Where I Go Out

At My Venues

$$, Bakery, Sandwiches, Old Montreal
"Dyan and Eric are very dedicated to what they do and it's reflected in their food. They’ve gotten too busy to do it anymore, but they used to make bread for restaurants in Montreal, and it was the best bread in town. Back in the day, I opened a restaurant called Tube near Olive et Gourmando. Because I was working 15-hour shifts, I would stop in every morning for coffee and granola to start my day off strong. The granola and fruit is always simple, delicious, and perfectly done."
$$, Bakery, Sandwiches, Old Montreal
"O&G makes fantastic sandwiches. I actually had to cut myself off from going multiple times a week! My favourite sandwich there is one of their seasonal sandwiches called the Gustavo. It has grilled chicken breast, sautéed red onions, and portobello mushrooms deglazed with balsamic vinegar and melted Cheddar cheese. Their Cubano is also awesome. I order that when the Gustavo is on hiatus!"
watermelon caprese salad
$$, Bakery, Sandwiches, Old Montreal
"So so proud of the beautiful tomato, watermelon caprese-inspired salad that @dyansolomon and I created for @olive_et_gourmando this summer! (Let’s be real here, it was 10% me saying “I want to do a tomato watermelon salad” and 90% Dy working her magic and showing me how it’s done) Beautiful local heirloom tomatoes, watermelon, mozzarella di buffala, red onion, breadcrumbs, basil, and good quality olive oil glugged all over it! This week was hard at O+G, but things like this beautiful plate make it feel like all the running, sweating, tears, and stress a little less traumatizing. 😂😂😂 😭😭😭#somethingaboutcheflife #notalwaysglamorous #yum #eatrealfood #localveggies #summerproduce"
