Where in Montreal for 1)Poutine, 2)Smoke Meat and 3)Bagel?
I am planning to head to Montreal for a long weekend. Where can I get best poutine, Montreal smoke meat and Montreal bagel in or close to downtown? I will be staying near Metro station Place Des Arts.
1) La Banquise is the best. Orange Julep actually has a very underrated poutine. Also, the little restaurant in St. Sulpice has a great poutine.
2) Schwarts' is the the best smoked meat. Don't settle for Dunn's, or any other smoked meat places.
3) St. Viateur has the best bagels, BUT go to the original location on St-Viateur. For some reason, the one on Monkland just isn't the same.
Poutine: Patati Patata (baskets are fun!)
Smoked meat: The Main (Schwartz's doesn't have the club roll. Sorry.)
Bagel: Fairmount (I sacrilegiously enjoy the bozo bagel.)
