Food Heaven

Detail of graffetti on a boarded-up building near my apartment

Dunter and I went to Juliette & Chocolat yesterday. It is arguably ‘the’ place to go for chocolate in Montreal. We each ordered a chia latte and then fondue to share. The fondue consisted of delicious, pure melted chocolate, with exotic chopped fruits on the side that were elegantly presented on the plate. The service was poor, but the waitresses all wore red berets and cravats which made up for it. I thought it be a great place to work, as I already dress that way!

We were still hungry after we finished off the fondue and lattes, so decided to walk up the street and see what we could find. I had fun looking in the windows of all the designer shops and babbled on to Dunter about fashion and home decor. When we started getting really hungry, we randomly picked a restaurant called Restaurant Jano which turned out to be a popular Portuguese grill! It looked empty from outside as no one was sitting at the window, but the back of the restaurant was packed with families and people out with their friends.

The food was amazing! It reminded me of my Dad’s summer cooking. We each ordered the special, which consisted of a green salad, grilled chicken, lamb chops, red peppers, and fries! It was so yummy! I was in food heaven….

After we had eaten to our hearts content, we went to a video store. Dunter is addicted to buying movies and he bought 3 DVDs. I amused myself looking through the UK section of the store. I checked out their rental section and found an array of British mysteries… in French! I had no idea that British murder mysteries were popular in France or Quebec, but apparently they are! Maybe I should watch Poirot in French one day.

I spent Monday working on my resume and internship-request cover letters before going to work that evening. I applied to some places online, then printed others to deliver in person on Tuesday. I went to work feeling upbeat and confident in myself, but my confidence didn’t shine through my calls as I didn’t make one sale despite my best efforts. One day down, two to go to make those 2 sales in order not to loose my job. The pressure is on!

Now I sit at home in my quiet apartment where the only sounds are the refrigerator humming and the muffled ‘clomp’ of the people walking around upstairs. It’s such a relief to come home to my quiet apartment after a busy shift at a noisy call centre!
