I was under the impression, wood-fired ovens are disallowed in Montreal-area for new establishments, unless they take over an old establishment with pre-existing wood burning oven.

On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if I go to the restaurant itself, their menu would be French only. I've been to West Island restaurants, where majority is English customers, but menu is only in French. I would make sure it's in both French and English if running a restaurant, no matter where in Montreal-area.

anyone eaten at Schwartz's in Montreal recently? [moved from Ontario board]

No. It's made for them according to their specs. I still prefer Snowdon Deli smoked meat over everybody else.

eggs rolls

Just heard a radio commercial on Montreal radio earlier this week for Yangtze restaurant(it's still around). Presumably it's same one mentioned by JerkPork here.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

I would like to see the proof. Not that it's not possible. Last I heard, Queue de Cheval wasn't using Pat LaFrieda. It's was the 1221 Steakhouse in it's brief run, that used Pat LaFrieda.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

Yep nowhere in the Montreal Eater story does it say dry aged. Also on the package, nowhere does it say dry aged. I suspect, the steaks never go through Moishes Steakhouse. It's just produced for them, under their name. The steaks at Moishes Steakhouse, are individually cut & dry-aged by the steakhouse.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

It's much more expensive sourcing US beef, than Canadian beef.

Moishes's beef source comes from the US(not Alberta).

There's a big overlap, because Pakistani use to be part of India.

Piazza Tomasso's "Pizza Plus"

You're talking about the frozen food business(Piazza Tomasso pizzas)? DaVinci Foods is also originally a spinoff of a Montreal Italian restaurant/pizzeria.

Piazza Tomasso's "Pizza Plus"

The restaurant is not still around. Closed more than 20 years ago. That's a spin-off(frozen food business). Don't know if any of the family members are still involved in this operation.

Any exceptional Montreal South shore restaurants?

Did you inquire if they're closing soon? It's now March. I'd asked them more than once(not the owner), who insisted they're not closing anytime soon. The $23,95 chicken rice is one of the specials, that's only written in Chinese(heads up for people looking for it).

Saka-Ba!

It's still a soft opening. I'm guessing they're still experimenting with their menu.

That weird pan asian place, is owned by the Harmonie Bakery at last notice(I ate there once just to try their Hainanese chicken rice).

Afterwards posting I realized it's their Hainanese chicken rice. There's a picture of it on their Facebook page. The dish is enough for two people.

I'll check it out. If it was $23-28 that's outrageously expensive for Haikkan chicken rice dish. This dish would be listed on their full menu? It's not listed on their condensed menu that I have already.

Not saying your information is incorrect with Papa Jackie. Was just saying what they told me, when I inquired there.

Jing Hua partners were not the original owners of the restaurant? I remembered they switch to new owners about 3 years ago?

I asked Papa Jackie today, & was told they're "NO" plans to close anytime soon. Is it reliable source that's telling you they're closing soon?

Jing Hua restaurant just closed? Checked them out today, On their door, it says they're closed for 5 days for renovations. For dim sum & dinner I prefered Jing Hua over Maison Kam Fung Brossard.

OK. I didn't know about their Facebook page until two days ago(only discovered from link above). I have their take-out menu for years but it's limited to what they list(some of the food on their Facebook page I didn't know they served it).
