COVID-19 Cooking Times 1: A Quick Cabbage Roll Recipe

So, like most of the planet, going to restaurants is something we had to stop doing regularly (well, altogether, really). We’ve spent a lot more time cooking, baking, and looking for recipes that approximate that wonderful restaurant flavour. Obviously, that doesn’t happen often… But when it does, and it’s somehow easy, well, we want to…

The joy of world class pastry: Brunch at Maison Christian Faure

Hello friends! Been a while, and boy have we missed this little blog. So, first of all: A reeeeeeally belated Happy New Year to one and all! We’ve been busy with a lot of things, but we’ve still been exploring Montreal (and elsewhere), but we couldn’t think of a better place to restart blogging than…

Which meal kit is better?

We’ve tried them all for you, so you don’t have to! Yep, the 5 main meal kits available in Montreal: Good Food, Miss Fresh, Chef’s Plate, Cook It, and Hello Fresh. We’re here to tell you what we think. First a little background for those who don’t know what meal kits are. Basically it’s a…

Imperial Dim Sum!

You know what the best brunch is? Chinese brunch. Specifically, dim sum. Oh yes. Recently, we took out Henry’s parents for dim sum, and we went to basically the fanciest dim sum place in Montreal: Restaurant Impérial. We’re not exaggerating about the fanciness – Impérial is in one of the newer buildings in Montreal’s Chinatown,…

TGIF: Let’ go to Café Aunja

Ahhh Friday. The joy of Friday. Don’t you like to celebrate this day with something simple and cozy sometimes? Nothing crazy, just to be in a relaxed atmosphere, ready to welcome the weekend. If you do and you live in Montreal (or you plan to visit), we have the perfect place for you: Café Aunja…

Happy Times at Highroller Lobster

Time for one final post from Portland (and then we get back to talking about awesome stuff in other places). This last one is about the Highroller Lobster Co., a neat foodcart-turned-diner with a decidedly different atmosphere. It was a great way for us to cap off our visit 🙂 . So, what made this…

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…

Momo to the Rescue

  Do you looooove sushi but are vegetarian? Or maybe allergic to seafood? Or perhaps you’re pregnant? Or maybe you just don’t feel like raw fish today? Whatever your reason is, we have the PERFECT place for you, and it’s called Sushi Momo. We are crazy about sushi, so much so that we could eat…

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…
