AAA Inspector Notes
The saffron-yellow exterior and the handful of statuettes that line the sparse shelves of this worn and modest interior are the only physical links to the deity. But this place is about contentment and the menu provides that in abundance. The mostly vegetarian menu—they do use some chicken—hosts simple but creative and creatively named dishes. The "Eff El Cuke," the "Brie LT" and the "Sticky Mouth" sandwich made of peanut butter, honey, cashews and raisins served on flax bread are good examples. The offerings include a very nice variety of gourmet-style pizzas, as well as the much-ordered deep-fried breaded pickles. Perhaps the best connection to the restaurant's name and his pot-belly stomach is the unbelievable variety of beers available to try (more than 100, I'm told). A younger, post-university crowd intent on sampling some of these beers gathers as the evening wears on, particularly during patio season.
