That, followed by their steak and kidney pie. It was an eye-opening experience many years ago.

The most interesting I've had was here in my area, near Syracuse, NY. An upscale place offered duck poutine... smoked duck w/ goat cheese over potatoes fried in duck fat, although I can't remember what the "gravy" portion consisted of. It was transcendent, but too "groovy" to really recreate the original poutine vibe at the Toucan. Poutine requires a loud bar and sloppy pints. Soccer matches on the pub tubes doesn't hurt, either.

That is easily the least Canadian way to eat poutine

You HAVE to go to Orange Julep and try the drink.
Biodome.
Ste-Catherine street.

Where are you staying? Downtown, West Island etc

I've been to old Port today. Damn was it cold haha. Walked St. Catherine St yesterday and around the underground mall.

I will be going to the biodome tomorrow. Thanks for the idea! I had no idea about that place.

I don't think I've gone there in about 10 years. I remember going there for field trips in elementary school though. I figure maybe 3 hours? I honestly couldn't tell you.

There's a few interesting museums in MTL too.

You could make a trip to Parc Jean Drapeau. The Biosphere is there. You could also go to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.


Depending on your time frame you could make a trip to Mont Tremblant. Very nice, touristy place.
Roads to get there are some of the best driving roads around too! I would suggest going to the town of Lachute, and from there heading up the 327. My favourite road. You'll conveniently pass Lachute Performance ( http://www.lachuteperformance.com/en/ ). This time of year without snow the drive wont be as amazing as it is in the summer or fall, but still a great drive. Then Take the 15 back to MTL.
This will take up a large chunk of a day, but if you have the time to spare it's definitely worth it.

There's always Mt Royal.

Also speaking of driving, it's low speed and not the best road in the world, but Chemin Bord Du Lac is a decent little drive to the village of Pointe-Claire. Super nice little village along the water. A few restaurants (Gigi pizza is amazing. it's a hole in the wall and they only take cash, but you'll thank me later if you go), and lots of little shops. From Pointe Claire I'd suggest going to Sainte Anne De Bellevue. Another awesome little town. LOTS of good food. If you like Indian food Tandoori Bellevue is fantastic. But the go-to places are either Cunninghams, or Annie's.

From Ste Anne, I'd head to Senneville, taking Senneville road.
Gated houses.
Enough said.

That's all I can really think of right now, but I'm sure it's more than enough

Ninja Edit:
Check out Toyz Autoart http://toyzautoart.com/

Assuming you're going back to Guelph, stop in Vankleek Hill (my hometown, so if you see a red BRZ honk and go crazy) for some craft beer if you're into that. http://beaus.ca/
Then stop in St. Albert for the best cheese ever. You absolutely need to get some curds. http://fromagestalbert.com/?lang=en
From there you should go to Ottawa and stop in at Slick Auto. Your FRS and BRZ specialist! http://www.slickautosolutions.com/
OF course then you head to the Byward Market for some amazing food.

Looks like tonight I'll be heading to Le Cheval Blanc. Right down the road from my hotel and it has an unreal looking beer menu. Will do schwartz's and La Banquise tomorrow.
