Chinese beef braised brisket dishes

Lately I've been hankering for good Chinese braised beef brisket dishes in Montreal. Any Chinese restaurants in Montreal making good Chinese braised beef brisket dishes(could be a soup or on rice, or something else)? Beef brisket that's been slow-cooked for lengthy time.

  1. I've been eating the beef noodles at Shing Do on Decarie in VSL.

    1. Fu kam wah, also in VSL, has a really good version of the noodle.

      Poon Kai had a cheap take-out version. It is good.

      My favourite clay pot version of the dish are in Keung Kee and Dragon dynasty.

      You may want to check out the South-East Asian of the dish, which was brought to various states in the Mekong Delta by Chinese migrant. It's called Bo Ko in Vietnamese, and it is a rich tomatoish beef stew.

        The bo kho at Pho Bac 97 is very good. It's my favourite dish there.

          Bo Kho is not a common dish at Vietnamese restaurants in Montreal I'm guessing? Noticed a customer at Pho Vietnamese restaurant recently was having a noodle beef brisket dish, now I know it's called Bo Kho.

            Tried to order Bo Kho at Pho Bac 97 restaurant twice the past two weeks or so(I was so determined to try it there). Both times they didn't have it that day. Today they tell me, they don't make it anymore at Pho Bac 97.

              Ah crap! That was the best thing there. Woe is me.

        2. Thanks all. I've written down all the suggestions so far. Keep them coming if they're other good ones.

          1. Any restaurants making Taiwanese beef noodle soup in Montreal(they use braised beef)? Never tried it. Not even sure how the broth of Taiwanese beef noodle soup tastes like(except seeing pictures).

              Roi du Wonton has Taiwanese niu rou mian. So does Yuki Ramen in the faubourg. They're not Tiawanese, but Cuisine Tian Tan does a pretty good version of niu rou mian, although I prefer the one at Maison du Nord.

                1. re: celfie

                  I second about Yuki's version...not good, I think the beef wasn't the best quality, when I was there. There is nothing good anymore at the Faubourg, complete write-off as far as I am concerned.

            2. I'm not completely sure it's brisket, but P&M makes a very nice beef stew. Could use a bit more star anise IMO, but still a good cold-weather comfort food dish.
