One item that is different is their poutine. They have different flavours: vegetarian curry, vegetarian gravy and Mikan style beef stew. We tried the beef stew poutine ($8.50) and it wasn’t bad at all. The fries were crispy and the stew was heavy but not too salty.
We ordered the Masago Creamy Spaghetti ($10) and it’s pretty much the same as the one at Cafe de l’Orangerie. Made with squid, mushroom, asparagus, fish roe and cream sauce. The noodles are served al dente, the creamy sauce is not too heavy but the dish itself is filling. Even with the seafood components, it wasn’t too salty either. This is one of my favourite dishes here and at Orangerie, so I’d recommend trying it out.
I’m surprised that Mikan Cafe isn’t as busy at Cafe de l’Orangerie, but hopefully they’ll pick up. It’s definitely comparable to Cafe de l’Orangerie, so if you don’t want to take the trek all the way there and they have something that you enjoy found here at Mikan, you should visit.
