Eek… eating out two days in a row! But I have a very good reason for that! Miss Crys is back in town for the Thanksgiving long-weekend. It would be horrible if we weren’t allowed to catch up! (For the curious bunch… and admit it, you’re out there… Miss Crys and I used to work together in the same office and I had the privilege of tutoring her for some heavy provincial board exams. She was all ready to set up practice in town when she was suddenly whisked away from us and moved to Alberta. Boo!)
It was Miss Crys’ pick and she wanted to try Joey’s Grill, so that was where we ended up as soon as I was done with work. It’s a seat-yourself type of joint and we decided on a table by the window. Our waitress was quick to greet us with menus and very friendly to boot. In the end, I decided to get the Chicken Club and Miss Crys ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu Burger. While we waited for our food to arrive, we chatted and gossiped about stuff which I shall not divulge on here… all that needs to be said was that we had an awesome chat session :)
When our food finally arrived, we took a quick time-out so that I could take the pictures. The sky was getting pretty dark by this point and it was fairly dim inside the restaurant but the pictures still turned out without having to use a flash, which pleased me to no end. Her burger consisted of a lightly breaded piece of chicken breast, topped with a slice of ham and swiss cheese, as well as the usual burger fixings: red onion, lettuce, tomato and pickles. Instead of fries Miss Crys chose a caesar salad as her side.
My sandwich was made up of grilled chicken breast, hickory bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. It was really really good. The breast was not dry at all, which I’m always wary of when I order white chicken meat. And the bun it was served on bread that was very soft and herbed, which reminded me a lot of focaccia. And the fries it came with weren’t very greasy, and had a nice crispy texture to it. Did I mention it was good?
We both ate pretty fast (me, being starving and all) and had time for dessert. We ended up splitting a slice of the chocolate mousse cake and zOMG… it was frickin’ fantastic!! The mousse was so rich and creamy and the cake it sat on tasted a lot like a fudgy brownie. Swirls of chocolate and caramel decorated the plate, and the puffs of whipped cream and icing sugar just added to the decadence. Oh yes, you better believe we scraped that plate clean by the time we were through.
Just before we left, I ordered another slice of heaven to-go so that Mr O can take part in the experience, him being a choco-holic and all. Wasn’t that thoughful of me?
