On Montreal Restaurant Griffintown Chef Deck says,
You know how when you play broken telephone the phrase “I want to eat a banana” becomes something like “is your sister eating a lama?”? Well Chef Deck has a feeling that somehow the phrase “Café Griffintown is so so” turned into “Café Griffintown is the bomb yo”. After many recommendations I had great expectations for this Montreal resto, and though I was excited by their menu, the food was relatively bland (needless to say it was no Liverpool House). We started with Buffalo Mozzarella and ham cheese sticks which were just wrong. This is not a cheese you deep fry because it releases the water, and the ham they used just overpowered this fine delicacy. We also started with gravlax on toast that was decent but nothing to tell mommy about. For the mains we ate a duck, lamb, and beef Burger which was good, and pasta which supposedly had duck confit in it (I could barely find a piece though) and truffle oil. I think they also forgot to salt the water for the pasta (big no no) because it was bland, and they really went cheap on the truffle oil. So don’t let my message get convoluted, because this Montreal Restaurant is just not worth the hype!
