Archives for posts with tag: Montreal Chinatown

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.

Looking back towards Parc Jeanne-Mance.

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

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.

For our first full day in Montréal, we met up with some friends who were visiting from Toronto. We enjoyed some yummy crêpes in Vieux-Montréal at a café called Muru, wandered around in Chinatown, explored  Musée des Beaux-Arts (which is free for the permanent exhibits) and then left our friends and had delicious salads for dinner at M Café.

Pretty little crêpe café in Vieux-Montréal: Muru.

Montréal pigeons look different from Victoria pigeons.

Macaroons in the display case at M Café. Mmmmmm.
