Can you order poutine with the sauce and curds separately? I mean not dumped on top of the potatoes, which is such a waste of crispy fried potatoes.
What’s the French term for beer samplers (a tray of several small beers together)? I may not want to order a whole glass straight away.
And tipping. This is one of the most distressing things for us. (Why does the goverment inflict this on people, especially tourists?) I guess we just add extra 15% to the before tax? 15% is a “safe” amount as I’ve read it could be 10-20%.
What services do not “require” tipping?
How much to tip a taxi ride? I will have to take a taxi from the airport (YQB) to the lodging as there’s no public transport. Some say they were told the price AND how much tip to give.
I am highly sensitive to noise so eating out will not be 3 times a day but I am in Quebec and Ontario mostly for craft beers, wines and cheeses so I still have to go to the pubs. Some pubs and restaurants have sadistic music level which is normal, apparently.
What if you sit at the bar? I’ve read you also have to tip the bartender for each and every beer, is this right? (I think this is more an American thing)
Can you drink alcohol at the market? Say you buy some food and sit down at a public table inside the market to eat and want to have a beer with your food.
And tipping if you buy from a market food stall?
That’s all for now. Thanks!
