Montreal – Valentine

It’s important to visit independent restaurants when travelling, but I can’t resist popping into some local fast food chains as well to see what they offer. Valentine is a burger and hot dog restaurant which was founded in Quebec and which now has around 100 outlets.

It was a hard decision, hot dog or burger…..

I went for the burger. Poutine is often called the national dish of Canada, although it is from Quebec and they’re very proud of it. To be honest, I’m quite happy just with the chips and gravy, I’m not too bothered about the cheese curds, but when in Montreal I felt the need to eat like the locals….

All was fine, pretty good value and I’d happily go back.
