Mr. and I went on a week-long trip out east to Montreal and Toronto. In the next few weeks, you will be reading up a few eateries that we visited. Enjoy!

We arrived in Montreal right before dinner time, so obviously the first thing we did, after we checked into our hotel, was to find a place to eat.

You have the option of lean, regular or fatty; we opted for the regular option to get a good balance of lean and fatty meat.
