We were at Cosmo (St.Clair-Dufferin) last Saturday for lunch. I wanted to try the new soup but it wasn't ready. So we just ordered mains and dessert. I had the bunless lamburger with a nice sauce and frites, garnished with a bit of red onion which I also ate. The Guv had a Nicoise like salad, but with salmon. Then the soup showed up. It was carrot and ginger in a water and potato base, and was delicious. A bit sweet from the carrot, just highlighted by the ginger, smooth and refined yet tasty. It was a very pleasing way out from my lamburger (with onion) and salted frites, and quite OK after the salmon Nicoise. Dessert was an apple tart in a Linzer pastry. The wine was a Hungarian red, half Caberent Sauvignon and half Kekfrankos,(a Portugese grape I was told), Szermeley Soproni 2001. Notwithstanding that it was modestly priced,($12.95 LCBO, I bought a case)it was pleasing and interesting on its own, certainly different, and went nicely with the cooking.
A very nice meal from beginning to end, and not expensive.
