Cheval or Beef Tartare Tonight?

My favourite beef tartare is at Holder on McGill. My second favourite is at Verses in Old Montreal

Indian food in downtown

oops - I must take more time reading posts!

If Devi is still around, on Cresecent, I had a great tasting meal there once. Haven't been there in a couple years though, but it was quite good.

Indian food in downtown

I really like Thali on St. Marc, just above St. Catherine for an Indian Lunch. Family business, nothing fancy, but great food, and the butter chicken isn't sickly sweet the way I find many to be made. They make it nicely spicy, which is a personal preference of mine. You'll get a complete meal for $12 or under.

FIRST TIME VISIT TO MONTREAL - WHERE TO EAT FOR ONLY 3 NIGHTS?

Agreed - It would be sad for anyone to judge Montreal's food by eating at Food Courts.

Rubs Smokehouse

Six of us went to Diablos last night for a late dinner after a film and were absolutely delighted with the place. We did a lot of starter-sharing, The chicken tenders were so moist, with a smoky slight-spicy flavour which was perfect. The jalapeno poppers were the very best (and hottest) any of us have ever had. We had the pulled pork sliders, which was a perfect amount of tender pulled pork on cornbread sliders. Really great change from a bun. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone and not too sweet. The fried pickles were are only disappointment. They were good, but we've had better in the South. Maybe it's just me. I prefer a cornflour sort of batter, and a spicy dipping sauce.
The service was attentive and fun. All in all, we had a great time, and will be going back. There were a lot of items on their menu that sounded worth trying. Prices were reasonable as well.

Porc and fennel sausage

I wouldn't really call myself an expert - but I've always been fond of the European shops along St. Laurent. There are a few near Schwartz's - Slovenia is one of them - can't think of the names of others.

Porc and fennel sausage

I know what you mean, but I find for things like pizza toppings, even if I buy the sausage from the butcher at Metro or IGA, and spice it up a bit, while it's frying (I also smash chili flakes with the fennel seed) it's really not so bad.

Where can I find a cheap, new fridge in montreal?

Craig's list is always worth a try as well. Good luck.

Porc and fennel sausage

I also love a lot of fennel in my sausages - and I'll tell you what I do. I buy some regular "Hot" Italian sausages from the butcher. Then when I crumble them and fry them in the pan, before putting them on the pizza, I smash some fennel seeds with a mallet, and throw them in the pan with the sausage. Makes all the difference. Hope this helps you.

Taro in Montreal?

http://marchehawai.com/index.php/page...

I was thinking you could contact Marche Hawaii by email - they should have it - although they are off the beaten track, on the outskirts of Montreal. They have a great web-page though.

Taro in Montreal?

I would imagine at any good grocer in Chinatown. If I'm passing by there I'll

stop in and check. But I'd be surprised if someone doesn't carry it.

Canadian Thanksgiving in Montreal: Where and what to eat

As well as the Montrealais Restaurant in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, a traditional Thanksgiving Turkey dinner is also put on by the Globe Restaurant. The Globe would be a bit more expensive, but has a trendier, more lively atmosphere. Most hotel dining rooms provide a Thanksgiving meal for out-of-towners. THe Ritz Carlton always did.Again, the Ritz would be the most expensive of the 3. But they have a new chef/restaurant now, so you should check. In any case, you would want to reserve for dinner wherever you end up going.
