Last week we were supposed to go to a Malian restaurant, but with complications we ended up to a Mauritanian one. I guess our trip to Mali is for another time ;).
Since I do know that you guys like my reviews on food and restaurant in Montreal, I guess I’ll introduce you to the Khaima (if you don’t know it already). The Khaima’s ambiance is really cool, because it is well decorated and you really feel like being in the middle of the desert. The ceiling is covered to simulate a nomad tent, you can eat on a bench and everyone gets to eat from the same plate. Pretty awesome right?
It was my first time going, (I knew it before, but never got the chance to go). However, I’ve heard that it was not that good so maybe this is why I never went. Keep calm, it is a good place to go, it is real nomadic food and it’s a great place for groups!
The owner Atik is an awesome host and you will not regret this experience. To give you an idea for ”connoisseur” or amateur, it’s a mixed of couscous and tajine. So here is what we were served: lentil soup (chorba), 3 servings of couscous: Chicken, Vegetarian and Lamb. My favorite one was definitely the lamb because it was sweet (I don’t remember exactly what was in it, but I think it was fruit based). Oh well, I’m really bad at describing taste, so I guess you’ll need to go by yourself.
Yes, I did take pictures, as always !
We ended it with the best mint tea I ever tasted (well in Montreal, because THE best tea in my opinion is at the beach in Algeria)! I swear, I’m Algerian and I’m very picky with Morrocan tea\ mint tea. The tea was just perfect, it reminded me the one I used to drink at the beach (oh nostalgia :( ). I didn’t take pictures, but I’ll try to go study there next time and take some snaps.
Hope you’ll like it !
* Please, if you do try some places that I suggest, comment and share your experience or pictures with me. I’ll be happy to post them!
Few days ago, I went on a business trip to Sherbrooke, a small town near Montreal. It took me around 2 hours to drive there. I figured I’ll share with you guys my pictures and this tiny trip experience. To be honest, It was the most exciting stuff that happened to me this semester…
We got the chance to eat at a delicious burger restaurant! The place was called OMG burger and it was pretty unique to eat there. I went with some friends and we didn’t realize we were in a church until we entered the place! A church guys ! Can you believe it ? It is so awesome how they refurbished it and transform it into a nice dining place !
The place was pretty dark, but you can tell that it was part of the theme and decor. I the same time, I think they tried to play with the sacred and profane, which is really funny !
Amazing Veggie burger, tasteful fries and homemade soft drink. The waitress came with so many dressings too !
* Gluten free bread available too :)
Got the chance to visit Bishops’ University in Lennoxville ! One of my favorite University so far. So antique and cute.
Voilà. Enjoy :)
Is it me or these statement necklaces are becoming a huge trend lately? Quite expensive for girls like me who live on a budget, but hey, if you want to buy these for 80-150 bucks, why not? However, I’m not here to talk about purchasing or proposing alternatives ( because I didn’t find cheaper yet :( ,but if I do, I will let you know!).
The purpose of this article is to compare it to the Chaoui culture we have in Algeria. These statement necklaces remind me of Chaoui’s ornaments. As you can see, Romans did leave their marks on Chaoui culture too, since they lived in North Africa for centuries. We do have resemblance with Afghans and Persians as well if you compare them closely.
SUPER interesting, don’t you think?

This Love is beyond the study of theology
that old trickery and hypocrisy
If you want to improve your mind that way
I’ve given up on my brain
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.
