In a small inn in Edmunston, New Brunswick, we had the best meal of our East Coast trip. We stayed overnight and had a very comfortable stay in their beautiful inn.
The Les Jardin Inn has a menu that features local meats, cheeses and seasonal foods, prepared with care, and is Acadian inspired. Our meal took place in a small private dining room, and started off with an amuse bouche of tiny sweet shrimp in a pesto sauce.
It was enjoyed by all! Now it was time to start the meal.
To start my meal, I had a beautifully presented Caprese Salad ($12) with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil and vinegar. It was perfect.
This Maritime Seafood Chowder ($12) may look unassuming, but my mom spent the rest of the trip trying (and failing) to find a chowder that was just as good or better than this one!
A refreshing Green Salad ($6) with house dressing.
Hearty potato soup, the soup of the day. ($6)
Fresh Linguine ($19) with Fiddleheads, sauteed vegetables and wild mushrooms.
Seafood Vol-au-vent ($27) with shrimps, scallops and lobster in seafood sauce.
Pork Tenderloin ($22) stuffed with fiddleheads and Fromagerie Le Détour cheese, served with grilled veggies and a colourful mash. The combination of the fiddle heads and local cheese in the pork loin was perfect and packed with flavour.
Daily dessert ($6), cake topped with fresh, seasonal fruit.
Followed by a rich blueberry cheesecake ($6) for dessert.
I wouldn’t hesitate to return to this restaurant. Service was attentive and friendly, and the food was fresh, delicious and memorable. Take a look at the menu!
