MTL (9/23-9/25)

This past weekend I drove 5 hours east (much less than how long it should've taken...) with my friend to visit our friend who goes to school in Montreal. Last time I went to Montreal was about 3 years ago for Halloween. I only remember the city at night back then so I was happy to have more time walking around the city this time.

The first night, we went to our friend's friend's penthouse apartment for dinner. She made us homemade quiche and spinach salad... so yummy. I loved the decor! Then we went out to a small wine-tasting at their other friend's house.

Our trip was focused around food and all the different foods we had to eat while we were there... so the next day we had brunch at Universel. This is Ilana's eggs benedicte and my western omelette.

After sitting in Parc La Fontaine for a while, we walked back to get poutine and stopped by this cupcake shop, Les Petits Gateaux to see the pretty cupcakes.

They had sea salt caramel... my weakness!

Then famous poutine at Patati Patata... omg, amazing.

The place is tiny, with a little walkway from the back of the diner to the front door as wide as an airplane aisle. I don't like olives (except on pizzas, or ciabatta), so Natalie had those, but the vinegary juice from the olive made the poutine taste so good.

After dinner with my other friend who lives in Montreal (all-you-can-eat sushi), the next day, we only had 2 hours to get Montreal bagels from two famous places to compare, and eat frozen yogurt.

They had such good flavours... Plain, Lychee, Cheesecake, Key Lime Square, Chocolate, Raspberry, Blood Orange, and Pumpkin Pie. I got Plain, Lychee, Key Lime, and Raspberry.

I'll post the rest of the pictures from my Eurotrip soon...
