Café Smile - Portuguese bar and grill in Mile End?

i walk by a lot when i go to mile-end or plateau and the place is almost always empty

i believe it went through some renovations last summer. they have some interesting promos but with so much interesting restaurants in the neighborhood, it's hard choosing

the pretzel shop on mont-royal is now dirty dog, a hotdog gourmet place. it's opening soon

and impasto is branching off with a new restaurant nearby, gema which will offer pizza and apps, http://montreal.eater.com/archives/20...

no idea on when they'll open

Food Trucks 2014

i did see the difference. i don't expect cheap hotdogs at 99 cents but more than $6 for one? that's ludicrous

but then, it comes up to your point, portion size for the asking price

anyway, what most food trucks are offering is considered fast food. it may be made with quality ingredients or comes with foie gras but it doesn't change what it is

but most trucks did offer fast-food at a non fast-food price. the only thing missing was the red sausage meat

Food Trucks 2014

last year was a pilot to test the market for food trucks. it was a hit. about the price, i am sure that it was from customers feedback. let's face it, some of the trucks did charge a ridiculous price

i have no problem with the city asking patrons to lower the price or offer cheaper items

la banquise is part of the participating restaurants, nice. the donut poutine is intriguing and disgusting at the same time

it's yelp, reviewed by someone who opened an account just to trash the restaurant and it was for a pre-launch. can't get more useless than that

a problem with smartphone and its resolutions. the smaller the resolution, the smaller the file so one can store more photos hence the smaller photo. but yes, it annoys the hell out of me too

they can go bigger but they'll take less photo but then, with instagram and the likes, that shouldn't be a problem

Restaurant Orange Rouge

you thought right. tea is free at chinese restaurants but this is japanese tea so i'm guessing there's a price for that
