Note: This is not a full restaurant review because I attended Pearl Diver for Yelp Elite.

Pearl Diver is a small seafood restaurant near Adelaide and Jarvis. During the event, I got to sample the oysters and they were great snacks. I don't feel I ate enough food to be able to comment on their menu though. However, I did get to try the Oyster Stout. If you are a beer lover and you love trying new beers with unique tastes, you should give Oyster Stout a go. If you are like me and you don't like dark and heavy beers, avoid it. I personally couldn't finish my drink because the taste was absolutely strange and gross for my taste buds. I have read that other people enjoyed this drink so it really depends on your beer preferences.

As a restaurant, it has a nice and intimate setting for a small group of friends or a place to take your date. It is perfect if you love seafood.

My Order: Jerusalem Kebab Supreme, $29.95

My boyfriend raved about Jerusalem for quite some time. He kept telling me that we needed to go at least once, so we finally went to the Eglinton West location. Jerusalem is a family oriented restaurant that specializes in Middle Eastern food. The last time I went to a Middle Eastern restaurant was a year ago to Paramount by Yonge and Dundas and the food was incredibly dry. I was not impressed and I avoided going to Middle Eastern restaurants up until now.

We ordered the Jerusalem Kebab Supreme, which was a large portion for two people. It came with yellow rice, salad, and lamb. Unlike the experience I had at Paramount, the lamb was delicious and tender. I enjoyed the meal and we were both full by the end of it. The meal was definitely a good deal for two people. I definitely recommend Jerusalem if you love Middle Eastern food and would like to take your family out for dinner.
