Canadian Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup served with a Pretzel Roll – $5.75
I guess this is the breaking point of what people are willing to pay, but we would be very happy to pay more for a larger portion. As it stands, you get a half-full cup of the cheesiest and best soup ever created and a warm pretzel roll to dip. We can’t justify the price for the portion, even if it is continually one of the best tasting items at Food & Wine. If you’ve never indulged, you should really give it a shot. You won’t regret it.
Le Cellier Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle-Butter Sauce – $8.75
The ever-popular Le Cellier Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon is available once again this year. There’s an amazing truffle-butter sauce on top with some mushrooms that make this dish absolutely stellar. There’s a major gamble when ordering the beef filet from Canada, though: The cut. We’ve ordered it numerous times where you get not only a small portion but one with a lot of fat, whereas other times, we get a large portion that’s virtually no fat whatsoever. It’s worth the gamble.
