This is the first anniversary of the opening of Suliko. A good time for another post.

My second meal in YYZ after my return was lunch today at Suliko. I got the prix fixe lunch for $9.95.
1. basket of small buns
2. five ramekins of butter and house made sauces
3. a big bowl of pickled cabbage and beets
4. a large bowl of lentil soup
4. steak sandwich on a good bun
5. house salad

Everything was fresh and tasty. Lunch can be described, for convenience, as good non- ethnic home cooking with some Georgian touches. Eg bay leaf in the lentil soup, parsley and dill in the salad, the aforementioned sauces. Large portions, another Georgian touch. Essentially, it can be the meal for the day. They now do not have a hired cook in the kitchen, it is just the two chef-owners plus prep. Fewer screw-ups, eg too much salt. Indeed I asked for no salt and everything tasted clean, except of course the pickling.

There is no longer a rigid schedule for mains at lunch. There is a choice between a meat and a fish, changing with the days.
The meat items have been, by the waitress's memory, from steak sandwich (2x week), half roast chicken, cabbage rolls, lamb shank, chicken schnitzel, But you may get something different depending on what the chefs have.
The fish is from among salmon (2x plus a week), tilapia, cod and (boo) basa.
I ask for kashe (buckwheat) as a side.

If you go for supper, remember that Georgians typically share a plate and the plates are generally large enough for two. So order easy and see how it goes.
One of you should ask for the potatoes, the other for kashhe. Then share. You will have (more than) enough of each.

I will have the lamb shank with kashe for supper tonight. $8.95.
P.S. I'm there. The harcho soup is delicious "small"- enough to share.- $3.95) Best that I ever have had.
