Montréal, Québec Part 1: China Town, Old Port, Old Montréal

Rich & I took a short trip to Montréal during my holiday from work and to be honest, we went to eat and pig out at their local vegan/vegetarian restaurants as well as some not-so veggie places. We took the train there, enjoyed naps and movies on the way there and stayed at an Airbnb which was located in the heart of downtown, 5 minutes from the Metro (Berri-Uqam) and minutes from the places we wanted to eat at. It was perfect!

Included was breakfast (baked goods, bread, Poptarts etc), Nespresso/tea, fresh fruit and full access to the kitchen
Notes and letters from previous guests

We arrived at our Airbnb just past 3pm and after settling in, took a walk around Chinatown, where we walked past a bakery where the smells of fresh baked bread and sweets wafted through the air. I had to go in, even if it was "just to browse"...which we all knew was a total lie.

Chinatown at sundown
Chinese Pineapple Bun w/ coconut filling was the perfect breakfast the next morning

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
