A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_1588Weekends at the Local are always crowded. We manage to score seats relatively quickly right behind the bar.

IMG_1589The Local is a bit noisy, it is after all a bar. There is a good mix of people here, friends catching up, families with young children, and people coming in to watch the game at the bar.

IMG_1583We start off with the hummus plate ($9) which comes with grilled pita wedges, carrots and cucumber.

IMG_1584We also start with the fried pickles ($5) that are lightly battered and fried with a tart kick and a spicy dipping sauce (mayo).

IMG_1587Two of us get the burger ($11). The prime beef is sourced from the “Godfather of Beef”, John Dewer and comes with a side of hand cut fries. The burger and fries are both really dense, we can’t even finish the whole meal. You can add bacon or an egg for $1 more.

IMG_1586We also order the special flatbread of the night, with sausage, kale and tomato ($13). The flatbread is thin and crispy and came drizzled with a spicy aioli that was a little much for me.

IMG_1593We ended the night off right with a cookie sandwich tower ($7). A chocolate chip cookie and a white chocolate cranberry cookie sandwiching 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream on top of hot sauce and drizzled with caramel sauce. I loved the caramel sauce and the cookies were pretty darn delicious, with a nice crisp to the edges but soft and chewy on the inside! Yum!! The service was very good, our waitress was attentive and close by most of the night. We weren’t rushed, even though the place was pretty full, which was nice.
