Friends, who here feels like an awesome plate of macaroni and cheese? All of us? Yeah, all of us, definitely. Mac and cheese is one of those food that's always appropriate, always delicious, and always exactly what you need to be eating.
And if you're a fan of this dish - and/or a fan of Montreal food festivals - then I've got some great news for you. There is going to be a whole entire week dedicated to the world's best comfort food. Right here in Montreal. Yes, that's right, friends: A Mac & Cheese week.
Created by the team behind Le Cheese, this is Montreal's second annual Mac & Cheese Week. Pretty much, it's a celebration of everything that's good in the world (AKA a hot, delicious plate of macaroni and cheese), and features some super awesome restaurants coming together for the betterment of mankind. (AKA, to serve up some hot, delicious plates of macaroni and cheese, for prices ranging between $12-$20).
The event is going to take place from March 7 - 13, 2016, but don't feel too bad if you won't be in Montreal for that week. Mac & Cheese Week 2016 is taking place simultaneously in Toronto and Quebec City, too, proving once again that mac n' cheese is basically the dish that unifies us all.
Curious as to which restaurants are participating in Montreal's Mac & Cheese Week this year? Well, don't be, friends, because I've got all your answers right here. The list of restaurants participating in Montreal's 2016 Mac & Cheese Week includes:
Les Enfants Terribles - Laval, Mile End, Nuns Island
Weinstein & Gavino's
Le Robin Square
Olive & Gourmando
If this sounds like the type of thing you can get behind (and let's be honest, it does), you can check out their Facebook event, website, or Instagram for more information.
To start off, the same night MTL Blog interviewed her, Bouchard had dinner with friends at Grinder and, according to her Instagram stories, it looked like she really enjoyed herself.
Besides that, Bouchard told us she's a fan of everything at Orange Julep. "I go to Orange Julep for poutines and the juice, which is so good," she told us. The athlete also likes going to Farsides, Deville Dinerbar, and Beauty's.
Her last place was a little too exclusive for any of us to get into though: her grandma's house. But you may be able to spot her at any of the other mentioned restaurants whenever she comes back to visit from Florida!
Imagine a giant fish bowl... now fill it up to the brim with your favourite drink. Maybe throw some candy in there. Maybe toss an upside down beer into the mix. Whatever you do it it, it'll be awesome.
One Montreal spot does these fishbowl cocktails so, so right: Deville Dinerbar (1425 Stanley St). Behold, friends. Your new favourite drink.
