Au Pied de Cochon @ Montréal, QC

i went to montreal labor weekend for my friend’s biirfuday. we had an epic time there which involved with heavyyyy drinking, major lack of sleep, and hangover and result of that -> lost of appetite.

we made a reservation for au pied de cochon a month in advance and still got a 10:30pm reservation for sunday. i was dying to go there cuz it was featured on one of the anthony bourdain shows. being the first meal of the day at 10:30pm, i was still not hungry. the meal was supposed be super heavy, but because of my hangover, i could only eat a lil bit of it before i started to feel nauseous. bummmmer :'(

i still did enjoy the meal a lot, i would have enjoyed it even more if i werent in a such bad condition tho.

ok without further ado lets see what au pied de cochon is all about.

the restaurant was still mad packed when we arrived at 10:30pm on a sunday night. this pic was taken at 12:30am when we were leaving.

au pied de cochon is heavy on foie gras, but none of us is too crazy abt it so we ordered the foie gras poutine.

Foie Gras Poutine – this was soooo yummm. im not a huge fan of foie gras, but it was soo goood i had like 4 pieces of foie gras.

Pickled Tongue – i think this was the best beef tongue ive ever had. zero gameyness, super tender, well flavored, good texture.

beef tartare – i love all kinds raw meat, but i didnt like this. i didnt like how its marinated. i think like the strong alcohol taste. very gamey as well.

one of the special of the day – shepherd’s pie. of course they would have shepherd’s pie for special on sunday night. you’d know what i meant if you read anthony bourdain’s book. anyways, we did enjoy this a lot.
