  • Five days in June on a budget June 19, 2017
    Enjoyed my stay in Quebec last week. My favorite restaurant was Cafe du Monde in Quebec City. Other favorites were Cafe Terrasse Chez Catherine for ice cream and Cafe 1880 for coffee, both in Montreal. I appreciated the rec above for a Lancaster perch sandwich. We stopped at Bourdeau's in Lancaster for the famous sandwich […]
  • Atwater Market for tourist? June 19, 2017
    The Protestants didn't tend to have it any easier in terms of food culture. I'll let our Jewish, Muslim, Hindu etc friends speak for themselves. Ramadam karim to our Muslim friends.
  • 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. In my head I was minded and knew it wouldn't be as good as Trilogie but I was pleasantly surprised by my chicken and shiitake mushroom boiled dumplings. […]
  • Openings and Closings: April, May, June 2017 June 14, 2017
    Well I wasn't expecting Qing Hua quality but I'd be happy if it's at least similar to Yi Pin Xiang (in VSL).
  • Le Serpent, Le Filet, or Club Chasse et Peche? Lemeac or L'Express? June 14, 2017
    No real reason to recommend Le Filet over Le Serpent - one is better for seafood, the other for pasta, both are very good, so you can't go wrong whichever one you pick.
