It was raining last Saturday while we were on our way to La Maquette.
Arriving to La Maquette, we were first seated on the first floor then we told the hostess that we would like to change our seats to 2nd floor. The views are amazing upstair. It would be nice seating in the patio outside too if only it was not raining.
Me while waiting for the food coming…
Plus taxes and gratuity
LA MAQUETTE’S SPECIALTY SOUP OF THE DAY (butternut squash soup with sourcream)
The soup is warm and delicious.
WILD BOAR APRICOT AND CHERRY TERRINE
served with blackberry coulis
I like the apricot – really delicious. Only the bread is a little hard to chew on.
GREEN LEAF, RADICCHIO AND BELGIUM ENDIVE (vegan)
parmigiano shavings and balsamic vinaigrette
VEAL TENDERLOIN AND A DUET OF GRILLED SCALLOPS
served with a light mustard cream sauce and Ontario market vegetables
This is so tasty!!! especially the scallop (so soft & sweet), I was turn off a bit because the saltiness in the veal but when I tried to eat both the veal & scallop & dip with sauce & mashed potatoes, it actually amazing delicious, so much nom nom ❤ ❤
TWO 4 OZ LOBSTER TAILS
with a white wine cream sauce, jasmine rice and Ontario farm vegetables
The lobster and the veal look kinda similar. haha. I would say it is not as good as the lobster I ate in Fred’s Not Here. One of them was burned more than the other.
SMOKED CHICKEN LINGUINE TOSSED
with rustic tomato and julienne of vegetables
CHEF’S VEGETARIAN OPTION OF THE DAY (vegan)
PROFITEROLE WITH BUTTERSCOTCH ICE CREAM
and drizzle of chocolate sauce
La Maquette have the best deserts out of three restaurants I tried this Summerlicious. And The butterscotch Ice Cream is the best, not only fulfilling my chocolate thirst, it is so fresh and make me to eat more even after the 2 previous courses . The profiterole is genius too, i love how I can feel the chocolate kicks to my nose and the crunchiness and softness of the cream puff.
FRESH FRUIT BOWL (vegan)
PAVLOVA WITH STRAWBERRY CREAM
This totally good looking guy have too much sugar for me. It seem like I come home carry 2 more pounds of fat with me. Well. Great presentation. ❤
