Quebec City

Poutine And Pizza At Cafe L’Omelette

Do you seek out local dishes when you travel? We have found it interesting to sample the local cuisine, and it has introduced us to some new dishes. Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America and home to the earliest French settlement in the New World.  During our stay, we would find many French foods mixed into the menus of the eateries that we visited. Of course, one of the most famous dishes from Quebec originated right here in Canada. Our first dinner, at Cafe L'Omelette, allowed us a chance to dine on poutine and pizza in a [...]

Time Traveling in Quebec City – Musee Du Fort

Visiting a place like Quebec City allows plenty of opportunities to delve into history. With the first permanent trading post being built in 1608, it established a French outpost in the New World. After getting the lay of the land during our guided tour, now we were ready to do some time traveling in Quebec City. First up would be a visit to Musee Du Fort (The Fort Museum), where we would gain an understanding of how an English country has a distinctively French culture.  We want to thank Quebec Cite Tourism for hosting our visit. Rest assured that all opinions are our [...]

Visiting A Quebec Smoke House – Faite A L’OS

What do you get when you cross southern American BBQ with traditional Quebec cuisine? At Faite á l'os (French for "Made to the bone") we found it is some of the most well-executed barbecue we have ever experienced. When I spoke to people of our plans to visit a barbecue joint in Quebec City, most ended up with a puzzled look on their face. Being from Kansas City, BBQ sauce runs in our veins and we take this specific cuisine very seriously. After speaking with Emmanuel Cote, one of the owners of Faite á l'os, I quickly realized he has dedicated himself to [...]

Montmorency Falls – Learning The Land

Getting the lay of the land can be done in a variety of fashions. During our visit to Quebec City, we decided to forego a car rental and rely on our feet for most of the trip. Since the Old City district only covers about one-half of a square mile, walking from point-to-point is manageable. Seeing sights outside of this region required some additional planning. There was one main attraction, on the outskirts of the city, that we did not want to miss. Montmorency Falls, which sits just north of the city, offers its accessible nature for visitors to explore.  To make sure [...]

Checking All The Boxes – Hotel Manoir d’Auteuil

Traveling to a new destination can be filled with wonder, as well as some mystery. Determining your home away from home is one of the biggest decisions to be made. While price can certainly be one factor in the selection process, for us it's mostly about location, location, location! Our first Canadian trip needed to be a fantastic journey, so the lodging had to be a perfect fit. Hotel Manoir d'Auteuil (pronounced "doe toy") had us checking all the boxes for a wonderful visit. One of the first things we look for in lodging is boutique hotels. We have found that they offer [...]
