  • 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.

  • 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.
