Foxley's on Ossington
Foxley's - located on Ossington, a few blocks north of Queen Street, is Asian Fusion at it's finest. My girl, Janice, and I went there a couple weeks ago - it's taken me this long to write about it because it was such a special evening and a very unique dining experience. We had no wait - we arrived a bit after 8 PM, I believe, and we sat at the bar. We ordered a couple glasses of red wine that was very smooth and easy to drink. As this is a tapas type resto, we ordered a few treats - the shrimp with spicy sauce, the ribs in a shallot glaze and the blue crab avocado salad. The shrimp was amazing - each one, very fresh, crispy and the sauce was spicy without being too over the top. I believe the word jalapeno was in the sauce description and if you know anything about Mexican food, a jalapeno can be "burn your mouth" spicy! The crab salad came on top of a halved avocado. I took a spoon and separated the avocado from the skin and we just dove on in for what was a delicious and fully loaded crab salad. It was just awesome. The textures of the crab and the avocado were just amazing. Lastly, the ribs - omg...those ribs are out of this world. We actually ordered 2 full orders of the ribs, knowing how good they were - Janice had been here before and absolutely drools over these ribs and now I know why. If ever I want a unique dining experience, or to treat myself to a nice meal, Foxley's Bistro would be an excellent choice. Between the 2 of us, with tip and tax, we spent $36 each. Not bad if you ask me! As it is Asian Fusion, I don't know about you, but I have to be in the mood to be enticed by different flavors and textures - so when the mood hits you, go for it, because you can't go wrong here.
