Food & Drinks, Quebec
Favorite thing: How can you not want to suck down a beer that is both called THE END OF THE WORLD and produced by a company named UNIBRAU. A UNI-BROW in the states is when there is no seperation between someones eye-brows. Think of Bert from Sesame street, looks like a caterpillar settled at the bridge of ones nose. The beer though, is reminiscent of Germany's best wheat beers. Littered throughout Quebecs drinking grounds, these are an easy find that will make even the not-so-frequent drinker even happy. I had one sitting Tarmac-side just before leaving, using my last CAN dollars.
When visiting this city you must try the mussels (if you're a seafood lover)with french fries. This dish is French in origin but the people of Quebec jazz it up a bit with their variations. I've had mussels steamed with white wine and garlic, done with a thai curry sauce, and steamed plain and then drizzled with butter and chopped up garlic. Most of the french fries I had there were the skinny kind. Deeeeelicious!
Fondest memory: Crepes and maple syrup! If you arrive at the right time of the year you can visit a maple sugar farm and taste fresh maple syrup over ice. I had great crepes in downtown Quebec City. Of course no trip is done without bringing home some real maple syrup. Almost every market and tourist shop will sell the syrup either in tin cans or in pretty bottles.
