  • Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal? November 18, 2017
    Tried Loukouman yesterday. Fantastic! They fry them to order and they are light, fluffy, crisp, delicious. We got half with the traditional honey, cinnamon, nuts and half with chocolate (tasted like nutella). Other toppings available as well. Must try!

    Would be nice to treat oneself when taking the train...
  • Nacarat review November 17, 2017
    Thank you for the report. It is in the Fairmont so in that context, the pricing is not terribly unreasonable. Going to check it out when I visit Montreal (soon!).

    Hi, anyone know where to buy the best confit duck either in tin or vacpack in Montreal. Thanks
  • Anicet Honey November 13, 2017
    Love this honey, and I have been buying it at Tau and Rachelle-Bery for a few years, and I have also ordered it from Lufa Farms. I've tried the seasonal one to help with hayfever in the autumn. Not sure if it helped but it was a good excuse to eat a daily spoonful.
