{Travel Fix} Vacation Food No. 1

For us, travel means lots of food.  We love to taste the local food favorites everywhere we go.  So of course being in NY it was all about the pizza.

I ate so many slices of pizza that I started to bleed sauce.




These were our first slices of the trip. 
Just consider this picture "The Jump Off"



Once in Montreal my cousin Tamara, invited all of us to her house for a BBQ.  It was delish.
She had some great salads including one that was Mango with a touch of habanero pepper, cilantro and garlic.  It was so refreshing.


Of course while in Montreal, I had to get a poutine and a steamie.
If you're not familiar a poutine is french fries topped with gravy and cheese curds and a steamie is a hot dog on a steamed bun topped with mustard, cabbage and sometimes relish.
Poutine and Steamie from The Pool Room.


And no trip to Montreal is complete without a bite of a smoked meat sandwich.
We chose to have ours at the famous Dunn's.


Can you tell I enjoyed it?

Washed it down with a tall glass of lemon water.

French is the primary language of Quebec.
Check out the KFC.
PFK - Poulet Frit du Kentucky
LOL!
For the record, we didn't eat here.
Another favorite of my family is The Curry House in Cote des Neige.

We had to have Jamaican Patties as an appie.
Flaky and delish.

The Chicken Curry Roti's are to die for. 
Nothing beats a homemade roti skin.
The hubs and I shared one...

as well as a plate of Stewed Chicken with Rice, mango, fried plantain and a salad.
my oh my!


Followed by lots of water and a Pink Ting.
(grapefruit soda)

Our next food adventure took us to my Pop's childhood favorite, New Systems.
Of course my camera battery died just as our food arrived. 
But as a family we ordered a feast of pizza, poutine, baked chicken, sub sandwich and greek souvlaki.


We didn't really eat much breakfast food, mostly bagels and toast from our hotel.  The one chance we did get out for breakfast we chose to dine at Tutti Frutti, just a block away from our room.
We ordered your typical breakfast favorites,
eggs, toast, waffles, pancakes, and breakfast potatoes.
It was a big spread and really good. 



Yum, Yum!
