On a cool fall night in Montreal, a tiny group of Yelp Elites were treated to a very special evening in another part of the world. The wonderful mother-daughter team behind Le Virunga invited Yelp Elites to a complimentary, exclusive preview of their very special menu for MTL à Table. We took a journey through the flavours and spices inspired by Pan-African, Sub-Saharan cuisines all prepared with locally grown ingredients. We also got to meet Hamidou Horticulture, a local farmer entrepreneur who is working to introduce vegetables from Africa and South America to Canadian plates, just one of the incredible suppliers this community-building restaurant works to spotlight and support.
“La période des récoltes et de l’action de grâce invite à témoigner de notre reconnaissance pour l’abondance qui nous entoure. Les mots me manquent pour exprimer à quel point je me suis sentie choyée d’être reçue dans ce restaurant.” Fanny C.
“What a wonderful event at a restaurant with an incredible concept and origins. The mom and daughter pairing is beautiful just on its own but the unique flavours and stunning presentations really elevated the experience here. The atmosphere of the restaurant is cozy and warm and I loved the menu for Mtl à table. I will definitely be back to order their delish table d’hôte in November.” Sam P.
