Dinner at Deseo

You know those meals where, despite having only a drink or two, you feel positively drunk with pleasure by the end? My dinner at Deseo was one of those meals.

I went last weekend with my friend, Mel. We opted to share several of the small bites, rather than each getting an entrée,  and it's definitely the route I'd recommend. 

If you're interested, we ordered the Lamb Albondigas, Black Truffle Gnocchi, Brussel Sprouts, Figs and Chorizo, and crème brûlée for dessert. Each plate was an incredible medley of perfectly balanced flavours, and we spent hours chatting and savouring. The cocktails are also excellent, and the old fashioned particularly is one of the best I've ever had.

I would whole-heartedly recommend you try Deseo the next time you find yourself in Winnipeg. Go with a decent bit of cash in your pocket and some time on your hands; this isn't one of those meals to be scarfed down in a hurry. So find a good dinner companion, let the conversation flow, and enjoy an absolutely wonderful meal. You'll leave with a dreamy, satisfied smile on your face.
