Montréal's Baguettes...

and once again the west part of Montreal is completely ignored.....
Patisserie de Nancy on monkland is my all time favourite by far

Finding Boga Cidre in Montreal ??

Hello, does anyone know where I could find some BOGA CIDRE in the Montreal area ?
I discovered this drink in Tunisia and it's kinda addicitve .

Jukebox Burgers

went there for the 1st time last night with my wife and 2 months old baby .
all in all we had a very pleasant experience .
Yes it,s a bit pricey for burgers but the quality is here and the quantities are more than decent .
I had the Elvis presley with sourdough and veggie pattie ( did not feel like having meat ....happens ...) with poutine as a side .
huge birger, huge poutine, very tasty and filling .
Root beer was ( free) refilled twice without asking . Nice staff in general.

They made a mistake on my wife's order ( worng burger) but the waitress and manager came over to apologize and replaced it in no time . She gulped her root beer float with a big smile on her face.

It is a family restaurant so it's noisy and lots of kiddy action around ZE jukebox, but it was fine by us because our baby wasn't the noisiest kid around for once...and he loved the place too.
did not get a chance to try the dessert but we will keep that for our next time .
Total bill came to 48 $ tax and tip inc. Yes it's more than what you can expect for a burger joint but we did not mind since we had sucjh a good time .
Will repeat and recommend


work across the street, no construction or renovation action what so ever....don't hold your breath...

Montreal/ CDN: authentic Vietnamenese Cuisine (for Pho AND other dishes)

1st post here but long time viewer and supporter.
I just tried an authentic Vietnamese restaurant on Cote Des Neiges In Montreal
Banh Cuon Dao Vien / 5623A Cote des neiges
I went for dinner hoping to devoure a plate of Banh Cuon, unfortunately they are made fresh daily and were sold out by the time I got to the restaurant ( my bad, I went at 8.30 and the place closes at 9.00).
The owner advised to try chicken lemongrass with noodles and pickled veggies. It was DE LI CI OUS. Reminded me of my youth in France where mey best friend friend was Viet and his parents were feeding us with homemade food based on family recipe. This restaurant is very homie and serves great homemamde and flavoured dish.
I also got a chnce to sample their "3colors" drink to go and I almost had a tear of joy it was so good and fresh.
I found my new authentic Viet place in Montreal and i will go again again and again.

The owner told me about their second location in Brossard where they do fried spring rolls with RICE papers as it is supposed to be .
PS: Their Pho soup seemed to be very tasty too, based on the table next to mine that was slurping their broth and meat and noodles avidly.
I can't wait for the next trial
(If this sounds too good to be true, then it means that I'm a happy customer nothing more)
