Cheap and good around Atwater Metro ?
Not a 'hood that I'm familiar with.
Anything interesting for a simple lunch ? on the cheap side of things, no booze, veggie and meat are both ok options.
I'm open to every kind of food; even sandwich if they are worthy .
Hiya, Kazu for Japanese and Tapioca Thé for Szechuan would be my #1 choices. Yes, they are a few blocks east of Atwater and technically closer to Guy metro, but if you can swing it, it's worth the extra distance. ;-)
La Maison Bulgogi and 5000 ans for Korean. The former is a bargain though there's zero ambiance; the latter is a little more expensive.
Le Roi du Won Ton's a bit further afield but always a good bet.
moh used to work in Westmount Square and one of her regular hangouts was a little Korean-run sushi bar there. See: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/4762...

moh's suggestion sounds great, as usual.
in case it doesn't work out, should you feel like venturing up Greene, there's a very old, very basic luncheonette called Nick's, up near Sherbrooke. I've never had a full meal there but the atmosphere is amazing, and they should be able to get you a decent salad and sandwich.
chez nick. ha!
The food court of Westmount Square has more than just sushi and most of it would fill your request. Also, 5 saisons on Greene avenue, has prepared meals and what might pass for a terrace on a nice day.
Then if you are feeling adventurous, there is the pizza cone place in the metro. Lasalle College (just west of du Fort) has a restaurant called Fuchsia that is open from 12 until 2 staffed by their students, it is supposed to be dirt cheap.
I haven't eaten at either one - and I'm not entirely certain if Fuchsia is open to the public, so despite what I have heard second hand they might in fact be absolutely horrible places. I do not know if I will ever get around to trying the pizza cone, but one of these days I will get to Fuchsia.
