From the City:
Well the birthday festivities just kept on rollin for me this weekend. I guess you could say I'm a little on the spoiled side. The weekend started off with dinner with my lovely friend Lisa at Sheba, an ethiopian restaurant conveniently located just down the street from us. One of the strangest foods texturally to me is the injera. Injera is an ethiopian bread made from teff and barley flours and cooked like a pancake. My favorite ethiopian dish is the tikel gomen, it's made with chopped cabbage and carrots and cooked in this onion and garlic sauce. It's so good!
On Saturday night Simon and I went out for dinner with my dad at PROHIBITION gastrohouse on Queen East.
Hey that's my brother Aaron! He works at Prohibition and cooked our dinner last night. The only way you can totally assure that your food hasn't been spit in is if one of your family members actually cooks it.
I loved the menu because it was pub food done really really well
Haute Poutine: Frites, duck confit, marinated quebec curds and duck gravy makes for the best poutine I've ever had
Fresh shucked oysters for Dad
Buckingham Blanket for me: Rare Rotisserie Beef wrapped in Yorkshire Pudding, Caramelized Onions, Arugula, Wasabi-Mayo, Dipping Jus...don't mind if I do...
Bison Burger for Simon
All capped off by a hot brownie sundae.
Not a bad birthday if I do say so myself.
Hope everyone had a weekend of good food...
