Communion – MTL à TABLE visit

Communion is another great restaurant in Old Montreal that we have visited during MTL a Table. The ingredients are seasonal and fresh, the taste in many cases is flavorful but still light.

Entree

My favorite is the beet salad. It’s simple and refreshing. The candied pecans added crunchiness to the whole plate and the sweet taste complements the beets quite well.

Main Course

The winner for me is definitely the scallop! The scallops are seared to perfection. The hint of coffee in the sauce really is delicious. And the wild mushrooms are just amazing!

The second would be the braised beef macreuse. The meat melts in the mouth and the portion is quite big as well.

Dessert

Compared to the rest of the meals, the dessert didn’t stand out. The chocolate mousse had a bit too much cream on top. And the crustade aux pommes wasn’t really special.

Overall, I still like Communion for its fresh and flavorful French food even though the dessert selection during the event wasn’t quite satisfying. I’d go back just for the scallop. 🙂
