The Week in Yum July 26- August 1 Queen, Patois, Kadbanu and Recipieces This Week
|I ate nothing but I took The Kid to see Queen and that was THE highlight of my week, so there|

I dropped in to the opening night party for Kadbanu, a new Iranian restaurant at 771 Dundas St West and the joint was hopping! Unfortunately it was hopping so hard that I didn't get to taste any food. I had that delicious vodka/cucumber cocktail down there and walked around a bit and managed to get some photos of a few dishes that they had prepared and set out and it all looked delicious. In order to taste the food I would have had to postition myself in the path of the servers leaving the kitchen with their trays of snacks and I still probably would have had to elbow people out of the way to get anything before it was all gone. As frustrating as this is when I came to sample so I could tell you guys about the food, it is also a sign that everything must have been delicious. I know that their other restaurant, Banu, is a popular spot on Queen West and I look forward to going back some time soon for dinner because everything looked and smelled amazing.

Luckily for hungry me, Patois is basically across the street, so Shack and I went there and had our first, proper dinner since they opened. I dream about Craig Wong's OG fried chicken so that was a no brainer but the tempura nori green beans were even better, if that is possible. If he doesn't put those on the permanent menu, I might have to revolt. In fact, I took home a bit of leftover chicken and green beans for The Kid's lunch the next day and even after spending the night in the fridge in a container, neither was in the least bit soggy and he ate them both cold.

Ah, I knew him when......
