So, we’re hanging out at Maison Close 1888, this funky little gastropub in Kensington Market. This place changes up its menu so often that they can’t post it online, but you’re always gonna get some real-deal, homestyle comfort food, like this hearty-har-har beef stew…and it won’t cost ya a pound of flesh!
OK, let’s break it down. The beef is super-tender, you’ve got some carrots and potatoes in a nice gravy. And then there’s mashed potatoes on the side, and a big ol’ hunk of buttery bread. And all this for 14 bucks, bro! You won’t get that kinda deal at just any ol’ establishment!
Not only that, but they’ve got some pretty great taps, too. Normally, when I drink Canuck IPA, it comes in a can, but they’ve got a hook-up at Great Lakes Brewery to serve it straight from the keg–and I gotta say, it’s better that way!
