The Butchery

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.

Country style terrine ($5.00)
DSC09716Pickled onion. Similar to a pate but a different texture. Tasty and totally worth trying.

Goose croquettes ($5.00)
DSC09717Rouille. You can’t see it but there were 5 bite size pieces.

Smoked mussels toast ($10.00)
DSC09724Caramelized 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.

Hunter’s stew ($8.00)
DSC09725Bison meatballs, bison sausage, potato, mushroom and tomato. Bison errthang. This was awesome; tender, flavourful, just small to share.

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.

Porchetta di testa ($15.00)
DSC09721Sprouts, salsa verde and pecorino. Couldn’t stop myself from ordering this again. The salsa verde was excellent, wished there was more of it!

Look at all that meaaaaaaaaaat.

Hot smoked dry aged nouveau beef ($15.00)
DSC09727Brassica 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.

Scorched honey pudding & canelé ($9.50)
DSC09733We 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.
