EATING OUT
----------
CANADIAN RESTAURANTS COMPARE WITH THOSE OF EUROPE IN
VARIETY AND QUALITY OF THEIR MEALS. SELF SERVICE AND
QUICK SERVICE RESTAURANTS OFFER GOOD VALUE AT A LOW COST.
IN QUEBEC THERE ARE PLENTY OF GOOD FRENCH RESTAURANTS AND
ALSO PLENTY OF BAD IMITATIONS.
BREAKFAST IS SERVED FROM 7:00 AM UNTIL 11:00 AM THEN
LUNCH FROM NOON TO 14:30 AND DINNER FROM 19:00 TO 22:30.

TYPICAL MEALS
-------------
BREAKFAST: USUALLY FOR BREAKFAST YOU WILL HAVE THE CHOICE
BETWEEN A CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST OR AN AMERICAN-BRITISH ONE.
THE CONTINENTAL IS MADE UP OF TOAST, CROISSANT, DANISH OR
MUFFINS, WITH EITHER COFFEE, TEA, HOT CHOCOLATE OR JUICE.
THE AMERICAN-BRITISH STYLE IS MADE UP OF COLD OR HOT CEREAL,
PANCAKES AND MAPLE SYRUP, EGGS AND SAUSAGES OR THE CANADIAN
BACK BACON. IN SOME COASTAL AREAS FISH OR STEAK MAY BE
SERVED FOR BREAKFAST.

LUNCH: ONE OF THE FAVOURITE LUNCHTIME SNACKS IS THE SUB-
MARINE . THIS IS A LARGE SANDWICH MADE ON FRENCH BREAD AND
FILLED WITH MEATBALLS, HAM OR SAUSAGE, CHEESE, SALAMI,
TOMATO, PEPPER, ONION AND LETTUCE.

DINNER: SOME OF THE MAIN DISHES ARE LOBSTER WITH LEMON &

SOLOMON GRUNDY. THE SOLOMON GRUNDY IS MADE UP OF CHOPPED
MEAT, PICKLED HERRING IN OIL, VINEGAR, PEPPERS AND ONION.
CANADA IS A BIG COUNTRY AND EVERY AREA HAS THEIR OWN
FAVOURITE FOODS. IN QUEBEC THEY LIKE TO EAT THE FRENCH
CUISINE, FOR EXAMPLE, FROGS LEGS AND ONION SOUP.
ANOTHER MAIN DISH IS CIPAILLE, THIS IS A PIE AND CONSISTS
OF GAME AND POTATOES SEPARATED BY SIX DIFFERENT LAYERS OF
PASTRY.
