Location(s): A.  732 Sainte-Catherine Street West, Montreal B.  1658, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal http://www.les3brasseurs.ca (All images photohogger) Let me start with the pros of the restaurant: Amazing beer-battered poutine.  Great atmosphere: loud, bustling, was fun to be there during the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Food (pros & cons): Everything was grease-central (could be a pro for some?).  The … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Montreal: Nil Bleu


Location: 3706 Rue Saint-Denis Montreal, QC http://www.nilbleu.ca/ Hands down the best Ethiopian restaurant I’ve been to thus far.  But don’t ask me, ask my Mom and Mom-in-Law who couldn’t stop raving about it.  And they know how to cook, if you know what I mean. The dishes we ordered were: YETIMATIM SALAD $4.95 (tomatoes, onions, … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Paris: Paul’s


Location: Outside the Louvre. Paul, the French bakery (since 1889) came highly recommended by our friend A, so when we discovered a kiosk outside the Louvre, we stood right in line! I must say, eating a chocolate chip baguette and tomato, mozzarella and basil sandwich under the shade of a tree in the Carrousel Gardens was one … Continue reading

Michel’s Baquette


Location: (Yorkdale Mall) 3401 Dufferin Street, Toronto http://www.michelsbaguette.com One of my favourite “go-to” bakeries in Toronto is Michel’s.  It’s an European-inspired cafe/bakery and there are several locations in Ontario.  It reminds me of Paul’s in Paris.  No nonsense pastries, sandwiches and cafe lattes. It’s the perfect spot for a giggly group of girls women to go … Continue reading

I know how to mangi. The food is tasty, fresh and MASSIVE.  Best bruschetta to date. If you plan accordingly you can feed your intera grande famiglia here for under $20!  Just … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Paris: McDonald’s


Don’t judge me. We did it in India, so we had to do it Paris. Eat at a McDonald’s, that is. And it was très magnifique! Gotta love this guy who posed for the picture! Oh we also had a Kronenbourg 1664 beer, but it wasn’t cold enough.

TRAVEL: Boston: Mike’s Pastry


Location: 300 Hanover Street Boston, MA http://www.mikespastry.com Is it touristy? Yes.  The woman behind the counter insisted that we take a plastic “Mike’s Pastry” bag for our box even though we had a bag we were going to put it into.  Nothing like advertising by carrying their logo, right? Is it ridiculously crowded, ALL THE … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Boston: Tory Row


Location: 3 Brattle Street Cambridge, MA http://www.toryrow.us YOU GUYS, I’VE FOUND MY FAVOURITE FRENCH TOAST! It’s at Tory Row, in Cambridge, Massachussettes! At first I was a little dismayed by it’s small portion size, making sharing all the more difficult. But with the blueberry jam and the New England maple syrup, and for only $7, … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Honolulu, Hawaii: Roys


Location: 226 Lewers St Honolulu, HI http://www.roysrestaurant.com After visiting Mama’s Fish House in Maui three years ago, we didn’t think anything could come close.  Let me tell you, Roy’s comes pretty close! I’ve never been to a restaurant where there has been such incredible attention to my dietary concerns!  Our server was worried that I … Continue reading
