Favorite delivery for Mcgill/Lower Plateau area?

woober Jan 15, 2009 02:48 PM

Just moved over here from Rue Crescent, so I still have a few old stand bys (Bardeco, Amelios, Boustan) but I was figuring I'd have a bunch of new options up here. I've tried a few places from flyers (Werby's...) and was let down.

Anybody have any favorites for delivery? I'm open to pretty much all types of cuisine, though I am a student so preferably not anything too expensive(not that Bardeco/Amelios are exactly cheap.) I also have an enormous appetite, so pizza usually is a better option than sushi, though if it's reasonably priced...

    I used to love pizza from Sandhu when I lived in that area.

      Mamma's on des Pins and Alto on Parc both make good souvlaki pitas.
      Mamma's is best known for their pizza, and Alto has it too, though I've never tried it from either place. Both are open really late Mamma's til 3 or 4 Fri & Sat, and Alto until 5 a.m. Thurs-Sat.

      75, avenue des Pins Ouest
      (514) 288-1128

      3462 avenue du parc, Montréal - (514) 844-9898

      Sago sushi on St. Laurent just above Pins is good, especially their lunchtime (until 3p.m.) combos.
      Can't find contact info for that location, it's newer, but here's the one at 2051 St-Denis:
      (514) 288-7716

      I'll let you know if I think of some other good ones, but Alto's is my go-to place, they got pretty much everything you could want and awesome hours.

        I live in this area as well but don't have many good suggestions outside of Boustan, which you mentioned. Mmmmmmm, Boustan.

        Well, welcome to the neighborhood and I'm interested in the responses to this thread.

          Alto's also has amaaaazing chicken wings. They are deep fried and spectacular. They come piping hot and crispy - very important :). Their pizza is also very very good although a little expensive.

            their chicken wings are a disgrace to the name. there is not a single restaurant in all of montreal that does chicken wings properly.

              You think so?! What is it that you don't like?

                i like plump, juicy wings fried crisp and swimming in a pool of delicious sauce. there isn't a city or town outside of quebec that doesn't do this right. the closest to what i want is the boul des sources location of cote st luc bbq. Chalet bbq almost does it right except they don't toss their wings in the sauce and you have to fight with them for any extra.

                  That's what I thought. I do too but you have to compare apples to apples. Alto's wings are deep fried in batter - nothing like their sauce slathered counterparts. As far as deep fried wings in batter they kill it - in my opinion of course :).

            Boustan is not in lower plateau, the OP meant it was in his old 'hood, Crescent.

              They deliver to the lower plateau.

            Yeah, Bardeco makes good dirty pie (mmm, rosemary), but i find it's not as good as a few years ago.
            I was always happy with Allo Inde. I'm pretty sure they deliver to Lower Plateau.
            Oh, and Three Amigos for those days that you really hate yourself and feel that you deserve punishment.

              I like the thin crust pizza and arugula salad at Tomato:


              The delivery both times I ordered from them was incredibly fast, although I doubt they can keep that up consistently, especially in this weather.

              The only issue is that their pizzas are a bit on the light side, with a thin crust and not too many toppings. So I wouldn't order from them if you are super hungry.

              Does anyone know what Boustan's delivery range is? I am just West of Saint Denis in the lower Plateau, and always thought I was too far for them.

                  Thanks for all the replies guys, looks like I've got a lot of eating to do. I was also just ordering from Santangelo's, who told me about orderin.ca. It has a ton of restaurants for my zip and apparently there's absolutely no extra charge. Hope that helps someone, I know alacarte express etc. always charge pretty ridiculous extra fees.

                    Speaking of Santangelo's, they just opened a new location on Lorne between Milton & Prince-Arthur.
