Leaving Mile End we headed down rue St-Urbain to rue Rachel and entered Parc du Mont-Royal through Parc Jeanne-Mance and past Monument à Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier. We thought we may as well walk up the paths a bit since we were there! So off we went. There were a lot of people walking and running. We made it up as far as Chalet du Mont-Royal and took in the extraordinary view from the Kondiaronk Belvedere. It was almost dark as we made our way down rue Peel towards our chosen dinner destination: Chinatown.

A few weeks earlier and this view must have been ablaze in red, orange and yellow leaves.

Chalet du Mont-Royal

That view! I bet it’s magical at all times of the year.

Found a really sweet little place for dinner which served Hong Kong-style delicious food. I had vegetable chow mein and GJ had a beef hot pot.
