I just finished reading a review of restaurant of a micro brewery pub that turned into a small chain.
I ate at the Ottawa branch of this particular restaurant and it was pretty lack lustre, which imho left me a bit surprised that they opened yet another mediocre restaurant.
Reading the review, I came across " the venison Rueben is a welcome spin…" My face immediately cringed and my stomach tensed at the thought of the flavour profile.
Venison seems so wrong to be used like this-
When I think Rueben, I think sauerkraut totally overpowering any of the gamey appeal of the venison. The lean nature venison makes me think the meat would be horribly dry. I can’t even fathom how corned beef brine and spicing would work with a game meat?
The worst part is the review leaves you hanging- did they try the venison Rueben? There is not comment on it being good, etc which leads me to think not?
