Montreal Essentials in 2 or 3 days

  • 1

I'll have a few days and would love to know what I must try--I'm open to anything but I'm mostly interested in local specialities... however common or unusual.

  1. Hiya, you might want to check out this thread - it covers the basics for someone who visited recently and only had a few days in Montreal as well. Could be a good place to start researching:


    Some things to definitely try while you're here:

    - bagels
    - smoked meat
    - sugar pie
    - Mtl-style rotisserie chicken or Portuguese grilled or rotisserie chicken
    - tourtiere (meat pie)
    - pudding chomeur (maple-syrup cake)

    Enjoy your stay!
