My first vacation stop started in this town called Montreal. This time is going to be my third visits, but still love it. Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec, the second-largest city in Canada and the fifteenth largest in North America. French is the city's official language and is also the language spoken at home, followed by English. I felt in love with the city, the people, and especially the food. And I would totally live here if I have the opportunity.

Let's start the vacation with some french cruise ...
(and how I gained 15 pounds in 2 weeks)

Address: 740 william . Montréal . H3C 1P1 . T 514 397 7737 . F 514 397 8760

The Kitchen Is Open: Monday to Friday, from 11:30 a.m. to midnight Saturday, from 5:30 p.m. to midnight | Sunday, from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. 

The Concept: In addition to entertaining, contemporary cuisine, Le Local restaurant offers a unique urban concept. Located at the heart of Old Montreal, in a building that still resonates with echoes of the past, the restaurant boasts a spectacularly large dining room and terraces which can seat up to 160 people. An interesting blend of rustic and modern, the stunning decor combines concrete, steel, brick and glass to breathtaking effect. Here is the link to the Menu

 Pierre (My BEST BEST "GIRLFRIEND") and I ate at "Le LocaL"

The waitresses/waiters walked around with a basket of breads to greet the guests

Salmon Tartar With Truffle Oil and Lime Juice 

Best Salmon TARTAR EVER! The truffle oil really made the taste to pop out.
 Too bad I can't eat this everyday :(

Cheese ravioli, duck confit, shiitake and arugula
Also, the best DUCK RAVIOLI that I've even eaten ...

Kooyong Massale Pinot Noir : Can't forget about the wine for our main course
Sea Salt: The most purified sea salt that I've have ever experienced at a restaurant

Cote de Boeuf

The meat was tender with pieces of fat
The salad was so delightful 
And the sauce was to die for

This dish was humongous -- it can easily fed 5 people

The french knows it all! Even the smashed potatoes are better

Large lobster roll, white bread with cheese curd, lobster “des Iles” with mayonnaise, 
Iceberg lettuce, grilled red pepper, fries and/or salad  with Extra Poutine 

The lobsters were embedded in the bread! I was not too fond with the bread--not crunchy
and more on a harder side-- but the abundant amount of lobsters made up for the lost

Yummy Poutine!!! A little greasy and fat, but it was worth the extra calories

And for dessert ...

Yummm ...

Ice cream popsicle were very refreshing after all of those fatty meat!

Thank you Philip (left) and Pierre (right) for showing me around and taking me to delicious dine-ins
