“Here are my favourite bistros near my home. After a hard day’s work, there’s nothing better than stopping by one of them to pick up some delicious food cooked with love. A guaranteed family hit!”

Isle de Garde

A true institution in La Petite-Patrie, Isle de Garde serves rich and delicious beers in a cozy atmosphere. Lately, our family treat has been to make a nice meal, then go for fries and beers at Isle de Garde. With their side of truffle oil mayonnaise, these are the best fries around. Decadence guaranteed!

My go-tos:

⁃ French fries with truffle oil mayonnaise
