Visiting ...from Toronto

domesticgodess Jul 9, 2009 08:08 PM

So on my last trip to Montreal (to attend the beer festival)...I went to:
-La Banquaise
-Jean Talon Market
-Atwatter Market
-Schwartz's

This time around, I want to go to:
-another poutine place
-pied du cochon
-back to Jean Talon Market (coz I was in heaven there).
-something else unique.

I brought back to Toronto, some fantastic beer, a great butter, some unique spruce beer,
cheese and Im sure I will find other goodies this time around too.

Suggestions are welcome. i.e another poutine place, and something else unique.

Thanks in advance.

    • Another poutine place: Ma'am Bolduc
    • Au Pied De Cochon
    • Something unique: Wilensky's Light Lunch (a Montreal institution), Petit Alep (near Jean Talon market), Reservoir (for brunch + beers)

    And since you like beer, I suggest you head over to Vices & Versa, a lovely pub that has dozens of local microbrewery beers on tap.

        For other unique experiences:
        - La Bottega (on St-Zotique and St-Dominique not far from the Market) for authentic Napolitan style pizza.
        - Kitchen Gallery (on Jean-Talon near St-Dominique) small restaurant with market fresh menu, owned and run uniquely by chefs, no waiters.
        - Laloux (on Pine Avenue and Laval) the best French bistro with the most authentic decor.
        - Cluny (for lunch in Old Montreal's Multimedia district, on Prince street) Placed in an old Foundary, part art gallery, part restaurant, communal tables made out of old bowling alleys. Great lunch food, save room for the chocolate cake!
        - Pintxos (Roy corner Laval) tapas from the northern region of Spain, a true small Montreal neighborhood restaurant

        Other food things:
        -Les chocolats de Chloé: best chocolate maker in Montreal, each chocolate is made by hand and the flavours are unique. Right next door to Pied de Cochon.
        - Camillia Senisis: accross the street from Jean-Talon Market, on Casgrain Street. Specialized only in teas, worth a visit even if you're not a tea drinker.
        - Les Touilleurs: (on Laurier near St-Urbain) upscale kitchenware store and cooking
        demonstrations.
        - Quincaillerie Dante: (on Dante corner St-Dominique, south of the Jean-Talon Market) half kitchenware store, half hunting gear... very great place
        - Roma: (on St-Laurent near Dante) italian bakery, go for square baker's pizza, get the original tomatoe variety. The squishiest goodness, very addictive
        - La Vieille Europe: (St-Laurent near Shwartz) european grocery store, lots of great take home finds.
