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…

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…

How to Deal with the Pain of Winter

  [Mariam]: I hate winter! Well, I think most people hate winter, especially long & cold ones (5 months and an average of -15 in Montreal, ouuff ). [Henry]: Heeeey! I don’t hate winter. [Mariam]: That’s because you’re crazy 😜. Anyways, I hate it so much that I constantly need distraction from it or I may lose my mind….

Kinton Ramen Rocks

Henry: Our love of Japanese culture and Japanese food has led us to yet another wonderful restaurant in downtown Montreal: Kinton Ramen! Mariam: Oh yes indeed, Kinton Ramen was a delight. One of my friends sang the restaurant’s praises to us, so we were only too happy to go check it out. And we’re very…

Choir Boy

Mariam: For my birthday, my awesome friends and colleagues took me to see the play “Choir Boy” at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal. I hadn’t heard of this play at all until they brought it up so I was intrigued and happy to have the chance to discover it. So off we went. On a…

When Japan BBQs

We have a serious soft spot for Japanese food and culture – it’s why we recommend Tokyo as a spring break destination. It’s also why we try a lot of Japanese restaurants in Montreal. Gyu-Kaku is one of the more recent happy discoveries that Henry made, and one which he can’t wait to share with…

Caffé Farina – Fantastic Italian Sandwiches and Desserts!

Mariam: Sometimes you come across the best thing ever without even thinking about it. It was a Tuesday afternoon, I was just coming back from my hairdresser’s when I realized I was a bit hungry. As I was walking on Notre Dame Street in Saint Henry (Southwestern Montreal), I said to myself “Well, I’ll stop…

Queen Sheba Is Royally Good

Remember how we mentioned in our Mile End post that Restaurant Queen Sheba is one of our favourite restaurants? Well, today we’re going to explain why! Mariam: As our longer-term readers know, I’m from Ethiopia, and grew up eating traditional Ethiopian food. Because of that, Ethiopian cuisine is something that always makes me feel like I’m…

Confortable for Comfort Food

We love discovering new places. We’re especially tickled when we make discoveries just right under our noses 🙂 . This was the case for Confortable, a resto-bar literally a block away from our home. We found this place when we took one of our usual walks one winter evening. It was one of a spate…
