Our Southern BBQ Supper at Model Milk
Model Milk has a long tradition of serving a 3-course family-style meal ($40 pp) on Sundays. To keep guests coming back, their Sunday Supper menu changes every week to make every dining experience a joyous surprise.
Last month, in between all the crazy travels, Kev and I had the pleasure to have a romantic date night over a hearty southern bbq meal at Model Milk. And guess what? As if the chef could feel my yearning for a tropical vacation, the theme of the night was the Caribbean!
To start the night off, the bartender whipped up a rum-based cocktail called Big Man Thing ($13, 2.5 oz), combining Caña Brava and London Dock with Grand Marnier, pineapple and lime juice for a taste of the tropics. Orgeat was mixed in to bring a floral fragrance and nutty almond quality to this delightful cocktail.

Jamaican beef patties were first brought to the table to boost our appetite. Shaped like an empanada, a Jamaican patty consists of flaky yellow crust stuffed with spicy beef and spices. With only one bite, an explosion of flavor filled the mouth. To tone down the intense flavour, I dipped the patty into the shallot vinaigrette, which also helped refresh the palate.
If you haven’t tried fried plantains yet, get on it! These golden goodness were terribly addicting, especially with the lemony spiced crema! They have now become my new favourite snack.
