But at least we had food. We started the first day with lunch at Boqueria, a Spanish Tapas place, on Spring Street. I always like to try new places and we've eaten here before but the food is consistent and we were hungry after flying in and having to wait for our room to be ready. They have a nice take on Spanish tapas especially Tortilla and some lovely Chipirones with a Frisse salad. I was trying to remember to take pictures of the food but I sometimes forgot and starting eating.
Then feeling peckish in the afternoon, we walked over to The Dutch on Prince and Sullivan. They keep the bar open from 3 to 5:30 but no food until 5:30 on the dot so we stopped in. The bar was busy and jumping for Tuesday afternoon cocktails.
For dinner we went to Miss Lilly's for some Jamaican goodies. Another happening, busy place. Tiny place with lots of squeezing around bodies to get to the bar while waiting for the table, but it's all good. Food was amazing. Great music, they have a radio station called Miss Lily's, and they also have a juice bar and a record shop all on the same corner. We had grilled corn with coconut and then I had the Shrimp curry and hubby had the classic jerk chicken which he pronounced amazing. We eat a fair bit of Jamaican food here in Toronto (and hubby's background is Jamaican) and this was really good. I would have gone back a few more times.
More on day two later on.
