Have you discovered this little gem yet? Driving down Stephenson, you'd likely pass on by the Toucan Cafe due to lack of curb appeal.
A small, off-white house that looks abandoned sits next to the restaurant sign... confusing to the first time visitor. The bland view from the road is a far cry from the colorful interior.
I requested a couple of bites... for research and reporting purposes, naturally. This reviewing thing does have it's perks!
My Chile-Orange Salmon was perched on top of corn and black bean salsa over a fried piece of a tortilla. I requested the sauces be served on the side. Four arrived, the chimichurri being my fave.
Each person at the table enjoyed the item they ordered... from Skirt Steak with grilled shrimp to Moroccan Salmon to Filet Medallions. And let me tell you, the warm bread and herbed-garlic butter... mercy me! I could have eaten the entire basket full!
It was a successful night all around. Unique atmosphere and original menu selections as well as excellent service.
So, don't let the inconspicuous entrance fool you... Toucan Cafe is a hidden Southside Savannah treasure.
