Delightful, Delightful Dobra Tea

Ah, tea. A drink as old as civilization, and always a wonderfully refined way to relax. Not all tea shops are built equal, however. Dobra Tea in Portland, Maine, stands head and shoulders above just about every other tea place we’ve visited. And all we had to do was drive five hours from home to…

Eager Eating at Eventide Oyster Co.

Before we drove on down to Portland, Maine, we did a bit of homework and had read that the Eventide Oyster Co. was the place to eat. As it turns out, this was one time where the hype was very well-earned. When we arrived, the place was pretty packed, with no seats available. People were lined…

Portland, ME

Ever feel like having fresh seafood? Not just for one day, but for a whole weekend? Well, if you ever do, drive to Portland, Maine and get your fix. We drove down to Portland for the weekend and came back with more than just seafood in our bellies. Because it happens to be a very…

Momo to the Rescue

Tasty Pastry at C Sweet

We each have a BIG sweet tooth, so it’s always a source of joy when we discover a new pastry shop. What’s even better is when that pastry shop actually puts in the effort to make cakes and pies and pastries and other goodies with great care and thought.  This is what we found with…

Dynamic dinner and show at Le Balcon

“Dinner and a show” is a plain description of a night out, but it doesn’t have to be a plain experience at all. That was definitely our experience at Le Balcon, a dinner-theatre that’s right downtown 🙂 . It’s deep inside a pretty big church on Ste. Catherine Street, two blocks away from the Bay….

For those of you who live in Montreal you know that every neighbourhood has its fun busy street full of great cafés, unique stores, or delicious dining areas. St Henri has its Rue Notre Dame Ouest; Downtown has its Rue Ste. Catherine; Mile End has its Avenue du Parc; Old Montreal has its Rue St….

Come On Down to Comon!

Last post we shared our little hidden gem of Yelapa in Mexico. Today, we’ll be talking about a great little hidden much closer to home: Comon Korean Cuisine! For years, our go-to place for Korean food was Jumak. As much as we love that place (and we still do), it always took a small drive…

Hidden Gem of Mexico: Yelapa

It’s almost spring break and a lot of Canadians and Americans are thinking: MEXIIIICOOO. But when people think of a travels to Mexico, they often consider Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Acapulco, or Mexico City, as great places to visit. But …. Have you ever considered going to a smaller/less touristy place? We have, and it’s…

Amazing Afghan Food… in (North) America

So, if you read our last post, you know that we went a liiiiiittle hog wild with our going out last weekend. But it was well worth it. We went to places old and new (to us), and we’ll be making many return trips to most of them. First among them for a repeat engagement…
