Revisiting Goods & Provisions

Sandy and I took Gail for her birthday. It was very dark.

I couldn’t stay away: I went back, sat in the sunny front window, and took pictures to my heart’s content while I ate delicious food.

If you get there early, they’ve got buck-a-shuck oysters. I got a dozen.

Following that, I couldn’t resist the marrow bone and parsley salad. The salad provides a good counterpunch to the richness of the beef marrow: some pepperiness, acidity, and saltiness with the capers. Absolutely delicious.

I ended up with some of their tacos — one of pork, one of ground beef — last week’s Gastropost challenge was tacos, so it fit in well with that.

Pork and ground beef tacos

The pork taco is on the left: it was sweet and smoky and had a bit of spice to it. The ground beef, on the right, was milder – the cilantro added some interest to the flavours of the meat and lettuce. Both of them benefited from a squirt of lime.

About pat

Visual thinker, first got interested in digital imagery in the early days of Omni magazine, back when it used to review what had happened at SIGGraph. I worked in the 3D software field for 23 years. Lifelong enjoyment of gardening grew over time; I was a Master Gardener (briefly) and had a vegetable and herb allotment garden in Toronto to grow vegetables, as well as perennial gardens at home. Gardening and enjoying fresh produce also raised my interest in cooking with really good local food. As more restaurants in Toronto are offering local fare, I enjoy dining out and sampling the visions the different chefs have.
