Sex on a plate

Okay, Chowhounds, don't fail me now! I'm looking for a selection of what I would call "sex on a plate": anything that is absolutely orgasmically delicious and can be found in a restaurant in Montreal. Mostly I am looking for sweet things, so cakes, pastries, desserts, chocolates, what have you are all welcome suggestions.
BUT, if you can name one absolutely orgasmic menu item at your favourite restaurant that people MUST try, that would also be awesome.
My foodiness extends mostly to sweet things so this is my alley.
A) Juliette & Chocolat: Some will argue that this has gone mainstream and is overrated. BS. It is popular for a reason. Their crepes with white chocolate is amazing. (I remember dealing with a break-up by placing two orders of it; stacking them on top of each other and finishing it with a brownie. I'm fairly certain it brought me on the verge of diabetes that day but....worth it).
I'm not big into sweets usually but the pain perdu at Lemeac is really amazing. So huge and delicious! I want one right now!
Though i do love white chocolate and now i want a crepe with white chocolate as described in the post above!
Desserts at Pop! (or Laloux). Still as good, even without Patrice Demers...
Lately I've had the "Orange spice cake, Araguani chocolate cream, roasted hazelnuts", which is one of the best dessert I've had in Montreal.
It's not upscale, but about once a year I crave the Chocolate Fantasy pie at Rockaberry. Layers of chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, strawberries and whipped cream. And come on, the name! They also have a "regular" Fantasy with vanilla mousse instead of chocolate, but if you're going to have a Fantasy, I say go all the way.
About a year ago I had an amazing hazelnut ice cream at Ferreira Cafe. It was a small scoop that was served as a garnish to a mundane dessert I really disliked. It saved the day.
