Before you shout out, “I’ve had tacos out of a wagon before”, keep in mind that the taco is merely the vehicle to get the food to your mouth – and this is not your usual taco. Tonight, Flat Rock Cellars brings another first to Canadian wineries.
Tonight was the official launch of “Gastronomo Vagabundo”, which Adam describes as “Really good food in a non-pretentious way.” And he’s right about that. On his ever changing menu (which on some days changes hourly depending on what’s growing in the Flat Rock vegetable garden) we sampled the Flat Rock Garden Fresh Salad, complete with a thing called a Mouse Melon (sourced from Tree & Twig Heirloom Vegetable Farm), it’s the size of a marble, looks like a watermelon but tasted like a cucumber. A Bangkok Dangerous Taco: with homemade authentic Thai coconut Red Curry marinated beef short rib. A Don Caprese Taco: this one has a Canadian twist on a Italian-Asian dish, tempura dipped and friend mozzarella cheese; and for dessert: Jordan peaches and tropical fruit with a sweet chili salt dip (it smells fishy due to the ground up shrimp, sounds odd but it is really very delicious).
