Anyone think La Belle Province would be successful expanding to Ontario?
Not sure if they have anything exciting except maybe more poutine compared to the usual fast food place in Ontario.
Yup! proper location and marketing and should be rewarding.
I don't think steamies are a thing in Ontario?
I know that a friend of mine who moved here from Ontario tried them and thinks they're disgusting, but maybe they just don't have them where he's from.
They are in my town. There is a place called Billy K's, that started off in Cornwall Ontario....they opened up a few other locations, and the one in my town survived. Steamies, toasties, good poutine....using dogs (Lesters) and buns (Pom) from Montreal. Identical to La Belle Province.
Yes it did!
Never understood the appeal of steamies. Toasted is way better for me.
Finally got the ''fixings'' to make proper dutch brownies
We have better places than that in Canada. When are you getting your dual US/CAN citizenship (or maybe triple, as I assume you still have your Swedish citizenship)?
Hot dang, I'm getting hungry for Boustan again.
I usually buy it fresh made from a grocery store but doing it yourself is obviously far better. So yummy.
I remember eating at one in New York about 7 years or so ago. Salt was very prevalent in both the burger and fries but still pretty tasty lol
Been there and would never go back. Very expensive and portions are minuscule to boot. You can find a lot of good smoked meat spots in a city renowned for it.
Eel tastes amazing. I always have it once a year, at Christmas time.
I know someone who made a fortune selling Montreal bagels and smoked meat in Ontario and then ended up having to sell his share to his partner, when things went awry.
That would be cool, having three citizenships.
Never cared for the term ''steamies'' conjures up images of my German Shepherd dropping a steamie in February on the frozen river
Jason Bourne would like a word with you about that
I've made it myself and it was very time consuming and not as rewarding as anticipated.
It's none of my business and I'm naturally inquisitive, have a thirst for knowledge that is never quenched, but if enjoyed so much, why only annually?
Similar to my first experience with the Outback restaurant, main ingredient was salt. Everything was terrible and inedible. Complained to the management and they mustered up some free drinks and desert but still never went back-in
I could see Hawkesbury with a Belle Province, they're right over the bridge from Quebec.
I was out riding around Victoria in the late 90's when I stumbled on a bagel joint. As soon as I walked in, I knew these guys were from Montreal. They had the same set-up as Fairmount bagels. The owner had actually learned his craft at the very same. Sesame and poppy seed were both amazing, took home a dozen of each.
Then you have their stupid commercials with an Aussie speaking. I have eaten once or twice there.
Doesn't Hawksburry have like a Valentines or equivalent already?
