Sorry for being away for so long but I was out of town for a couple days and when I returned home I didn’t really had the time to blog on anything because I had to take care of important things. Back to the topic du jour, last week I went to have tea time at one of the best tea rooms (in my humble opinion) in Montreal. I have heard of The Cardinal Tea room a couple years ago from friends and their reviews were mostly positive. So I added the place to my check list of the many food places to try in Montreal. And quite honestly it was a great experience. As a matter of fact, I put a big emphasis on the word experience.
Salt cod fritters are Caribbean delicacies that I have been eating forever. My love affair with accras, so to speak, started when I was very young and my mother would make us accras during snack time.
