Id say equivalent to a 10" sub

Decently priced peanut oil...

If you are willing to buy a pretty big amount go to Au but, Im sure its the best price you will find most likely

Well they only steamed the tortilla before they assembled the burrito. Not sure if you were thinking they steamed it afterwards..

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

yes they did! Although Im not sure if I'd prefer the burrito to be assembled first then put in a sandwich presser type thing instead..

So its pretty good! They had 3 meats and 2-3 veg options. There was a smoked chicken, a brisket and a pulled pork. Not sure about the veg ones, I believe one of them was beans. 9$ for a regular one and 12$ for XL, whole wheat and white wraps. And 1$ extra for Guacamole. I had the smoked chicken, which reminded me more of eating ground beef because of the texture. I enjoyed it though. There are several toppings you can add free of charge like corn, jalapeƱos and beans. In my opinion one of the better burritos Ive had and would return here over the other places like M4 , burrito shop and Jimmy Guaco's mainly because of convenience since I live not too far.

Nice, will go try it tonight and report back

Just gave it another try and had the "palabok" which is rice noodles with pork and shrimp gravy. I enjoyed this dish much more than the last one I had and would have it again.

Tried it on opening night. Picked up take out since all the tables were reserved. I had the Adobo Pork. It was literally pieces of pork and some rice, nothing else. Could of used some more sauce and veggies but not sure how its traditionally served. While it was ok, I just remember feeling unsatisfied with my meal by the end and regretted not ordering more. I will have to try it again but wasnt that impressed with the menu to be honest. Was hoping it would be a tad cheaper as well but nothing is in this area.

Tried it the other day. I used to go to philadephia growing up and had fond memories of eating cheesesteaks, so I had to try it. It was good, nothing extraordinary , but everything was pretty much like what I remembered it being. The biggest problem is that the cheeses they use seem to be processed which may be the way they do it in philly, but to me no processed cheese should ever be used in anything. I would of also liked slightly more meat in my sandwich but it was good overall. Another complaint would be that they close at 7:30pm. This is the type of food I would love to have late at night when Ive got the munchies!

The new hipsters in the Plateau-- L'Gros Luxe and Majestique

Finally got around to trying this place. Went to the new Bernard location. We ordered Avocado fries, Fish burger, beef burger and beet salad. Gotta say I was disappointed with everything I ordered except the avocado fries which were somewhat interesting, but was just battered and fried slices of avocado with a spicy aoili on the side. The beef burger's bread to meat ratio was way off, the fish burger just tasted like Lime juice and the beet salad was the worst of its kind that Ive ever had. Was so bland , had almost no seasoning. Nothing was expensive so I cant complain.. I should of probably ordered some of the tacos which looked better but I've been going to impactaco on Wednesdays for their 1$ tacos and having over 10 at a time so Im just sick of tacos now. Id maybe go back one more time and give it another try but first impression was not great.. Wonder if the other location is any better perhaps?

best ethiopian?

East Africa on Sherbrooke is pretty good but the service is really slow..

Belle et Boeuf

Ya this place doesnt interest me one bit. We didnt need another overpriced burger place.

You can probably achieve a very decent naan bread by cooking it fresh in a really hot oven on a pizza stone if you dont have room for a tandoor oven. The ready made naan bread is quite disappointing.. Otherwise you guys are doing a good job!

ISO Pistachio Ice Cream

Funny you say that , I actually thought the same thing when I ate the bo-bec one, tasted alot like almond extract..

Student Tasty Biryani

Tried it out 2 days in a row. First day I had this tomato based curry , cant remember what it was called. While it wasnt bad, it tasted alot like canned tomato sauce that wasnt cooked down quite enough. It also came with a Dal soup which had a spice in there which I wasnt so familiar with, which was interesting but not the best ive had. And a pickle of some sort that I found to be extremely salty, but I generally dont love indian pickles... The naan bread may have been one of the saddest Ive ever had, they clearly dont have a tandoor oven. Everything was edible though and the price was very reasonable, so I was intrigued to try it again the next night. This time I had the butter chicken and it was pretty good! On par with some of the better ones Ive had, only downfall for me was that it was white meat, but I still enjoyed it. Their rice is well done also. I would return and try more things from the menu, its definetly better than Thali, and a good local cheap late night option for me.

