Canada Food and Wine Experiences, In Pictures, Part 2

For the love of food photography, here is more pictures from our trip to Canada. Now we moved to the French Canada, Montreal and Quebec, and we definitely focused on experiencing the french-style food for as much as possible. Once again, if you want to read more on the actual restaurants we visited, you can find my reviews on Yelp (click here).

Let’s start with Montreal:

Cappuccino at Second Cup (the place is a striving Starbucks but not that great):

Steak at Le Grill Bistro:

Rack of Lamb at Le Grill Bistro (why is that rack of lamb always tastes amazing in Montreal?):

Breakfast at Chez Cora (again, but now in Montreal) – best Eggs Benedict I ever had, Hollandaise sauce is amazingly balanced !

More coffee – at Cafe Imagination (great place for inexpensive lunch in downtown Montreal):

Honestly – the coffee was good, but I love the cup…

Moving to Quebec now:

La Nouvelle France Resto-Bar Terrasse:

French Onion Soup (more classic than the one in Beef Baron):

Steak with Poutine (Poutine is Quebec’s specialty – french fries with melted cheese and gravy – very very good):

Quebec Meat Pie (with poutine, of course) – sad thing is that meat pie was supposed to be great, but it was so dry, it was almost inedible:

Breakfast at Cosmos Cafe:

Eggs Benedict with Duck Confit (Eggs Benedict tasted very good – except for the duck confit which was way too salty and simply made no sense in this dish…):

 

Panini Sandwich:

 

Le Brigantin Restaurant:

Yes, finally here is the wine – very nice rose LeRose Gabrielle, local Quebec wine:

Of course you can do Pizza any time and anywhere:

 

Lasagna (phenomenal, amazing array of spices, probably the best Lasagna I ever tasted):

 

Now, visiting Farmer’s Market in Quebec:

Fresh Berries:

I love Farmer’s Market where you can taste wine! Le Tourelle Vin Rouge (nice and simple):

Le Lapin Saute Restaurant ( the best food experience during the trip, real french cuisine):

Of course wine goes first: L’Angerose Rose wine – very good, full body:

Blue Cheese and Berries Turnover (delicious):

 

Escargot (unusual style and very tasty):

 

Rabbit Rilettes:

 

Cassoulet with rabbit leg and rabbit sausage (I’m very impartial to cassoulet and this one was excellent)

 

That concludes our food in pictures presentation. There still will be a blog post about Canadian wines, coming out soon. However, I want to mention that during this trip I managed to increase grape count by 5 (of course some are clones, but nevertheless):

St. Croix2009 De Lavoie La Tourelle Vin Rouge, Quebec
Radisson(ES 5-17)2010 Domaine L’Ange Gardien L’Angerose, Quebec
Sabrevois2010 Le Rosé Gabrielle Vignoble de la Rivière-du-Chêne, Quebec
Chardonnay Musque2009 Cattail Creek Chardonnay Musqué, VQA Four Mile Creek, Canada
Gamay Droit2009 Chateau des Charmes Gamay Noir St. David’s Bench Vineyard, Canada

That’s all, folks. Until the next time – cheers!
