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!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
