How is your week going so far?
Just 4 more short days 'til Christmas, can you believe it?
Today I thought I'd share with you some more pics from our trip to Quebec City.
Dusted in snow, decked out with lights, Christmas trees and greenery, it was absolutely magical!
Doesn't the restaurant below look straight out of a fairy tale?
Dating from 1675, it was once a former home, which is the oldest in the province, and is considered one of the best restaurants in all of Quebec.
I just loved the quaint cobblestone streets and old buildings.
Notre Dame cathedral is quite grand and feels as if it should be in Europe..
The 1640 Restaurant, below, was our favorite of this trip! As a matter of fact, we ate their 3 times on this visit!
It's foundation dates to 1640, thus the name.
The staff was super friendly, and the food was amazing!
A view of the interior.
We enjoyed breakfast there twice.
Wow, those French Canadians sure know how to eat!
Huge and hearty portions, perhaps fitting for a lumberjack:)
Our waiter that morning was so nice, helping me with my French. He was such a good sport to pose for a photo with moi!
Our best dinner was also there. My photo of the beautifully presented goat cheese salad, below doesn't really do it justice. They served it on a large slate (super cool, I thought!), and garnished it with candied pecans and a poached sweet pear..
Hubby and I both had the tagliatelle pasta with salmon and spinach. It was amazing!
I usually am not a fan of creme brulee, but I must say I loved their maple creme brulee!
Of course, maple syrup is king in Canada, and is featured in one form or another in many of their dishes.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll try and squeeze one more post in before Christmas, to share a bit more decor around our home!
