Welcome to another edition of Foodie Friday here at Travelin’ Cousins!
I’m your host Tanya, and today I’ll be taking you to the resort village of Mont-Tremblant, Canada.
While I’ve only visited the Mont-Tremblant area once, it was more than enough for me to know that I want to go back! And the fact that we actually found a restaurant with vegan options will only make that next journey that much more worth while!
During my initial stages of planning any trip is searching out the vegan food options in the area.
When I find a restaurant that meets my requirements then BAM it goes on my list, when that doesn’t happen then typically there are 2 options -
1. Book accommodations with a Full Kitchen
2. Live on the rations that I’ve shopped for ahead of time that which are along the lines similar to dry dehydrated backpacking food, or better known as BORING.
While I can do boring every now and again, because for me it’s more about the journey and the destination than it is about the food.
BUT when I can have it all I am one stoked girl!
Ya know, having your cake and eating it too…I mean who wants to have their cake and not eat it??
Anyhow, when traveling with the kiddos, they don’t do boring for too long without driving mommy (that’s me) a bit crazy!
Which brings me back to Mont-Tremblant, while researching this area I found nothing listed that was even remotely vegan friendly. Boo…
How the heck difficult is it for a restaurant to offer a few vegan friendly dishes?!
So anyhow, I’m not gonna go on rant here.
I booked a hotel that offered apartment like accommodations and had shopped at a Health Food store in Montreal prior to driving up to Mont-Tremblant.
I decided that it was well worth it to take a peak at the menu, and low and behold they did have Vegan options!! Woo to the Hoo!
So straightaway after the most excellent time tubing, and with a fairly beastly appetite, we had strolled directly back to this restaurant.
Stepping inside was most inviting, especially coming in from the bitter cold and frigid temperatures that we were experiencing. The restaurant itself is on the small side and very tastefully decorated. The server/hostess was quite polite, warm, welcoming, and pleasant in manner and character.
In addition to our entrees we inquired about the Tom Yum Tofu Soup, and were delighted to find out that it was vegan! YES! More warm liquid to fill my tummy with!
Dave and I had identical orders (Soup and Curry), where Cosette and Dominic also had identical orders (Soup and Pad Thai). Now while although I was totally stoked that we had found this restaurant to eat at; I really didn’t have very high expectations for it.
Next up was our main courses, and the aromatic broth from the coconut curry was already telling me that this dish was going to be delicious!
Then the kids Pad Thai was served, and it was unlike any Pad Thai that I have ever seen before! It came served in a bowl and looked more like a very colorful salad rather than Pad Thai.
Once the kids looked under all of the lovely fresh veggies they found the delicate rice noodles.
I honestly don’t know which dish I preferred, and I was actually kind of jealous that I didn’t order both the Curry and the Pad Thai!
I mean, it not like I had to finish everything - I could’ve taken leftovers!
Well the kids were very happy with their order, as were we (although I certainly wouldn’t have minded also having that Pad Thai), but I guess I can always order one of everything when we go back!
Now, I’m not sure about you, but I’ve certainly made myself hungry and craving some good Thai food!
Eat well my friends,
