My hubby and I met my parents, down in Port Credit, this past Sunday evening. We were hungry, so we decided to try out The Stooges Family Restaurant, located right behind the Starbucks. We had previously eaten at the restaurant, when it was called Helen’s, and always enjoyed their Fish & Chips. So when we saw that The Stooges had Fish & Chips on their menu, we decided to give it a try. Good thing I asked the wait-staff, how big the portions were, because when she said it was pretty big – my hubby and I decided to share.
Glad we did too!! We each got a decent sized piece of Halibut, with fries and a mound of coleslaw to share. The coating around the fish was thin, light and crisp. Can’t go wrong with fries, and the oil/vinegar coleslaw was great too…but I’m partial to oil/vinegar coleslaw over creamy. My Dad got the Fish & Chips as well, and took half of it home. My Mom got the Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich, and took half of it home well. The prices are reasonable for the portions you get as well. Our Fish & Chips were $16 and my Mom’s choice was either $11 or $14 (can’t remember LOL). If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, give them a try, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
My hubby and I finally paid a visit to this coffee house, after months and months of passing it by, and wanting to check it out. It’s a cozy little place, with a well-versed barista at the ready, to make whatever you like.
We decided to have iced coffee, so he made us iced Americanos, since they were out of drip coffee for that day. We also got a piece of iced lemon pound cake to share…one of many baked goodies, brought in by a local baker in the area. The Americanos were freshly crafted, and the pound cake had just the right amount of lemon for us. Most times we do take-out, but on this day, we chose to enjoy our drink and cake, at one of the nearby tables. The Guilty Dog, has a nice atmosphere, and we’ll definitely stop by again soon. If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, you should give them a try. They’re located in the plaza just west of Port Credit Harbour, right after the Royal Bank. For a bit more info, you can peruse their page below, as they don’t have a dedicated website.
We saw this shop, while walking around the area last Sunday, and decided to go in – as it was new to us. It was a cute little tea shop and lounge, where you can enjoy a cup of tea or iced tea.
After perusing their teas, we decided to have, one of their daily special iced teas. We chose to try the Iced Green Tea with Tropical Pineapple and Fresh Strawberries. I asked for it to be unsweetened, and glad I did, because the fruit had sweetened it enough naturally. It was really good, and around $3, which is a wee bit expensive for it’s medium size. But, since it tasted so good on a warm sunny day, I let that pass!! If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, and want to check it out, it’s just passed the Starbucks on Lakeshore Road West.
My hubby and I were taking a walk in Port Credit, this past weekend, and they had their annual Buskerfest. Since we got there at the end of the fest, we decided to check out the food stalls/trucks, that were in Memorial Park. We weren’t that hungry, but when we came across the cute signage for Beaver Cheeks, I was intrigued to say the least. From what I could see of them, on the cooking rack, the lady had them on in the back – they looked like round pillows of lovely dough. The guy manning the till, told us that they were a recipe of her Grandmother’s, that made them light and airy – rather then doughy like most donut holes. At this point I was hooked, and order 5 for $3.50, my hubby and I to share.
After having them warmed up in a small fryer, and rolled in cinnamon sugar, they passed them over to us for our enjoyment!! They didn’t disappoint either. They were nummy, sweet pillows of dough, which are a bad combination – as I could’ve eaten another order…or two LOL I was told that they only do festivals, the Buskerfest being their first, to feel out if people would enjoy their product. So, if you’re ever in Port Credit and there’s a festival going on in Memorial Park, take a detour and see if they’re there. You won’t be disappointed!!
