ELECTRIC MUD BBQ

After falling in love with Grand Electric last fall, its no surprise that eating at sister Electric Mud was on the top of my bucket list. This tapas style, so-hip-it-hurts eatery served up some mean grub, and I can truly vouch that everything is good on the menu. **(If you want to eat anytime after 7, expect to wait at least 1/2 hour at this trendy Parkdale spot)

I highly suggest going with 3+ people so you can try some of everything and leave satisfied. I went with 6 people so we actually ordered 1 or everything on the menu (including the specials of the day… diet starts tomorrow?). We started with some beergaritas which really hit the spot on this hot hot day and then proceeded to indulge ourselves with all the tasty treats to follow. The highlights where the BBQ ribs, fried chicken and BBQ salad, oh, and if you are a fan of coleslaw, theirs is UNREAL! Watermelon & feta salad and crack rolls weren’t anything special however still nice to try. Finished everything with a mason jar filled with banana cream pie and I was one happy camper. I can’t wait to go back and try the duck (unfortunately they were out when I was there), and hopefully that happens soon!

THE FISH SHOP

Apartment hunting can work up quite an appetite so IRV stopped over at The Fish Shop on College for a quick bite and the grilled fish truly is everything its cracked up to be. We both were feaning a wholesome salad so we ordered a bed of greens topped with the fish of the day which was grouper. It was so tasty and perfectly seasoned and was definitely great value for its $11 price point. This shop is fresh fresh fresh and a perfect place to pick up dinner on the way home from a long day of work when you want something nutricious that doesn’t sacrifice taste. Skip it for date night as there are only a few picnic tables outside for sitting… unless you’re grabbing something quick on your way for an stroll in Bellwoods park.

LOBSTER… NUFF SAID

So everyone and their Uncle is talking about Rock Lobster and after going out for dinner on Tuesday for a celebratory back-to-school dinner, it’s not hard to see why. The seafood was out-of-this-world fresh, the atmosphere inviting and electric and the staff was more than hospitable, resulting in an insta favourite. The cocktail list looked sensational with most drinks requiring a special twist or homemade touch alas our starter course consistent of oysters ($2.25/e) so I opted out for a Guinness. For my main, I got 2 lobster tacos ($5/e) and my sister got the lobster roll ($14) and both were simple yet delicious and highlighted the fresh Atlantic lobster. Sure it was busy, yah okay it was crowded, however this place defines “hot spot” and with food this good, it’s worth any wait. There are two locations; the original one on Ossington and their new shop on Queen just east of Bathurst. Looking forward to going back!
