We visited a couple of different restaurants with our hosts while in Quebec. The first of these was in a small town on the outskirts of Quebec.
The restaurant was called Le Carnard Goulu and was unique in that it served only items containing duck meat.
I wasn’t sure about eating duck so I ordered the ‘Boulettes à Burger’ in the hope of getting something I would recognize. It turned out to be made from ground duck. Fooled me.
Susie had a dish that must have been good because she ate all of them. I have forgotten what our hosts told us what it was but if you check the picture above, the menu is on the blackboard out in front. It was one of those. Here is what it looked like.
The others ordered the dish below. I don’t know what it was, either.
The following evening, after our return to Montreal, we ate in one of the city’s restaurant traditions.
There was a line when we arrived but the food turned out to be worth the wait. It was pretty basic; bread, pastrami and a pickle with a side order of fries but we ate every crumb, mine smothered in a hot mustard.
I initially thought we were eating corned beef but it turned out to be what I think is corned beef’s first cousin, Pastrami.
