I need help narrowing down my search for a great sugar shack (cabane a sucre) meal that includes pea soup, beans, back bacon, tourtiere, etc. I'll be in Quebec City Feb 11-14; Montreal Feb 14-21; and Ottawa area (Chelsea) Feb 21-25. The cabane a sucre should be within a half hour drive of those cities if possible. I'm looking for best value for money with tastiest possible food!
I'm also looking for suggestions for really cheap but tasty eats, fast food, cheese shops, bakeries, and grocery stores in those cities, or along the way in Trois-Rivieres, Riviere du Loup, etc. (any town between Halifax and Ottawa). Does anyone know of a french language website similar to Chowhound?
