  • Vote in Cult MTL's Best of MTL readers poll 2017 March 24, 2017
    Hey Chowhounders, this is the editor of Cult MTL. Just wanted to post a link to our 2017 readers poll, where you can vote for all your favourite Montreal restaurants. http://cultmontreal.com/votebestofmtl/ Note that the Food & Drink section is at the end of the survey, so you can skip the rest of the survey if […]
  • Food Events 2017 March 24, 2017
    Late notice, but they don't seem to be advertising much. Uniburger (Ontario St. location) has been doing it's annual anniversary celebration this week. A different chef each day creates a special burger and a portion of the price is donated to a charity of their choice. I happened on it on Wednesday and was rewarded […]
  • Schwartz's Smoked Meat now packaged and selling in grocery store! March 22, 2017
    Oh, that Lester's is even worse and similarly generic, way too wet.
  • Montreal Trip Report: Feb 23-27, 2017 March 21, 2017

  • P'Tit Plateau 2015 March 21, 2017

    Does anyone know where I can find scotch bonnet peppers near the plateau? Thanks.
  • Mont Tremblant - mid-range dining March 14, 2017
    Hi there! we're heading to Tremblant soon and I'm looking for suggestions (both in the village and in St-Jovite). The most comprehensive thread on this topic dates back to 2009 and I'm sure there have been changes. We will have a kitchenette and will be cooking some meals but I'm looking for mid-range recommendations for […]
  • What's in a Quebec sugar shack dinner? March 14, 2017
    That text seems pretty much on par with my version of things. Except that traditional pet de sœurs don't use maple syrup, just like traditional pouding chômeur doesn't use maple syrup. They were modest urban foods and, even then, maple syrup was an expensive rural ingredient.
