A Scrumptious Ready-to-Eat Feast
Eatz Encore stunningly satisfies all your food cravings with its
imitable variety of made-on-the-spot connoisseur dishes. The minute you walk into this cozy casual
place in Westmount, Quebec, the Eatz Encore effect takes over. Soon
you’ll be swooning in the nicest of ways. Your mouth will be watering; you’ll
start smiling, then choosing from the vast selections of food on display. Soon
you’re forgetting every problem you’ve ever had, not just because of the astoundingly
delicious food, but also because there’s a huge human ingredient behind Eatz
Encore’s doors. Genuinely warm family folk who run the place provide a welcome
dose of divine dishes that perk up an emotional blahs.
Konefal who owns the restaurant has a warm, generous spirit. Despite the speed
at which you get the food, there’s no stress here. Sons, Chris and Patrick join
their mom, adding to this remarkably relaxed atmosphere – another beautiful
ingredient at Eatz Encore.
Behind the Counter
Kindness, Food Prepared with Love for Heavenly Taste Enjoyment
Greeting you is a
mix of aromas from the endless eye-popping display of freshly made gourmet
dishes with aromas from Italy, Mexico,
the Orient, India and Poland - to name
only a few of Krystyna’s cuisine
capabilities. She’s been cooking for over 30 years, and in 2003 she opened her
multi-pleasing meal haven filled with different distinct dishes. It never gets
boring here. You need at least one hour to visually take in all the goodies here;
plus you can sample some.
Food for Health and
Krystyna who was born to cook. Chefs,
Shipon and Milano create Eatz Encore’s palette-pleasing plates, 35 delightful
dishes for your table here. And let’s not forget about the 65 or so different
ready-go take home yummies already wrapped in the lower display case. It’s a
royal feast, and best of all, the food you’ll be enjoying is chemical free, and
get this…gluten-free too in many dishes
and desserts - all devoid of saturated fats, grease, sugar and all the other
“false food” ingredients that you find in many traiteurs and fast food outlets.
not fast food; this is fabulous superbly healthy food ready to go right to your
table in the restaurant or for take-out eating. Or when at home, call in and
have it delivered. Their delivery menu has over 100 classic and exotic dishes!
Is it any wonder Krystyna sometimes starts cooking at 3 am to make sure all her
hungry customers can get their food fast!
several times to eat here. I can’t gloat enough over the General Tao chicken.
Spicy and sweet, the tender chicken is perfectly seasoned. But before you dig in, why not ask Krystyna to
make you up a plate of her most incredible salads or veggie creations.
You see them all at the
counter. The quinoa is amazing. Hearts of palm, Kalamata olives baby tomatoes,
feta and peppers of all kinds find their home in these healthy generous
servings. And don’t’ forget prices go by the pound. You’re not stuck having to
order different sizes.
You must try the
cabbage rolls. I love both the veggie and meat ones. I’ve also taken home her
quesadillas that are packaged and ever so low in price but big on taste. How
about her burritos?
I preferred the
jumbo tempura shrimp to her grilled ones for taste. Speaking of which, I also
love her perfectly prepared tandoori chicken and the New Zealand orange roughy (fish) covered
in almond slices. The salmon is sautéed in ginger with white lemon grass for
simple yet optimum flavour. It was so tender... absolutely wonderful! None of Eatz’s dishes is soggy, drenched in a
hodgepodge of everything with complex flavours. Krystyna keeps it simple. Wine
vinaigrette made my salads superb, and the dumplings I took home were as
delicate in texture as was the huge 2-inch thick hamburger steak I snagged for
eating later at home. It was covered in sautéed onions. Wow!
Food You Never Have
to Prepare; Just Answer your Door or Sit inside
Eatz Encore is a
place of international gourmet surprises and that’s what makes it so much fun
to keep coming back for more. The freshly-made meal repertoire is so vast, I
call it Quebec’s Disneyland
of delectable dishes. Eatz Encore is a perfect name for all the things it does;
you can call in and pre-order what you want (once you get to know your favourites)
and you can also count on at your door delivery. You can order lots of food or
go for some small specialities too.
Encore’s delivery menu has over 100 different gourmet dishes – too exciting to
mention this time, but have you ever had stuffed Portobello mushrooms, lamb
meatballs or knishes that could quell a hungry grouch? How’s that for tending
to all the logistics of getting food to you fast. Of course, I just love going
in there to gaze at all the goodies, sitting down, getting my favourites and
trying new meals too.
By the way, don’t miss out on the brownies; they almost melt
in your mouth. The sugarless apricot cranberry cookies are incredible! One thing for sure, you can eat your way to heaven,
but you’ll never feel heavy in the belly. Thank you Krystyna for making cold
winter days as warm and wonderful as the soups she makes!!!
