The Ladies Who Lunch (Part 3)


Recommended Posts

Today we enjoyed Korean food from the Owl of Minerva in Hamilton. It is one of the most difficult online sites to navigate. I really wanted to try the beef bone soup in white stock but apparently it is not available from the Hamilton location. That said I thoroughly enjoyed my Kalbi.

Kalbi for me along with steamed dumplings, rice and, of course, banchan.

Kerry had the same but with Bulgogi. 
 

Lots of leftovers including the complementary deep fried dumplings which will get reheated in the Cuisinart steam oven.

There is no logic to it! Even here in the frozen north we’ve learned the secret of air conditioning and those people who live on the Indian continent do not fast through all the hot months. That said, @Kerry Bealand I consider consuming Indian food mostly in the colder months. I think this has as much to do with the wonderful warm atmosphere of the restaurant where we usually enjoy this food. And so with spring supposedly around the corner we ventured to make today our last Indian feast for this winter season. Unfortunately it still is not safe to dine in restaurants as far as we are concerned so we enjoyed it at my house.

Both plates have the same selection. I like much smaller meals these days so I can enjoy leftovers for days!

 

We have Madras lamb curry, chicken rogan josh, basmati rice, paratha, naan, onion bhajis.

It doesn’t hurt that I’m happy to help support a small business. But when I logged on to look at the specials the website was still showing Easter week. Have they gone out of business I wondered. On Wednesday morning shortly after 930 I made a phone call to determine if they were still offering lunch specials. I spoke with the owner who is very delightful and he basically said that Wednesday special was always wonton soup! He sounded busy so I did not want to raise the question office out of date website. Still, an out of date website could hurt him so I hope he finds time to update it soon.

As I expected @Kerry Bealopted for the soup along with a couple of spring rolls.

I had my usual favourite Pork Wreck with spring rolls.  With the extra spring rolls that Kerry left in my fridge I made three meals out of this!  
 

I just logged onto the website and it is still showing the Easter week specials!

I almost forgot to post lunch this week. @Kerry Beal mentioned she’d enjoyed pizza from a place near where she works in Hamilton. Good pizza is hard to come by here so I thought that this would be a good choice.

Kerry’s selection was black olives sun-dried tomato and pepperoni.

Mine was my usual mushroom and pepperoni.
