End of a Summer Fling

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but it’s been a whirlwind, as you’ll see based on the next few posts, but I’m back at it!

Since summer has come to an end, I’m realizing how many delicious food and drink endeavours I’ve got to experience in Kingston. I’ll share a couple that really stood out this time around.

To kick it off with a classic… Stone City Ales: What more can I say than YES?! Their beer is always so fresh and the introduction of new flavours several times a week keeps things exciting and intriguing. Not only does the beer speak for itself, but when they started creating charcuterie boards and snacks, I truly found my little slice of heaven. The boards boast several types of cured meats and local cheeses along with some pickled vegetables (changes depending on who is making it), bread crisps all paired with dijon and honey. Let’s just say I went back twice in a week for that exact same thing–couldn’t get enough!

With the end of summer and the beginning of a new chapter for some of our friends (including us), comes a goodbye dinner. We decided to do it up big for our last proper night.

Aquaterra is always a nice, upscale, impeccable restaurant. The service is always bar none and the food just never ends.

They always bring out fresh bread with a new flavour of butter (this time was lemon thyme) and an amuse-bouche (this time was a type of shrimp crostini). We ordered appetizers, salads, entrees, and dessert on top of all this and were essentially unable to move by the end of the night! My boyfriend had the beet salad, I had a caprese salad and we split the escargot appetizer. For the entrees, I had the eggplant parmesan (everyone agreed this was the best!), one friend had the roasted chicken with whipped potatoes, the other friends had the baja salmon and my boyfriend had the wild mushroom ravioli. Check it out:

Perhaps we’ll see you next summer, Kingston.
