Radis

IMG_0090

Radis (restaurantradis.com) is another Vegan restaurant I discovered, it is located at 361 Rue Bernard West in Montreal. A must ! We were warmly greeted and the service was excellent. As a main course we had a Calzone stuffed with mushrooms, beyond delicious. The portions were quite generous but I could not possibly pass on dessert. If you are to look at the top Picture I absolutely had to taste the Lemon pie, and while savouring our main course the pastry chef…….. proceeds to the Cannoli filling…… , Well ! we could not possibly not taste those as well, so we decided to order one Moka & Hazelnut and one Vanilla & Pistachio !
