What I’ve Been Up to Lately Part 2

September 26, 2014 , In: Bistro, Cuisine, Old Montreal , With: No Comments

Continued from yesterday….

We scooted in a cab, missed the street, cruised by again and headed to L’Orignal for a look at their new menu from their new chef.  With an emphasis on local ingredients the menu was full of vegetables, and hearty flavours.  My fave was the corn soufflé (bottom right on the photo) and cabbage roll (it looks like a brain – middle bottom).  The new chef Omar Zabuair used products from Gaspor Porc, Societe L’Orignal, Terre des Bisons, Meadow Lake Farms, Sirop St. Leon and Lirode – all local suppliers and farms.

Unfortunately I was not feeling very well, and had to cut it short before I could taste the meat dish (above right) and dessert (above left).

Here are a few more great pictures of the food from the event (supplied to me by PR – my photos were crap).  I especially love the cozy atmosphere – it’s like a chalet in the city!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
