Ruby Burma questions
We are visiting Montreal in October. I have read good things about Ruby Burma and would love to try Burmese cuisine. Are reservations needed for Fri or Sat dinner? Also, is the menu vegetarian friendly? From browsing Naomi Duguid's Burma cookbook, it looks like fish sauce is a common ingredient.
Had lunch at Ruby Burma the other day with a friend.
The place was pretty large and there were a lot of space but I would not know how full it gets on Fri or Sat. Its also BYOB and there is a wine store (SAQ) just in front.
I liked it very much! Its wasn't a gastronomic event and it was one notch below my discovery of restaurants like the Kazu but it was one notch above most other other ones! So, not 5/5, but a solid 4/5!
Everything we ate were very good, honest, different, mostly a new experience, it wasn't expensive for the quality and the owner was very nice!
The starters are very vegetarian friendly and there are a few salads which are not only typical of burma but vegetarian to boot.
If you like new experiences I might also suggest an Indonesian restaurant called Gado Gado which is in the same group (new cuisine from a fresh region of the world well executed for a good price).
