Eventhough the Old Quebec is a must during any trip to Quebec City, there is another area to visit especially if you are a gourmet: Limoilou. Limoilou is located in the lower town not far from the Nouvo Saint-Roch District (but on the other side of the Saint-Charles River) and is recognizable by its outdoor spiral staircases.
As you can see, there are many restaurants on 3rd Avenue.
Here are 5 restaurants to try in Limoilou:
La Planque is an excellent restaurant for a date or special event. The menu is small, but no matter which dish you choose you will not be disappointed, it is very close to a gourmet restaurant!
Note: beware the restaurant La Planque is open on lunch time and it is recommended to book in advance.
Miyagi : you will immediately be seduced by the atmosphere and the friendly service of Miyagi. On the menu many Thai dishes are recommended, but you can also find unique and excellent sushi options.
Note: if you decide to try this restaurant, you must absolutely taste the Thai soup either as a starter or a main course.
No 900 : The pizzeria no 900 is simply the best pizzeria in Limoilou! You can taste the most classic pizzas made by traditional techniques or more original pizzas (or even have your own pizzas).
Note: If you like Neapolitan pizza, do not miss this pizzeria!
Artisan Brewery La Souche Limoilou: la Souche is an institution in Limoilou. It goes without saying that if you are a beer lover you will find happiness, but not only! Indeed, in addition to serving a wide selection of beers, La Souche serves many meals and is also known for its poutines. In addition to the regular menu, La Souche offers days such as “Moutine, a Poutine Mystery at $ 10”. In short, the Souche is the perfect restaurant for a successful evening with friends.
Note: The Chili Con carne poutine is definitely worth the detour!
Nicky Sushi: one of the attractions of Nicky Sushi is, without a doubt, its “sushi river”. The concept: sushi boats pass over a table river. If one of them interests you, you take it and enjoy! At the end of your meal, you pay according to the colors and number of plates accumulated. It is better to book in advance.
Note: Outside the sushi river, the restaurant also offers an all you can eat sushi option.
