I had been wanting to try this place for a long time. I had briefly met the chef Marie Fleur St-Pierre at an event organized by the Spanish consulate and had loved what she had prepared. As me and some friends were looking for a place for brunch we decided to give it a try. We were pretty fortunate to get the three last seats at the bar as the place was full. The decor is very modern and even if they don’t have a terrasse the fact that the large windows open up gives you a feel of the outside with the assistance of a little AC.
If you read some of my past blogs you know I like to try different things and especially for brunch. I do like eggs and bacon but that something I can do at home … impress me!!! and that’s just what these guys did. I’m usually pretty quick to decide but their menu gave me a little more trouble as everything looked good. Since we were three we decided to all take something different and try all the dish. When we all had made our selection we all decided to pick a fourth dish to share the Chilli de pollo y cerdo.
I had picked the tostada con cassoulet y huevo, one of my friends the 2 huevos, croqueta de patatas y Serrano and the other the Pastel de Bacalao salado con salsa holandesa. Everything was excellent my plate was more than satisfying and so was the chorizo that was served with it. The pastel de Bacalao were also very gooo and what to say about that Serrano.It all tasted so good that even if I was kind of full I still had my share of the chilli. To top it off I even let one of my friends convince me to finish up the meal with some churros with dulce de lèche.
I don’t regret any of the few pounds I gain during this meal and neither did my friends. I really need to go for diner and experience their menu as I’m sure it will be to die for.
