Meal: Meat Platter
In November I went to Regina to visit my best friend for her 30th birthday. I had heard about this amazing little restaurant in Vibank, about 30 mins drive from Regina, that had the most amazing mexican food. My sister had been there for her birthday and could not say enough good things about it. So I thought, now that I am stuck in Regina surrounded by snow, I may as well eat something good. I had to call ahead an preorder our meal so I of course ordered the meat platter.
We arrived and the father of the couple who owns the restaurant/cafe seated us and made us feel right at home. We ordered a bottle of wine, which was very reasonable. There was not a long wait for the food and we were able to take a look at the many pictures on the wall that showed the history of the building.
In talking to the owners after the meal we found out that the buildng used to be a convent and got a tour of all the lovely rooms that are available for rentals for larger parties.
Now, when the food came out, WOW!!! There was enough food to feed an army! It was a massive platter full of every meat you could imagine. It was all BBQ and there were short ribs, chicken, smoked brisket, pork ribs, beef ribs, cornbread, homemade potato salad, pickles, and the kitchen sink (well maybe not the last one). There were 3 of us and we were all in a food coma before we reached the half way mark in that platter. All of it was so good and cook so well! You can really taste the love that Kevin and Ceceila (the owners)put into their food.
If you are anywhere near the Grotto please make the effort to go to the Grotto, you wont regret it. Just remember to call ahead to make a reservation and preorder the best Mexican food you can find in 3 feet of snow.
