27. Germany: The Musket

The Musket
40 Advance Road
(south of Bloor, between Kipling and Islington)
416 231 6488

This is an unlikely establishment in the middle of an industrial estate next to Dimpflmeier bakery, but don't let that deter you. The service was friendly and attentive on a Friday night, although the servers were rushed off their feet as the place got busier.
We chose Rainbow trout with potatoes and fresh vegetables $13.95; Jaeger Schnitzel with mushroom sauce, potatoes and vegetables $14.95; Sirloin steak sandwich (without the bun and substituting veggies for the home fries), $9.50. Hacker-Pschorr $5.22 a pint. Decaf coffee $1.55. Apple strudel with ice cream $5.75. Full marks for coping with an off-menu item.

Decor - stained glass, flags, artwork and muskets collected by owner Helmut Enser to give an authentic German flavour. Live music got young and old out on the dance floor. Overall a pleasant evening at very reasonable cost.
