With a friend visiting from out of town and a young Saturday night, we decided to hit The Little Door.
Complimenting its name perfectly, the entrance of The Little Door is a little blue door you need to bow a bit to go through.

The ambiance of the The Little Door is very warm. The dim lighting, the bottle lamps and creepers give a very relaxing touch. There is loud music in the background but that just add up the the lively crowd around. It feels like one big party! In the middle of the setting outside, there is a wooden bar for those waiting for a table to chill with a drink.
We settled in the corner next to the bar and began to do what we do best – order and eat!
To drink we ordered two Sangria’s – White and Red. The white Sangria was light on the taste of wine compared to the Red. The Red Sangria has a stronger kick of wine while the white tilted more in favor of the mixed juice.
We started off on our food order with the Poutine ( concoction of French Fries topped with cheese and brown sauce ). The fries were well seasoned and crisp and cheese, well, is always good; but the zest to the dish was the drizzled sauce. The combination was really good.
With sausages being one of reviewers favorites at The Little Door, Currages ( Charcoal grilled chicken or pork sausages sauteed with red wine sauce & a special blend of spices ) was next to be explored. The saucy succulent pieces of sausages came with just the right amount of spice! The sausages were well marinated and a delight.
Wondering what to order next, we asked for a The Little Door special which was Tequila Lime Chicken ( Chicken marinated with Tequila, Lemon Juice, Olive oil and Tabasco, served with red cabbage and green onion slaw ). Though the name excited us quite a bit, the dish was not something that suited out taste. We found it a bit spicy and the first batch was slightly uncooked.

With some space in our stomachs and the last call for food at The Little Door, we ordered a Beef Kabob ( cubes of beef marinated with mustard cream, worcestershire sauce, fresh herbs, served with hummus and onion salad ). THIS WAS THE STAR! We had no idea where it all vanished and it left us wanting for more! The beef was perfectly cooked and cut in bite sized pieces. The hummus and onion salad complimented the meat perfectly and was absolutely delicious. ( Can’t believe i’m drooling while writing) . This is an absolute MUST HAVE.
We ended our course with Jack Daniels’s Chocolate Mousse. A nice desert but there was just a bit of JD that just one of us got to taste at the end after digging in.

For our next trip here, we are hoping to catch the Sunday Brunch. Any suggestions?
