For a girls' day out, my friends and I went to eat some French food at Marché Bacchus for lunch. On Mondays to Fridays, this restaurant offers the Lakefront Lunch menu. You have the choice of two courses with a complimentary house wine. Along with this $19.95 lunch special, you are seated outside at the restaurant's patio, don't worry it's in a comfortable and cool area with mists and ceiling fans everywhere and you'll see lovely view of Lake Jacqueline while dining there.
|Starting off the meal with some light and fluffy bread
|Soupe Du Jour: the chef's daily creation of the day was this chill soup of mainly
watermelon juice and a little salt. Great to drink during a hot summer day!
|Portobello Mushroom Burger- roasted peppers and onions, arugula,
herbed goat cheese, balsamic reduction, and a whole wheat bun. This
was such a great burger because I loved how this portobello mushroom
was cooked! It was tender yet still retained it's thick flesh. I also enjoyed the
frites (fries), it was not greasy, lightly salted, and had a nice crunch to it.
|Half Pound Burger- came with horseradish black pepper aioli, cheddar cheese,
pickled red onion and arugula. The beef was also very tender!
|Poulet Frites- pan roasted farm raised chicken paillard, pomme frites, and
natural jus. Again this meat was also tender. I was impressed with these simple
| Trio Sorbet- when we saw it on the menu we thought it would
be cold like gelato, but it was soft, somewhat like pudding with a clear glaze of sweetness
on top. This was definitely one of the best desserts I've had. These three flavors
blended with each other so well!
|A big Créme Brulee- with vanilla bean custard and caramelized sugar
|Part of the view of Lake Jacqueline. This made the vibe more relaxing and
there were pretty black swans to see!
