>here. food. to whet the bloggy appetite.
for today, a takeaway lunch from the very convenient IGA supermarché au complex desjardins. veal cacciatore (tomato-tinged ‘baby moo!’) atop rotini, and some ‘baos de longévité’ that were adorable from afar, but absolutely throat-parching at first bite. imagine a plump, pink bun filled with lotus paste…
with all the softness and moisture obliterated with an utter, painful death. i think i need a refund on the promise on longévité. however, i forgive because of the cute. don’t we all?
at the end of a long and exhausting day, voilà dinner, via vincent via leo, at le café du nouveau monde (here’s a a review in english). the restaurant was jam-packed while we waited for a table for over half an hour, but at precisely 8pm the place became a ghost town. all the bustling clientele left for the performance in the adjacent théâtre du nouveau monde (i saw a lot of stylish french women complete with their skirts, boots, scarves, and doe-eyes). i enjoyed the warm goat cheese with sun-roasted tomatoes and fresh basil (über-gooey and delish!), and the salmon with bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, tomatoes, and a soy + lime marinade, with liberal sprinkles of sesame seeds. fantastique asian fusion, and yumyum to the flavourful salty fishy.
maintenant, je dois dormir! autrement, je mourrai. c’est triste. c’est vraiment triste. *ronfles*
