After a three hour hike up, around, and back down Mont Royal, I was starving! Danica loves hiking, but I need to remember to stay away from anything with mount, mont or mountain in it; it’s not good!
There was a silver lining in that I got to brunch at Lawrence. Hipsters effortlessly jumping between French and English reminds me of how bilingual I am not. However the content of their conversation was hopelessly dorky. Grafitti washed off a business is not cool, it’s irritating.
Anyway, deviled beef kidneys, arugula and a cognac meat sauce help you forget about how many times somebody has graffitied your delivery trucks. Arugula and offal seems to be the go to set here in Montreal; the night before I had lamb hearts with arugula, who knew?
Lemon curd donuts, should be eaten delicately or they explode curd everywhere. Thank you Danica for demonstrating how not to do it.
A celery root and oyster mushroom casserole finished out our wonderful post mountain hike.
