The Ladies Who Lunch (Part 3)

Recommended Posts

 Some days only diner food will do. We were in Waterdown again and Angels Diner checked all the right boxes. Click.

 We needed dark rye flour and Kerry is still hoping to find a griddle plate to use in her CSO at home. She has one in the CSO at work.  In the same plaza as Angels Diner is a thrift store and a Bulk Barn.  We got the rye flour but no luck on a griddle plate.

 For Kerry the Amarillo chicken breast with beans and sauce picante.

 For me liver and onions with fries and coleslaw. The liver was gorgeously cooked and they must’ve read my mind about the amount of onions on top.

 

Once or twice a year I love slumming it!

@Anna N, we have 5 diners, maybe 6 within 20 minutes of our house (NJ is the diner state). DH and I have a favorite "low brow" and "high brow" diner, and you are correct, sometimes nothing beats a good diner for a hearty basic meal.

I find for the most part that they excel at what they do. I don’t recall having a meal in a diner that didn’t live up to my expectations.  And they have the welcome mat figured out to a T.

Today we returned to Pintoh Cuisine for some warming Thai food.  It was bitterly cold here with gusty winds.

 Beer for me. Click

 

 

 We should have thought to take a photograph of our lunch as it was brought to the table in a Tiffin tin and then disassembled by our server.

Yesterday Kerry and I found ourselves with errands to do in the far reaches of the Vaughn, Richmond Hill, Markham area of Toronto.  We decided on a return visit to 

Emperor Hotpot.

I think there might be a couple of ingredients missing as I do remember broccoli and mushrooms.
