I had the chance to check out the Rumpus Room lately. the latter is a small diner located on Main Street, not far from Broadway. They have a casual atmosphere, and have sofas available in addition to regular tables, as well as various games for patrons to play with. Food-wise, the menu consisted of comfort food: fries, sandwiches, burgers, etc. I had their Chicken and Waffles and Mac and Trees. While waiting for my food to arrive, I entertained myself by going through the game of Never Have I Ever…and quickly realized that I’ve lead an extremely dull and boring life.
Feeling a bit depressed and inadequate, I was glad when my food finally arrived.
Chicken and Waffles ($15):
This came with 2 small waffles and chicken tenders, and was served with a side of gravy and maple syrup. The waffles were a bit dense and hard, but still tasty, and contained sesame, which provided a nice fragrance. The chicken tenders had a pretty nice crunchy crust that was well-seasoned and flavourful, and the meat was quite tender and juicy; I did find some of the pieces to be a bit too small and not meaty enough, however.
Mac and Trees ($13):
This consisted of macaroni, mixed with broccoli, and was served with a biscuit. The noodles were very well cooked, being tender whilst retaining some chew. The sauce was quite thick and coated the noodles well; it was a bit underseasoned however. The biscuit was a bit dry for me, although it did have a nice savoury flavour and fragrance of sesame.
I had a good time at the Rumpus Room. The food didn’t really blow me away, but was still fairly tasty, and the prices were also fairly reasonable. The service was a bit slow, but the staff was very friendly. I’d definitely recommend checking this place out.
