Ok, let’s answer your question, “What the hell is a canelé?”
Well, first, I would kindly ask you watch your language.
If you must know, it’s a cute, little baked dessert from Bourdeaux and the servers pass them out to you as you exit the restaurant.
Oops! Did I ruin the surprise? So sorry!
Get over it, potty mouth.
Canelé is also the name of a cute (adjective repeat alert!) French restaurant in Atwater Village that would fit in perfectly as your neighborhood haunt. Too bad you don’t live in Atwater.
And if you do, stop rubbing it in.
They serve many traditional French dishes and also offer a very popular brunch. No reservations are accepted so be prepared to wait or fight for your table. It will be worth the black eye, trust me.
My Boeuf Bourguignon served over buttered noodles was quite the treat! You’re presented with tender chunks of beef over a ton of noodles, and you’ll probably need to take the rest home if you have any sense of decency. We aren’t animals, remember.
Especially if you’re going to order the incredible Flourless Chocolate Cake. You’re gonna want to order this, trust me. Don’t trust me on most other things, however. I’m quite the unsavory character.
