Charcut

Been wanting to try Charcut for ages. I’ve never been around to try their infamous express lunch deals but finally made it happen during Stampede week.

We dropped by on a Thursday for lunch and didn’t have any trouble grabbing a table. They have a pretty cute patio but only a few people were taking advantage of the 30+ degree weather. Everyone else took cover inside.

Service was decent although our waiter seemed to be all over the place. He asked if we were sharing (of course) so they brought everything out together on one platter. Beautifully presented and seriously so much food!

The menu has several options but we had eyes solely for the “Charcut lunch all at once”.

They also had a Stampede features menu.

Carrot and red pepper soup
DSC01742The soup was incredible. No words can describe how good this was. Filling too.

Wild greens with house vinaigrette
DSC01750Vinaigrette was tasty but the salad itself was pretty standard.

Parmesan fries
DSC01748So. Many. Fries. The house made ketchup was good. Wish they gave you more.

Kitchen pickles – you get two massive slices. Uber crunchy.

Daily sandwich ($16.00)
DSC01746BBQ beef sandwich. The focaccia it came on didn’t feel like a very good match.

Both the meat and bread were soft so there was no contrasting textures, which it desperately needed.

Daily spit-roasted and smoked rotisserie ($25.00)
DSC01744Slices of pork loin and seasoned with cayenne, paprika, fennel and garlic. Pork loin is finicky to deal with but this was moist and tender.

The Dijon mustard sauce was sharp and you could taste the horseradish.

Bag of warm cookies
DSC01752We were too full to eat these so took them for a midnight snack. These were delightfully fresh. The pig paper clips are beyond cute.

It’s a bit pricier than a typical lunch but great quality and totally worth it. I’d be there frequently if I worked downtown.
