Mmmm Beef Short Ribs from HPH

After Riva Soucie of Ottawa Magazine's post on Hintonburg Public House's tender beef short ribs, I couldn't get them out of my mind. I'm not sure if it was the meat that was exciting me about it or the fact it was paired with onion rings. Ok, the onion rings had a lot to do with it. It's just that that, as well as the polenta made for what I would consider a plate full of the best foods all together in one (ok the addition of rice noodles and peanut sauce would have taken me over the edge and straight to heaven and as I write this I can literally hear my husband's eyes roll – just because you love two ingredients doesn't mean they go together! – I beg to differ). Sorry, I got lost there. I must say these ribs did not disappoint. So tender and delicious. The entire plate was better than I expected.

Other highlights at the Hintonburg Public House include a nice new entry way – perfect for those poor guests who end up near the door on a cold winter day. The walls are now filled with art – so much cozier. And yay, they've dimmed the lights and turned up the music. The staff really could smile a little more, it would add that missing warm and fuzzy feeling you get that kind of confirms you're not annoying them to death.

So many other delicious treats that are just begging me to come back. I can't wait.
