TORONTO BEER WEEK: Spaghetti & Meatballs & Beer

So, Monday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and it’s too bad I missed it, cuz this local craft brew woulda been aarr-fect. We’re hanging out at Lisa Marie, this funky Queen West joint run by the guy who does the Fidel Gastro food truck. And for Toronto Beer Week, they’re serving up five-dollar pints of Polly Want a Pilsner, this righteous microbrew from Hop City:

Now, I’m a pretty big fan of pilsner beers, and this one is light, crisp and refreshing. And while it’s only five bucks on its own, they had a deal on tonight where it comes with a great big bowl of spaghetti for just 20 bucks combined:

Now those are some massive meatballs, bro! I think these are even bigger than the steak I had last night. The meat-to-pasta ratio of this dish is about three-to-one, just the way I like it. And the balls are cooked perfectly, super rich and delicious. There almost aren’t enough noodles to go with ‘em. But dude, you almost don’t need spaghetti when the meatballs are so outta-bounds. I could eat about eight of these off a flip-flop…and still have room for dessert!
