Starfish Oyster Bed & Grill
Nelson @ Adelaide & Church: The owner of this restaurant won a world championship for oyster shucking, so right away this seems promising. Kitty loves oysters and that's partly why we are here. Of course we ordered an oyster platter (The Paddy's Mix, a selection at the shucker's choice), sea scallop and littleneck clams. For the oysters, the one on the top (of the small plate) tasted a bit better than the one on the left. The clam at the bottom wasn't that good tasting for me as the best was the scallop. Very tasty platter though and can be enjoyable as just a snack if you are in the area.
The bread looked nice, but I can't remember the taste or texture unfortunately. I'll have to go back and remind myself again.
Someone ordered the Grilled Angus Ribeye with caramalized onion mash, mushroom marmalade and green peppercorn sauce as although I didn't taste it, it sure looked good.
I ordered the Wild Irish Mussels steamed in white wine, garlic and cream, served with house cut fries. This was really tasty, but had a slight bitter taste, perhaps from the cilantro. Still good though, but the best part was actually the fries. They were oily, salty and had a bit of rosemary which was a nice touch. They were excellent (served with mayo, European style) and I really enjoyed them.
Kitty ordered the Pan roasted elk with white bean cassoulet, apple cider braised red cabbage and apple-herb cream sauce. The elk was very similar to beef and tasted really good without much gamey flavour. I didn't really try the sides, but they looked appetizing even though I don't usually like those two typically.
Great restaurant and looking forward to visiting again!
