Last year, a good friend of mine accompanied me on a trip from Toronto, Ontario, all the way to Fredericton, New Brunswick. It took us a few days to get to our final destination, but that’s mostly because we stopped in all sorts of places along the way. One of our favourite stops along the way was Quebec City, and I actually enjoyed the food there much more than I did in Montreal. On our last day in QC, we discovered a lovely little breakfast chain called Le Cochon Dingue, or “The Crazy Pig,” and I still think about the breakfast we ate there. If you ever find yourself in Quebec City, definitely drop by Le Cochon Dingue and get yourself a delicious plate of something great.
Une Omelette Au Fromage de Chevre
This is a delicious omelette with goat’s cheese! For $14.95, you get a 3-egg omelette with topped with goat’s cheese and grilled vegetables, and I was able to order mine with a little baguette and some home fries. They served mine with a cute little shot of a breakfast smoothie, too, and that kept me going all the way to Fredericton!
Pains dores, or French toast, is one of the things that Le Cochon Dingue is known for. Made with incredibly soft brioche, eating a plate of this stuff is amazing. My favorite is “De L’Ile d”Orleans,” which is Le Cochon Dingue’s standard french toast but topped with caramalised apples and maple syrup!
Pancakes are always delicious, but they’re also one of the most affordable breakfasts at Le Cochon Dingue. You can get 3 pancakes with maple syrup and some butter for only $10.95, and as you’ll see from the picture, we even got blueberries. While I’m more of a savoury breakfast person, those of you who are fans of sweet things will love this.
