ISO pistachio cream

Thank you Elizabeth! It's a shame to read that Gaudeo closed, we thought it was great. The pistacchio cream we had was sweet, we thought it was mixed with condensed milk rather than olive oil. Is the cream you're talking about sweet at all?

Btw we bought your food app for Rome and it was of great help, thanks a lot!

ISO pistachio cream

Hi everyone,

Last year in Rome we had the most delicious panini at Gaudeo - one of them filled with a heavenly pistachio cream. We bought a jar of that cream to bring home and have just finished it, but now realize we didn't keep the label. Does anyone know that product?

ISO: stomach

Hi all,

Does anyone know where we can find some beef or lamb stomach? Not sure if it's the right term in English - "panse" is what we're looking for. We didn't find any at Boucherie Lawrence or the standard supermarkets.


Montreal/Quebec City for Vegetarians

Byblos comes highly recommended by my vegetarian sister-in-law, particularly for breakfast / brunch.

Korean Rice Cakes in Montreal?

They serve ok tteokbokki at Atti on University. But don't get your hopes up, Korean food isn't all that great in Montreal, although it seems to be improving.

Sushi, not too expensive.

We always had good sushi at Furusato (previously known as Osaka) on Bleury. Not expensive.

(Yet another) 42 Hours in Montreal... What would you choose?

Drinks at Pullman are always nice and it's conveniently located.
I would suggest Les 400 Coups for Friday night if Le P'tit Plateau doesn't work for you. Or Joe Beef, but that place is booked for the next 27 years.

Cheval or Beef Tartare Tonight?

Marché 27 makes pretty good tartares. They have a location right on Phillips Square but I prefer the one on Price Arthur.

Best Montreal Restaurant For Lamb?

The tandoori lamb tapa at Biarritz is pretty awesome - just like the rest of the menu.
