The Cannibal: Meaty Treats for All!
Lauren Shockey Lamb neck terrine, one of the many meaty dishes at the Cannibal
For this week's review, I paid a visit to the Cannibal, the new eatery adjacent to Resto. If you're a vegetarian teetotaler, well, this isn't your restaurant. But for those who love meat and beer (the two food groups that really count in this world), you're in for a treat. Need some visual cues about what to order? Here's a glimpse of a few of the meaty (and, OK, a veggie) treats on hand.
Lamb neck terrine (above) is underscored with Sichuan peppercorns and celery leaves. It's meaty and full of flavor. Cut a chunk and slather it on some crusty bread.
Lauren Shockey Merguez
Want more lamb? You could opt for the merguez, one of the many sausages available. As you can see, portions run small, but the menu is really designed for sharing.
Lauren Shockey Ham
Or hit up some ham, like this one from Finchville Farms in Kentucky. The ham selection is all American.
Lauren Shockey Salami
The salami, though, is sort of a small portion for $7. I say stick with the terrines and links.
