Model Milk

Oh man, it’s been waaaaaaaaaaaay to long since my last trip(s) to Model Milk (here and here). They still offer their $40.00 Sunday Supper’s which I think is one of the best deals in the city! I met up with P during the long weekend to try their Spanish tapas theme (Sunday dinner’s theme changes every weekend). The vibe is chill with sweet tunes, friendly and knowledgeable staff, blah blah blah, let’s get to the smorgasbord of dishes.


Kettle sour #6 ($10.00)
DSC09877Blindman Brewing is killing it with their sour beers. This one I hadn’t tried before; their kettle sour #6 (amarillo & vic secret) went down nice and easy.

Cocktail special ($10.00)
DSC09876P went with the daily cocktail; light, sweet and refreshing from the sip I tasted.

Marinated olives & manchego
DSC09879These reminded me of the olives you get back at Uccellino or Bar Bricco. The generous chunks of manchego were a nice touch.

Pan con tomate
DSC09878The tomatoes were bright, almost summery sweet. Good start to our meal.

Stracciatella & anchovy, mushrooms & shrimp and romesco & leeks
DSC09882Three different types of crostini to get things rolling. The anchovies were fantastic, mushrooms bursting with flavour and the remesco & leek was well balanced. All freakin’ delicious.

Octopus salad
DSC09884The octopus was tender but still kept its bite, sweet and succulent.

Smoked chorizo
DSC09889These were tough to chew and didn’t have much flavour going for it, considering it was “smoked”. Probably our least favourite dish of the night.

Fermented chistorra
DSC09885The chistorra were waaaaaaaay better. We would have happily ate two bowls of these.

Patatas brava and salt cod
DSC09887These came out piping hot. A nice crispy bite; perfect to satisfy your inner fat kid.

Basque cake and sherry cream
DSC09890We had no idea what to expect for dessert but these were fantastic. They looked quite dense and cakey, but turned out to be the opposite. The sherry cream was poured table side and cooled down to become more like an icing than liquid. Fascinating.


So good! Model Milk continues to impress – I’ll be back sooner next time.
