APDC's Sugar Shack - Benefit dinner

usually, those kind of events attract the jetsetting community and not the regular mister and misses of this town/province but since its apdc, i don't know. as for "foodies", if they get in free, they'd come but shelling twice the normal price to attend something, even though it'll be a worthy cause?

twinkie83 in Quebec (inc. Montreal)

Berri/UQAM area - 2014

yep. they were pretty consistent when they opened but since then, i don't know what happened

Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal?

i like pizza week on the other hand. last year, they had 2 very limited places free workshop where we ended up tasting multiple pizzas. well, nicola travaglini had like 6 different pizzas to try. it was so good

i wonder if GEMA's going to join in this year

Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal?

yeah, italian week is pretty bad in terms of food and there's only one food competition. i hope cornetteria will do something this weekend like last year and their cronetto burger

Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal?

went back to Nicola Travaglini for some bombolone. first thing that struck me, they are bigger, looks more like a ball, a bit pricier ($3) and filled to order. had a choice between pastry cream and nutella. they still have the jam one.

they are not bad at all but i wished they had some ricotta filling. they'd be better

Montreal breakfast

J&C is ok in terms of coffee. if OP is going to the prince-arthur location, there's Kitsuné next door that does really great coffee. i don't know if it comes in a bowl but coffee is what they do good

Why are there no depanneurs in Chinatown?

isn't because of zoning or something like that? anyway, chinatown is a very special case where not every law applies there

Ice Cream Chat 2013

speaking of new ice cream shop, there's la diperie who does dips on avenue des pins near st-laurent. the soft serve is ok, nothing to stand out but the dips are good enough to merit a stop. you get a choice of dip and topping to go with your soft serve. some interesting dips like cheesecake, bailey's and for toppings, they have pistachio nuts which is always a winner for me.

with ripples nearby, its hard to recommend this place but if you have kids or looking for interesting dips, you should stop there. and its cheap enough

Ice Cream Chat 2013

my bad but at the same time, you can't get it anymore. we're going to get a new combo tomorrow since they are closed today

yes, i have marked my calendar at every 2 weeks interval..

Ice Cream Chat 2013

the soft serve is la quebecoise, their latest soft serve combo. the new one is out this week since la quebecoise has been out for 2 weeks (they change every 2 weeks)

Portuguese Festival

matsuri is the same event every year. nothing special when it comes to food besides saka-ba being there doing cold ramen or should i say just noodles? price is still cheap but its the exact same. found the dog to be quite salty but they were quite salty in the past. they did toast the buns though

Portuguese Festival

i passed by earlier today and nothing stood out. there's pierogi, sauerkraut, sausage on a stick and some smoked meat. price wise, i prefer the church sale on st-viateur as its cheaper and homemade

Portuguese Festival

dead as in not a lot of people so no lineups. well, that was at 1pm today. i know that tomorrow will be crowded pretty much all day because of mass

Portuguese Festival

that must be why because it was weird seeing them be out when they only started around 4pm

today around 1pm, it was pretty much dead. tomorrow is going to be crazy though

Portuguese Festival

the wine comes either in a glass or you can get a 1L bottle. is it homemade? its like $20 if i remember correctly.

and there was a lot of people this evening. bread station took 30 minutes and the lineup wasn't big at all. imagine tomorrow and sunday. lots of people were getting the skewers on the other hand. they actually ran out by 730pm

Food Truck Reports - 2014

yeah, really bad layout. should have put most trucks on maisonneuve street as it was pretty empty there

T&T Tacos and Tortas

wait, its now only 3 tacos? no more 4

Food Truck Reports - 2014

yeah. i got to try the drumstick. its big, its good. not great but i'm not complaining. i enjoyed it

Fish & chips food truck

there's no fish and chips on wheels even though there's trucks selling seafood (oysters, lobster rolls, fish tacos)

T&T Tacos and Tortas

yep. i love impactaco especially on wednesday with their $1 taco. they do the job real good when one is craving tacos. for me, T&T is more with friends or when i want to drink alcohol and have a relaxing moment when eating.

impactaco is just too, i'd say, fast food-ish. great food but that vibe

T&T Tacos and Tortas

it's a sit down and takeout too

T&T Tacos and Tortas

they might increase the price to $3. the 3 churros together is about the same size as a regular one and $2.50 is about the right price

Montreal Specifics

indeed. both may be in pineapples but they are definitely not the same kind of cocktail. there seems to be more thought and care in le mal necessaire than tiki

QDC Burger

just got back from qdc and took a picture of the menu. its like we all talk about it but no picture of the menu.. so i did. and i got some onion rings too. they're good but the batter didn't stick to the onions. they should really think about tossing them in flour before battering them up

the menu, https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BstAraKCY...

saw someone get the 1/3lb and it looked really good!

Montreal Specifics

gotcha! i should have read better

Montreal Specifics

technically, you need to eat to be allowed to drink at a park but cops are usually lenient on that

Food Truck Reports - 2014

i tried Zoe's during the F1 weekend on monkland. prepping took forever but the food was good. the pulled chicken was definitely different from the pulled pork. tasty but a bit slightly dry

and recently, i tried the ribs poutine of le smoking bbq at the food fest for the just for laughs fest. portion was huge! the meat was tender, falling off the bone. the sauce was sweet though. would have prefer some heat to it. as for the poutine, its good not great. cost was $14

now, i have my eyes on that turkey leg from pas d'cochon dans mon salon. it's apparently big

marché des possibles is more of a pop puces fair set outside than a real market itself. its interesting but if you ever went to a pop puces fair, its basically that but outdoor
