I love to eat and I love to try new foods. I enjoy eating in and out equally. I decorate cakes as a (paid) hobby. There is a 90% chance that I will order chicken in a restaurant. Forced tipping for substandard service (aka svc charge) is a BIG pet peeve.

The food at the end of the street

I was here in late June 2014 for lunch. My coworkers and I had walked all the way down Peel, looking for a restaurant open on a semi-holiday (i.e. the day before an official holiday). Here at the end of the street, attached to the Alt hotel, there was music playing outside and a few tables occupied. At last! Although there was a terrasse set up, we sat indoors where it was cool and breezy.

The menu is only two pages long but packs a variety. We stuck to the lunch table d’hote which included the main dish, a choice of soup or salad, and a coffee or tea at the end. Service was pretty prompt, perfectly bilingual, and very pleasant, but it took quite a long time to get the bill. Doggie bags were readily available. I would come back here.

Dishes I tried:

chicken and chorizo gemelli

This was the “pasta of the day” special. It was a clean-up-the-fridge type of meal, including chicken chunks, sausage chunks, sliced Cremini mushrooms (a lot of them), corn niblets, bits of red pepper, and virtually no sauce. The first couple of bites had a salty tang, but after that the rest of the plate was pretty good, quite filling.

Group Service Charges Evil dirty rotten service charges. I don't like them and I try to avoid places that slap them on to the bill. If the policy is upfront on the menu, it's more tolerable. But sometimes the charges sneak on, especially without merit.
