Mill St Brew Pub
Nelson: Had some oversea guests over and decided to take them to the Distillery district for dinner for a Canadian meal. Started with a pulled short rib poutine: fresh cut fries topped with Alfredo, Tankhouse Ale braised Angus short ribs, green onions and Ontario cheese curds, smothered in gravy. This is really really tasty, hearty and satisfying. I bet it is really unhealthy for you too.
The next app is a spinach, artichoke and stilton dop served with fresh baked pretzel bread. Interesting idea to serve with pretzel bread, but unfortunately this dish wasn't memorable (or I have a bad memory). Sounds like a dish with potential.
I had the Distillery Burger, topped with Mill St. Coffee Porter BBQ sauce crispy pancetta, melted Swiss cheese and crispy onions. Really tasty again, although I thought the crispy pancetta would go really well with a burger, but it turns out that bacon is better. I thought the crispness would be a nice contrast, but it was almost too crisp. Stringy onions on top of a burger is always good. Plus their fries are fried perfectly and salted just right, which means it is yummy.
Kitty had the grilled flatiron steak sandwich, marinated in Mill St. Coffee Porter BBQ sauce, topped with caramelized onion, melted Swiss cheese and a zesty horseradish cream cheese spread, served on artisan bread. The meat was really fatty and the onion bread just went perfectly with the steak. The cheese and cheese spread were a nice complement to a well put together steak sandwich.
They really know what they are doing at Mill St Brew Pub. Great Canadian Pub food!
