Moment For Life

Frite Alors: Various Locations
Far Right: L'eau à la Bush (steak, onions, mushrooms)
Far Left: La Frite Alors!(green peppers, mushrooms, onions & bacon)

A spontaneous roadtrip with the family and what's a road trip to Montreal without having Poutine? Reading an all-french menu was difficult at first but fail on my part once I found out they carry an English menu.

"I wish that I could have this moment for life", as Nicki Minaj would say. Having a poutine a day can be detrimental to my health but I would totally be satisfied. Just kidding. Maybe. Or not.

Bodega (Winterlicious)

Crispy Crab Cakes - with white wine, tomato Provencal sauce & tarragon caper cream

Seafood Bouillabaisse - with prawns, scallops & market fish in a fennel tomato broth, Emmenthal cheese & rouille

Warm Pecan Tart - with French Vanilla ice cream and Chocolate Sauce

Bodega with a few friends for Winterlicious. These were the dishes I ordered. Service was pretty dull. Quality of the dishes were average, though I partially blame myself for having all-you-can-eat sushi few hours before our Winterlicious reservations. I was craving sushi, give me a break.

Wish I had my camera for Rosewater - the atmosphere was impeccable and probably my best Licious' experience so far. Although I think it's time that I enjoy fine dining outside the Licious menus.

I say it many times but I really do need a DSLR. I need to make this happen.
