For a true Canadian start to your day, start off by heading to the closest Tim Hortons for double-double coffee and a donut, or maybe a box of its famed Timbits. Montréal is known for its famous smoked meat sandwiches and slightly sweet wood-fired bagels. With its diverse population, the city is also home to great Portuguese, Vietnamese, and Haitian eateries, among many other cuisines. For a local classic, Dic Ann's is a popular Montréal-area burger chain. Don't let the thin burger fool you, as it's all about the spicy sauce.
Tourtière is a traditional hearty meat pie with many variations found throughout the province, while traditional French crepes come in savory and dessert versions. French fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds combine in the famous French-Canadian poutine, where the curds squeak when you eat them. Au Pied de Cochon even offers a foie gras version of poutine. Of course, a visit to Québec wouldn't be complete without sampling its delectable maple syrup, preferably on-site at a traditional cabane à sucre (sugar shack).
