Second vacation of 2016 and the list will probably go on. Montreal is a city that I always look forward to visiting because of the food, the people, and the culture. Montreal is my home in my head because it sums up the identity I want to have in life. The identity of living without a care in the world.
I was invited to go to this beautiful city by one of my friends and I really loved it. She's always fun to be with and I thought it would be nice to see her after a long time. I had to take this opportunity to see her since it was a long weekend in Toronto, all thanks to family day. We used Airbnb for the very first time (my friends paid). I wouldn't say much here because I didn't like the hospitality of the host, also I wouldn't post any picture of the home because I believe that should be private. Let's just say, I would rather stay in a hotel and let them over charge me for one night.
Two restaurants we made sure we explored were Cacao 70 and Juliette & chocolat. Cacao 70 was my favorite out of the two. It appeals to my innermost sweet tooth and I loved every bit of interior design at the restaurant. At Cacao 70, I had Crepe fruit and Cacao with extra topping, and choco Americain (hot chocolate.) The hot chocolate is the best I have had so far.
Juliette & chocolate was decent. I felt they should have topped Cacao 70 since their specialization is chocolate, oh boy was I wrong. I think I was disappointed because I got my hopes high for no reason and I was expecting more. In the restaurant, I had traditional ancient, extra guimauves, gal robuste, extra patates, and desert du jour. They charged me for marshmallows, that's pretty much what I found hilarious and then they charged my friend for maple syrup. Life isn't that hard, is it? Also, they had a free desert of the day, that was the highlight of my breakfast.
Tip: If I don't finish my food, there is a slight chance I didn't like the food, it was too much or I am full. In the case of Juliette & chocolate, it was too much. And then when I saw my bill, I realized it was one of the most expensive breakfast I had eaten in my entire life. I think the most expensive was at the Wynn hotel, big ups to Wynn.
