Salad of mixed greens, fresh vegetables and balsamic. Who knew that a salad could be as amazing as this one was? I could have made a meal of just the salad, however, it was a special meal day and I went for salad and an entree. — at Sauvagine (La) Restaurant.

Red Snapper (flown in fresh that morning)  filet on a bed of wild rice and fresh vegetables. With a white wine, lemon butter sauce. It just came in this morning…it was so fresh, so light, so melt in your mouth delicious. at Sauvagine (La) Restaurant.

Lobster Carbonara Tagliatelle; lobster bisque, smoked bacon, shallots, sundried tomatoes & egg yolk on its shell. – Bocata Restaurant and Wine Bar. It was very good and the restaurant came highly recommended, unfortunately, something made me break out in hives all over my stomach, back, neck and arms  not to mention severe intestinal problems shortly after I finished eating. (insert sad face)

Braised Lamb Shank. A first for me. A light tomato based gravy with herbs. It was wonderful. I also ate some of the spinach, which I do not like (cooked). It too was very good.
The soup was a carrot and leak soup.

Braised Lamb Shank. A first for me. A light tomato based gravy with herbs. It was wonderful. I also ate some of the spinach, which I do not like (cooked). It too was very good. The soup was a carrot and leak soup. Again, very good. I ate here last year, had red snapper for the first time and almost licked my plate it was all so amazing. I returned & once again trusted the owner's recommendation. — at Sauvagine (La) Restaurant.

How’s this for a bit of lobster meat?? Found this Food truck along the river — at Muvbox.

One of the movie set security people told me about this food truck. I have my Gloucester shirt on today. How's this for a bit of lobster meat?? I couldn't fgure out how to take a selfie of me eating it without all the meat ending up on the ground. — at Muvbox.

Spinach, basil salad and fries. Hats off to the chef for thinking outside the box on the Lobster Roll. Bits of tomato, zuchinni, red onion and lettuce with a horseradish based mayo. It was excellent

Skate ala Chuck Hughe’s at his La Bremner restaraunt

and Shrimp Panzanella The featured drink was also mighty tasty. Who knew there were many kinds of bitters? (they have over 20 because they make all their own syrups for root beer, coke, etc. as well as special drinks each nite all with fresh ingredients and made in house) My drink had rhubarb bitters because it was a pureed rhubarb, some kind of Brazilian rum I think? and other stuff. All I know was it was the most expensive meal I’ve ever ordered, but it was soooo worth it! Magnifico! And look how pretty!

I saw people eating these on the streets and had to track it down and check it out. They are actually pretty good! Tall Fred said his favorite is the Peanut Butter one shown below.

Montreal’s famous Poutine. Poutine bars are the place to be at night. Especially after a night of heavy drinking, so I am told.
