A couple of weeks ago Hubby and I headed out to stroll around James St. and see what was happening. Strangely enough we didn’t have any plans to eat (or drink for that matter) but thankfully fate intervened…
Guess who’s got a liquor license yo!
While I was pumped to finally get my tastebuds on some tasty smoked pork and beef, I had to deal with first things first – BEER. We each ordered and thoroughly enjoyed a pint of THB pale ale which made me very happy as I’d prefer to support local business and when I can support them and really enjoy their product its a win-win!
Side note: I had the pleasure of meeting Warren from THB at Because Beer and he shared the story behind this awesome local brewery
Now onto the main event.
We weren’t planning to eat and weren’t overly hungry but I can pretty much always eat something. We decided to share a 1/2 rack of ribs, 2 southern fried chicken drumsticks and the Mac & Cheese with brisket for $18. $18!!! It was so yummy, super filling and such an amazing deal!
As I always do, I went for the starch on the table first. The Mac & Cheese was creamy, flavourful, served at the perfect temperature and it wasn’t even mushy! Score The bits of brisket added more substance and just a hint of smokiness, I’d eat that as a main dish any day of the week.
Next I dove into the ribs which were very tender and just saucy enough and even though they were a bit too smokey for my taste my Hubby LOVED them.
The southern fried chicken drumstick was absolute perfection – I mean I didn’t even know it could be that way! It was crispy, not soggy or flabby, well seasoned and the meat was moist and yummy. The chicken came with a sauce that was kind of like a spicy plum sauce and initially I was skeptical about combining it with the chicken but it just added to the heavenliness.
I will definitely be back for the southern fried chicken and the mac & cheese. And the BEER!
Wishing you Yumminess,
