Awesome Supermarkets (and why)

Same for me. The produce and the seafood, at regular price, is much cheaper than at chain supermarkets. They have crazy specials on dairy products/soy/almond beverages sometimes.

Steak & Eggs for sunday brunch

Quai no. 4 on Masson also has steak and egg on their brunch menu. I'm not really a connoisseur, but I enjoyed it. Here's a picture. The steak is hidden underneath the eggs (I asked for scrambled) though...

Portuguese Chicken - which is currently the best?

I went to the one on Ontario and swore never to go back. The chicken was dry and pretty bland, and the fries were completely burned.

the Intermarche on Mont-Royal/Papineau is open 24h, the Provigo on Ste-Catherine/Fort is open at least until midnight, if not 1am, as is the nearby Supermarché PA.

Souk - Just For Laughs (food truck gathering)

My friend and I shared the octopus takoyaki ($4 for 4) -- they were good, but pretty salty, and the pieces of octopus are very small.

We also had the steak &mushroom and chili pies from ta (tourtière australienne). Both were very good and piping hot. Big chunks of meat in the steak pie. (about $13)

Finally, we had the pulled pork sandwich from Lucky7 and didn't like it at all. It was lukewarm, dry and greasy at once. Mostly bland. The pulled pork from the next truck (Pas d'Cochon dans Mon Salon) looked much better and a bit bigger for the same price ($7) but we only realized that afterwards.

We didn't have dessert, but Pâtisserie Cremy is there, and they have big delicious brownies for $3. I've loved every pastry I've bought from that place, and the owner is friendly.

Cheapest Bubble Tea in Montreal?

I got a bubble tea at the Underground Café in metro Lionel-Groulx last spring. I remember thinking it was cheap, maybe $3.50, but I'm not sure. I think it's on the dock(?) between Angrignon and Côte-Vertu.

I've seen small bags of pistachio paste at the Folies en vrac on Ste-Catherine (right in front of Beaudry station) in the last few months.

Porcini Powder in MTL?

They might have some at the Mycoboutique (http://www.mycoboutique.ca/), but in small jars, not en vrac. Maybe you should call them first.

They did move sometime last fall... It's now on Mont-Royal, between de Lorimier and Papineau... corner Bordeaux, maybe.

Pepsi made with sugar cane

I saw individual cans at Metro (the grocery store) at Langelier (metro station). I have no idea whether they also have packs, though...

Your fave ice cream flavors from the Mtl ice cream shops

actually, Le Patio was open for the first time this season on March 16th (although with little choices for homemade ice cream), but I guess the weather has been too unfavorable..

Recommendations for a pre-symphony dinner near Place des Arts?

It's been nearly two years since I ordered butter chicken to go at that restaurant, service was friendly, the food average, nothing exceptionnal. The place itself isn't the cleanest and thus, not very inviting. Or at least that's what I think whenever I pass by.

Ethnic markets

La Vieille Europe on Saint-Laurent (near des Pins)
I was only there for two minutes (and for the first time) this week, but I can't wait to go back and explore. The place looked jam-packed with treasures.

Portugese Chicken Restaurants

Braseiro's food is good, but the two or three times I went, the service was horrible and ruined the experience for me.

Best chocolate cake in Montreal?

You can just call and reserve a cake at noon, she'll tell you what she has that day, and she'll have it all boxed up and ready for you, even if you pick it up at 5:58 :)

bulk candy store

there's Sucre bleu:
1741 St. Denis; (514)282-1440
3656 St. Laurent; (514)543-1072
2015 Crescent ; (514)678-3115

I'd call first though, because I think one of those locations closed. I've only been to the one on St-Denis, but they have ice cream and slushies as well.

Of all the stores that sell bbq duck in Chinatown, which one is the tastiest?

I'm not sure, but I think it has "Lam" in its name, and the sign is red.

Where to find brunost/gjetost?

I have read a lot online about this Norwegian cheese and I have been dying to taste it (apparently it is very similar to caramel!)
I haven't been able to find it, and neither has my friend who went looking for it around Jean-Talon Market - but we are no cheese experts.

Has anyone seen this mysterious cheese anywhere in Montreal?
Thank you!
