Hong Kong Travel Blog - Hong Kong Suckling Pig: Hong Kong at Night
You’re running in the pouring rain in the streets of a large city, maybe in Asia, or perhaps in England. You guide a somewhat eclectic group of Europeans, from a side of the street to the other, trying somehow to avoid the soup, which falls like strings of melted cheese from the sky; you climb a steep hill, going against the direction of the water flowing constantly down the street and past the already-full gutters.
In Sept-Iles, Quebec, there are some inevitable institutions for the traveler. Some old, some new. Le Casse-Croûte du Pêcheur is part of the first category. Settled in a parking lot between the city center and the industrial port, the restaurant has two sections: the first, a small gray and blue cabin where patrons order at the counter, then eat their snack at picnic tables; the second is the ultimate exaggeration of a giant lobster cage covered in a thick layer of Plexiglas, chock full of cheesy trinkets.
