Every city has their fine dining options and the restaurants that pattern themselves after that formula.  These days, you don’t have to put on a tie to eat at these places and that opens up a world of possibilities for people like me.  The place that you definitely need to keep an eye on in the city of Ottawa is Absinthe Cafe.

A rebel is a person who doesn’t follow the rules, mostly because they think that they know better.  In the realm of food, a rebel is one that does things in a way that no one ever thinks of.  In this city, there’s a place that uses that word of its name and they are known as Rebel Brasserie Urbaine.

Over the last four years, there are two things that have become a large part of my daily life, Ville Saint-Laurent and Greek food.  They are two things that I didn’t seek out, but they entered my life and became important parts of it.  When you combine both of them, you get a visit to Elounda.

With Easter weekend now behind us, we realize that every now and again, a break is needed.  This long weekend brought something that I wasn’t really expecting, another burger in the search and one that would take place in my very own stomping grounds of Brossard.  With this being the first burger in Brossard in almost a year, the candidate this time around was La Station des Sports.

With the sixth edition of Happening Gourmand now a thing of the past, it’s time to take a look at the fourth and final place on my itinerary for this year.  Located right next to the Palais des Congres, Suite 701 has the distinction of being the place I was looking the most forward to.  As I think of my other 3 restaurant visits during the event, I could only wonder if Suite 701 would live up.

Happening Gourmand 2013 gives a chance for every Montrealer set foot in restaurants that they would not normally be able to afford.  One of the newcomers in this year’s line-up is a place that people are talking about, Bevo Pizza.  Their take on Italian cuisine and pizza is surely something that could no longer be ignored.

In Montreal, the search for brunch places is one that probably has just as much interest as anything I can ever search for myself.  What surprises me the most is the number of these brunch specialists that offer something that interests me more, the burger.  Just off The Main, on Beaubien, lies a small place known as Le Vieux Vélo.

This summer, I have a list of 4 non-burger places I have to try.  Café Pavé is one of those places.  Located in a very crowded culinary part of Montreal, it’s a relatively new presence in the city.  Boasting a wide variety of sandwiches on its menu, it creates a new option for those busy workers on the go in the midst of the financial district.

The one thing I’ve stated time and time again was my disappointment with potential Burger Search locations in the eastern part of the island of Montreal.  After 142 burgers, I’ve only really found 1 real burger that was worthy enough to join all the others that came before it.  The burger at Hawgs Deli was another attempt to find a place in the east that would be worth the long trek.  Hawgs has a lot going against it, but it does have a lot helping it as well.

On this particular week, I’ve been fighting my first illness of 2012.  The fact that I was under the weather for the better part of the week really affected things here at the GBS.  I put off the burger I was planning to do this week.  There was one thing that I couldn’t put off, a reservation for another stop at Happening Gourmand.  So, I was undertaking a whole demanding regimen of various medications, some normal and others, very much Chinese.  By the time this evening rolled around, I was very much ready to enjoy something that I was really looking forward to.
