Cabane à Sucre Bouvrette

Québécois in Montréal

In business for seven decades, this enormous 'shack' 45-minutes north of Montréal serves a set menu that includes ham, bacon, sausages, oreilles de crisse (deep-fried pork jowls), fried potatoes, oven-baked 48-egg omelets, pea soup, baked beans, beet juice and homemade pickles, all slathered in maple syrup. Kids will love the petting zoo, old-fashioned locomotive and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

For dessert don’t miss the classic tire d’érable, maple taffy made by pouring hot, concentrated maple syrup over snow, then rolling the congealed syrup onto wooden sticks.
