  • Five days in June on a budget June 28, 2017
    Thanks for that. Along with the perch roll, the clam chowder has a good reputation. I had paid a small supplement to change from fries to poutine for my perch roll combo, so I didn't think I'd have room for the chowder. (I was right.)

    I've been meaning to try out their breads Willie, how does their baguette rank? It is a block and change west of Coolbrook between Earnscliffe and Clanranald. There is another recent bakery near Coolbrook and Decarie called Chez Masha but never tried that either. There's an opening soon place between Decarie and Coolbrook for what […]
  • Atwater Market for tourist? June 26, 2017

  • Montreal vs Toronto June 16, 2017
    I only get to London for a few days every year or so. The last good dinner I had, last May, was a traditional English meal at Rules,which was recommended to me by Harters . To me, the restaurantlooked like a bit of a tourist trap, and the service was soso, but we enjoyed the […]

  • Zhao Ravioli Dumplings (ex Trilogie spot) June 15, 2017
    Zhao ravioli dumplings 8521 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal, QC H2P 2M9 Was in the neighborhood so why not. If you don't take a chance you'll never know.
