Best Feta cheese in Montreal?

Eating this order Jun 15, 2010 02:22 PM

I'm back from a trip to Greece and it goes without saying i've had over there the best feta ever. Does anyone know where to find the best feta in Montreal? The best one I had in Greece was rather soft and creamy for a feta, a bit less salty than what i am used to, but had that yummy goaty taste to it. I'm still craving for that texture and flavor!

While I'm at it, anyone knows where to find the greatest Manouri cheese in Montreal?

    Balkani in the new extension at the Jean Talon Market usually has three or four types of feta. Their Macedonian feta sounds similar to what you describe. It's not very pricey and they'll let you sample.

      While at Jean Talon Market, you should also check out the feta selection at Hamel - they also have a variety, including Greek, Bulgarian and Canadian. Between that and Balkani, you should be able to find what you're looking for!

        I would highly suggest Marche Adonis as well, they have a large selection of feta, such as Greek, Canadian, Bulgarian and my favorite, Egyptian.

      Have you tried Marche Adonis?

        I think the best feta is the one made by the Troupeau Benit nuns... look at this thread for more details:
