Rocky Mountain Oysters/ Other rare organ meats in GBA?

I'm wondering where one could buy rocky mountain oysters and other organ meats (beyond the common liver/tripe) in the Boston area. Brain, adrenals, sweetbreads, anywhere to buy these would also be great.

Also, are rocky mountain oysters sold from bulls or just calves?

Sports bar with good food, late kitchen to watch the fight this Saturday: Impossible?

I've watched dozens of MMA events at sports bars since moving here, and Champs is the only bar I've been charged a cover at.

I forgot about Cages aux Sports, which I'd put somewhere between Station/Champs. Same quality food/drinks as Station at a higher price. Unfortunately this chain still beats Champs' price/quality pretty easily.

La Station Des Sports is excellent, plenty of high-def TVs and what may be the cheapest drinks in the city. The food is decent for bar food, but is also very cheap. However, it has been pretty packed lately, so I wouldn't be surprised if the excellent prices rapidly become a thing of the past (now that they have a customer base.) I'd still highly recommend it, but go early. You can be as drunk as you like and completely stuffed spending <$20.

There's a sports bar on the top floor of the Pepsi forum which is pretty nice (Forum Sports?) It has bowling lanes, pool tables, and a nice style to it. The food is a step up from normal bar chow, nothing amazing, but I remember seeing frog's legs and other 'haute' selections for a sports bar. Costs a bit more, but it's still fairly priced and usually not too crowded.

Champs I'm going to have a hard time recommending unless you're near it on St. Laurent and really don't want to travel. They charge covers, $5+, even charged 5 for Affliction last Saturday and the place was barely at 20% capacity. The food is some of the most bland bar food I've had, and it unfortunately correlates with the highest sports bar prices I've seen. I'd stay away from Champs; I'm sure it has it's fans, but with the other choices out there there's no real reason to spend your money here, especially if you want to eat / drink.

Favorite delivery for Mcgill/Lower Plateau area?

Thanks for all the replies guys, looks like I've got a lot of eating to do. I was also just ordering from Santangelo's, who told me about orderin.ca. It has a ton of restaurants for my zip and apparently there's absolutely no extra charge. Hope that helps someone, I know alacarte express etc. always charge pretty ridiculous extra fees.

Favorite delivery for Mcgill/Lower Plateau area?

Just moved over here from Rue Crescent, so I still have a few old stand bys (Bardeco, Amelios, Boustan) but I was figuring I'd have a bunch of new options up here. I've tried a few places from flyers (Werby's...) and was let down.

Anybody have any favorites for delivery? I'm open to pretty much all types of cuisine, though I am a student so preferably not anything too expensive(not that Bardeco/Amelios are exactly cheap.) I also have an enormous appetite, so pizza usually is a better option than sushi, though if it's reasonably priced...

Sugar Free / Low Carb Bakeries / Restos

Does anyone know of any bakeries that will cook with whole grains and splenda / other sugar substitutes?

I suppose it's a pretty small market to cater to, but if somebody could point me the way to a sugar free/ low GI doughnut or German chocolate cake I'd be forever grateful. I figure there's got to at least be one pastry chef around comfortable substituting a few ingredients.

Virgin Coconut Oil

Anyone know where I can get a jar/tub of Virgin Coconut oil in downtown Montreal? Perhaps I'm missing somewhere obvious, but I haven't been able to find any.

deep dish pizza in Montreal !?

So does anyone know of a place that serves legitimate deep-dish pizza here? Between Bardeco and Amelio's I'm happy with the pizza here (and those are both thick pies) but I still haven't seen any real deep-dish pizza on offer in the city.

Well, Domino's offers a "deep dish pizza" AFAIK, but I don't consider Domino's pizza...

Where to buy plain, fresh made crepes en masse?

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I found some packaged crepes bretones in a 'Metro' grocery over on St Laurent I think. They taste like playdough (d'oh) so I'm giving in and trying to make some myself.

He is probably thinking about 'Avesta.' I've been down that route to Atwater dozens of times and seen the lady making the pita-like bread, never seen a creperie there.

I could walk 30 seconds in any direction from my apartment and find maybe 6-8 cafes selling crepes, but they're all $6+. It seems strange there's nowhere to buy the crepes like one would buy a bunch of fresh croissants or something.

I'm looking for somewhere that I could pick up about 5-10 crepes made fresh for a reasonable price in the downtown area. I'm aware of many restaurants/cafes that serve crepes, but prices range from ~$5 and up for a single crepe; I'm looking more for a bakery or something that would sell them cheaper.

I'm by St.Catherine/Crescent downtown. None of the groceries around me seem to sell plain crepes (or am I blind?)
