Where to get a Pu Pu Platter in Montreal
My wife has never ordered a pu pu platter. I used to think a good pu pu platter was the best thing in life when I was 6 to 9 years old. I want to take her out for a date to get one. You know share this happy thing from my childhood.
Anyone know where to order one in Montreal?
Ahh lets see,
The Kon Tiki has a pretty good pu pu platter.
So does South Seas on Upper Lachine.
Then theres the original Mandarin on Stanley.
Kenny Wong has several sizes and choices.
The Bali Hai has pupu as a snack item.
If you're really stuck, theres always Ruby Foos.
WAIT...all these places are long gone...sniff.
The pu pu platter certainly fell out of fashion! Seems every non-chinatown chinese restaurant had a version, usually with flaming pot to "cook" your chicken livers or warm up the yakitori (although we called it "meat on a stick")
Its rumored that Aloha restaurant in St. Jerome
78 de Martigny Saint-Jérôme, QC J7Y2G1
has a pupu platter renamed as the Hibachi Grill
(I can't confirm this).
Luau in St. Adele took a page outta the Aloha menu and provides their own "Luau Hibachi platter (Poo Poo)")
(Why tiki lives on in the Laurentians is beyond me
My knee jerk reaction would be to check out Jardin Tiki on Sherbrooke East, but alas, I think they only do buffet (plus Souper Dansant Samedi Soir).
Thats all I got, but I'll keep an eye out!
I had to google pu-pu platter as it's bit before my time (sorry to rub it in, heh heh). Looks to me like a mixed platter of standard American-style Chinese apps: eggrolls, those puff pastry things, spareribs, various small skewers, etc.
Couldn't you just go to any buffet and assemble your own? You could stand a Zippo lighter in the middle for the gas burner if that's really needed for the experience.
