Fasha and I were strolling up and down Main St, looking for a place to have dinner. We didn’t actually stroll that far. We ended up picking Crave on Main – a restaurant that strives to feature fresh, local and sometimes organic ingredients.
The restaurant was quite narrow inside and its tables were similar in that nature. I had a DSLR bag with me that night, so a 2-top table wasn’t the most comfortable seating (the waiter said he was “saving” the 4-top by the window that I requested, but it remained empty when we left).
I ordered the Organic Beef Crave Burger ($12). My thinking was that if it’s named after the restaurant, it should be spectacular right?
Well, it wasn’t terrible… but it wasn’t extraordinary either – just ordinary. While burger patty was moderately moist, some parts were still pink, which sorta disturbed me. On one hand, I would prefer not to get E-coli. On the other, I was really hungry so just cut out the pink pieces and continued eating haha!
The toppings were the usual. I didn’t eat the pickle, but I imagined it as being difficult to eat without deep-throating it.
As for the fries, they were well-seasoned but I was displeased with how they were all so darn stubby. It was like they were from the bottom of the bucket.
Feeling particularly “English,” Fasha ordered the Halibut & Chips ($18) that was served with coleslaw and tartar sauce.
He thought that the halibut tasted pretty good. Crispy batter and flaky meat. However, he found the portion to be quite small.
