Shakshuka (Shakshouka) in Montreal

Does anyone know of Montreal establishments serving this wonderful North African/Middle Eastern dish?



(I made the David Lebovitz version the other day and it was amazing).

    I know La Rose des Sables (a Tunisian byow on Beaubien) has it as a starter. It is actually North African, Tunisian mostly, and has become popular in Israel as made by Tunisian-Jewish Israelis.


    I've never thought to order it in a restaurant though, as it is easy (though some versions such as David Lebovitz's take some time to cook), cheap and very tasty. I like to make it with tiny (pee wee) eggs.

      Rumi has it on its brunch menu. Unfortunately, their website is currently down. As far as I know, they're still open ...

        Arts Cafe also has it on their menu: http://www.artscafemontreal.com/en/

        Never tried it, but it seems to be a popular dish whenever i go.

                I didn't have everything he uses, but I winged it. (I've made chakchouka several times before, love it). I actually had half-decent greenhouse tomatoes from JTM (small Italian type from Ontario).

                Yes, thank you very much.

                I think Bagel, Etc on St-Laurent below Marie-Anne has it, but I have never tried it.
