I mean, dat da vey I met her


Assortment of sashimi, sushi, hand rolls, etc.

Doughnut rolls

Kanda Sushi @ 7373 Boulevard Décarie, Montreal, QC

Every time I visit my sister in Montreal, we’d do a dinner date at Kanda, and yesterday her girl friend P also joined us. By the time we arrived at the resto, all three of us were starved, so appreciating our food became our first priority; never mind taking snapshots of the wide selection of dishes we’d ordered.

I think it’s safe to say that yesterday I had the best sushi of my life — allow me to place special emphasis on the super fresh hand rolls — and following what felt like a food and laughing coma, we finished off with dessert, which consisted of a few scoops of ice cream and doughnut rolls.

Apparently, one time my sister added a doughnut roll to her vanilla ice cream, and intrigued, the customers at the table next to her asked the waiter for the same dessert, which of course wasn’t on the menu. Until this day, she proudly claims that it’s her signature dessert.


La Miam: Steak haché, merguez, oignons, tomates et fromage suisse


La “3 Amigos”: Saucisse hot-dog, saucisse porc/boeuf et saucisse merguez

La Banquise @ 994 Rue Rachel Est, Montreal, QC

The biggest fail of my life, is being born in Montreal and never having had poutine there until today, in which case the sister suggested La Banquise.

With all the dangerous options on their menu, I undoubtedly had a challenging time choosing an option that spoke to my soul. Yet as with other aspects of life, one thing’s for sure when it comes to food: being adventurous is imperative; never mind playing it safe. So whereas the sister ordered La “3 Amigos,” I decided on La Miam.

Our orders deserved two thumbs up, hands-down. A tad salty due to the mishmash of assorted meats, but the fries were definitely the highlight — a perfect mix of soft and crispy. Topped with lots of ketchup? Excellent.

I finished both plates and was on the verge of popping a button. Even the neighbouring couple did a double-take, for I had two clean plates stacked on top of each other in front of me. They’ve witnessed nothing. I could’ve devoured a third.
