Why? Well, two words: CHEESE SOUP. We will grab the Canadian Cheddar and Bacon Soup every chance we get, but then again, we do love cheese. Although we’ve eaten our way around the festival trying the oh-so-exciting Fry Flight, and lots of cheese and carbs from Germany, Canada is a booth that doesn’t let us down annually. So let’s see how the booth is this year!
The menu here includes some Canadian-inspired dishes, as well as a Canadian beer and wine. Everything on the menu this year is returning.
Okay, we can’t wait, it’s time to dig in.
There are just two menu items here, and both of them are returning.
First up is that Canadian Cheddar and Bacon Soup served with a pretzel roll for $5.75. We don’t have to tell you how delicious this is, and it’s one of the food items you can get to participate in Emile’s Fromage Montage! Look, there’s a reason this cheese soup is so popular, it’s creamy but also very textured for a soup.
The bacon adds a nice meatiness to the cheddar flavor and the pretzel roll is a perfect complement. Once again, the cheddar soup is a winner!
We’re also trying the “Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with truffle-butter sauce. This is a returning dish and is still one of the pricier ones of the festival at $9.25. This is a great option if you don’t have time to take in a long sit-down meal at Le Cellier Steakhouse, but want to taste something from the restaurant quickly. It’s both rich and hearty. The only downside is that you can’t choose what temperature you would like your steak cooked, so ours was a little more well done than we prefer, but it wasn’t tough at all!
And don’t be scared by the mushroom in the name, it didn’t taste mushroom-y, it just added to the richness of the sauce. For the price you pay, we definitely think this is a good deal because the steak is full of flavor! This is also a gluten-friendly item, so keep that in mind!
Both drinks at the Canada booth this year are returning. The Collective Arts Audio/Visual Lager is available as a 6 oz. pour for $5 or a 12 oz. pour for $9. This is a light refreshing beer, which is perfect for a hot summer day.
Also returning this year is the Château des Charmes Cabernet-Merlot Estate. This wine is available for $7.
Overall, the Canada booth has done it again with its delicious food! The one bad thing about this booth is that its two food items are so RICH. We know soup may not be what you want to eat when the humidity is making it feel like the temperature is in the triple digits, but it’s really good and definitely worth it. Maybe just hit this booth last so you don’t fall into a food coma.
