Corner View: "menu del día"

A nice idea, really: the daily menu of a typical restaurant where I live. I have been thinking about it for a while. My favorite restaurant in Saint-Hyacinthe is definitely le Café Zira, I have already talked about it. But to be honest, if you ask Maskoutains (that is how we are called because of the Yamaska river that runs through our town) the typical restaurant here is Restaurant Lussier.

It has been serving all kinds of food for nearly 50 years. At lunchtime, you better have a reservation, because it is really crowded. A typical meal? Well, we're in Quebec, so of course, we mean "poutine". Restaurant Lussier's is pretty awesome; my favorite (because there are many different kinds), is the Italian poutine. Special cheese (with the ideal texture that goes squish, squish), (delicious) fries and spaghetti sauce. I know, I know, it is junk food, but delicious junk food I must admit ;-)
