Happy Summerlicious, dude! This time of year, a whole buncha restaurants all over this city are serving up three course dinners for as little as 33 bucks. If there’s one thing I like more than eating, it’s scoring a great deal on some sweet eats, so you know I’m all over this like Donkey Kong on a beer bong, bro!!!!
So, we’re hanging out at The Wickson Social, this funky little joint just a drunken stumble from Yonge and Wellesley. This place has all kindsa craft beers on tap and in bottles ‘n cans, but when it comes to the Summerlicious menu, it’s all about the pork:
Dude, you can’t stop this pork hock! And they put it in a paté? No way! This terrine on toast is like a fancy-schmancy breakfast in Flavourtown!
And hey, because Summerlicious deserves a nice summer beer, we’re starting things off with this tasty witbier from New Limburg. Hey, if it comes in a goblet, then it’s gotta be good, bro!
We started off with pork…and now it’s time for more pork. They brine this baby for 48 hours before tossing it on the grill, then throwing it down with some spinach, dumplings and yam purée. Dude, this is body by yam purée!!!
But you KNOW we’ve still got room for dessert, bro! This wasn’t the best tiramisu I’ve ever had, but it sure paired nicely with this Stationmaster Stout from Junction Craft Brewing. Imma chugga-chugga choo-choo this brewski, bro!!!!
