Arms Reach Bistro

Rob and I took a little trip out to Deep Cove on Sunday, taking in the beautiful views. It was so much quieter and slower paced out there; we plan to go back to Cates Park at some point.

We had a lunch at a small bistro overlooking the water. It seemed like the only game in town and I am glad we gave it a chance. Rob had a Bacon, Avocado and Cheese Sandwich and I had a Shaved Pork Loin Sandwich with caramelized apples and shallots and watercress.

My sandwich was incredible; tender pork, so flavourful too. The bread was perfect; crisp, but not cut your gum crunchy. The best part though, were the fries. Handcut, homemade, liberally peppered......

When I got home, I googled the restaurant and was surprised to find at least 3 blog references to it; and here I thought I was on to something new!

Hmmm... I recognized the area but I've never been to the restaurant. My grandparents used to live in Deep Cove.

Avocado and cheese always seems like a good idea, but the creamy texture and great flavor of avocado always cancels out the cheese taste for me *shrug* (not that I'd ever ask them to take it off mind you!!) hehe

The Fries sound so good right now!

Mmm, that pork sandwich looks and sounds extra good. Coincidentally, I have a pork loin roast in my fridge right now! Hmm...wonder how they cooked it.

OK, I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to post this comment. So if it shows up three times or something, you'll know what happened. Grrr.
