Boston’s Best Bets

Like I did for my Montreal List, I'll continually add to this list of my favourite places in Boston whenever I find something great. I'll start with a bunch of restaurants where you can eat for cheap, and then move on to the pricier options that are well worth it for a special occasion. (Every list … Continue reading Boston’s Best Bets

Au Pied de Cochon, a Montreal Food-Lover’s Rite of Passage

Last month, I went to Au Pied de Cochon with three of my friends. It was a foodie pilgrimage that was a long time coming- my wonderful friend Zoë and I had been talking about going ever since we were in Rez in 2011. We had a carefully-crafted plan that involved going in a group, … Continue reading Au Pied de Cochon, a Montreal Food-Lover’s Rite of Passage

They do carry a certain amount of elegance, which makes sense because as you throw back these beautiful bivalves, you're basically swallowing $1-4 at a time. It's so worth it, though! SO worth it. Splitting a dozen (or two...) … Continue reading Apps & Oysters: Bivalves on a Budget

5 à Ceviche at Mochica

****For those outside Montreal, 5 à 7 (cinq à sept) is the city's name for Happy Hour, so my silly title is actually a stellar pun!! (?????)**** A few weeks ago, I got my first paycheque from my new job. Weeks of data entry and research assistantship were finally reflected in my bank account! To celebrate, … Continue reading 5 à Ceviche at Mochica
