42 percent. That's what the rating for Miss Peaches read a couple months ago. I'm going to be frank. Urbanspoon, whilst never deciding what my end opinion is, pretty much dictates where I go out to eat. Sure, if no one's heard of the place and I happen to come across it, even better. I know it's pretentious sounding but I hardly ever venture out to an unknown place knowing it there's a 'greater likelihood' of it being crap. I hardly am spontaneous. There's actually heaps of 'research' (other blogs heh heh) that goes into my places so needless to say I went into Miss Peaches with a lot of trepidation.
|Tatter Totts 8|
See tatter totts remind me of something I had as a four year old. They're really nothing special so why on earth did we all (me included) keep coming back to them. Was it the fact that they were generously seasoned, fluffy and light? Was it the slightly spicy, sweet maple ketchup? Mysteries of the world...
|Fried Chicken 4 per piece|
Chicken. Boy I love fried chicken like a dog loves his bone. Despite what consisted mostly of white meat, the chicken was pretty well cooked. It probably wasn't the juiciest one to date but the batter was so delectably spiced that it just kept everyone coming back for more.
|Short Rib Sliders 20 for 4|
Short ribs, whilst they could have been more tender, were nice and sticky and cut right through with some really good colesaw. Hut damn they were terrible. I'm sorry I can't possibly make this sound better than it actually is. They were just really dry, crumbly instead of crunchy and flavourless. Pretty much by the end of it there was a pile of corn bread sitting on top untouched with all the filling having disappeared.
Food was here and there but the place certainly has the right vibes going on. Prices were quite affordable, cocktails were pretty funky and the place has some really up beat service going on despite the busy night. Be wary of what you pick and choose but expect to come out generally in good spirits (the booze ought to do it for yah).
