Anyone know if any restaurant in Montreal serves this wonderful Sandwich?

    Can someone that went to Guadeloupe can tell if it is the same as the Bokit...? As your description it seems similar

      Bagel Etc. (St. Laurent near Marie-anne) has one. Haven't tried it , though.

        Em Cafe (on Parc Ave. in Mile End) has a Monte Cristo sandwich on their brunch menu, but it was highly disappointing-- just a ham and cheese sandwich with the outsides of the bread pan-fried. My past experience with the Monte Cristo is a ham, turkey, and cheese sandwich where the whole thing is battered and fried, doused with powdered sugar and served hot with maple syrup. This was served kinda lukewarm.

          How disappointing. I am dying to try one like you describe. Hopefully someone will give us the scoop on where to find one.

            Just saw the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives program on Food Network have a diner in the US offer Monte Cristo sandwich. Now wondering if any Montreal restaurants is offering a good one.
