Montreal: Food, Fun and Shopping

Montreal continues to intrigue me. This little slice of Europe in North America seems to beckon from so many different travel magazines I crack open. This month, it’s Budget Travel.

As a sign of the times, Budget Travel turns to a couple of local Montreal bloggers to introduce its readers to all the best that this city has to offer, broken conveniently down to three categories: Shop, Play, Eat.

While the shopping and playing categories certainly shouldn’t be overlooked, the article hones in on that which Montreal is most known for: its restaurants. In fact, My Montreal Is Better Than Yours, is written by two bloggers who run the epicurean-focused site, Because, as they explain, Montreal’s culinary scene is indeed an endless banquet of foodie delight.

The best part about all of this is that the article appeared in Budget Travel; that means that the suggestions on where to dine won’t break the old pocketbook. And, the fact that I won’t have to travel all the way to Europe to experience some old world ambiance along with my meal should help matters as well.

Now, all I have to do is get myself there. In the meantime, I’ll be stashing this article away in my Montreal To Do file.
