  • Libertine Bakehouse September 22, 2017
    Yes! Enjoyed a nice lunch at Bazin recently, too. The lemon basil tart was fantastic. I need to get back to Patrice again, too. What is your favourite there?

    Trou de beigne on Saint Zotique is my current favourite. Heard a lot about Cremý on Mont Royal, but they were a stodgy disappointment.
  • Argentinian pink shrimp at good price September 14, 2017
    Thanks Jerk, and all! I thought that was a high price for a sale; I've also found them at IGA nearby (the one at the corner of St-Zotique and Boyer/St-André) much cheaper. The ones I wanted most were generic, not Marina del Rey, and cheaper. This is for a community association supper where I'm a […]
  • Entenmann's in Montreal? September 14, 2017
    Gracias, JerkPork. I appreciate your suggestions. So far it seems that Dizz's is a one-off Montreal purveyor of Entenmann's. Unless someone can provide some more info....
  • zero chocolate bar? September 14, 2017
    There is or was 3 Cool Zero bars milk and dark but also a white one I often bought the white one at London Drugs here in Canada. Like others said it seems to be a hard find in summer or warmer times of the year. There is also the other Zero bar too
