I have to believe that the sun came out in full force last Thursday just for the partygoers at Terrasses Bonsecours. It was the hottest day we have had yet, it was the sunniest day that we have had yet and it was was the perfect way to kick off terrace season.
Drinks were flowing, appetizers were being served and the sun was shining down HARD. Upon arrival I asked if I could be seated somewhere more in the shade and the look the hostesses gave me was hilarious. I am a pale ghost by nature and I believe in protecting my skin from the sun at all costs; I’m that pale girl who wears sunscreen daily, invests in hats and tries to stay out of the sun during peak hours. Guilty.
To say that I like cheese would be like saying that Carrie Bradshaw likes shoes. It’s an understatement and doesn’t quite explain the relationship.
Thankfully, MLT Down is the type of restaurant that understands the love of cheese. The restaurant is made up of various heavenly versions of the basic grilled cheese. When I visited last week, I sat with one of the owners, Aly Moloo (all locations are co-owned by himself and his brother Rahim) and he told me about their experience in the food industry and how MLT Down had originally started in Kingston Ontario. It was apparent that the pair are not only passionate about the food industry, but that they are responsible for all the unique dishes offered and that customer satisfaction is extremely important to them. After going over the menu and not knowing which of the dishes to try, Aly suggested that I get a real taste for what they offer and ordered me three of the most popular items on the menu.
