I'm back! And I've got poutine!

Huge-ass long hiatus. I know. Life...and stuff...happened.
But now? I'M BACK!

Much has happened since the last time I posted. RL aside, I've discovered the joy of BBQ ribs, the cozy warmth of pupuserias and the stout tastiness of pierogi.

Also, I finally visited this landmark Montreal cafe:

I always knew that they had great coffee and desserts, but I was surprised at how good their food is too!

So far I've had a roast beef panini (very filling, but a little on the dry side), cauliflower cream soup (I love creamy soups, period) and a light, fluffy chocolate cheesecake. I also hear that they serve a mean breakfast.

My favorite dish though, has to be this:

Philly steak poutine! Fries, cheese, philly steak, grilled onions and mushrooms all topped with gravy sauce....mmmm. Incredibly fattening, but also incredibly delicious!

Brûlerie St-Denis has got over a dozen locations all over Montreal, but my suggestion would be to stay clear of the ones inside malls and keep to the bigger shops that have terrasses. The original ones actually on St-Denis street (near the Mont-Royal and Berri-UQAM metros respectively) and the one on Côte-des-Neiges are my faves.

Okay, time to go! I know that I have at least another post to do about Paris and oh, about every new eatery that I've discovered since. So until next time and...bon appétit!
