Tacos and butter rock my foodie world in Prince Edward County.

It’s always exciting to see what’s new to eat in Prince Edward County, Ontario.   Affectionately referred to by locals as “The County” the foodie scene there is continuously improving to keep pace with the wines.  My favourite this time was La Condesa in Wellington.  The Perch Tacos on hand pressed nixtamal tortillas are the best I’ve ever had.  The cocktails are 1st rate too.

This winter David ate at the Bloomfield Public House and raved about the shellfish chowder so I was keen to go there and we had another good meal.  The highlight was the butter; browned and fermented we couldn’t get enough of it with the delicious bread.  That same bread is used in the really excellent shrimp toast.  Although I didn’t love my pasta I’ll definitely go back, I think they’ve got a good thing going. 3 Yums Up!

We had brunch at The Vic Café.  The loaded tots and cauliflower crunch bites are both good but the cappuccino is surely the best coffee in the area. 2 Yums Up!

We didn’t visit a single winery this time but did stop by Gillingham Brewery  in Hillier and loved the JM Porter, a big chocolate bomb of deliciousness.  3 Yums Up!
