If there’s one certainty in this city, it’s the fact that there are as many food bloggers as there are restaurants that specialize in brunch.  In the past, I’ve made some steps to get to know the players in both those categories, but not enough to really say that I know much.  Well, a stop at a restaurant boutique known as Le Cartet would hopefully remedy all that.

Over the course of the last 4 years, I’ve been on approximately 350 different restaurant visits.  Now, the quality of the majority of those places won’t be enough to leave anyone in awe, but that’s how the cookie crumbled.  With the majority of those places being home to my past burgers, there was always one thought that went through my head.  A lot of those places had better things on the menu than burgers and I never had the chance to try them.  Well, I had the chance to do just that when I made a return visit to Ben & Florentine.

In Montreal, there is a list of select restaurants that have the entire world buzzing.  That list is as short as can be and you have to be really good to be on it.  After being featured on television, printing its own cookbook, and expanding its reach to touch our province’s culture, this restaurant is probably the best one in the entire city.  Of course, the restaurant I’m talking about is aptly named Au Pied de Cochon.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve all been in the midst of a very tense argument about the state of things in this province.  While that has been a very negative and nasty situation, we still have to remember why this province is still the best place to live in the entire world.  One of the key experiences to have when living in Quebec is to go to a cabane à sucre.  My favorite area for the traditional experience is in Mont-Saint-Grégoire.  The place for that is Au Toit Rouge.

Recently, I was given an invitation to a restaurant to try something I haven’t done in almost 20 years, brunch.  Brunch is not something that I will go out of my way to go get, though it’s something that I’ve been thinking more and more about over the last few years.  Well, there was no better time than the present to cross that bridge than at Café Grand in an area of the island of Montreal known affectively as N.D.G.

If you were at Osheaga recently, you probably saw a stand with a huge crowd around it.  Well, that crowd were all patiently waiting for something called Kono Pizza.  Now, I’m not an Osheaga person myself, so I only got word of the buzz days later through Twitter and the community of food writers I follow.

I had no idea I was coming here until a colleague announced they wanted to come here. I like ped days because it gives us teachers the chance to relax and mingle while trying some of the best food in the Greater Montreal Area. The story goes as follows, I enter the staff room and a teacher tells me that we’re going to Elio’s. Apparently, one of the others teachers used to work here and says the pizza was awesome. My only inquiry about Elio’s was whether or not there was bacon. So, after the ped day was done, we caravanned down to this restaurant. After almost losing one of our colleagues, we were ready to dine.

Pizza w/Pepperoni, Sausage, and Bacon

Tried:  March 23, 2011

This pizza contains pepperoni, sausage, cheese, and bacon.

I am a huge pizza fan. Years of watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles helped cement that. For the last few years, I’ve been eating sub-par pizza and I wanted to get out of that. This was my chance to see what else there was out there. The first thing I noticed is that this pizza was extremely hot. It burned the roof of my mouth. I felt that for days. The taste was fine but the burning sensation really affected me throughout the meal. The one aspect of the pizza I could’ve done without was the sausage. I am not a big sausage person. If they offered a bacon only pizza, I would’ve been on that. For the size, this pizza was could enough for the one person who ordered it. I made sure to finish every morsel.
