Spicy Stir Fry

Holly Stewart Growing up, my house had a fridge full of condiments. We had everything you could ever need to flavour your food, even when we hadn’t bought food to flavour.

Tucked on a quiet stretch of St. Laurent below Villeneuve Street, Robin des Bois possesses all the characteristics you’d expect from a well-heeled Plateau bistro: candles on the tables, a sophisticated wine list, and canard confit on the menu.
