un voyage gastronomique

the world is your platter


Un voyage gastronomique is the birthchild of two foodies based in the diverse foodscape of Montreal, conceived among cheese curds and smoked meat poutine, three parts gluttonous, two parts Malaysian, and a pinch of blood and sweat à la Bruce Bogtrotter’s chocolate cake (hey, what doesn’t kill makes us stronger!). It is a written and pictorial extension of the palate, French dressing and all. We use the tongue and the senses here, as well as the oxford comma.

Blur as blur can be, Sotong is nicknamed after the Malay word for squid – a cultural reference to dreamy-headedness. Her dreams, of course, are filled with hills of food, food, and more food…

Since moving back to Asia, Nikki has officially hung up her bib for this blog but continues to write and enjoy food.

    I’ve added a new feature so you can publish your blog posts on Urbanspoon yourself without having to wait for us to do it! Next time you post a review, give it a try. Here’s how:

    – Make sure you’re signed into Urbanspoon.
    – Go to your Urbanspoon blog page (not your user profile): https://www.urbanspoon.com/br/67/11204/Montreal/un-voyage-gastronomique.html
    – Click “Edit blog settings”.
    – In the Pending Posts section, click “Edit and publish my pending posts”.
    – Then, enter the “snippet” text, verify the date and URL, and press Publish.

    Please make sure that:
    – The URL should be the permalink to the blog post (not the blog home page, a post preview, or a service like feedproxy).
    – The snippet should be 2-3 sentences (quoted from your blog post) that gives an idea of what’s in the post.
    – The snippet should NOT include bylines, dates, address info, captions, tags, HTML code, etc.

    Note: there may be a delay of 1-2 hours after you post on your blog until our system detects the post.

    We’ll give you one week to do it yourself, then it’ll go into our queue to publish.

    Thank you for all of your contributions, and let me know if you have any questions.
