eating out in Toronto…

When E won a teaching award last week we celebrated at a French bistro called “La Palette”.

On the  regular menu were the usual French items like escargots, pate, roast chicken, steak frites, duck confit, and the special menu had a very interesting ‘build your own’ mixed grill of boar, bison, elk, ostrich, or venison, and

Cheval – Horse Tenderloin served rare to medium-rare with roast fingerling potatoes, market vegetables and a rosemary veal jus.

Horse?  We weren’t in China.

I asked the waiter, “How many people order horse?”

“More than you’d imagine,” he replied. “It comes from Quebec, and is exceptionally tender.”

None of us felt adventurous. We had steak-frites, and the duck. Very tasty.
