Yesterday I popped into the Ainslie IGA after my evening yoga class. It's been a long time since I was last there, and it seems like it has expanded. Either that or my memory sucks. Anyway, it's an interesting IGA to browse around.
They have a clientele that is obviously a lot more gourmet and green conscious than my Watson local. You can tell this, because they stock a lot more organic products, including meat, and lots of vegetarian pseudo-meat things. They also have a large range of Poachers' Pantry smoked meats, good Italian bread, and fresh fish, and a rather good deli section. I wasn't produce shopping, but as I walked past it all looked nice and fresh.
They do BBQ chickens at the deli - but not just ordinary ones. There's free range. I really wanted to buy one of those, but they'd sold out, so I just got the regular kind. As BBQ chooks go it's a whisker on the superior side of the standard. The stuffing is the usual greasy stodge, but it does seem to actually taste of a few herbs, and the chook itself wasn't overdone. Nice coleslaw, too.
