Electric Mud BBQ

Eletric Mud BBQ (5 Brock Avenue, Toronto)

From the same owners as Grand Electric and located literally around the corner, we decided to stop by for a couple snacks before our dinner at Grand Electric (Yes still a 2 hour wait). The food is Southern inspired BBQ, with classic/country rock playing and the smoke from the BBQ going. As I still had Grand Electric's fish tacos and tuna ceviche very  much on my mind, we chose a couple dishes to try. I assure you I will be back soon to try the whole menu as the food is seriously addictive.

Beergurita (Agua Loca + Tequila + Lime Juice + Agave) and Porch Crawler (Thai Basil Gin + Watermelon Lemonade + Agave)
Both drinks were fantastic. The beergurita was like a classic margarita with a hint of beer flavor. My favourite was the Porch Crawler, incredibly refreshing and loving that Thai basil gin. We also had the Clydesdale (bourbon + grapefruit + lime + agave), which also was another hit as I am a sucker for bourbon cocktails.

Southern Fried Chicken
Seriously crispy + juicy fried chicken. Served with a honey sauce and a flavourful Tabasco Reserve.  The chicken was well seasoned, tender and crispy = some of the best I have had. Also a very good portion at four pieces, a great dish to share.

These were awesome. Fatty, juicy and tender as ribs should be and topped with a umami like sauce + peanuts + scallions created a dynamite flavor profile.
