Milos' Craft Beer Emporium
I guess it must be this interminable winter, but I am not in the mood to cook lately. We have been eating out a little more than usual because all we want to do is bundle up on the couch and watch TV.
So, let me tell you about one of our favourite bar/restaurants here in London, Ontario... Milos' Craft Beer Emporium. We probably go to Milos' more than any other place. We're there almost every week. Sometimes we just have drinks from their excellent rotating craft beer menu, and sometimes we eat.
They have a fantastic burger, but they also have a really interesting menu featuring local meats and veggies. They often have great specials.
On our most recent visit we tried some new menu items. This is a local, pastured pork cutlet with brown butter pomme purée, deep fried Brussels sprouts, pine nuts and Creole mustard gravy. It was juicy and delicious.
And this is fried organic chicken sprinkled with piment d'esplette with collard greens, bacon cracklins (!) and buttermilk gravy. This was so fantastic! The chicken was mostly boneless and so tender and crispy. It was way to much for me to finish so Matt helped out a lot.
Milos' has the best craft beer selection in London and for miles around. You can always find something interesting to drink and the fact that the food is great too makes it one of the best finds in London. It's right downtown, the staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is great. I can't recommend this place highly enough if you're in London.
