Cilantro and Chive

Hello friends,

I haven't posted in a while I've been busy doing rotations. I find myself in Ponoka where there isn't much to do or see except maybe the "world's largest bucking cowboy." However, lots of the locals told me to go to a nice little place called the Cilantro and Chive. One of my good friends hates cilantro and says it tastes like soap so I looked it up and about 10% of people have this problem. Anyhow I decided to come check the place out.

I was impressed by the overall decor and atmosphere of the place. It was clean and they offered a seat yourself dining room and patio. The waitresses all wore bright green aprons that livened up the place. They quickly came and brought me out water with mint and cucumber which I thought was a great way to brighten up water and bring a freshness to it.

There were several things I was told by the waitress to try but I ended up picking the special they had on - the prime rib. It was an 8oz medium rare cut served with a loaded bake potato, yorkshire pudding, and roasted zucchini with au jus. The cut of meat was very juicy and delicious. There was some fat marbled around to give it a rich and tender taste. The potato was topped with sour cream, cheese, and chives and was good but ordinary. The yorkshire pudding was surprisingly delicious. I've never had it before and it was crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. The taste and texture was very similar to that of a chinese long donut (sorry it's mostly under the meat here.)

I left stuffed. There was a lot of other things I would've liked to try here. I would definitely come back! Verdict 90/100.
