Mediterranean Stuffed Pork Chops
Yesterday I took a trip to McEwan, a grocery store created by Mark McEwan that is located at the Don Mills Shops. Most have probably heard of his restaurants North 44, Bymark and One Restaurant. Or perhaps you watched his show The Heat on the Food Network. Smart idea, promoting yourself through a show displaying all the hard work that goes into opening up a store. But before you race for a shopping cart beware that this is as high end supermarket. If you are searching for Australian Waygu or craving a meal crafted by the man himself than its the place for you. Don't come if you want some button mushrooms and milk.  I bought one Maryland crab cake, I repeat one, for $6. I did forget to read the heating instructions on the front, which might have affected the flavour, cause all I tasted was salty crab. I still think that's steep considering someone would pay that much at a restaurant with service and ambiance.
