So I went back to Clafouti to try a different tart this time, and I had the Pear Almond Tart ($3.15). It didn’t have a strong pear taste, but I did like the texture. The taste is light although the tart itself is dense. I prefer their Lychee Caramel Tart :)
After my volunteer information session with Canadian Red Cross, I grabbed dinner with my friend, Colleen, at DT Bistro. Colleen ordered the prix fixe ($25) while I ordered a main and a dessert. The waiter started us off with Toast and olive oil. The Shrimp Bruschetta appetizer was pretty tasty and they weren’t stingy with the shrimp, haha. The topping consisted of shrimp, onions, tomato pesto, and micro-arugula (I think I got the ingredients right, lol). My main was a Chicken Artichoke Fusili with Creamy White Wine Sauce ($15). I asked for a sauce replacement because I’m not too crazy about Tomato sauce; I absolutely love creamy white sauce though! I liked how the saltiness of the artichoke was compensated with the sweetness of the oven-roasted tomatoes. The basil pesto added some nice herb flavour as well. I kept on alternating each ingredient; it was fun. Colleen’s main was a Mushroom Pappardelle in a white wine sauce.
The most exciting part of the evening was the desserts! We had the classic Creme Brulee and a Passion Fruit Parfait ($7.50) in a white chocolate shell. The Passion Fruit Parfait was quite the little thing and was the reason why I specifically chose it. It was made with passion fruit mousse and a bit of cake soaked in raspberry sauce. The sourness of the passion fruit was so intense but tangy and unique. The seeds were crunchy which gave the dessert a great texture and added to its presentation. The strawberry and blueberry reduction sauce was very flavourful and the whole dessert was just simply amazing.
