L’Affaire est Ketchup

Bistro in Outside Old Québec

Book ahead for this quirky local favorite with only eight tables. Dressed in T-shirts and baseball caps, bantering relaxedly with one another as they cook on a pair of electric stoves, founders Olivier Lescelleur St-Cyr and François Jobin specialize in home cooking with a trendy modern twist. Good selection of wines and mixed drinks at the well-stocked bar.

The ever-changing menu ranges from classics like duck breast with lentils, or stewed pork with mashed potatoes, to the unexpected – octopus salad with crunchy vegetables, or lime gelatin with apple, cucumber and mint mousse.
