Elle M'a Dit

Way back when, a bunch of foodies including myself met up for dinner at Elle M’a Dit. Although, the restaurant has officially closed its doors last month, it was quite a delightful dinner that I never got around to blogging. Yet, here I am editing photos and writing up a post about a restaurant that I wish I visited more often. Nonetheless, I still wish to share with you guys my first time indulging in  a modern Alsatian (French & German) cuisine.

I’m a huge fan of anything that’s been placed in a hot oven so essentially things that are baked. So obviously the Alsatian meat casserole& the tarte flambées were my favourites of the night! I’m a sucker of anything that’s embedded on a crusty layer of thin dough. My second favourite was the Seared scallop & braised pork belly… doesn’t that alone sound really good?! I definitely need find a new Alsatian cuisine in Toronto.
