Best Boudin in Montreal?

One of the great things about Montreal is that its one of the rare places in North America in which you can readily purchase blood sausage, or "boudin" as its known in French, in most supermarkets.
While these range from terrible to pretty good, I was wondering if any Chowhounds know of any locations that sell some truly epic Boudin. The sort of stuff that would make Anthony Bourdain roll his eyes in delight.
Excellent Creole-style boudin at Boucherie Milan in Jean-Talon Market (NOT nearby Boucherie Milano) made by Magalie, a Haitian staff member who is a wonderful cook.

I've had really good boudin from Boucherie de Paris in Côte-des-Neiges. To me it was pretty similar to the one they serve at The Sparrow with the english breakfast, which I like a lot.
