  • Jean Talon Market & Vicinity 2017 May 22, 2017
    There's a stand this year that is making nougat on location, it was phenomenal. Ranks up there with the nougat I've had in the Mediterranean. He's from France and he told me his family has been in the nougat business for 80 years. He will cut whatever amount you want and it's priced at $45/kg. […]

  • Seeking advice for Montreal & Quebec City "food destination vacation" May 22, 2017
    At Pied de Cochon, you can have poutine with foie gras! I like Marché Jean-Talon better than Atwater because they have a better selection of seafood. One stall, Les Délices de la Mer/Atkins et Frères if I remember correctly, sells cooked whelks; get them before the restaurants start carrying them on the menu and driving […]
  • Montreal: Poutine and Shish Taouk and Couscous and.... May 20, 2017

  • Cocktail Bars In Montreal? May 19, 2017
    Things are definitely improving, especially in the last 5 years or so, with mixology really taking center stage at numerous spots, be it bars or restaurants. Here are a few of our favorite bars that make great cocktails: Atwater Cocktail Club, Mayfair (1st pic), Le Mal Necessaire (2nd pic) Otherwise the following restaurants also push […]
  • Montreal vs Toronto May 15, 2017
    Well, I have to admit I would certainly put some of the smoked meat sandwiches I have in Montreal as better than any I've had in Toronto. I still think Schwartz's are delicious. (Though I also have to admit not having tried many of the smoke meat sandwich offerings in Toronto for many years, so […]
  • Openings and Closings: April, May, June 2017 May 13, 2017
    Looks like Omma, the korean place on Bernard near Jeanne Mance, is either moving or opening a new location. Saw a sign at Clark and Ontario.
  • Help - Montreal seeking wheatgrass seeds best price May 12, 2017
    I would like to make wheatgrass juice. Are there any places that have best prices to purchase organic wheatgrass seeds (i.e. Red Hard Winter Wheat berries ) in bulk, preferably in the areas close to C.S.L., Montreal West, N.D.G., Snowden, Monkland, C.D.N.? Thank you!
  • Le Filet or Liverpool House? Accidentally double-booked! May 12, 2017
    Whatever place you choose, please, please, pretty please call the other place to cancel your reservation !!! I would suggest Le Filet (first because it is good, and it is fish oriented, and it is close to home :-) ).
