Montréal Eats: Restaurant Au Tarot

Everything is served in a very large bowl with a very generous portion of food.  Service was very friendly.  They really stuff you up here.  There is more than enough food for two people to share.  It’s a simple homecooked meal that anyone can try if you want to try an ethnic food in Montréal.  Excellent food but I think it’s too expensive.

Couscous (semolina grains)
Well-cooked and isn’t dried up.

Made with zucchini, carrots, onions, turnips, chickpeas and chicken.
It’s a nice vegetable broth, I just wished there was more spice in it because it was a bit too bland.

Couscous Royal
Poulet, agneau, merguez
It contained half of a chicken, a giant lamb shank and two long pieces of lamb sausages.  Everything was very flavourful and moist after the long-hours of slow roasting.  The broth was great with couscous.

With nut/dates filling, and citrus flavouring.  It was a complimentary dessert 🙂

Mint Tea
It’s not oversweet and there’s plenty of fresh mint in the teapot.

Washington Eats: Ethiopic Restaurant

It’s a very clean and modern designed restaurant.  Servers were very nice and helpful.  Food was very good, but overpriced.  All were very flavourful, nicely spiced and not too oily.  Their spiced bread and injera were good too.  Portions are large, so better come here and share the dishes with someone.  You’ll get filled up in no time when you scoop and eat with injera.
