Hot & Spicy (Le Gourmet)
(The Brossard restaurant is now closed.)
Certain owners must spend a fortune on decorating their restaurant. It's certainly the case as far as Hot and Spicy (Le Gourmet) is concerned. Situated on Taschereau boulevard, this is a very nice looking restaurant. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to bring my camera. The bathroom alone would have been worth a couple of pictures (what a sink!). The service was also professional and pretty fast.
This restaurant is a bit like a buffet. We are given a menu from which we can order anything, as often as we want. The problem is that the food barely surpasses what we would normally find in a buffet. There are a few exceptions but, overall, there's nothing out of the ordinary. Many dishes either have too much sugar or too much fat. For $26 per person, I would have expected something better. If you're a lover of buffets and you feel you spend too much time walking from one dish to another, you'll probably like this restaurant. If not, you have to ask yourself if a beautiful decor is worth an extra $10 per person.
