While in the area for an appointment, I wandered into The Butcher's Son. I was in need of dinner materials so this was quite the happy accident. I'm impressed with the meats, naked and dressed, on offer. In a bit of a hurry, I opted for marinated flattened chicken. The marinade showed off the cook's skills of balance and restraint while still delivering big flavours.
I'm in search of the world's most perfect shopping route. That's the highest quality for the most reasonable price with a minimum of running around. The Butcher's Son inspired me to snoop around it's immediate area. What do you think of this? Opinions definitely welcome.
