From Korea to New York, bonding over food has been a big part of my life. Those moments with family & friends were savored and well documented, whether it was cooking up a recipe at home or dining out at up and coming restaurants. Then to share my love for food along with some traveling adventures, #WhatKellyEats became to be!

Montreal Eats!

My first solo trip was to Montreal and it was such an exciting and amazing trip. Hoping to try more food the next time around as well as visiting / seeing more festivals and museums! Below are some of my food adventures! C'était trés manifique. Shoutout to my lovely Airbnb host and her friends!

So the first thing I do when I land in Montreal, I turn on my Google Maps and head over to La Banquise. Poutine is all I have been thinking about while I was planning this trip, so I was pretty excited. Side note: as my first solo trip, this was also the first time I ate a restaurant all alone. I casually opened up a book and read it while I ate (#QuietTime #EatingAlone).

I tried La Matty (bacon, green peppers, onions and mushrooms) and some La Banquise beer. It was a bit salty but overall enjoyed my first poutine!

Probably was one of my favorite things in Montreal so far, recommended by my lovely host! I have a big sweet tooth so maybe that's why I enjoyed these "beavertails" so much. The top is The Avalanche (Skor, cheesecake icing, and caramel) and the bottom, The Classic (cinnamon and brown sugar). #SugarRush!


There was obviously a bit of a wait when I got here, but well worth the wait. Every bite was amazing even though I just possibly could not finish this sandwich! As told by the waiters, one must get the side of pickles and fries with the black cherry soda with this dish: Smoked Meat Sandwich!


The Fairmont Bagel from Canada was one of the MOST memorable bagels I have ever eaten! It's the perfect portion and size for a bagel with cream cheese, especially in comparison to the typical NY/NJ bagels (usually double the size of the dough and amount of cream cheese). I usually don't like too much sesame seeds on food usually either, but didn't mind this at all. It was the perfect chewy-crunchy-yet-soft bagel indeed. Anyone visiting Montreal, please please go, get, and eat Sesame-seed Bagel.


Unfortunately, I only got to visit one coffee shop during my short stay at Montreal, but it was a lovely one. Enjoyed a latte in the morning before my flight back to New York!
