Just located outside of Chinook Centre is a restaurant called State & Main which I wanted to try since it opened. It’s your typical cuisine which means burgers and steak place, and what makes this place good is that there’s tons of parking from the mall. I’m sure it’s going to be hectic during holiday shopping season!
We sat down and started with an appetizer to split and the special they had this particular evening was half off wings, so we got an order of Salt and Pepper Wings which was actually better than expected! The wings were crispy and seasoned nicely, and they had tons of meat on them!
I don’t normally order seafood from a place I’m first trying out but I really wanted to try their Applewood Salmon Club and I’m actually really glad I did. The burger was super tasty and it was amazing! I had 2 sides, which was their honey slaw and jalapeno cheddar mashed potatoes. My burger was made of applewood salmon in a toasted brioche bun with roasted red pepper aioli, lettuce, tomato, peppered bacon & fresh avocado. Like I said, it was amazing!
My husband ordered the Chorizo Sausage Lasagna which was really good as well. The portion was a nice size and the filling was delicous. Baked to perfection, this lasagna hit the shot as it was a hearty home cooking styled dish.
We enjoyed our meal so much, we ended up splitting a half order of Dirt Pie and to be honest, it was the perfect amount! This lovely dessert was a cake made of chocolate & mocha ice cream separated by a layer of fudge brownie chunks on top of a crumbled cookie crust. Yes, it was just as good as the description!
Overall, we really enjoyed this place and I’m sure I will be back. We enjoyed our time here. Food, service, atmosphere, location… all perfect!
