Acadia (Part II)

The Acadia (Part I) post yesterday detailed my dinner at Acadia around a month ago. I ordered off their menu and everything was fantastic. It was after that dinner that I declared Acadia as my favourite restaurant in Toronto ^_*

Little did I know, I was in for even more great food. This post, Acadia (Part II), summarizes in pictures the tasting menu I had when I went back to Acadia with my best friend, Ray, a week ago. Below are all the dishes we had that night and thanks to Chef Matt Blondin, he gave us a few extra dishes too =) We were both blown away with everything that came out of the kitchen! If these pictures don't entice you enough to go to Acadia, then there's something terribly wrong with you.

Okay enough of me rambling. It's Friday and it's time for some food p0rn =D Enjoy!
