Hidden gems on Montreal's West Island

Much talk here focuses on the downtown core. I was wondering if foodies had any secret gems to share - restos, grocers, you name it so long as it's food oriented - on the west island.

    Shahi Palace Report

    Petit Munich in West Island

    Restaurants in Dollard des Ormeaux/Pointe Claire

    My personal faves: Dejeuner Cosmopolitain in Pointe-Claire for brunch, Shahi Palace in Pierrefonds for channa bhatura and balti dishes, and Bardeco in Lachine for their veggie pizza.

      Unfortunately Petit Munich is no longer, a great shame since the German friend I went with said it was a little taste of home. Another place I like on Des Sources is Caribbean Tasty Treats, which I swear has the best Jamaican food in town. I've been with two Jamaican friends who can confirm this.

            Agreed, they have an awesome poutine sauce. If it's "canned" then it's not like anything I've tasted anywhere else.

          2. I recently noticed a new restaurant pop up right across the street from the Pierrefonds Loblaws, called Annie's Special. Curious name and can't find anything about it on the web.
