Street food vendors are illegal in the city of Montreal [hoping that will change one day] so when there’s a festival, a sidewalk sale or any other special event in the city, we take advantage of the street food available. On the positive side, we really appreciate them when they’re here.

This year at the Just for Laughs festival, we got to enjoy the Food Souk {an Arab word for marketplace} on St Catherine street between St-Urbain and Place des Arts. Though I didn’t (and couldn’t) taste everything on the diverse menus, I did try the lobster roll, pimento feta taco, Indian honey donuts, Myriade’s coffee and some homemade popsicles (not all in one visit, I like to eat but I’m tiny). You can find me on Instagram to see some of my iPhone photos of the food (tomorrow_emily) or click here. The Just for Laughs festival ended last Saturday but I am already looking forward to next year – mostly for the food.

I will be posting some photos of the Just for Laughs shows in the next post.



Just a few more photos of my recent trip to Chicago. Other than playing tourist by visiting the pier and the architectural tour, we spent most of the weekend talking, eating and drinking. We visited the Randolph Market, some great restaurants whose names I’ve forgotten and just took it easy walking around the city with our own personal tour guide.

I can’t wait to visit Chicago again, if only to try every restaurant and bar the city has to offer. I am starving just looking at the above food photos.
