We’ve been to quite a few new places since our last check in with you guys but we never bring a proper camera for pictures so i guess i can try to describe it to you and give general ratings of the places (if i can even remember them).
We went to a little resto outside peel metro called Deville. It’s an 18+ resto since they have a full bar license. Trendy atmosphere but expensive. The clientele was an older age group.. I’d say maybe late twenties and up. We had already eaten dinner and were going out for drinks afterward so we just wanted a dessert. We ordered beignets and the double chocolate (or double fudge wtv) cake. When it arrived, we were in awe at how huge the portions were.. i guess we do get our money’s worth but it’s still pretty overwhelming. We were splitting it three ways so if you’re ordering for yourself, expect to bring home a doggie bag. The cake was a whole cake with a serving of ice cream. The beignets were like extra large timbits.. the ones with white powder all around them and inside, it was just plain dough and a bit of cinnamon sugar. We got about 8 total. That came with a caramel dip and a nutella mousse type thing. They were really good. The chocolate cake on the other hand was extremely rich and tasted of straight up cocoa. i wouldn’t suggest taking it if you’re not a fan of dark chocolate. Also the waitress we had was super nice. the whole staff, actually is super friendly and polite. I’d go back if i had more cash munz.
We went to McKibbins on St.Laurent.. which is technically not a restaurant but they serve food so. We had an order of fish and chips as well as some Belfast chicken wings (which were effing massive!.. nearly the size of a small chicken leg). Go there with an empty stomach if you’re planning on ordering food and not just drinks because even though they were delicious, we could barely finish the wings. They are really spicy too.. they give you the option of mild medium or hot and the medium sauce was pretty intense. It’s fine though, wash it down with a Harp or Guinness ;)
hmm.. can’t think of much more right now.. we go to pubs quite a bit and not so many restaurants anymore.
OH! yes yes yes, how could i forget! Last week, we went to a place in the west island called Jukebox Burger. The decor was so cute.. it was all fifties inspired and there were pictures of marlon brando on the walls
(he was such a massive babe omg). They had a jukebox too (obviously a place like that would have to have one…it’s even in their name!). So the way it works is you choose your bread, then you choose your patty (either meat or veggie burgers). You choose your toppings (onions, cheese, bacon, etc..) then you choose your side dish.. now that i think of it, the process is very similar to subway haha! Some of us ordered some milkshakes, and rootbeer floats which were all delicious. The food itself was really good too! I would definitely go back.
We went to La Banquise a while ago. It was my first time and it was pretty cool to have different flavoured poutine. I don’t think anything beats poutine at like 2am when you’re slightly under the influence and in good company haha. We tried a pizza poutine and a taco one or mexicali something.. it came with guacamole and salsa.. and a pogo poutine. which was exactly what you’d imagine; a poutine with cut up pieces of a pogo on it. We’d definitely go back.. hopefully the queue isn’t too long when you guys go! You guys will enjoy no matter what you order because at the base of whatever crazy topping they come up with, you still get your fries and cheese curds with the good ol’ poutine sauce so you really can’t go wrong at this place.
Enjoy, guys! Hope this post was helpful. Summer is here so we can all take the time to enjoy our days with friends and try new places to eat!
Next review: BOFINGER! (can’t tell you when it’ll be up, though.)
