ROAD TRIP TO QUEBEC CITY

Kate ParrishComment

quebec city is a little frenchy town 2 hours north of montreal. it's crazy, not that many people speak english or choose not too, but it's to the charm of the city. our drive in was beautiful – streets were covered in yellow flowers, endless cotton fields, and plenty of cows, goats and horses. some highlights from our time spent here include:

our cozy little airbnb, wandering the streets and finding gems around every corner {the oldest epicerie in QC}, a hilarious dance party at bar la cuisine, pizza lunch at nina pizza napolitaine, and an incredible dinner that we'll remember for a lifetime at l'affaire est ketchup. It was one of the best and most unique dining experiences we've had.

 

^^ one of the only photos we got at ketchup – this place was special because it truly felt like you were in someone's home (look at the stove!!) – our bar seats gave us the perfect view of these two quebec chefs whipping up masterpieces. the owner translated the whole menu to us, and our food left us nearly licking our plates clean. i even loved the sweetbreads and that dish is usually way too scary.
