Getting Iggy with it!
Prior to a fun night out with my fellow #PRatNC grads.We decided to make a quick pit stop at Iggy’s Pub and Grub restaurant located in Fonthill, Ontario. Iggy’s is one of my favourite local restaurants because of its amazing selection of local craft beers. I always enjoy ordering their “Flights” which allow you to try and small selection of beers that they feature on tap that particular month. Check out my classmate Jeff Blay’s blog on Niagara Craft Beers.
Onto the grub, my friends and I were super intrigued by Iggy’s menu because it features a variety of local ingredients and interesting combinations.
As an appetizer we ordered their PBM’s (Peanut Butter Meatballs). While I was a little hesitant to give these a try, I was beyond impressed.The meatballs come covered in a sweet marinara sauce and have a hint of a smokey peanut flavour in every bite. They are fantastic, which caused me to regret my decision to not order their PBM sub. I’ll have to save that for next time.
For dinner I ordered their fish tacos and fries. The meal came with (as you can see) a huge amount of hand cut fries, which really every restaurant should have. But I always get excited when restaurants have fish tacos because they are such a nice alternative to meat tacos. My meal came with 2 pan-fried haddock fish tacos came with coleslaw, guacamole, bruschetta and chipotle sauce. They were very tasty but I had absolutely no use for the side of sour cream and salsa. If anything they could have used a little more kick (which is surprising, coming from my bland palate).
All in all, Iggy’s still remains one of my favourite local restaurants to visit because of its friendly servers, amazing craft beer selection and wonderfully curious menu.
I would rate my particular experience at Iggy’s Pub and Grub:
