Marché Bacchus

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
with butter.

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
dishes!

 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!

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
