Two great Appetizers
#6
  Re: (...)
I was in Winnipeg Manitoba last weekend, and we stopped off for a bite to eat at a restaurant called Moxie's. We were on our way to an art opening, so had limited time, and only ordered 2 apps. I wrote down the description off the menu, but not the name. If the apps were any indication of the main courses , I sure wish we would have had more time. The ambiance was great, the wait staff even better. And, they were offering $7.00 off any bottle of wine. Here were the two apps we had:

Sushi grade Ahi Tuna in a sesame dijon crust, presented on a ginger shitake salad with crispy wontons and lemon aioli. $9.99 for 6 of them The tuna was done to perfection.

Mosaic Dip

This was done in a gratin dish, so think of layers.

a base of fresh tomatoes, garlic and sweet red onions topped with a layer of creamy diced mushrooms and finished with a seasoned Quebec goat cheese, served with
naan bread.

I sure hope I get a chance to try to replicate them some time.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Those appetizers sound very tasty, Lorraine. Hope you will be successful making them yourself. Be sure to post your results.

I noticed that Moxie's is a chain with several locations in Canada. We also have one here on Cleveland's east side. (Beachwood) I wonder if it's the same restaurant?

Doesn't look like it: Beachwood vs. Canada. Even the names are different. The former: "Moxie: The Restaurant"; the latter: "Moxie's Classic Grill."
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?

oh my, they both do sound good.

The wontons - were they a good size for scoopers or strips as garnish? 'ginger shitake salad' - hmmmm, something to play with, I sure hope you do.

The mosaic dip - hurry up and play, Lorraine!
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

The salad sat on the wonton, and was topped by the tuna, then the aioli. It was a two bite appetizer, well, I did manage to stick some in whole.
