After missing out on the cafe the first 2 weekday afternoons we visited because of the long waiting list on both occasions, we finally managed to get in on our 3rd visit on a Wednesday. Even then, reservations were full and we had to wait for 15 minutes after we arrived before it was our turn to be seated.
For starters, we went for the Poutine, which is described as fries topped with homemade brown gravy. The homemade part got me a little skeptical because the brown sauce tastes somewhat like the instant kind we can get from stores. The fries were ok in texture, but the mildly rancid oil it was fried in was quite obvious.
Of all the mains, the Eggs Tomato Relish fared best. It is very similar, if not is, the Mediterranean Shakshuka. The combination was very appetising and the sauce a little addictive with the bread. You can choose your preferred style of eggs (ours was runny).
The Churros was nicely fried and crispy on the outside. A pity it was dough-ey inside, which is a sign of undercooking. Otherwise, it could have been among the top on my best churros list.
