Ambience: Earthy, trendy, avant-gardiste.
Must-have: Banana and chocolate waﬄe with chantilly whipped cream and hazelnut. Fish n chips. Pouding chômeur.
Why: We all have an ‘’enfant terrible’’ within us and food should equally be allowed to rebel.
Tip: Try to experience Les Enfants at different times of the day, such as brunch, dinner, and weekend nights.
Les Enfants Terribles, ‘’terrible children’’ in English, tends to make a statement with its name alone: It’s a testament to the rebellious child within each and every one of us, one that can be satisfied by re-visiting the norms revolving around traditional foods. The menu revisits classic and simple dishes re-invented to rebel, with an added splash of festive and delicious accents. The atmosphere at Les Enfants is one that is warm and endearing, yet the constant liveliness lends more to that of a turbulent household. Whether it’s for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner and even late-nights, this cozy destination is always action-packed, reaching audiences of all ages ever since it first opened its doors in ‘08. If looking for great ambiance, Les Enfants is a must-try, set in the life of the street action on Bernard St, in the hip area of Outremont. If your sweet tooth persists, you will find the most charming ice cream shop called Bilboquet just steps away. However, finish up with the pouding chômeur and you will rarely feel the need. Instead of advising you on what to taste (you will easily spot the good ones), we’ll point out some of the ‘’rebelious’’ dishes they offer:
Fried Chicken Waffle: Waﬄe, fried chicken, horseradish maple syrup, apple
Breakfast poutine: 1 poached egg, roasted potatoes, pork shoulder, cheese, bacon, onion, Foyot sauce
Pâté chinois or shepherd’s pie: Braised beef cheek, truﬄe oil, creamed corn, potatoe purée
Choco-milk popsicle: Mint, wild cherry
