I'm growing in front of you! {Victor Restaurant & Bar}

Appetizer: Bread (fresh, warm, + fluffy) with house preserves (mildly tangy + sweet), organic olive oil and balsamic vinegar (so good!). The colour on the preserves photo looks weird but I'm too lazy to correct it. I should really just leave all food photog. to the dogre...
Mains: Berkshire Pork Chop (juicy, flavourful, and succulent) with confit potato (delicious), preserved lemon and rice "sauce" (delicious!), oregano and chickweed (similar to seaweed...I don't like seaweed but I likey chickweed!) I fell in love. The dogre had to listen to me gush during and post-meal. I miss it already (seriously, it's my current desktop wallpaper); Diamond Willow Organic Beef Strip Loin (had its moments but not as good as my chops!) with spinach pie (nice) and organic carrots and olive jus (dogre really liked).
Dessert: Flourless chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and cherries (also really tasty, minus the cherries which were soaked in wine). For drinks, we had a mojito, long island iced tea, Irish coffee, and Baileys coffee (yum, yum, yum, yum).
Victor Restaurant & Bar. Nice ambiance, knowledgeable + friendly staff, and an emphasis on sustainability and high quality organic ingredients. On the left, butter cubes as previously mentioned. You can never have too much butter! (Meryl Streep as Julia Child was awesome!)
