Great site,..
I love NYC pizza..and cannot find many in Montreal that come close..
One that does is Vinizza on Jean-Talon right at the market.
It's my current favorite

Beautiful website! I'm so surprised I've never stumbled upon it! I'm also surprised you haven't reviewed Aix Cuisine du Terroir. I was very impressed with it on several dinner occasions (lunch not so much). Bison two ways and the kamouraska lamb.

Also, have you tried Newtown on Crescent? It's new but looks wonderful. I'd love to hear what you think before I spend a lot of money on dinner. I know their lunch is very affordable, but I was so disappointed by Aix Cuisine's after I fell in love with them that I wouldn't want my heart broken twice.

ooo... i am an eggplant super fan! sigh. i want the spicy eggplant sooooo badly right now. with rice.

this is really one of the simplest dishes to make anywhere in the world so long as you can get hold of eggplant and sauce package.

Here I bought a sauce pack so as to skip all the seasonings! and i will try this friday after work.

2008-09-07T18:46:00.000-04:00

Quite surprising that you didn't mention the «maison-mère» of Wawel Pâtisserie, on Ontario Street at the corner of Frontenac. Plus, they just renovated it, served an excellent espresso, probably the best homemade bacon in town, different kind of hams to die for, and lot more.

Peace,

Maxime

Thanks so much for this great list!
My husband and I went up to Montreal for the Jazz Festival last month with our dog. I was determined that we would eat good food while we were there. With your help we did.

In the three days we spent there we ate at Niu Kee, Duc de Lorraine, twice, the Jean-Talon Market, and had gelato at Roma. It was all fabulous and I can't wait to go back for some more.

thanks again!
Rita

Unfortunately, Uyghur no more...Closed for a while.

Also, another Le Roi du Wonton fan here. That place is seriously underrated.

2007-12-21T22:34:00.000-05:00

It is my first visit to this blog and it has been succesful! I want to make some recommandations for eating in downtown so I am blogging for the first time in my life, hence hint hint, I do not really know if I am working this correctly.

Anyways, my first recommandation is Santa Lucia on 1264 rue Stanley, just south of St. Catherine. Excellent crust! They serve you with bread wormed up in the brick oven as you sit down. Their pizzas are baked in brick oven and they are very delicious depites looking simply. Also, very very good cream soup. My husband and I have no shame fight over the soup in front of other customers. We have recommanded this restaurant to several people, some are self-proclaimed groumet, and have received not one single negative feedback and in fact they all love it a lot! Please do not forget this friendly restaurant next time you are in towntown. I want this place to stay around forever!

An other recommandation is a Chinese restaurants. Yes, there are many of them alone with many Korean restaurants on St. Catherine, but too many of them are just cheap and fake North-American Chinese fastfood type dives. This is is run by two in-laws from Taiwan. Its official name is Le Roi du Wonton, though I do not think it is signed at the store. Here is how to find it. Its address is 2125 St-Marc just North of Maisonnauve street. Truly home-made, the services are from the heart. Their noodles are HAND MADE on order. My personal favorite is the noodle with chicken in peanut sauce. My husbands favorite is twice-fried pork with noodle. A down side to true home-cooking is that it could take a while to get your orders served, so go and enjoy when you are not in a rush or if you have a wired meal time.

Hope some of you will enjoy my recommandations!

2007-10-05T12:39:00.000-04:00

Hi Julie,
Thanks for the nice comment. La Colombe is definitely someplace we'll be checking out this fall. One of these days, we'll work on QC. We should do it soon, what with the big quadricentennial coming up and all.

Hi Lagatta,
I'd heard good things about Le Tibet Libre... Guess we'll have to pay them a visit sometime to experience things first-hand. Thanks for writing in.

