Or Who Said Buffalo Was Boring?
Located steps from our hotel on Delaware Ave. we stopped in at Merge to please the vegetarians in our travelling troupe.
The ambience was upscale-hippy. Our thoughts: We have found our hippy paradise.
Frenchie and I ordered half-pints – our waitress suggested a wit mixed with a framboise. Tasty.
Frenchie ordered the club with turkey bacon and sweet potato fries – they used pure honey as the dip. Apparently it was quite good.
I had a vegetarian option – smothered sweet potato fries with curried lentils and topped with spinach and cheddar. We thought this must be the healthiest version of poutine created. Plus it was so tasty. I have high hopes of designing my own version of this dish.
Mrs. Vegetarian herself had a falafel. Not the most authentically middle eastern tasting falafel – missing the intense garlic sauce maybe? But a good take on a falafel nonetheless. It was stuffed with fresh greens and a homemade sweet sauce.
When we received our bill we couldn’t believe that it rang in at around $30 for 3 people (granted we are used to Ontario pricing we tends to be about 20% more at restaurants) especially given the up-scale ambience. Our Thoughts: Why isn’t this restaurant in Kingston!
