Wondering what to do on a cold March day?!
Visit Little Italy and Le Marché Jean-Talon! Foodies, shoppers and cultural thrill-seekers should certainly take the metro (blue line De Castelneau) out to St-Laurent street (near Ste-Zotique) and visit this cultural district. Even if you are on a budget, there are many affordable eats within the market itself or along St-Laurent Street.
These are some of my favourite things to do with my mom (Linda) when we have some time off. Remember, that everyone is happier and healthier on a full stomach!
1. Visit Milano’s: This is a traditional Italian grocery store with excellent an selection of cold cuts, cheeses, pastas, fruits and vegetables. I always buy my breakfast biscotti here.
2. Have an espresso at Caffè Epoca: You can’t go wrong by having a caffeine break! Remember, Italians usually have cappuccinos for breakfast–so don’t be surprised if the barista wonders why you want a cappuccino at 4pm. (Lol)
3. Grab a Zeppola at La Cornetteria.
Zeppole are delicious…I will provide a photo of one on my next visit.
4. Support our Portuguese cousins, after all, all Mediterranean cuisine is similar. Douro restaurant has AMAZING paella and guess what! They even have amazing prosciutto!
5. Dream about moto’s and Vespa’s!
6. Visit Jean-Talon Market to gather some fresh Québec produce!
