  • Find good quality beef consommé ? December 8, 2017
    Where can I find a good quality beef consommé ? near Jean Talon Market or plateau/mile-end ? I could start from scratch (bones, tomato paste ... ), but if I fail, I'd like a backup plan.
  • Best Ramen in Montreal December 8, 2017
    I not a ramen expert by any means but I tried the tonkotsu at Tsukuyomi (new spot on st-laurent, just above Fairmount) today and loved it. I am curious to hear what the ramen aficionados think. I found the broth rich and delicious, the pork belly succulent and plentiful. Loved the sweet soy egg. It […]

  • Argentinian pink shrimp at good price November 29, 2017
    Once again Provigo has the 26/30 red shrimp at 5,99$, starting tomorrow (Thursday, Nov 30th). I don't get the Maxi flyer so I don't know whether Maxi has them as well. Provigo does quite a few recurrent loss-leaders (otherwise, I find them expensive). They also have 690g Saputo Mozzarrellissima pizza mozzarella at 4,99.

  • Where to find SweeTango Apples in Montreal? November 26, 2017
    I finally saw SweeTangos at my Provigo, but they looked a bit worse for wear. I think they were on sale for $3.49 and honeycrisps were $3.99. I went with Ambrosias for $1.99, which are actually pretty good too.
  • Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal? November 20, 2017
    I'm a stickler though, :-) They aren't terrible, I'm just being overly critical. Try them and compare, I think they are just inconsistent, too much vanilla extract one time, too greasy the next but I had some this past summer at the DDO location and I enjoyed them.
