  1. I have actually eaten dinner at Qing Hua for a week straight when I was getting some work done on my kitchen.

      With the menu being just dumplings, that amazing soup and pork bones, did you get the same thing every night or did you vary it a bit?

      1. re: Andria

        I varied the dumplings, and they made me fried dumplings once!

        1. re: bigfellow

          Did you ever get the plate-o-bones?

          1. re: Andria

            Are you talking about the "salad"?

            1. re: bigfellow

              No green to be seen. Just pork bones, neck I believe, in a bowl served with disposable plastic gloves.

              1. re: Andria

                Yup, that's the neck bone salad!

    2. It would probably be M sur Masson. I love the service, love the food and it somehow feels warm and cozy.

        Ooooooooh! I have never been, but just checked out their menu. I would love to try most of their menu. I could even enjoy all their desserts! What are you favorite items - starte, main, dessert?

        1. re: Andria

          We recently ate there and I really loved the food. I had the bouc émissaire appetizer (chevre chaud), the scallop risotto with fresh peas and citron confit, and the caramelized pineapple. All three were excellent. I do find the prices quite high for the level of service, but luckily I wasn't paying.

      2. I'd head to Joe Beef right on Notre-Dame W. I dig the funky and intimate vibe, the food is fresh, delicious, and inspired, and the service is friendly without being overbearing. The fact money is no object is what seals the deal since I certainly couldn't afford to chow down there seven nights in a row under normal circumstances.

        1. The first two that come to mind are Le Petit Alep and Meat Market. Le Petit Alep always has excellent food, and the menu is varied enough that I haven't gotten around to ordering everything that I want yet (but so far, everything was fantastic). As for Meat Market, I've only been there once, and I was going there specifically for a burger, but I realized that there were a lot of diferent things on the menu that looked very good.

          1. I would also be happy eating at Le Petit Alep all week.

            I also would like to dine at Kieu Ahn, because I could never tire of really good, fresh, affordable Vietnamese food.

            Maybe also Le Georgia, because how could I deny daily katchapouri?
