The other evening we were on our way to UVic to listen to a concert by the Vis a Vis Saxophone Quartet and stopped at the Med Grill in Royal Oak. In general I have enjoyed the food at the Med Grill, but this time things were not so good.
Sheila started with a an order of Med bread which was also really too big.
Sheila had a tuna tataki and it was good, but it would have been more than enough on its own.
I had the pulled pork flat wrap. It is hard to say much good about it. The flavours were muddy and it was dry. The wrap was very dry from the baking and adding nothing to the meal. The pulled pork was bland, no sense of the amazing crust bits it should have. The dripping fat and the gelatin from the connective tissue that has broken down was missing.
In the end, the carpaccio and tataki were done as well as I think I could do at home, I have not done either yet. The Med Bread is something that would more trouble than I want to do so it is worth it there. The burger and flat wrap were not better than what I could do at home.
We are likely to go back, though we are unlikely to order an appetizer and main again. All the portions are simply too large.
