Recently made a second visit to this restaurant, with my daughter and grand-daughter. I arrived with the expectation of having something original, as the establishment is also and "académie de cuisine". I chose a lamb burger with Indian spices, with a cauliflower soup as a first course. The soup was excellent, although not quite warm enough for me: I like the heat to add to the impact of the soup-tasting experience. The lamb burger was an interesting creation, well-balanced with respect to taste and texture, although I would have liked a bit more spice presence. The hostess is quite knowledgeable about her wines and pairings with her food, and recommended a sturdy Chardonnay, which went well with the spicy flavour of the lamb. Dessert was a respectable apple crumble, served with an excellent coffee.
My daughter, who has lived in Joliette for several years, claims that the Malize is "by far" the best restaurant in town, and I have no difficulty believing her. I look forward to going back on a future visit.
