one shot: Profiteroles at Cafe Rabelais

    cr-profiteroles-001
    Even if you don’t like anything at Cafe Rabelais (I didn’t), this mini-mountain of profiteroles loaded with ice cream is still as resistible as a pool in the summer, and worth every second you spend with it too.

    To top, it’s HUGE. THREE orange-size puffs, for only $6.50! We thought it was going to be just one cream puff, you know, like how desserts are usually portioned… but no, the pastry chef has a heart of gold. Next time I’m at Rive Village, I’ll swing by for a profiterole recharge. ;-)

    Sidney and the cream puffs. See how big this dessert is?

    Now… a few more shots of Rabelais’ foods, but the menu varies daily and is only written on the blackboard so we might never see these dishes again:

    Pate de campagne - meaty and well seasoned.

    "Roasted leg of lamb with raspberry demi" - Well, I don't like the smell of lamb and this one hasn't changed that.

    Lemon sole meuniere - too much lemongrass, lemon and salt, but so much more edible than the lamb.

    Creme brulee. Too sweet, of course.

    Chocolate pie - basically the chocolate mousse on a nut crust.

    “Fondant au Chocolat sur Croute de Noix” – basically the chocolate mousse on a nut crust.

    By the way, the service is just plain negligence. But if you come only for the profiteroles, you won’t see the waitress enough to notice the service anyway. ;-)

      Ahh the bavette steak!!! The worst thing about Cafe Rouge :<

    • hahaha yeah that Cafe Rouge… >_< I didn’t try the bavette steak here (my friends did), but no matter how it is, at least Rabelais has the profiteroles to make up for it. Cafe Rouge DOESN’T EVEN HAVE GOOD DESSERTS!!!!!
