Restaurant after Movies at AMC

Hi -

Wondering if you guys can reccomend a good place to go after a movie at the AMC on St Catherine. Always get out around 9:30PM walk down St Catherines hungry and can't find anything open that looks good....

  1. Maison Bulgogi, the Korean resto on the corner of Ste-Catherine and Chomedy, is open till 11 p.m. Doesn't look like much but the food's very good, the service fast and the prices low.

        It's become my go-to place in that end of town. You'll be eating within ten minutes of placing your order -- great when you're in a rush to make it to a movie. The bulgogi ("barbecue") beef is a winner but search the website for other reccos of specific dishes. For example, see

        I'll heartily second that. Goes with a movie better than popcorn.

          This is always where we go after movies. I love the kimchi and pork soup. And the lady there is so nice.

            and because prices are reasonable, I always order the pa jon (seafood and green onion pancake) even though I know its way too much food. Her dipping sauce is very tasty and the pancake has a really crispy outside.

            If you are into Korean style chinese food, the tangseyuk is also good here (Deep fried battered beef in sweet and sour sauce). Classic fusion cuisine. So clearly based on the chinese dish, yet different.

              My mother makes the same dipping sauce. I guess it's a Korean standard. Soy sauce, garlic, touch of rice vinegar, green onions and Korean red pepper. Let it sit for a little bit and voila Korean dipping sauce!

              1. re: calla0413

                It is a standard, but for some reason, I can't make mine taste as good as some I've had, including hers. Must be the ratios, but darned if I can nail it...

                1. re: moh

                  As it is with most cooking I know, Korean especially, it's an eyeball-and-taste thing. My mother always says, "just about this much". In Korean terms it has meaning but, me being raised in the States "just about this much" can have lots of meanings. LOL I need exact measurements too!

                  Ironically, having said that, I think I have come very close to getting this dipping sauce down with the eyeball-and-taste trick. So, the next time I make it, I'll try to take measurements. No promises because you know you need "just about that much" of this and that to make the sauce...hahahahaha....

                  1. re: calla0413

                    Measurements would be great! That being said, how many times has my mother said " about 1 tablespoon, yes, but if the soy is not salty enough, just add a little bit more" with no definition for the"little bit more" So even when i pin her down, she squirms out of committing to an amount! The other thing she does is change her recipes on a regular basis. You should see how many versions of chap chae I have written down!!!

              2. re: moh

                There also used to be a glitch on the menu, where something that is said to come with Japanese udon noodles, actually comes with her homemade noodles, which are beyond amazing.

          2. And if you're looking for a nicer (but much pricier) place, there's always Tavern on the Square, in Westmount Square.

            And there's Pret a Manger, just a few blocks east of Maison Bulgogi, which I believe is also open till 11.

              I have fallen in love with the japanese tofu dishes at PM. Especially the spicy pork one.

              1. re: mainsqueeze

                Yes, the spicy pork with eggplant is my favorite dish these days. I've been eyeing hot pot dishes that many people seem to order there as well. They look delicious. On top of this, the owners are nice and the prices are very fair for the amount of food you get.
