Crab cakes, nduja and clams — oh my!!!

Now, I don’t always eat seafood, but when I do, you KNOW it’s gotta be funkalicious, bro! So we’re hanging out at Pink Sky, this funky seafood joint on King West, where I had a legit lobster mac ‘n cheese last year. But if there’s one thing I learned from the last time we were here, it’s that eating only one thing isn’t gonna be enough food for me. So that’s why I made sure to order at least three things this time around…

We’re starting off with a couple crab cakes, coming in hot ‘n crispy, straight outta fryer, on a whole bed of tartar sauce. These crab boys weren’t as good as the ones down the street, but they’re still pretty tasty.

But now it’s time for the main event. We’re talkin’ steamed clams in a spicy broth with couscous, nduja sausage and a peck of piquillo peppers. Now, the first few clams up top weren’t very spicy, but once you get into that broth, with a few little bites of nduja, it really kicks things up a notch!!!!

But you KNOW we’ve still got room for dessert — and with just four things on the dessert menu, it’s basically a no-brainer. We’re going with the chocolate olive oil cake, with toasted almond ice cream. Now, I couldn’t tell that there was olive oil in here, but the cake was nice ‘n moist, with plenty of chocolate to go around. If I could get that in King’s Cake size, that would be amazeballs, bro!!!!

Mac Daddy lobster mac and cheese @ Pink Sky

Now, in my books, mac and cheese is more of a side dish, not a full meal. But when I heard that Pink Sky, this funky seafood joint on King West, was serving up a lobster mac and cheese with a full lobster inside, you KNOW I had to check it out, bro!!!!

I gotta say, this was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. But while the dish wasn’t exactly huge, it actually had some of the biggest noodles I’ve ever seen in a mac and cheese. I mean normally, I can get 4-5 macaroni noodles in every bite, but this rigatoni was so massive that I had to cut each individual noodle in half, bro! Throw in some big chunks of lobster and a nice, creamy cheese sauce, and I’m not complaining — even though I could probably eat at least two of these.

While you won’t find any craft beer here, they do have Hop Valley Bubble Stash IPA on tap. I hadn’t even heard of this beer until I found it at the Scotiabank Arena a year or two ago (apparently it’s brewed by Creemore), but I gotta say, for an IPA, it checks all the boxes. It could even give Goose Island IPA a run for its money as my new favourite macrobrew! Just stay away from the Goose Green Line APA, though… I learned that in Chicago, bro!!!!!!!
