Does anyone know of a place in Montreal where I can find authentic kovbasa/kielbasa? Preferably not purchased from a supplier? Any leads on this would be helpful.
Felix Mish in Verdun. They make their own sausages, and they are fabulous. I love their kiebasa, I can eat half a link in one go by myself raw if I let myself. It is also really delicious grilled on the BBQ. They make delicious debrizner (sorry about the spelling), very good liver sausage, and a very delicious head cheese. A couple of my Polish friends feel Felix Mish is one of the best in the city for sausage. The owner is a lovely friendly person who is very proud of the product he makes. They do supply a few places in the city, for example, I know I can get his kielbasa at Eurobatory.
Uh oh. Now I want kielbasa
I have to second moh's suggestion. Felix Mish is terrific. I'm in New York, but often visit Montreal. I've been going there since Felix was still there. His son, Ron, took over many years ago, and kept his father's recipes. And his smoked meat is a special treat.
Just remember at the border they will ask about the meat you are bringing in, so be ready.
And if you crave ponchki, Wawel has them but never on Monday!
I like the keilbasa at CHARCUTERIE M.D in DDO:

Pick up some sausage and get lunch at Bombay Choupati just down the streeet.
