NEW LIBRARY PUB FOOD!
Ok so for those of you fortunate to live in Wolfville, you obviously love The Library Pub. For those of you who don't, I did a previous BLOG about the great restaurant. They have just added some additions to their menu so I thought I would let you know what some of them are - which will probably urge some of you to go check them out!
My favourite thing they just added is an appetizer of shrimp done three ways, your choice: Moroccan spiced, Thai seasoning or lime&sea salt. I have had the Moroccan and lime&sea salt and they are both fantastic, and tomorrow I am off to try the Thai shrimps. You get about 6 shrimp as an appetizer, perfect for sharing with friends or a great accompaniment to their salads (my personal favourite is the crunchy cabbage and feta salad)
Spices are a large part of Moroccan cooking and I absolutely love the flavouring. Here is a list of commonly used spices so you know what to expect flavour-wise when ordering this dish: cumin, turmeric, ginger, pepper, paprika, anise seed, coriander seeds, parsley, saffron, mint and cinnamon. A wonderful selection!
Some of the other hot new items include, pork souvlaki skewers with a harissa Greek yogurt, lamb crisps, Sheppard's pie and a vegetable pasta! They look good!
Note: Harissa is a North African hot chilli sauce commonly eaten in Morocco whose main ingredients are Piri piri chili peppers, tomatoes and paprika.