2007-10-05T10:33:00.000-04:00

A pizza place that is surprisingly good (given the odd name and granola vibe) is Le Tibet Libre on Beaubien just east of St-Laurent. I haven't tried any of the stranger vegan or Asian-inspired ones, but they are great for simple, classic (meatless) pizzas: http://www.montrealmirror.com/2007/083007/resto.html

The crust is excellent. Alas they don't serve wine and aren't a byo, but I live close to there and take the pizza home. (I also live close to Bottega, of course, but it is rather too expensive for me, unless once again I only get the pizza to go)...

2007-07-13T22:33:00.000-04:00

La Colombe is remarkable -- my favorite meal out of three dinners in Montreal, the other two being L'Express and APDC. Can't wait to go back when we visit again in a couple of weeks. I love your site -- it's thoughtful and demonstrates such an excellent food sensibility. Like others, I'm really hoping for something to point me to good restos in Quebec City, since we'll be there in a couple of weeks...

No, we've never been to either La Colombe or to YoYo. La Colombe has been on our list of places to check out for a while, though. We've heard very good things.

Ever been to La Colombe or YoYo? Looking for an intimate setting. Read a comment that La Colombe was more promiscuous than intimate!

2007-03-30T18:45:00.000-04:00

i was wondering what had happened to niu kee.

i went a month ago, ordered the willowy fish. it was battered, deep fried and covered in some sort of bottled pink sweet and sour sauce, topped with a blend of canned fruit - pears, even marachino cherries.

and the spiciness was gone.

it was a sad sad day.

p.s. the opera portraits have been replaced by a sterile wall hanging.

2007-03-16T19:38:00.000-04:00

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your input. Where are you going since Pret à Manger burned down? Anyplace new? Haven't been to Lao Beijing yet, but Mr. Slutsky tells me it's really good.

2007-02-05T23:06:00.000-05:00

Yeah, I have been to Niu Kee since the change of owners and have noticed the difference with a few dishes. Yuxiang Qiezi (the Aubergine and meat) was definitely lacking in intensity and colour, though the Shuizhu section (Water-boiled? I am not sure if that's how they translated it; in any case, the third page of the menu) was still decent.

You probably know this, but there are two other Chinese restaurants that are very good:

Pret-a-Manger, specializing in Cantonese (as well as a few Shanghainese) fare. You should order from the menu with pictures. It's definitely not spicy, but some dishes are really done quite delicately. It's on Ste-Catherine West, after the Faubourg.

Also: Lao Beijing, which has been open a while now (and reviewed in the mirror). They serve a variety of Beijing fare, especially the more folk (as opposed to 'high') cuisine. Cote-des-Neiges.

2007-01-13T00:15:00.000-05:00

hi Fred,
haven't been to Copa's Scratch Kitchen in years, although we used to frequent the place back in the days when Jeremiah cooked there. Maybe we're due for another visit.

hi Anonymous 1,
have fun.

hi Anonymous 2,
frankly, we've been a little afraid to try out the new Niu Kee--afraid of being disappointed. We're gonna have go in with a stiff upper lip sometime soon and just get it over with, though... You know what they say: breaking up is hard to do.

2007-01-13T00:03:00.000-05:00

Hi,

Love your site, please keep it up, it is informative and a joy to read.

Have you tried Niu Kee lately, there seems to be new owners and the food has gone from inferno to mild and it is no longer a delight.

I tried it twice and my friends have also noticed the difference.

2006-12-16T03:13:00.000-05:00

Mmmmmm...

I've been looking for a list like this of "quick" reviews of Montreal restaurant places for a while now.

Thank you so much for doing so much "filtering" and giving your feedback on so many (seemingly) nice spots. :)

Some of these I've already been to, alot I hadn't even heard about yet! I just can't wait to try some of these out...

Hi anonymous,
No Name makes lasagne? I'm there.

Hi VI,
Glad you liked Sur Bleury. Have you been to Titanic and/or Cluny? Both are also very satisfying for lunch. Two of my favorite lunchtime haunts closed down a few years ago now: Café Toman (the one, the only!) and Café Electra. Lunchtime hasn't been the same since. Thank god for oignons confits!
