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.

  1. I really enjoy the one from Slovenia on St-Laurent. I also took a cooking class with a known chef and that is the one that was used.

        +1 more for Slovenia. Queue de cochon would be my other choice.

        There's some discussion of Boudin Noir on this thread:

        Of course if anyone has tips on where to get Spanish style morcilla de arroz, I would be very grateful.

          Bought some morcilla at Librairie Espagnole a while ago. Not sure if they carry it all the time

            Oh really? That's great news. I'll give them a call.

              I tried the one from la librarie espagnol and it's not that great....i was really disappointed.

      2. 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 thank you sincerely for this as I was planning a trip to the JTM anyway this week. Now you've really given me something to look forward to.

        2. 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.
