The Grilled Cheese month is back at L’Gros Luxe Restaurant until November 30th! It’s not the first edition and it won’t be the last one, the chefs have worked very hard to come up with 28 new recipes to delight your taste buds. We had the pleasure to taste few grilled cheese during the media launch party last week at L’Gros Luxe Sud-Ouest located on Notre-Dame West.
For 4 weeks, you are invited to visit one of the seven L’Gros Luxe restaurants and try the grilled cheese of the week. Each grilled cheese presented on the menu will be available for one week only so don’t miss your chance to grab the one that you melt for!
During the media launch party, we talked with Alex Bastide, owner of all L’Gros Luxe restaurants, who is very concerned to offer custom-made meals that meet the need of its clients. All L’Gros Luxe restaurants have a vegetarian friendly menu and a fun list of cocktails served in a festive ambiance with a refined touch specific to each neighbourhood’s personality.
If you don’t eat cheese, visit L’Gros Luxe 100% Végé which will offer vegan options for the four grilled cheese featured throughout the month of November.
Each grilled cheese will be served with fries or salad. Also, thanks to a partnership with Sleeman, you will be able to order a combo with a beer for 14$. The L’Gros Luxe 100% Végé will propose the following grilled cheese recipes until the end of the month:
- Week 1: Grilled cheese with fried Havarti cheese, tomato and basil (10$).
- Week 2: Grilled cheese with Emmental, walnuts, green apples with curry (10$).
- Week 3: Grilled cheese with Jackfruit “pulled pork” and coleslaw (12$).
- Week 4: Grilled cheese with oyster mushrooms sautéed in butter, Parmesan, mustard of Meaux (10$).
Wondering if Jackfruit “pulled pork” tastes good? First of all, don’t be fooled by the name! This is not meat but an excellent imitation of the taste and you will be very amazed once you will try it. This ingredient has been used for years all around the world by vegan chefs and recently became extremely trendy. Pulled jackfruit is made from the younger fruit named green jackfruit. Compared to other processed meat substitutes such as seitan or soy-based tofu, jackfruit is all-natural and does not required to be processed to be used in the kitchen. In other words, the grilled cheese with Jackfruit “pulled pork” is a must-try!
Moreover, November will be a very busy month in all L’Gros Luxe restaurants! In fact, in addition to the grilled cheese month, new vegan meals will be added on the menu. As a vegetarian, Alex Bastide really wants to achieve the goal of making L’Gros Luxe a place where everyone could enjoy food regardless of the type of diet you follow. Looking forward to taste all those new vegan meals!
