café 8oz. just opened a couple days ago at 5851 st-hubert at the old audiorama just south of plaza st-hubert. nearby there's café fixe. from what i got from their instagram account, it seems they are carrying patrice pâtissier goods

slightly toasted but then, i wouldn't have known if you didn't said so

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

that looks way more appetizing and not quiznos-ish than what i got. there's place for improvement. hopefully, it'll be better otherwise, its just an alternative to subway but there's no subway in the neighborhood so, i don't know

finally got to try it. its good, best part being the bread. was really messy to it with the cheese oozing everywhere. in terms of how it looked, it looks more like this, http://mtltimes.ca/social-life/le-phi... than the other picture we got. as for the shill pictures, most likely double steak.

i may be wrong but it reminds me of quiznos somewhat (bread size, taste)

café sardine and iwashi closed yesterday. café sardine is moving to 5386 Saint-Laurent and will be Maison Sociale

and the iwashi staff is moving to Thazard at 5329 Saint-Laurent

yep. really sad looking. someone just put another picture. it looks better but i don't trust people with 1 "review"

and restaurants that put pictures on facebook/twitter. its purely marketing. totally deceiving

Fortune taco

indeed. took me a while to find the place as its quite dim there. its right next to the massage parlor, much easier that way

i just saw some pictures.. man, do they skim on meat. there's barely any

ALATI CASERTA PATISSERIE BEST CANNOLIS IN TOWN

i must have been unlucky. of the 6 i got, only 2 were great (ricotta and pistachio) and the other 4 were a bit soggy including the 2nd pistachio i got

ALATI CASERTA PATISSERIE BEST CANNOLIS IN TOWN

half price?!? oh man! didn't know, thanks!

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

so its good but not great. i was about to try it but there's taste mtl that've been keeping me away.. the opening hours suck and they're closed on sunday, that i don't understand. i'd close on monday instead

Bacon & Mason

yeah, its pretty good! their tcb (tomato, cabbage (slaw) and bacon) which is a play on blt. got that with a side of mac n cheese and one of the lemonade of the day which was orange

the thick slice of bacon makes the difference. its tender and the fat *drool*

Where to take visiting friends from Chicago

bunch of guys? i'd say joe beef is worth considering and O&G is worth the lineup

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

sure!

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

didn't asked about what they were offering grocery wise but did grab one of their sandwich and mac n cheese during lunch time. that thick slice of bacon, its so good! its pork heaven. not too expensive either. a trio (sandwich, side and drink) is $12 + tax. they have a daily special and from what they told me, daily menu

and if you want, they have homemade hot sauce you can try

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

phillies cheesesteak is officially opening tomorrow. passed by when i went to bacon & mason and saw the blackboard and staff were going over stuff

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

d'oh, my bad! guess i skipped the section names..

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

so i tried the place. portion size is food truck portion size at food truck price if i can say so. kinda reminds me of grumman. its good but it feels more like a snack than anything else. i didn't tried the tacos but saw people next to me get that. i got the grits instead (which is actually $7). if you want to make a meal out of grits, you'd need at least 3 serving.

anyway, they are considering doing delivery in a very near future and they have their opening party coming in november

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

yeah. same. i did bought fresh coconut though. it was like $1 each

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

haven't seen much changes at the taco joint on bélanger. the only new thing i saw was that outside stand selling inexpensive fresh coconut water (the whole straw in coconut drink thingy) or limes in bulk

i don't think they have the stand now as its pretty cold outside

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

they had a private party recently but no, not open to the public yet. you can call to pre-order but that's pretty much it for now

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

they posted a picture of their menu. tacos are $4.50 to $5.50, the rolls are $9 to $10

kale salad is $6, the grits are $10. question is is it 1 taco or 2?

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

officially opening this monday, october 27.

so had time to try them (a couple of times), overcooked burger and soggy fries. took like 25 minutes to cook a patty that wasn't that much thicker than a big mac patty. fries were just sitting there waiting for the burger to be done. place still has the old café feel, it just has a new coating. certainly doesn't feel like a restaurant or fast food joint

they still serves alcohol like they used to as well as café

Bar Brutus (Beaubien) - Bacon Bar

apparently, they are going to open for lunch in a near future. could be better?

Bar Brutus (Beaubien) - Bacon Bar

its ok. i've went a couple of times since opening (including opening night). service is fast enough (was sitting at the bar) food is decent, poutine being the better choice. the hot pig is underwhelming. its a pork sausage but their picture made it look like it was wrapped in bacon, it wasn't. the corn dog wasn't that much better. the bacon donut, way too sweet. i've had better with léché and trou de beigne.

drinks are not bad. there's a bit more ice than you would like but it is what it is.

ambiance is loud and they are now showing hockey (habs) so i'm definitely not going back now.

all in all, lots of hype, underwhelming

Best pressed hot dog/poutine?

i find la banquise to be too hit and miss lately. the other choices are good though especially paul patates despite it being pricey than most

Food Events 2014

there's an oyster party at café international on october 30th, a 6 services meal for $85 + tax. looks not bad at all
