A few months ago a new microbrewery opened in the Saint-Roch district. After the Korrigane, the Barberie, here is the Noctem. Things always come in threes. At the entrance you see a cat on the sign. There is also one on the door. Is there a cat hidden inside bar? I have to inspect the facilities to make sure of it.
When entering you find yourself in front of a large bar. The place does not lack of space, the decor is simple but pleasant: wooden benches, tables and a few paintings on the walls. The beers on the menu are brewed on site or in other microbreweries. To eat the choice is pretty classic: cooked meats, burgers, mac and cheese, hot dogs, chili etc …
I am tempted by the “Je me souviens” IPA beer (we are in Quebec after all), which I would gladly have with a burger. The burger is served with red cabbage, so imagine my disappointment… I asked the waitress if I could have some fries but unfortunately the place does not offer it – strange for a bar that serves food. That does not stop me from testing other beers (cheers!), and after several the fries episode is quickly forgotten – it’s almost time to go home but still no traces of the feline. Where are you little cat?
