  • 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 […]

The specific ones I've heard about are small beekeepers […]

  • 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. 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 […]
