Chalet BBQ vs. Cote St Luc BBQ

Thank you all so much for replying, it's interesting for me to read what you have to say, so many nuances. I haven't had time yet to reply in depth but will do so... thanks

Chalet BBQ vs. Cote St Luc BBQ

I'm interested in hearing which one people prefer!

I have recently ordered in from both restaurants, and holy moly, I was blown away by the difference in quality. Chalet BBQ's food was superior in taste and quality....as was the delivery wait time, and the temperature of the food when it arrived.

Cote St. Luc BBQ's chicken was sweeter, which I prefer, however the skin and tenderness of the chicken from Chalet BBQ made up for that. I feel like CSL BBQ gave me "leftovers", whereas Chalet actually cooked a chicken.

Biscoff/Speculoos spread

Yes, the crunchy one was the one I bought on Monkland ave. Funny because that grocery store is so limited in everything else.. It was truly a random find.

Biscoff/Speculoos spread

It's very sweet and you have to like gingerbread... I wouldn't make a sandwich with it but just eat it plain off the spoon.

Biscoff/Speculoos spread

It's delicious and so addictive, but I ate too much in one sitting that I'm kind of turned off from it at the moment.
I have seen it at the Provigo on Monkland

Lime popsicles

I know summer's almost over, but does anyone know a grocery store that sells lime popsicles? They used to make these when I was a kid..

Bachelorette party dinner?

I'm looking for recommendations for something downtown or in Old Montreal... Approximately 10 people. Not overpriced but "in" these days?! I have no major restrictions on food type - sorry this is so vague, but I am trying to help someone plan an event and I have no idea where to start -- any suggestions very much welcome!

delivery food request: help a girl and her man out?

Thank you all for the responses. I didn't want to go with CSL BBQ because the last time i went there my friend ordered the club and she said it was terrible and such a let down. I went with B&M.

Sidenote, I'm from NY and I think delivery options in MTL need major improvements. :/

delivery food request: help a girl and her man out?

My boyfriend is home with an injury and all he wants is a club sandwich with not cheap/crap-o ingredients, and/or something with bacon in panini form. Any ideas of where to call in the Hampstead/CSL/NDG area? I wish Joe's Panini's delivered! Thanks guys :)

Grocery store cookies

I love Dad's. The classic oatmeal, nothing chewy or with raisins/etc.

Grocery store cookies

You're right, that's the difference between them. I like Rainbow Chips Ahoy or Triple Chocolate Chips Ahoy better than PC. But the regular chips ahoy are blah

Grocery store cookies

Good oatmeal cookies can be found in the grocery store's baked goods section (ie "Fresh")... Metro usually. Sometimes IGA and provigo. I also like Provigo's own baked "hermit cookies" and "icebox cookies" (shortbread with walnuts and dried fruit)

What's the word on Wings N Things? Are they reopening and who is behind it?

i remember that when i was a kid i loved their potato skins. in hindsight i can imagine the crap quality they must have been, but at age 8...

I just looked at the menu on their fb page. So unhealthy and am I just blind or do they not even have potato skin even more?!??!

fish & chips?

I think they're really good at Ye Old Orchard Pub on Monkland. ESPECIALLY the fish. Not too greasy, homemade beer batter recipe for frying.

Stole the idea from the "Grocery store ice cream favorites!!" thread...

Am just curious to know what your favorite flavours and brands are.

Always looking to try something new!

smoked meat - lesser of two evils

Definitely Dunn's.

FYI had their prepackaged smoked meat the other day and was very impressed that it was as good as it was.

Chobani yogurt - available in Montreal?

That's interesting about the year long trial period. Didn't know that...

I've seen it (variety of flavours, too!) at Provigo on Monkland and IGA Atwater....I'm sure it's in other places too.
