Driving up to Montréal this morning — with no accommodations and barely any cash.
Here’s hoping this impromptu trip will go well!
Breakfast at 4:30AM:
Fueling up on coffee for the long drive up to Canada!
Snack at a rest stop in Sharon, Vermont:
Snack from Dessert de Taiwan, Montréal, Canada:
Not bad, but a bit dry. The cute shapes make these cakes totally worth it though!
Late Lunch at Nudo, Montréal, Canada:
The fresh hand-pulled noodles were really good, you can taste the chewiness of the gluten. But the broth itself was a bit bland and I would have liked more spices.
Snack from Patisserie Callia, Montréal, Canada:
Snack from Patisserie Bao Bao Dim Sum, Montréal, Canada:
Too much bao, not enough black sesame filling!
Snacks from Patisserie Callia, Montréal, Canada:
I’ve missed Asian baked goods!
The red bean paste is good, but way too sweet.
Late Dinner at Vua Sandwiches, Montréal, Canada:
Very sweet coffee, but the strong bitter taste of the beans held up against the condensed milk. Only Vietnamese iced coffee has been able to do this, all other sweetened coffees just mask the coffee flavour. I also really enjoyed the banh mi, even though there was a bit too much mayo for me and I would have liked more tofu. However, the price can’t be beat (less than $4 Canadian dollars for the sandwich)!
