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.
