After a delicious meal at Keriwa Cafe (1690 Queen St. West, east of Roncesvalles), my dining companions and I were each handed a stapled-shut brown paper bag. The waiter explained it was a gift, and told us to enjoy its contents tomorrow morning. The small but very thoughtful gesture easily extended our already great impression of the meal. Of course, none of us were patient enough to wait until the next day so as soon as the waiter was out of earshot my friend tore open his bag and we each had a peek. What we found inside had us grinning from ear to ear.
Inside the bag are two homemade miniature cinnamon buns. I must admit that only one made it through the night. Even though I was stuffed with our aboriginal-inspired meal of Bison Shortribs, Duck Breast, Rainbow Trout and Butternut Squash side, there was still room for a delightfully dense and sticky bun. And truth be told, I kinda want six more. Chef Aaron Joseph Bear Robe changes the menu monthly so that’s all the excuse I need to go back repeatedly and enjoy their take-home treat every 30 days.
