Hi,

i will be staying in Montreal and Quebec City over the new year and i am looking for authentic restaurants. I work as an expat in Tokyo, where eating is one of the biggest hobbies of most people, me included. I don't want to waste time at a bad restaurant at all, however i don't necessarily need 3 stars. My only demand would be that the food is authentic. Costs are not important.

Looking forward a lot to your recommendations!

    If your looking for Inuit food and cost is not an object check out the Kuujjuaq

    P.O. Box 210
    Kuujjuaq, Quebec
    J0M 1C0
    Tele: (819) 964-2943
    Fax: (819) 964-2980
    Email: webmail@nvkuujjuaq.qc.ca

    They would love to have you spend the night and you will not find food more authentic.
    I know the timing is a little tight but if there's a will there is a way :)

      Thanks! That seems cool, but I think it's just too far away -- almost 1000 miles and I can probably only get there by really small planes and its likely to take forever. Next time!

        Thanks also Hanklin, I will kept it in mind and maybe will be able one day to go and try it. We had a friend that is a pharmacist and use many days a month to go there. He told us it was a very unique place.

        How many days in Quebec, new Quebec cuisine? French old style? and where will you be staying?

          1 day in montreal (hotel not booked yet), and 3 days in Vieux-Quebec.

          I would prefer anything that is typical to Quebec, "French old style" sounds like I could have this in France too, and possibly at an even better quality.

          I was also wondering if there is a chance to try good Inuit food in Quebec? Not sure if this is offered, but I assume my chances would be higher in Quebec, than in Tokyo.

            First and the easiest no Inuit food in Québec! But I can also assure that seal is really really not good, tasted it once a long time ago, it was like black, greasy and just I can even add disgusting!

            Some restaurants are closed so just give me your dates, I will check and be back to you with suggestions, knowing now what you want.
