Habitez-vous a Montreal!? Ca c'est le restaurant pour vous!

Do you live in Montreal? If so, this is the restaurant for you!

AU PIED DE COCHON or in English "The Pig's Foot" is a restaurant that when entering you just think "so french!" If you like good meat that's well prepared along with a little French love this is the spot to go. The restaurant is jam-packed six nights a week and is a local favourite, now quite well-known in the city. I first went there about ten years ago when it first opened. I was in Montreal with my family and we had been wandering for too long looking for a great place to eat, until we stumbled upon this one. The wood tables and outdoor cobblestone street gives the restaurant a cozy and cabin like feel. The food is delicious, warm and comforting. Perfect in the winter but delicious at any point in the year. Not only are they known for their meat, especially pork but their seafood is equally tasty.

Here are a few of their menu items!

Duck Carpaccio
Tomato a Tartlet
Apple Fois Gras
Pigs Head for 2
Duck in a Can
Confit Lamb Shank
Zucchini Blossoms
Fois Gras Poutine

As you can see, the menu items here are definitely outside the box. Pushing the boundaries to create wonderfully delicious food, which has it's own feel and taste!

I recommend trying this place if you can - but by this point I think reservations are a must!
