Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Come along with me for some hardy eats in snowy Montreal, Canada!
First Up: Poutine!
You just really shouldn’t come to Montreal unless you plan to get poutine. Some people claim it was invented in Montreal! Classic poutine is made of French fries and cheese curds, covered in brown gravy. I got mine with chicken (pictured below), but it comes in all sorts of ways! Get yours with smoked meat, lobster, sausage, and more!
Smoked Meat Sandwich
Wow! This smoked meat thing really is fantastic. It’s stacked between two slices of bread with mustard, and is just what the high winds, snowy days, and sub-freezing temperatures call for!
Crepes with Real Maple Syrup
Montreal is a little taste of France in North America, so crepes were high on my food list! Add in fresh whipped cream and real maple syrup, and you have breakfast! Have them plain, stuffed, or covered in peanut butter!
Whether you choose cheese or chocolate, fondue is the thing to do! It’s warm, it’s smooth, and it’s delicious! Ours came with various breads, veggies, and fruit!
Montreal is known for its bagel scene. This bagel and smoked salmon sandwich came with a delightful crock of French onion soup as well! Just right after a day of walking the cobbled streets in the snow.
Pastries and Baked Goods
Because you must visit a patisserie and boulangerie in a town that is so proud of its French culture and background! You will not be disappointed!
Montreal’s coffee is definitely influenced by the European style. Need a caffeine boost or a warm-up from the inside out on a cold Montreal afternoon? Pop into one of Montreal’s many coffee shops and sip your way through an (espresso or two!) while you watch the flakes fall!
