Coast Burger: Caramelized onions, aged cheddar, garlic, aioli, fries - 2

J's comment > not bad; beef patty very juicy, but unfortunately really crumbly and falls apart as you dig your fork in, but I'd rather take this burger over the one @ Black & Blue's Fridays' special which, whilst had more grill flavor, wasn't as juicy as this one

Haddock Po’Boy: Brioche bun, butter lettuce, tartar sauce & old bay fries - 2

J's comment > not bad; in fact, the fish was much much better than the Ling Cod fish and chips last Thursday; bun was really soft; unfortunately fries were lukewarm, texture hard; FYI, this + a Rickard's beer is on special every Thursday for $11 (not on the menu). Check out the list of all types of burgers being featured / offered by the Global Group here, and my review of the Black and Blue burger here

Dessert Sampler
(left to right)

Honeycomb nibs - 2+

Chestnut cheesecake - 2+

Chili & lime-tequila chocolate lollipops - 2

Coconut & passion fruit panna cotta - 1

J's comment > loved the honeycomb nibs covered w chocolate (didn't really care for the chocolate either way) but the honeycomb was crisp yet airy; cheesecake was surprisingly good as I'm not a fan of chestnut, the chestnut flavor was really light, so that definitely scored points on my front, really creamy texture, base unfortunately completely soft and not crisp at all; chocolate lollipops were just your avg chocolate truffles; panna cotta was stiff and flavor of passion fruit covering the top completely overwhelmed the beautiful subtlety that defines the panna cotta

Rickard's Red beer - 2

J's comment > not bad, slightly stronger flavors than the white
