|The One that Got Away - Bloor West - Trout and Chips|
We've lived in Bloor West for a couple of years now. I've bemoaned the lack of places to eat but it's slowly evolving and we don't feel the need to go downtown or to Roncey all the time. The One that Got Away opened last year and I've not found the time to go between finishing up work for MatLeave and well, being pregnant. Finally, strolling around with the family today we stopped in since hubbo has told me I've been saying I would for nearly 6 months. Plus we had both kids with us and lil T will eat his Chips without complaint. I packed a lunch just in case. It wasn't needed.
I'll cut to the chase now. The food was great! Admittedly it was on the pricey side and not your weekly Chippies because of that. I'd say, they are probably a mere buck or two away from being a weekly staple. Two, yeah, given the neighbourhood. Course, they could be priming themselves for the condos opening up soon and don't want to be seen to be gouging later, who knows. But for the folks Bloor West, deffo 2 bucks too pricey for it to be a regulars' spot.
