South of Temperance

I met the lovely Lisa of Hip & Urban Girl Guide this evening at South of Temperance. I love the story of how I met Lisa and I am glad we are planning to get together every couple of months.

I have wanted to check out South of Temperance since the Executive Director at my work mentioned going there for lunch in the summer. Sadly, they could not accommodate 10 of us lunch. I missed another opportunity when my work ran their first pub night for young lawyers last month. I can't remember why I missed it but after my visit tonight, I am going to make sure I go to the next pub night in November.

I was greeted at South of Temperance by the head of security, Chicago and then escorted to a table (all arranged by Lisa). As I waited for Lisa, Tom, the owner, came over to say hi. He is the nicest owner I have ever come across. He treated us like we were queens and all his staff made sure we were well taken case of. Here's what we ordered:

 Chorizo Naan Bread
Fresh mozzarella, bermuda onions, fresh basil

 Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad
Organic greens, hearts of palm, green beans, marinated onions, mini potatoes, black pepper vinaigrette

 Fish Tacos
Grilled pineapple and jicama slaw, avocado crema, coriander

Sweet Potato Fries

My favorite was the fish tacos but there is so much more on the menu I would like to try. You have to see for yourself the selection they have. I am also very interested in their brunch. Looks like I found where I will be celebrating my birthday in December.

One other thing...lots of eye candy in suits. Well, most of them seem like older men but as we were leaving, I noticed a few younger suits. It's too bad that I didn't make it here in the summer time because S of Temp has an awesome patio.

Thanks again Lisa for getting the hookup. I had a great evening just chatting it up and eating good food!

@Maureen - it's at Yonge and Adelaide. Don't worry, I think I am going to celebrate my birthday there and we will try their brunch menu.
