Food: the Portly Chef

 As they say; NEVER trust a skinny chef!

Last night I went to a pre-Christmas celebration with my family at a restaurant called “the Portly Chef” where everything is cooked using fresh local ingredients.  The generously plated and incredible tasting food made up for what may have been a bit lacking in ambience (but not the company, mind you). We all said it was one of the best restaurant meals we’ve had in a long time.  A few photos:

Lemon Curd Cheesecake – soooo good!

I may have overdressed

A bit over dressed (and a bit under dressed)

And that was just my portion!

No; we really ended up sampling and sharing everything.
