looking for a surprise near Highway 40 and highway 13
A huge patch just west of here is taken up by the airport. A chunk of the rest is industrial. I'm guessing there are probably some brasserie type places that would offer good, if basic, food to the working crowd. Trick is to travel the area to find them.
I used to work down the road, across from Portovino (when it was Le Vieux Pecheur). Sometimes we'd head to Brasserie des Sources for lunch (some of the guys would eat lunch at the Source du Sexe, but I never asked them how the food was...).
But then again, if you head to Sources, your choices go up...
