount on their next meal! 

Go in, or order takeout by phone at (705) 503 1400, and let them know you’ve taken part in the “Say Merry Christmas” campaign….it’s that easy.

This year – shout it out… Tandoori Kingdom has.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

CALLING ALL COLLEGE KIDS!!

CALLING ALL COLLEGE KIDS!!

With such a crazy start to College classes this year, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to going home for the holidays.  Keeping in tight COVID circles has let everyone become closer than usual.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a dorm dinner with those we’re close to before everyone takes off for home?

Just thinking about it makes me crave catering from Dosti Eats!  I love that place!  The word Dosti translated to English even means friendship…so appropriate!!

It doesn’t matter what my circle is craving – Dosti Eats always have us covered.  We can choose from so many different street food cuisines, even travel the world in one meal.  Especially at this time of year it’s nice to take an evening from studies and work to sit back, break bread and have some fun!

The best part is Dosti Eats caters to so many ethnic choices and they’ll deliver!  The delivery option is great giving us even more time to just kick back.

I’m thinking about a couple of salads – maybe Thai Mango Salad and Mexican Street Slaw with a tray each of Samosas, Sliders and Wraps.  Maybe we’ll ditch the finger foods and go all out with some Jerk Chicken, Souvlaki and Curry with Rice.

Whatever we end up choosing I know, as always, it will be both delicious and filling with no mess to argue about! 

I think we’ll ask the owner, Shalu, what “Christmas-y” treats she can send for dessert too.  Whatever she suggests – I know it will be great!

Restaurant Phone Number:  705 725 0101

For Catering Please Call: 705 828 2257

Just another good reason to order from Dosti Eats!!
