Montreal by Palate

As it says in the title of this entry, our experience of Montreal has mainly been focused around eating!

Before coming to Montreal, our good friend and chef, Francois, gave a us a list of “must eats” and our entire time here has reloved around our looking for and walking to one great eatery after another….. and tonight was the BEST!

We waited for three days to eat at Restaurant au Pied de Cochon… it started the day of our arrival:

Day 1: We called for a table only to find that it was the one day of the week that they were closed…

Day 2: We walk all day with 536 ave Duluth as our final destination only to find that it is fully booked, next opening… tomorrow night at 7:30 pm… and only at the bar

Day 3: We arrive with high expectations but still hoping for a table instead of two seats at the bar…. as it turns out, the bar faces right onto the open kitchen – an absolutely AMAZING experience for anyone who appreciates watching skilled professional chefs moving at a high rate of speed for hours – unreal!

We sat looking at the menu for awhile…even with an English menu, I had no idea what my options were…. after asking for suggestions… I still had no idea what he said! In the end, I went with the second thing…..that’s always a safe choice, especially when the waiter nods in total agreement with your well informed decision!

When my food arrived… as you can probably guess… I  had no idea what it was in front of me… and my first bite… absolutely AMAZING! It had all my favorite tastes!!!! What was in it – I have no idea!!! Would I have it again? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Ozlem finally had poutine from the homeland…. it was FANTASTIC!

It’s been a great few days… tomorrow… Toronto!
