I’m a bit looped, after eating an amazing meal.
It’s from The Kingston Social, a place here in the east end of Toronto.
One gets the menu a few days in advance, then places orders. And one then picks up amazing cuisine.
Erika ordered this a few days ago, seeking to replicate something from earlier this summer. When she’s this certain? I don’t argue.
“Sure, order one for me too.”
So the dinner was ribs on a bed of rice & beans, with a slaw for $20 plus an extra side of slaw for $3 for us to share.
Speaking as a big eater, I barely managed to finish, and I am thrilled. I accompanied the ribs & slaw & rice/beans with Konzelmann Shiraz.
I am on my third glass –don’t worry mom I won’t drive anywhere – as I try to capture the experience.
The camera is invaluable for this. Notice how much you get (above picture). Notice how dry the ribs are in this picture.
If I could somehow photograph my insides, I’d show you how amazing I feel. This isn’t like any ribs I’ve ever eaten. They’re clean & dry, with subtlety & spice.
We can’t be a sad deprived wasteland, not if it was a friend in the west end who told me about The Kingston Social. Previously at their recommendation I had tried the lamb shank & had a lovely barbecued salmon. Today took it to a higher level.
Sigh. Scarberia no longer.
