[Algerien: Au Coin Berbère] BYOW

IMG_5098A few weeks ago, the wonderful-international-people-I-went-to-high-school-with-who-also-happened-to-be-in-Montreal-at-this-point-in-life gathered for a last Spring supper. This time, we celebrated S’ graduation which sadly also meant bidding her farewell as she heads back West.

A bunch of international kids being a bunch of international kids, we debated between Indian and Italian for over a week until S made the executive decision to book the 10 of us Au Coin Berbère, an Algerian BYOW.

I’ve always been quite fond of BYOW venues. What could possibly be better than the joy of sharing a few bottles over great food? Because everyone brings a little bit more than needed, just in case, and because wasting wine is out of the question for the conscious citizens that we are, every vino veritas is always consumed until the last drop… with all the (mis)adventures ensuing ;).

Au Coin Berbère is an intimate family-owned restaurant at the corner of Saint-Dominique and Duluth. The concept is straightforward: couscous and vegetables to share, with meat and merguez in extras. All very filling and well spiced (beware the harissa sauce. Not for the light hearted), we happily tucked into each other’s plates until our tummies stretched to their maximum.

Look below and see if you can dare to resist.

p.s. BYEBYE S! Have fun in far-far-land and come back and visit us often. You’ll be missed.
