And you thought I only ate meat-centric dishes in Montreal, didn't you? I think not. I also had dessert. Meat-free dessert.
But, my favorite had to be the Portuguese Egg Tart that I tried in Old Town Montreal at a sun-filled cafe called Cantinho de Lisboa. These beauties, pictured above, were all at once buttery, flaky goodness, and rich, custardy, vanilla-scented decadence. In fact, they may have just kicked my all-time favorite Portuguese Egg Tarts in New York's Flushing Chinatown to the curb...
That said, I do have to admit that New Flushing Bakery knows what it's doing. And, that "buy three, get one free" deal most definitely makes them one of the best dessert bargains in New York. Besides, the 7 train has yet to make it to Montreal.
That sounds like a vacation plan in the making for 2015. Who's with me?
