Mum was told she had to try this national Canadian dish – Poutine.
But she kept hearing “Putin” and was really feeling sick having to eat that.
We managed to find a restaurant that would let me in – and our friend, Peg pointed it out on the menu.
It sure looks like a lot of food, Mum. Are you sure you can finish all that?
Mum’s verdict – whoa! That was HUGE – and not used to eating French Fries in mouthfuls.
We didn’t have much luck with restaurants – they have a very strict rule in Quebec. Even though the restaurants are listed as dog-friendly, it means they allow dogs in the outdoor seating area and in some cases – on the other side of the barrier. It was too early in the season to have outdoor seating.
But we got lucky again – and today we found Burgundy Lion – and believe it or not an English Pub which had an interior patio.
There were lots of pictures of England, the Queen and even one from our neighbourhood – LOL.
The people were nice though – they said they were sorry I couldn’t go in.
May’s comment: There are a lot of dogs in Montreal – saw a few doodles but not as many as in NYC and LA.
There was even a dog park near our hotel.
We could go into shops, but the restaurant health and safety rules are really tight. They absolutely refuse entry inside. When they are listed dog-friendly, it meant dogs are allowed on the patio. So not much luck with dining at any of the nicer restaurants.
