Pocketful of Dough – Tips on Tipping

Well done article… my experience has told me that for certain “results”, it’s best to stand-out or reach-out – rather than file-in. I don’t have a reservation. I don’t have a connection. I don’t have a secret phone number. The

  • Openings and closings, July, August, September 2017 July 28, 2017
    A Uniburger is opening soon on Notre Dame, I believe it's the old Frida location.
  • Ice Cream in Old Montreal July 26, 2017
    I would personally go to the Ice Cream truck on the other side of Place Jacques Cartier/de la Commune, Monsieur Crémeux (owned by local chef Martin Juneau), their soft serve tastes like real vanilla. Another place I've recently read about on another site that sounds interesting, "Le Petit Dep" on St Paul, they seem to […]
  • Montreal - Hochelaga July 25, 2017
    I looked it up, it is very close to the intersection of Ontario and Pie-IX, and one good point is that it is among the SAQ outlets open until 8 p.m. at least throughout the week Ontario/Pie IX 23021 SAQ Going to its code at the SAQ website will indicate what products are available there.
  • Weekend in Montreal July 25, 2017
    if you like Katz's, and don't mind the lineups there, then go to Schwartz's - but temper your expectations. If you have a car, it is worth the drive to Smoked Meat Pete's, way west in Ile Perrot, but otherwise, there is really much better food here to try, especially if you only have 3 […]
  • Hebrew National Hot Dogs in Montreal July 23, 2017
    Are these Hebrew National Kosher Beef Franks still available in Montreal? The places that I use to see them I haven't seen them there in a long time. Last time I saw in Montreal maybe 2 years ago.
  • Honey straight from the honeycomb? July 19, 2017
    I buy my honey from Jean Talon market. but I can tell there are not small beekeepers in the city. I have asked around and the farms that have fruit picking around Montreal sell their honey, too but all are more expensive than Jean Talon Market... The specific ones I've heard about are small beekeepers […]
  • What is the best tasting menu in Montreal? July 18, 2017
    Here is a list of some of the newer tasting menu in Montreal (might need to google translate that page): https://lapiqueassiette.com/2016/08/10/fantome-provisions-candide-hvor-mousso/ - Hvor is pretty hot in town at the moment, serving up nordic inspired cuisine akin to NOMA. - Fantôme has probably the best value imo, 8 dish for $65.
  • A two week food tour of Montreal (and Ottawa) July 11, 2017
    i thought so, describing Dante as ONLY a gun (and other hunting-related stuff) store. They have certainly maintained that side, though now they are more famous for cookware. http://www.quincailleriedante.com/en/home.html Unfortunately for sportsmen and sportswomen, Le Baron, a bit north of here in Villeray, has closed after a long run. Kill it and cook it, as […]
  • Openings and Closings: April, May, June 2017 July 6, 2017
    I saw a sign in the window of the dep that closed on the corn of lincoln/guy that says La Diperie will open there. DQ just opened across the street...lots of ice cream.
  • Best sandwiches or other takeout from the Jean Talon Market, Little Italy, Mile End, the Plateau or downtown Montreal to take on the train/road trip July 6, 2017
