Adventures in Québec

Last weekend, I was in Québec city for Festival d’été. This year, I did more exploring of the city and surrounding areas.

On Saturday, I visited J.A Moisan, North America’s oldest grocery store.

It looked like it hasn’t changed too much over the years and stocked a lot of specialty products. I ended up getting some sodas to try.

 

I also had the privilege of going on the Island of Orleans food and drink tour. It was a 3 hour tour where we were taken to the beautiful island of Orleans that was a different world only 15 minutes away from the city. The vegetation there was lush and we sampled wines, ciders, sweets and jarred things. It was a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of a city.

Burgers @ Les Trois Garçons

During my Sunday in Quebec City, I stopped by a local burgery (is that a word?) named Les Trois Garçons for lunch. I ordered a burger called Les Charlevoix with double AAA ground beef paties, 1608 and Hercule cheese from Charlevoix, fried and carmelized onions, artisanal bacon and a bourbon BBQ sauce which was so tasty. This burger was perfect and juicy.

I had a drink called The Canadian and it was kind of like an old fashioned with a hint of maple syrup.

There were around 15 burgers on the menu but I only had time to try the one. Guess I’ll have to make it back to Quebec sometime!

Wandering in Old Québec

While I was in Quebec City for Festival d’été,  I used the Sunday morning for exploring the old city, especially Chateau Frontenac. Here are some photos taken during my journey:

I’m currently in Quebec for Festival D’été. It’s all sorts of magical. I’m going to spend the day time exploring the city, so I’ll get back at you with more blog posts tomorrow.

For now, you can enjoy this video of P!nk flying over the crowd.
