I've gone to this restaurant a couple of times for business lunches, always to the pleasant surprise of my company. Today was the first time my wife and I went as a couple (we are both big into food).
I ordered the pulled pork, my wife had the mac and cheese with pulled pork and we shared a poutine.
Having eaten pulled pork at some of the most reputable pulled pork dives in Western Canada, I can state without a doubt that this was the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had. The bun holds up so well to the last bite, is just a tad sour and is braised to sweet perfection with brown sugar. The onions are sweet and flavoured with balsamic and wine. The pork itself is unusually unsweet for pulled pork and favours more savory flavours like cumin. The pork was perfectly cooked and was neither tough nor stringy. Putting them all together you have a phenomenal sandwich. Of course, a great bottle of local beer helps it go down a little easier.
My wife's mac and cheese was made to order, as with all mac and cheese at OSF. This means you have to wait a bit for it to arrive, but when you see the crispy, bubbling gooey goodness, you know the wait was worth it. House-made noodles, rich cheesey sauce and layers upon layers of flavour. Mac and cheese is not usually a wow dish; OSF changes that.
The poutine was prepared with a cheddar style cheese curd, hand-cut double fried fries and a thinner, more savoury gravy. The poutine ranks up there among the greats. Make sure to ask for their house-made blackberry ketchup if you want an extra dipping sauce.
Having tried a number of other dishes, I can say that every item is an experience. With the prices and location, you can tell that the Chef is serving you good food because he has a passion for what he does. OSF is bar-none, the best bang for your buck you will get in the Okanagan with appies ranging from $6-8 and mains from $8-$12! A few places in town could learn that amazing, scratch-made food is inexpensive and a reward to your guests.
The dining area is small, but cozy and kitchy. A great place to bring a friend, grab a lunch or take a business relation for a surprisingly pleasant meal. I absolutely can't wait for our next visit!
