Lunch @ Biff's Bistro

Biff Bistro is my last O & B restaurant to try, so I decided to stop by for a weekend lunch.
Biff Bistro offers a lunch prix fixe combo, which comes with the soup of your choice. I wasn't tempted by the soup of the day (some sort of bean soup), so I opted for the mushroom soup instead. I was very happy with my choice, as the hearty soup was rich with robust, earthy flavours. A very enjoyable start to the meal.
For the main, I decided to try Basquez style chicken with preserved lemon, olives and chorizo. The dish was visually stunning, and I was immediately drawn to the bright, vibrant colours. Luckily, the taste did not disappoint either. The chicken was very tender and the broth was just bursting with flavours of the meat juice and herbs. The delicious broth was absorbed by a fluffy bed of couscous, which I gladly demolished.
I was less thrilled with our other dish- caramelized onion tartlette with warm mushrooms, anchovy and grand crème delin. For me, the mushrooms were the star the the dish, adding a meaty richness to the bed of greens. However, the pastry itself was slightly too thick and hard, particularly in the bottom. I also wished that the anchovy had been more evenly distributed throughout the tart. The large chunks of cured fish made certain bites overly salty.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable lunch, and I really loved the chicken. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be coming back anytime soon since my boyfriend hates French food. He found the meal "survivable".

  1. Haha, French food is definitely not "mainstream" and not too many people like it. I went to Biff's with my cousin and she was probably dramatized watching me eat my frog legs. I did like Biff's though :) The mushroom soup was really good too!
