When our neighbours suggested we join them for a unique dining experience on a random Friday evening, we knew we were game. All we had to go on were a location, a price, and a sense of adventure. And it couldn’t have been more fun or delicious if we tried.

12B bills itself as a “unique restaurant concept” – I can’t think of a more perfect way to describe it. Diane at Global Peasant and Anne at Food & Tell do a great job of describing the experience and the atmosphere. I couldn’t agree more with their assessments.

The fact that two of our party were done in by the Pink Drinks concocted by our intrepid organizer Adam, or that we erupted into regular battle cries of “BACON SEX!” (neither of which phased our host one bit) was a refreshing change from the somewhat stuffy atmosphere at most places in the city one obtains food this good.

It’s an evening that promises to leave you with tantalized tastebuds, a satisfied belly and enough inside jokes to last you a long, long while.

But enough of the shenanigans, what on earth did we eat?
