My experience at Pied de Cochon

  • 0

It was Friday, around 9pm, late January, I was really starving. I had throwaway money so I thought that I'd go there and if there was no places available, I'd go home.

It was packed, VERY noisy. I asked the hostess if I could get a place at the counter because I didn't care for a table and better chances to get seated anyway in the evening. She said that she had some at the second bar.

YES!

I followed her and got a nice seat near the back of the restaurant. The barmaid asked if I wanted a drink and because it was so damn noisy, I thought she'd asked what I wanted to eat, duh, I felt like a moron! :)

Anyway, the Romain Duris-look-alike asked what I wanted and I ordered the cromesquis (two foie gras cubes in some kind of batter), a foie gras poutine and a soft drink, nothing too fancy.

The poutine, to be perfectly honest, while good, was not as mind-blowing as it was hyped to be! I'd rate it only one notch higher than say, the regular poutine at La Banquise. Sacrilegious, right?

It was damn too rich with its two pieces of foie gras and its sauce! I should've asked for more cheese. The cromesquis cubes were okay too.

Next time, I'm going to get the fish, nothing with fois gras or too fatty. Heck, I'll even go all-veggie as I saw that they offer them (vegetables and PDC mashed potatoes).

Total for all three items was 34$ (not including tip).

So bro, that was my cool story.

NOW I KNOW!
