The Missus had been on a tear since we returned from Belgium. It was beer and sausages at least once a week. It took me a while to get the Missus to visit Tiger! Tiger! with me, but once She did; well there was no stopping Her. So now, we have this huge collection of photos....
Yes, there's the beer, in fact, I don't think I've ever had a bad pint here. Come early and the folks manning the counter will actually spend time with you, trying to find the best fit. Speaking of fit, for us, Tiger Tiger presents us with a pseudo Goldilocks principle. Yes, Blind Lady Ale House has, in my opinion, a better curated selection of beer...Tiger Tiger is fairly short on sours, which the Missus loves, but TT's food is definitely better. Waypoint Public's food, at least to the Missus has the edge and the selection of beers can be really great, but man, it's pricey...$12 for a pint. It seems that TT is just right for us to enjoy weekly! Ah yes, the Rule of three.
So anyway, here's a C(learing) O(ut the) M(emory) C(ard) collection.
Part 1 - Encased meats:
There seems to be a different sausage featured weekly. While I don't really follows fads, it looks like sausages are in right now.....lucky us.
My favorite - The Smoked Kielbasa...oh man....
The Missus' favorite - The Bratwurst. She likes a more coarse cut, or even a gritty style filling.
Honorable mention...I don't think Tiger Tiger serves dishonorable weiners.
The Spicy Hungarian.
Pork and Jalapeno.
Part 2 - There's a rotation of meat paste, ummm, Pate as well.
Our unanimous favorite; the Chicken Liver Pate.
Smooth and rich, this did well with the sweetish chutney.
The country style pate with pistachios is tied for next.
With the country style pate flavored with smoked paprika.
This country style pate was good, but really didn't do well with the sweet flavor of the chutney.
Part 3 - Mom always told me to eat my veggies. So Mom would be pleased to see me eating the wood fired vegetable offerings.
My favorite would be the Padrons...well because we like them so much we grow them.
The Missus enjoyed this eggplant dish more than I did.
We both enjoyed the roasted brocolini.....
The Missus hates spaghetti squash and it's really not among items I seek out, but this version was pretty good.
So there you go; our meals at Tiger Tiger in 3 parts.....
You know, it took us three (yikes, there it is again!) visits before I got the Missus to even try something from the regular menu; the Puerco.
Which She really liked, but She was right back to Her trilogy of sausage-pate-veg on the very next visit. I gotta say......I really can't complain.
