Church and Wellesley, Toronto
The EatnMingle group recently hit up Smith restaurant up on Wellesley for an event featuring their Summerlicious menu.
Their menu was well varied with a select few type of dishes that all sounds fantastic.
I opted for the Moroccan pulled lamb with pita chips and coleslaw for the entree. It was a great choice; the tenderness of the pulled lamb between crisp pitas went perfectly with the creamy slaw. I found the whole dish worked in terms of both flavor and texture.
As a main I was torn between the steak and the crispy hen, after uming and ahing I ended up going with the crispy hen and found myself a little disappointed that it wasn’t as crispy as I would have liked. Apart from that small problem the rest of the elements of the dish were great; with the flavors on the plate and hen just amazing together.
Lastly was dessert. I was feeling full and decided to choose the least rich sounding dessert, the strawberry shortcake. I won’t lie, I persuaded everyone to let me try theirs and I will say now the lemon meringue was my personal favorite, the chocolate a close second with the strawberry shortcake being my disappointment of the night.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Smith and would definitely consider going back sometime in the future.
