We’re finally home from our little trip! It’s true that it’s nice to get away but it’s even better to come home. Fortunately for us, we ate like kings while we were away…
The brunch at Café My House was calling our names and I’m so glad we decided to give it a try.
THOSE SMOOTHIES! The green one was mine and it was mango-cilantro. It tasted a bit like a fresh roll in the best way possible. I’m growing cilantro on the balcony this year and I’ll definitely be throwing some into smoothies. Jenn’s was a typical cocoa-banana concoction which was super tasty as well, though not as interesting or refreshing as mine.
Jenn and Trevor both had the waffle BLTs with coconut bacon. I had the tempeh benedict, which was fresh baguette, kale, eggplant, smoky tempeh and a really amazing hollandaise sauce.
And my favourite restaurant ever, Aux Vivres in Montreal. I don’t know what it is about that place, but the food is just incredible and fresh, and I just love Montreal, so it all comes together to create such a lovely experience for me every time.
Jenn got the Bouddha Bol, I got the coconut bacon BLT (they were one of the first places around doing coconut bacon!), Trevor got the tempeh burger. I also got le creamsicle smoothie, which is coconut milk, orange juice, carrot juice, dates and vanilla and tastes exactly like its namesake. Also, the chana paratha appetizer is INCREDIBLE. I have to master paratha at home.
Another day, Trevor and I went back and we got more of the paratha, this time with their house veggie butter. SO GOOD.
I also got their famed Dragon Bol which has an incredible Dragon sauce, and the Coconut Cashew Pie was my birthday cake, since this meal took place on my 30th birthday.
Soooo much amazing food to be eaten. More to come!
