Kosher restaurants in Montreal - anything for vegetarians?

Will be in Montreal this weekend, so I searched the board and like another poster 2 weeks ago, found a long thread from a year ago. One complication we have is that one person in our party is a vegetarian. Do the recommended meat places (e.g., Chops, Morty's) offer anything that works for her? Also, is El Morocco kosher or not at this point in time? We'll be staying downtown? TIA

  1. We ate at Chez Benny this summer and liked it very much. It's not a table-service restaurant though, more like a cafeteria. Our vegetarian daughter got the falafel and hummus platter and it was very good (I tasted some). I can't vouch for cross-contamination issues such as the falafel perhaps having been fried in the same oil as dishes which contain meat. But if that's not a concern and you don't need a table-service restaurant, Chez Benny could definitely fit the bill.

    1. According to their own website El Morocco is no longer kosher. Their website is in French which I read poorly but I used Google Translate. Interestingly, for whatever reason, when I pressed the translate button "El Morocco" became "El United Kingdom," but it still wasn't kosher.
