App-tastic at Bier Market Don Mills
Out with some friends at Don Mills, we grabbed a table at the Bier Market to have some appetizers. Don Mills is a busy place! I was happy we got a table! A big, bright venue with lots of windows and smiling faces....or maybe it's just the beer talking.
The beer selection was staggering. I was glued to the menu trying to pick just one. They have every possible type of beer I could imagine and I wanted all of them! This is a great place to try something new and find a new !
We decided to share some appetizers. We went with the Fresh Oysters, Pretzel Calamari and Candied Bacon & Potato Flatbread. The oysters were fantastic. So fresh! It came with 3 sauces plus lots of lemons. A great start! The calamari had no pretzel taste what so ever. As far as calamari goes, it was pretty standard, but it had no remnants of pretzel. The flatbread was delightful. Who doesn't love candied bacon?! It was full of great toppings. Lots of bacon, creme fraiche and soft potato. It was surprisingly balanced. We were stuffed, but we did not leave one slice!
The service was cheerful. Everyone seemed in good spirits and not rushed. Our server understood that there's a lot of choice and we never felt rushed. She checked on us periodically, but as it always goes, we had mouths full of food, so we could only nod in approval. Story of my life! :P
I'd love to go back! There are so many beers left for me to try and many items on the menu looked so good! Can't wait to get together with some friends and revisit!
