New York City: Sweet & Savoury Foods

Happy tuesday! It was a holiday long weekend where I live (and in most other Canadian provinces) and I went on a little trip with my family. We went to new york city. I hadn’t been there since 2012 so I was excited to again, now that I was a little older. We were pretty…

Montreal: Poutine

Another montreal/quebec staple is poutine, which you’re supposed to pronounce as poot-in and not poo-teen. There are so many places that sell poutine and you can get some wild toppings. I wanted the basic though – fries, cheese and gravy. I know it doesn’t sound like much but you can easily mess up poutine. You…

Montreal: Bagel

Hi there! I’m sorry I’m only making my first September post now. I’m currently taking a mini vacation before the summer is over and I wanted a little break from everything. As you can see from the title, I am in montreal, quebec. I am visiting a friend here. If you ever visit this city,…

Banff: Sandwich + Beer

I guess there is nothing really representative of banff itself in this meal, but it is just what I ate while in banff, AB yesterday. We went to this somewhat hidden place called squish sandwich bar in the heart of the banff village. It’s a very cool place that serves food, drinks and they have…

Valemount: Pub Snacks

We went to this restaurant (The Moose Pub) in a little town called valemount, BC. The server recommended we order their battered fried pickles. ​I’ve had fried pickles before but not like this.  They are dill pickles coated in a cornmeal batter and fried. So they were super crunchy and a little spicy because they…

Dublin: Pub Grub

So this was our first real meal in Dublin. We went to this local pub called slattery’s and had fish and chips with a pint of guinness beer. Everything about the fish and chips meal was delicious – fish flakey and batter not too thick, fries crisp but fluffy, and it came with yummy tartar…
