It’s in Trinity Bellwoods after all.
My brother and I came here on a Friday into Labour Day weekend for a drink. We came at a time when they were about to close the kitchen to prepare for dinner service, so we were told that if we wanted food, we should order soon as the only thing available during the transition would be burgers. Doesn’t make sense, but ok.
The General’s Cup ($12) with Cucumber Infused Pimm’s No. 1 Gin, Lemon, Lavender Bitters, and Ginger Beer. Anything with ginger beer, you got me. Too bad it wasn’t Hendrick’s Gin. I love me some Hendricks.
Crispy Pig Ears with Maple Syrup ($6) – I am a bit mixed about this. While it is a mix of savoury and sweet, and not a lot of fatty bits, it was a little odd to me, like I was eating candied pig ears.
While we sat outside the patio to soak up the sun with the bees and wasps, we had decent service from the staff whom occasionally came out. I much prefer its sister location, it’s closer to home.