ISO Pistachio Ice Cream

Bo-Bec is actually my go to place usually. I just wasnt too impressed by the pistachio one. Really like their vanilla though. I remember having a coaticook one years ago and thinking it was ok but I cant find it anywhere!

ISO Pistachio Ice Cream

Im looking for the best pistachio ice cream, preferably with actual pistachio's in it. I tried some at bo-bec and was underwhelmed. Any ideas?

Hope they serve fresh Hoddeok!

Student Tasty Biryani

Oh great! cant wait to try it, Dev is also my go to place outside all those other places on jean talon est (which are too far to go to often) So do they only serve different biryani's or they have other dishes as well? I've been to Thali twice and was pretty disappointed both times although many people like it , I just dont see why. Will report back when I try this place

Jimmy Guaco's

Tried it last night and I enjoyed it! Had a small Jimmy G Burrito ( beef and chorizo) Couldnt believe the amount of toppings the offer you, had atleast 12-15 on there which is nuts but I like it. It was a little stuffed but still found to be enjoyable. The choice of meats didnt look as appetizing as burrito shops does but tasted fine. I will return and try more of their offerings soon for sure.

Food Trucks 2014

Wow this year has really been a disappointment for me , even more than last year! Every time I try to go to one I either cant find it or they aren't even there! And the ones I did find werent as good as last year. I had the Duck salad sandwich at Super truck which I really enjoyed last year, but this time there was absolutely no meat in it! And today I tried au pied du cochon which was my favorite one last year, but this year they took away the sandwich and the duck legs and replaced it with basically a hot dog and some fried pork ears. WIll not be returning as neither was impressive. Instead of improving them I feel like they have taken a step backwards.. Any other ones worth trying ??

BBQ Sud Ouest corner of Notre Dame & Greene

Had it again tonight and those sauces are really gross.. They really need to start making their own, all I can taste is sugar or actually probably corn syrup. Pretty nasty...

BBQ Sud Ouest corner of Notre Dame & Greene

Main complaint about this place are those sauces they use. First of all they are store bought and they display that on top of it, and second of all they are overly sweet imo. The potatoes could also be a little better. Otherwise for the price its really not bad and one of the better options in st henri. First time around I got the rib sandwich, and the second time I got a pulled pork sandwich. Both not bad but tasted very similar. Its not the best place but a nice addition to the neighbourhood Id say.

Hole in the wall inside Kam Fung mall

Ive been several times. Its not as small as you think, there are atleast 10 tables or more. The prices are soo cheap its crazy, and the food is not bad. I usually get the bbq pork on rice, or sometimes this soup with bbq pork and yellow noodles, both are about 5$.

Moonshine BBQ

This is what happens to all these BBQ places I find, they start off strong, then get lazy and start taking shortcuts and the food suffers!

Green Papayas, where to find

They have them in chinatown.. Check the markets there, like Marche Pap Pap possibly

Heading to Bundang South korea, any suggestions??

Im going for over a month, need some good suggestions to eat around there or seoul area please!

Korean food update

Ive been to many of them and Hwang Kum is the best one. Shabu shabu was pretty decent before but the head chef left a month or two ago, all the other ones Ive tried are pretty horrible, Ganadara is ok but mainly because its cheap compared to the others. Im pretty familiar with korean food as my girlfriend comes from and lives in Korea so trust me.. I havent tried Omma, Atti or Maison seoul though all of which I heard from other people as being good choices. 5000 ans is garbage and maison bulgogi is not run by koreans so dont go there..

Smoked Salmon/Lox

She specifically asked for one in the west island, not laval or atwater market.. Just sayin...

Smoked Salmon/Lox

There is this fish market on sources near the 40, its called pecheur du marche, they house smoke it , its very good, but very oily as to be expected..
