Want to try Québec Cuisine?
I've got some ideas for you!
First of all: what is traditional Quebec food? Here are some examples:
The World's famous Poutine
Poutine is the unofficial national dish of Québec. It is a meal consisting of French fries, fresh cheese curds and topped with hot ''mysterious'' gravy. Even if many restaurants have their own fancy version of it, poutine will always be the ultimate comfort food.
Baked beans (fèves au lard)
Meat pie (pâté à la viande)
Just like baked beans, meat pie is very common in a traditional breakfast or brunch.
Sugar pie (tarte au sucre)
A pie filled with a mixture of cream, flour, egg, and brown sugar, which is sometimes replaced with maple syrup. My favourite sugar pie in Old-Quebec is at Café Chez Temporel with one of their delicious coffees.
Pea soup (soupe aux pois)
Montreal-style smoked meat
Montreal-style smoked meat or just ''smoked meat'' is a specialty from the largest city in the province. It comes in the form of an are big enormous sandwiches made of seasoned beef briskets. The brisket is allowed to absorb the flavours overmarinated for a week, and is then hot smoked to cook through, and finally steamed to completion. Montreal smoked meat is typically served in the form of aon light -rye bread sandwich with and yellow mustard. My favourite place in Quebec City? Phil's Smoked Meat in the St-Roch district.
Where can I try this delicious food? Here are my picks!
Buffet de l'Antiquaire
Located on St.Paul Sstreet in the Old Port district, this tiny restaurant has a real local
atmosphere. Among their specialties are typical "Québécois" breakfasts complete with baked beans and home-made jams. .The Buffet de l'Antiquaire offers fine food at reasonable prices.
Grand-ma's comfort food in a funky decor. Here, you can have the success of the past re-visited. Also, go if you want a great cocktail after the tour!
Le Snack-Bar St-Jean
This is my favorite place for poutine. It has a local snack bar atmosphere
and, of course, great poutine. Be careful though: the servings are HUGE, so only take
the small or regular size!
