Montreal, just what was your game? Was it a test in restraint that I failed? Or perhaps it was bid to lure me to stay forever. The city egged me on to eat as much as possible within its easy-going neighborhoods, and I left few menus unturned following that quest.
Pretty much to me, Montreal was a giant smorgasbord. From Mont Royal to Old Town, a three-mile stretch which I walked -which I NEEDED to walk – I ate maybe every ten blocks. Something about the lovely French-Canadian city fueled my hunger. Which was fine. I had a two-week road trip ahead and this was the perfect place to stock up on extra calories.
Behold in pictures, many of my favorite meals, which if I remember, I ate all in one day. Or maybe it was two days stretched into one big eat-a-thon. It’s all a haze, but I’m certain I woke up on more than one occasion, hands sticky with maple syrup, a pomme frite stuck in my hair.

My efforts were quite valiant, I think, at eating as much as possible while in Montreal. The options for where to eat in Montreal are so varied and bountiful it’s tempting to ONLY eat, but I suggest throwing in some exercise if you can force yourself to. If only to make room for more potato croquettes.
