Liquid Motivation in Quebec City

Thank you, dear reader, for making our time in Quebec City extra flavorful. How did you do this you might ask? We used some of the ad revenue to splurge on a few culinary treats on a two day trip to our favorite city in N America, Quebec City, while we were in Montreal visiting family.

We started with a Belgian beer selection of Rochefort 8, Chimay Bleue and Gulden Draak at the fabulous Ste-Alexandre Pub. Great staff who know their own huge beer selection. Not cheap and so we were particularly happy to be able to use "blog money" for this one.

Similarly, we have not had a lot of chance to eat out at nice restaurants in French Polynesia. Even "inexpensive" restaurants are quite expensive there and so we enjoyed immeasurably our romantic dinner at St Malo in which we celebrated a long and delicious New Years Eve dinner a little late so we could be together.

Finally, it wouldn't be Quebec without poutine. Fresh fries made from whole potatoes instead of potato product, fresh cheese curds that squeak between your teeth and a delicious mild gravy on top. Although it is often a late night post-bar tradition, we went straight to a cheese maker (Lemairie) for the freshest cheese possible. After this enormous meal we still managed to buy a bag of cheese curds to take back with us. Oh my.

Thank you readers! And extra big thank you for the people who have been making an effort to funnel their normal Amazon purchases through our affiliate link.

More on what we did with *that* money later.

  1. QC is wonderful.

    I am VERY impressed you didn't squeak in any comments about about how COLD it is (-23 deg C)!

  4. Ha! It *was* but we had borrowed clothes and it was mostly a nice sunny windless cold. I love visiting winter particularly when I go home to FP.
