After wine class on Tuesday, R and I was on the hunt for food. We happened to be in the area and decided to give Origin a try. The place was fairly busy for Tuesday late night. The menu looked really interesting and it seems like I won’t be disappointed.
R decided to have the burger with Spanish fries. The burger was fairly tasty. The burger bun was good, the bread was soft and went well with the meat. The meat was a bit over cooked, and too dry. I think it would have been better if the cheese was in the middle of the burger, so that when you bite into it it’s juicy and melts in your month. Overall, this is just your average burger.
Spanish fries. We weren’t sure why this is called the Spanish fries. It was essentially a poutine. It had sausages, cheese, sour cream, tomato…etc. It had a bit of a spicy kick to it. It was yummy, but nothing that wow-ed us. I think we could’ve got something similar from Smoke’s.
I decided on the sashimi tuna salad. It was a bit spicy, sour and sweet with avocado, zucchini, seaweed, pepper, and rice cracker bits. There was so much sauce in the salad, it overpowered EVERYTHING on the plate. I could not taste anything but the sauce. It was to a point where you can’t even tell you were eating tuna sashimi. It was VERY disappointing.
