First we went to Le Cheval Blanc, a great neighbourhood bar a subway stop or two away from my place. It snowed like crazy the whole night and I was once again glad I invested in a good pair of boots.
They had some INCREDIBLE beers. We tried four varieties: Blonde, Citra Wiezen, Triple Bock, and Marzen. The Triple Bock stole the show - it was a thick dark beer with hints of coffee, caramel, and fruit. Just sipping it was an experience, as you could taste so many flavours at once - and the multiple flavours didn't clash or override each other. Just awesome.
Around 1:30AM we decided to hike to La Banquiste, a famous 24-hour poutine place that features over 25 different kinds of poutine! The walk normally would have taken around 20 minutes but took a bit longer going through heavy snow.
At 2am the restaurant was packed and there was a line outside. We waited about 10 minutes before we got in; after that the service was fast.
I ordered Poutine B.O.M - poutine with bacon, onions, and sausage on it.
It looked like a brown lump but tasted amazing!!
Scott ordered Poutine Taquise, with guacamole, sour cream, and tomatoes:
Healthy choice! Haha
The portions were comically large and neither of us could finish. By the time we were done the metros had stopped running so we each walked home - it took me about 30 or 40 minutes because of the snow. I finally crashed in my bed around 3am and had my first sleep my new bed and apartment! Comfortable!
Today was a slow-paced day, which was perfect considering the beer and poutine last night. I did laundry, bought a TV, talked to my mom on the phone, and talked my cousin and her family to set up a supper for later in the week. I'm hoping that FedEx delivers all of my stuff tomorrow!
That's all for now!
The poutine looks so much terrifying in my dreams. We should have taken a picture of that hill that we climbed.ReplyDelete
