Montréal | Marché Jean-Talon, Olivier Potier, Le Gros Jambon

Three edible stops on a very fun Montreal weekend with April ^-^

I. Le Gros Jambon

A “diner” in Old Montréal…

…where mac and cheese is topped with duck confit…

…and the poutine, rich with truffled gravy with crisp fries, is so good…

…we each had to get our own. One large, one small.

II. Pâtisserie Olivier Potier

…on Sherbrooke Street, just a few blocks from the Ritz. We couldn’t decide on just one treat, so shared a bunch.

Flaky croissants aux amandes…

…and sugar-dusted gaufres hot from the iron. With chantilly, strawberry jam…

…and whipped butter.

Chaussons aux pommes…

…the buttery pastry baked golden and stuffed with apples.

And because it was April’s birthday, a perfect St. Honoré of lychee et framboise.

(Remember the

Rose-Framboise version

from Ladurée?)

III. Marché Jean-Talon

Straight to 

La Moutonnière

…for a wedge of oozy sheep’s milk cheese.

Found sesame saratele crackers…

…to smother, and smother. Look at that texture!

Next, porc effiloché tacos…

…with a smear of puréed black beans tucked under the pulled pork. Pickled onions and hot sauce to finish.

For dessert, April had oysters from Poissonnerie Aqua Mare…

…one of each.

And I went with salted caramel gelato at Havre aux Glaces.

No room for maple syrup on ice, but that just means we’ll have to make a return trip.

And a bonus! Dinner at Kitchen Galerie Poisson. Don and I visited
