Eating Out: Part 2 of 3

Saturday: a day to eat. We rolled into Bandidas Taqueria at about 2:55 pm, just in time to make the brunch cut off. Lynley's visit somehow transformed us into vacation-mode this weekend, so we imbibed accordingly with orange margueritas.

I ate corn bread muffin tops, topped with guacamole, cheese and fried eggs, served with tomato and tomatillo sauce and a salad of purple cabbage and cilantro. They use these muffin tops for their eggs bennies too. They're so good!

Bandidas came recommended by Sonya, and lo and behold, who did we run into but Swannya.

After a couple hours' rest, we were ready for a second round of feeding at Au Petit Chavignol.

My dinner: Chanterelle Mushroom Mac n Cheese -- cave aged gruyère and an almond-thyme-brioche topping. And Roasted Beet Salad -- gorgonzola, hazelnuts, mint, and balsamic reduction.

Our guest of honour flanked by Gary and his raclette contraption.

Dessert: Torres and Espresso Crème Brûlée. The dish is really shallow so you get more crackly brûléed topping! The way it should be.
