Bistro Bizzle

by sara on April 2, 2011

We met my Dad last week for lunch at Bistro B.  This place is ridiculously awesome.  Their menu has 8,000 things on it.  You think I’m kidding?  Go there.  It will rock your world.

We had to drive clear across Canada to get there so my dad had already ordered by the time we arrived.  Fine by me!  Let’s chow.  We started off with roasted pork spring rolls served with Thai chili dipping sauce.

Next up was the Asian fried chicken.  KFC and Popeye’s WISH they had this recipe.

My absolute favorite dish at Bistro B would have to be the calamari.  They use a very light breading – unlike anything I’ve ever had fried – and I think they use pieces of calamari steak rather than the squiggles you normally get.  It is beyond good.  They toss it up with some onions and jalapeno slices for perfection.

My Dad still expects me to eat my greens so he added an order of Chinese broccoli.  SO GOOD.  They really know how to cook veggies here.

This is the standard Thai chili dipping sauce but they also have a slew of sauces at the table so you can spice it up however you like.

My father is an animal and eats thai chili’s on everything.  Not to mention hot vinegar and sriracha.  I’m pretty sure he shaves his face with habanero shaving cream.  This is his rice.  Normal.

The interior of Bistro B is adorably decorated with lanterns, a Buddha shrine, and seasonal items.  They also have multiple tv’s but don’t expect to catch the NCAA tournament here.  More like a sumo match.  For dessert, you can wash down your meal with a bubble tea or smoothie.  They have crazy flavors including avocado mungbean and durian.  I’ve had the avocado mungbean and it was surprisingly DELICIOUS!

If you are a true champion, you will attempt the Bistro B challenge: 5 pounds of pho noodles, beef and broth in an hour and a half.  I’m pretty sure our waitress said you don’t have to finish the broth.  One Chinese man has already done it.  You win a $200 gift certificate.  Come on, live a little.  Stuff yourself silly.

I think your dad should really step it up with the spicy foods. Especially that rice. It’s not red enough from the Thai chili.
