Canuck Foodie's Pleasure

If it's food and I find it, I'll post it here. Along with a few reviews and recipes that I make.

Well where has the time gone?

by Dean Bloodworth on Friday, December 06, 2013 3:34 PM

I have been busier than a cat's tail in a room full of rockin' chairs.  That's no excuse, but it's what I have to live with.  Let's see what has happened since our last encounter with the culinary world within the borders of Canada.

 

There has been a trip to BC and a stop at the Jaffray Pub.  We've also been to State and Main in Chinook mall in Calgary.  A couple trips to Earls at 130th Ave in Calgary and too many others to mention.  I've been remiss in some of the picture taking, but there are some and I'll hope to get them out of my phone and onto the pages of canuckfoodie.com soon.

Bernie and the Boys Bistro - Drumheller Alberta

by Dean Bloodworth on Sunday, September 01, 2013 3:08 PM
Yesterday we decided to drive out to Drumheller and visit Bernie and The Boys Bistro.  After watching it on You Gotta Eat Here, we thought a nice drive out there followed by a late lunch or  early dinner would be nice.  It is about a 2 hour drive from our place, so it's not something we were taking lightly.

After the long drive, we arrived at our destination.  We parked and walked up to the restaurant.  There was a sign on the door saying that they were not taking any new orders until 4pm!  We found that surprising so we went inside.  One of the servers was walking around serving people and looked our way a couple times, but never come over.  Finally I decided to walk over and talk to the lady at the cash register.

 

She said to me that the kitchen was so backed up that they were not taking orders until 4pm.  I looked at my watch and it was 2:45pm.  Over an hour before you take another order?  Seriously?  There are only...

Cafe'-boulangerie Paillard

by Dean Bloodworth on Thursday, August 08, 2013 6:30 AM
This morning we started the day in Old Quebec City at the Cafe-boulangerie Paillard.  We wanted something different.  Something more Quebecois and we found it at this quaint little cafe.  The early morning rain produced some hardship for the old building as there were several buckets set around the cafe catching water leaking from the roof.  This didn't stop us from joining the line-up at the counter to order our food.

 

My eyes searched the food counter looking at all the great pastries when they fell upon nirvana.  A Fougasse bun with lardons (bacon) and cheese.  Oh yeah, this was a must have for this bacon loving individual.  The bread was dense with cheese and bacon and definitely provided a really good meal for breakfast.  Couple that with a great cup of coffee and I was set for the morning.

Deville Dinerbar

by Dean Bloodworth on Thursday, August 08, 2013 2:00 AM
After our drive back to Montreal, we stopped at Deville Dinerbar for lunch.  Taylor did some research and really liked the menu and it was well reviewed on tripadvisor.com, so we figured we'd give it a try.

We started with the Kopanisti Dip and Chips.  The dip is a Mediterranean red pepper cheese dip that came with truffle parmesan chips.  These were very tasty, and the potato chips were warm, so you know they were fresh made.



 

Knowing Taylor like we do we knew she was heading for the burger.  The Deville Burger to be exact.  What a delicious looking burger.  Cheddar cheese, lettuce, pickles, caramelized onions, tomato the Dinerbar signature dressing all on a brioche bun made for one mouth watering burger.  I must...

Que Sera Sera at the Marriott Quebec City Downtown

by Dean Bloodworth on Wednesday, August 07, 2013 6:30 PM
Dinner was a little late today after having a terrific lunch at La Piazzaio.  We were all tired from up early for work on Tuesday, fly the red eye to Montreal then driving 2 hours to Quebec City, we decided to stick close to the hotel for dinner.  If fact, we ate at the hotel.  The Marriott Quebec City Downtown at the Que Sera Sera Restaurant.

 

Quebec is known for the Poutine and this would be or first official Quebec Poutine.  Taylor and I ordered a chicken club sandwich and Cherie ordered the Poutine.

To start things off, we ordered their home made potato chips with onion dip.  The chips were fairly bland.  No seasoning added after they came out of the fryer.  Not sure when they came out of the fryer as they were cold.  Crispy, but cold.
