Foods from Au Vieux Duluth

Review for the newish store in Glenwood Mall in Aylmer.

Excellent food. We've been here 4 times now, 3 dined in, once takeout. Every time, the food was identical in its deliciousness.

The chicken brochette is one of the best I've had, and I've had brochettes all over Quebec, chains and non. Juicy, marinated, flavourful, with a delicious char. The peppers and onions also cooked nice and sweet. The rice is simple, decent. The potatoes are very good, cooked perfectly with a nice texture. The green salad is nice, with a decent coating of Italian like dressing.

The tzatziki app is very good. One of the best tzatzikis I've had in a store. It comes with some soft, heated pitas, excellent black olives and red peppers.

Sun-Thu special $11.95 brochette plate. $3.99 for the tzatziki app.

Finished dinner off with a ridiculously priced crème caramel at $2. Nice and smoky, syrupy, creamy, good end to a great meal.

Tally it all up: total south of $29 bucks for two, taxes and tip extra.

It's bring your own libations, NO corkage fee (take that, Ottawa!). My second Heineken was on ice while I worked on the first.

Excellent service, and airy, bright ambience in a modern decor.

Friday evenings are very busy, hence the one takeout we had.

I stopped by the Cornwall location and I realized that I had not eaten at this Montreal fixture for over 20 years. I was in for lunch and got the chicken brochette off the lunch menu. It was delicious. Great char on the chicken, green peppers and onion. The roasted potatoes were fluffy and tasty while the overdressed salad had some tasty cabbage and onion hiding in the huge pile of iceberg lettuce. Good salad just a little too icebergy. The scoop of rice was more for tradition than eatability. My potato and bacon soup was very good with a healthy dash of the ubiquitous oregano. What would have really knocked this lunch out of the park would have been a dipping bowl of tzatziki. Next time...
