People ask me where I like to eat a lot. And the answer is typically: “all over!” But perhaps a better question, or at least the question I would rather answer is,” what dishes do you like to eat?”

So, in the lost artful tradition of a mixed tape, here is the first installment of what I like to call “Mixed Plates”, where I share some of my favourite dishes I have enjoyed on my recent travels. The kind of memorable plates that you want to keep on a regular rotation and share with others.

^ Steak Frites at Pied-à-Terre ~ AAA centre cut sirloin, hand cut pommes frites, creamed spinach and a baked tomato. $23.50 (wine by the glass $7.5-$13.75)

Steak frites. What’s not to adore? This classic Belgian meat-and-potatoes dish is both perfectly indulgent and simple. And with a glass of wine, it brings together one of the most pleasurable trios of sacred and delicious consumables from the Western Word into one meal.

Would Michael Pollan approve? Only if the beef was humanely and sustainably produced and eaten once in a month with a turkey-sized bowl of locally grown organic vegetables.
