Are there any must haves from trip de bouffe. I liked their cheese cigars and pita. How is their hummus?

    very good hummus. I love their guacamole taboulay hybrid salad.

    Not a fan of their falafel that is precooked and store cold. Nothing like a real falafel freshly fried or their bread pita. Don't get me wrong it's a tasty bread but don'T like the texture.

    Over all a very nice take out place with only a few places to sit.

      Thank you. I don't think I would have ever tried it(the guacamole tabbouleh)Where do you think I could get the best(freshest) pita in the city?

        I was introduced by my lebanese friends to this bakery on beaumont. All they do is bread. It's a factory

        Why I like them it's because you can get whole wheat pita with our without sugar,

        Montreal Pita
        654, avenue Beaumont
        Montreal, Quebec H3N 1V5
        Tel: (514) 495-4513

        Most middle eastern places like Adonis, Andalos, Achtarout Byblos make their own or have daily deliveries of fresh pita.

        I believe if my memory is good that trip de bouffe make their own pita. Talk to George the owner who is very friendly. His partner with the beard is kind of nice but has less knowledge. When my wife was asking him questions. His answers were yes no but no explanations like George.

        One trick I learn is to keep your fresh Pita in the freezer if you want to stack up and thaw it in the fridge. It will be as good and fresh. I reheat my pita at home in the nuke machine for 10 seconds. The taste and smell of hot pita is great.
