It's been a bit of a grueling trip. Bogged down with Bags and with my family in tow we arrive at the Pub much like Clark Griswold arrived at Wally World…. tired, beat, weary and just wanting what we came for. I giggle to myself thinking how odd it would be to now hear "Sorry Folks, Pub's closed, the Moose outside should have told ya".
It's so often we eat truly great food and enjoy it for what it is. However, it's an altogether different experience when we enjoy something so very special and unique that it's branded on our minds forever such that it's impossible to speak of the best of the best without immediately defaulting to a particular dish.
