but that place is for rent. i see a sign (for rent) every time i pass by

Food Events 2015

i prefer the one at GEMA as it is less sweet and more tart than Cornetteria. and there's the fact that it is made to order so it stays crispy longer. its the one thing i don't like about Cornetteria as pastries tend to sit there and get soggy unless you get there early in the morning

Local colas: 1642 and bec-cola

i tried the 1642 cola and it's not bad at all. expensive though. they are pretty easy to drink. i get a faint but enjoyable maple syrup finish. while drinking it, i get a maraschino cherry taste. must be the cola and maple syrup flavors mixing together to give me such impression

i bought it at le petit coin épicerie. figure that if i'm going to support a local business, might as well buy it from the charming little grocery store

that's why they call it Zeppole di San Giuseppe. Bottega are supposed to do it too but haven't heard anything else since yesterday morning

Food Events 2015

marché jean-talon has a mini cabane à sucre event on march 28 from 11am to 2pm

Uniburger Week

good way to celebrate. on top of that, its happening during mac n cheese week.. that's a lot of carbs

Food Events 2015

there's restaurant day this sunday across town. its pretty fun and interesting

The New & Improved Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

its official, its a starbucks. the sign is not up yet but its all papered on the windows..

Food Events 2015

i share the feeling. it'd be great if we can just get the best of something event instead of paying for exclusivity. kind of sick of it

Food Events 2015

there's an event this weekend, la grande tournée du chocolat chaud. part of the proceeds (of the hot chocolate sale) goes to tablée des chefs. the shops participating use valhrona chocolate so if you don't like barry, here's an event for a good cause

let's not forget mcdonalds. their coffee is pretty good, in term of chains. if you need coffee late at night, tim's and mcdonalds should do the trick. the neighborhood needs another 3rd wave coffee shop

The New & Improved Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

... not really surprising considering the neighborhood is buzzing but its definitely not needed. a tim horton's is already enough. it doesn't need another lousy coffee franchise

and we have poutine week during the first week of february, 1st to 8th

Cooking classes

i can confirm mezza luna is both. they will tend towards one language depending on the class attendees but they do bilingual. worst case, they do translate for those who don't understand

Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

@lagatta, yeah, there's another restaurant and it'll be at the QV location right next to moustache café. hopefully, no more restaurants opening in that stretch because its starting to be saturated. and that's without considering the coffee shop that opened recently (village café)

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

i got one to try. for $7, can't say no. for a generic brand, this is not bad at all. i'd even say quite good

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

yep. days are getting longer now as the 21st is the shortest day of the year

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

since we're talking about panettone, i spot freshly made one at san marco near fabre station. didn't asked how much and i don't know if they are any good but they were definitely made fresh

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

thanks. there's indeed only 2 sizes. only the small ones are for sale this weekend. all the big ones are already reserved.. got it first thing this morning. seeing the shelves full of panettone was a lovely sight

Where can I buy a goose in Montreal?

you can find goose in JTM. its frozen. i don't remember the name of the shop but its near Porc Meilleur

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

yep, its right beside Park. all his restaurants are nearby the original no?

Food Events 2014

so i had the chance to go and its very underwhelming. if you're in the neighborhood passing by, stop a bit otherwise, i wouldn't go out of my way for it

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

how much are they?

Pizzeria GEMA

thanks for the post. when i saw it, i just finished eating so had to hit the gym quickly (so i could eat some more) and then literally ran over there because i didn't want to miss the plaza st-hubert défilé des rêves lol.. from what i can tell, it looks like i was the only one who tried it. it was pretty good. the pomegranate gave it that little burst of sweetness. would have loved to tried that all dressed. pizza was $16

Saturday brunch around Jean-Talon market / mile end

definitely lawrence otherwise salmigondis or julieta

Food Truck Reports - 2014

the poppers and bacon combo is pretty good though

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

but thazard is basically iwashi rebranded. sardine/iwashi closed and went their separated ways. in a way, its still iwashi

and that's what trends are. its quite laughable now

Boom and Bust: Lesley Chesterman article on local restaurant scene

yep. we definitely need more affordable tasty places. we don't, on the other hand, need more trendy places

Openings & Closings October, November & December 2014

thazard officially opened yesterday (november 19)
