It started on Thursday night when I went to Terroni's Bar Centrale with a couple of girlfriends for wine and tapas. It was delicious, and deliciously decorated as well :) This is the ground floor level of the new Terroni Bar Centrale in Summerhill - I recommend popping by if you're in the mood for some delicious Italian noshing.
via Terroni - note the gorgeous herringbone floors and marble base on the prep area (hard to see in this pic, but impressive)
Friday night I met up with my friend M for dinner at Victory Cafe (she is the talented one who designed my blog header). I enjoyed my first ever Shandy (1/2 beer, 1/2 gingerale) - and think that may well be my drink of choice this summer (note to self: buy gingerale). The interior of Victory could use a makeover, but the patio was a hot spot and where we sat. Check out my delicious meal of pulled pork sandwich and mac&cheese (so brilliant to have that as a side dish!):
(half of that came home with me for lunch on Saturday)
Saturday started out healthy with a simple egg scramble with sauteed mushrooms, onions, asparagus and tomatoes - great pre-workout breakfast:
Unfortunately no matter how many times we said "We really should take pictures of the food before we eat it", this was the best we could do for our favourite item:
Comida del Pueblo. Here were their offerings:
We did wait a ridiculously long time for grilled cheese..it was good...but not as good as the spring roll....
Here are some more pics:
Cornbread grilled cheese (we should have gone with this one)... via NOW
via NOW - I saw this photo being taken - they waited 1.5 hours for lobster roles from Rock Lobster (we didn't wait to try it...)
That, my friends, is the weekend in a nutshell. A lot of great food and friends, and in between all that, spending time outside soaking in the beautiful spring weather.
