I was originally planning on living on the cheap during my two weeks in Regina. I even brought 10 packs of instant noodles, but deep down, the foodie inside (along with a couple of new friends I met over in Regina) coaxed me out of my stingy ways and got me to go out on a food sampling binge.
We had a relatively large group so we got seated upstairs.
My friend had the calamari, and being so far away from the ocean, I was pretty skeptical about seafood. Well, frozen seafood goes along way, and it turns out that it still tasted pretty good. I was quite impressed with the tast as well.
The yam fries turned out not so good. They were actually a bit raw in the middle, and my friend broke the cardnal rule and actually sent them back.
I ordered a smoked salmon platter that came with an assortment of veggies, onions, some really good cream cheese and capers.....awesome combination. I was quite happy with what I ordered. I'd eaten a bowl of instant noodles before heading out, so all I was planning to do was have a drink. But since everyone else was eating and sharing, I caved and ordered something safe. Turns out, it was pretty good.
Another item I got to sample was this killer brownie with a scoop of ice cream. It looks simple, sounds simple, but tasted dangerous. I don't know if I was just slightly intoxicated, or this dessert really was that good, but I remember blurting out something like it was as good as sex. In retrospect, I'm not entirely sure how accurate that statement is.
Bitten was a cool hang out, the atmosphere was quiet....someplace you'd bring a date. The service was good and the prices were.....well, date prices. Not somewhere I'd go on my own, or with a couple of pals to sutff our faces. Yeah, I'd go again, under the righ circumstances.
