Yeah I saw that write-up in Mtl Times before my visit. My Philly Cheesesteak was similar except no mushrooms & maybe slightly less steak. Was your bread toasted? The people in our tables, some got their bread toasted, some didn't get bread toasted(my Philly Cheesesteak was toasted but barely).

I could of eaten two full size Phillies Cheesesteak sandwiches on my visit. The onions was totally tasteless(didn't even look or tasted fried).

So I tried Le Phillies Cheesesteak. Ultimately it was a letdown, considering the mini-hype from the Montreal Eater write-up. Tried their Philly cheesesteak with onions & Provolone. The Provolone was melted however on my version I got. It about 10 inches long. The best about it, was the bread.

From reading up, most of the better Philly establishments would have processed cheese whiz & provolone as cheese options(another is American cheese which Le Phillies Cheesesteak also offers as a cheese option from checking their menu online). Their posted online menu doesn't list their prices. What kind of prices for their Philly cheesesteaks? It's about 14-inches long(one size only)?

Willing to try this new Phillies cheesesteak next coming days & give us some feedback? Curious if it's good, before I decide if I want to check it out or not.

Brigade Pizza is officially open

What neapolitan pizza can you have in Montreal that's still very good for takeout(maybe none).

I'm reconsidering my criticism of Lawrence butchershop after your postings. Don't mind to be proven wrong. What I said before, is my observations from my visits(maybe 6-7 visits past year). And I do ask questions when I'm there.

Right hand side when I go in. I'll give them another try soon. Maybe I'm mistaken.

I will credit Lawrence butcher shop for getting different cuts of beef of Quebec Wagyu, after finding out from you they were carrying it. I checked afterwards, to see what they carrying(impressed).

The non-frozen beef stuff is Rheintal. I've seen their frozen beef at Lawrence butcher shop(unless my memory is off), although I'm not certain it's from Runaway Creek Farm).

That's why I'm hopeful, this Philly Cheesesteak has a chance to be authentic & very good.

Runaway Creek Farm I think Lawrence butcher shop gets their meats in frozen. The third beef supplier I think is Rheintal. I've seen Rheintal meat products at Organic food places in Montreal. I saw it at a Organic food shop yesterday on Sherbrooke West(can't remember their name). Also seen it at Tau regularly.

Thanks for the tipoff from you on Quebec Wagyu, being available at Lawrence butcher shop(I didn't know). I've never seen it at Lawrence butcher shop before. Everytime I asked for anything with more marbling there, I'm told there's not much marbling in the beef they carry. Apparently Lawrence butcher are still carrying Quebec Wagyu & it's hormone free etc. I just heard. I've seen Quebec Wagyu beef at two establishments so far(a Brossard butcher shop & Fou D'Ici in downtown).

The beef that Lawrence is carrying other places in Montreal were also carrying. Their beef is over-rated. Hardly any marbling in their beef. Just because it's so called ethical butchery meat, the beef doesn't have to be so lean.

It's not an odd concept(it's been served in Montreal & many other places in North America). Just that not many establishments outside of Philly do it very well.

Yep, that's the case according to Montreal Eater piece. One of them Stephen Shiller, I remember years ago doing those very very cheesy annoying TV commercials with his father on local Montreal television for their business.

Best Souvlaki in Montreal???

OK, I just checked above for your comment regarding Elatos. Which meat of Elatos you thought was very good(their gyro or souvlaki)? They're primary known for their gyro(I've eaten at Elatos 2-3 times, only tried their gyro, no souvlaki).

Best Souvlaki in Montreal???

You're talking about the lamb souvlaki at Yia Sou that's tender & well seasoned(you're not talking about Elatos which you haven't been to yet)?

Crystal Chinois is yes more expensive, but not crazy more expensive.

Good Chinese in cote des neiges area?

Their clientele is mostly Asian(as opposed to Kam Shing with almost no Asian clientele)?

Montreal restaurants with vegetarian options, including a special-occasion place?

Last time I checked(if I remember correctly), Schwartz's Deli next door(generally for take-out only of Schwartz's Deli food), has spicy brown deli mustard for sale.

Cronuts?

As Glaff just posted it's made by Dliche. I don't think Dliche hides it, that it's also sold there.
