Masa flash-fried oysters served atop pickled tapioca


Over on the swine side of things, the pork cheeks “poutine” was a suitable penultimate course. Tender and braised for several hours, the pork cheek was flavorful without being heavy even on its nest of shoestring fries (the spuds are available as a side for lunch). The fresh cheddar cheese curds were a sweet bonus.

A visit to Cured wouldn’t be complete without at least a peek at the dessert menu. Yes, the chocolate offering with homemade donut bread pudding, dulce de leche ice cream and a cinnamon-laced chocolate soup was heartwarming, but the cardamom and carrot “Winter” cheesecake, with quince caramel and crimson wine-poached lady apples guarantees you’ll leave Cured completely restored.
