lucky penny is ready for patio season… buh-bye, snow and hail. eviction papers are in the post.
in the meantime, it is all about the stockyards. along st. clair west (yessssss, north of bloor *wink*), the menu features diner classics and comfort foods… specialties include a bbq pulled pork sandwich, animal-style burger (her favourite), fall-off-the-bone, smoked all-day ribs, and mouth-watering buttermilk fried chicken. aaaaaand… what about their french fries? definitely on her top five list in the city.
on sundays that call for brunch, cute boyfriend and his southern belle *always* start with the p&b—grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich with dulce de leche on challah. the lovebirds split biscuits with sausage gravy, fried chicken and belgian waffles (drenched in a chili maple molasses citrus glaze). yummers!
when parched, order their homemade ginger lemonade… not always available, it is light and refreshing; the perfect companion to a hearty meal that would make even paula deen proud.
***fair warning… the food is coma-inducing, so be sure to schedule an afternoon nap!
