Round 2 for Rge Rd’s Big Bottles in the Butchery event. In case you missed it, click here to see the very first BBB. No reservations, communal seating, I can’t think of a better way to spend a Tuesday evening than here.
The menu for the night. A few items similar to the first event but this time, they had sticks instead of bowls.
Dessert menu. A couple new options from the last time I was here.
We were starving so we ordered a couple dishes to share between the three of us. We had the same waitress as last time and she somehow remembered me. I have to say, pretty damn impressive. Service again was top notch.
Smoked mussels toast ($10.00)
Caramelized onion and pickled apple. Look how plump and generous they were with the mussels! Three on each piece of toast. The caramelization of the onion and slight tartness from the apple was a great flavour combo.
Closeup of the bison stick. Lucky, everyone is good with sharing so we were able to sample a bite of everything. Wish we had tried the chicken hearts.
Look at all that meaaaaaaaaaat.
Hot smoked dry aged nouveau beef ($15.00)
Brassica mustard and horseradish. Mustard had a nice zip to it but the kicker here was from the horseradish. Meat was a little thicker and thus, more chewy compared to the porchetta.
Closeup of the dry aged beef. Meat on meat. My two friends were stuffed from all the bread but there wasn’t that much…
Scorched honey pudding & canelé ($9.50)
We had to get a dessert which I let J pick. She went for the same one she had on a previous visit, the pudding and canelé, which is a French type of pastry. Pro tip: break a piece of the canelé off, dunk it in the pudding and try not to go yummmmmmmmmm.
I’m still pretty surprised that this event isn’t packed. Maybe because it’s a Tuesday? I’m not complaining though. Next event is February 28, 2017.
