Dinner with Dave

  • 11th Apr, 2005 at 11:36 PM

Just came back from dinner with dcoombs. I had fish and chips this time at Café L'Etranger, which was slightly better than an overcooked burger. I think that place only thrives due to convenience. Certainly not by the promptness of the service nor the quality of the food. Or perhaps, as thebabynancy prefers, it thrives because of the eye-candy.

In any event, the conversation was most excellent so that made up for the whole evening. It's nice to talk to Dave again, I missed him.

Say, I completely failed to meet up with you the last couple times you were in Montréal. When are you coming back more permanently?

Gee, I wonder what happened. Café L'Etranger used to be soooo good.

L'Etranger is good for some things, but the fish and chips isn't really one of those things. Some of the burgers are decent, but the only reason I bother to go is the sandwiches. You just can't find anything quite like them anywhere else. It's not just the stuff they list as "Sandwiches", but also the grilled cheeses, paninis and wraps. If only I could get them with fries instead of those salty salty pasta chip things.

Have you ever asked to have them with fires ? :-)

"Uhm yes. I'll have the roast beef sandwich flambé. Water will be fine, thanks."

Yes. Repeatedly. The answer is always an unshakeable "no".

It's all about the eye candy, and possibly the ambience some days...

There are maybe 3 competent waitstresses. And while they have Pilsner Urquell... and the food is sometimes interesting, as it lacks consistency... I rarely go there anymore, in comparison to how often I used to. Someone needs to give their owner/manager... I nominate azrhey!

I was there last night as well! From about 7-8. With fordcov!

Small world.

I only go there if I have the time to wait, or if I want one of their alcohol-coffee mixes.

It's a trade-off... service/quality of food versus eye candy. Can't have it both ways. So sad...
