Au Pied de Cochon ROAD TRIP

We took a road trip to Montreal in order to eat at chef Martin Picard's temple of gluttony

We had a 6:30 reservation. By 7: the place was packed

We started with the Plateau des plateaux, a 2 tier extravaganza of goodness

The appetizer special that evening
Toast soaked in roasted meat jus, topped with morels, Parmesan & a poached egg
One of the best things I've ever eaten!

Poutine, the Canadian national comfort food of fries, gravy & cheese curd.
Picard's version with foie gravy, awesome!

Pickled venison tongues.

Rib of bison. Tender, meaty and delicious.

And the Piece de Resistance
Whole fried pig's foot stuffed with foie gras

Montreal is a fun little city, Au Pied de Cochon is a great restaurant.
Take a road trip!
