Lately, been having craving for steak with a splash of truffle oil...

Where does one go for good quality truffle oil in Montreal?

Thanks!

    2 places comes to mind.

    Gourmet Laurier on Laurier west.
    Milano in Lil' Italy.

    and maybe a 3rd place, The Spice and oil store at Jean Talon Market.

      Olive Olive on Laurier East must have truffle oil... and judging by the quality of the oils I've bought from them, if they have truffle oil it will be top quality.

      There are several spice and oil stores at Atwater Market that feature truffle oil.

          I have no way of knowing if this is true or not, but several sources claim that all truffle oil is artificially flavored (check the label to see if it says “aroma” in the list of ingredients). Perhaps you don’t really care, you like the taste regardless, in that case they have some at Les Douceurs du Marché at the Atwater Market.

            I've also heard this from reputable sources, though they were talking only about white truffle oil. At least some black truffle oil is made with actual truffles; in fact, it's pretty easy to make yourself.

            Marché Latina on St-Viateur usually has a small selection of truffle oils. That said, Olives & épices is probably where I'll buy my next bottle.

              I get mine (not that it's a regular purchase) at Douceurs du Marché, at the Atwater market.
              I ground chestnuts and duck confit, use this as a filling for ravioli, and drizzle a bit of the oil on top. Fine meal.
