While Akemi and the dogs are back home holding the fort, I’m in Montreal to: a) celebrate my sister’s birthday and b) eat!
Day #1 in photos…
Lunch with mom and sis.
Ribs and friendship cake.
My best buddy, Ralphie.
Turkish ice cream. I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and flavour. The almond was good, but the pistachio was exceptional.
Meet-up with Lance and Kelli (photo courtesy of Lance and Kelli).
A dessert medley from Maison Christian Faure.
Check out this former bank turned cafe in Old Montreal.
Andria and Daisy in deep discussion.
Rib-eye steak and lobster tagliatelle at Le Chien Fumant.
Salted butter ice cream at Kem CoBa.
And this brings to an end my first day in Montreal – as well as my diet regimen.
Tomorrow’s forecast calls for smoked meat with a chance of chocolate-dipped soft serve.
P.S. I’ve really got to change this blog theme. It’s driving me nuts.
