Phone Etiquette at the Table: The Rules Have Changed

Using your phone while in the company of others is still absolutely annoying and rude.
Actually, it is worse now than it was four years ago since, as you mentionned, it seems to be more accepted. The fact that a social/cultural norm is "socially accepted" doesn't make it good.

Mtl restaurants slashing their prices

i don't know about restaurants slashing their prices but i've noticed quite a few places have gotten a bit more expensive in the last year

Your fave ice cream flavors from the Mtl ice cream shops

this summer my favorite has been coaticook's "tire et pépite d'érable"
two summers ago i was always eating the cointreau flavor at leo le glacier but the last few times i went they didn't have it in stock (haven't been there in a while though)

edible Chinese food?

too healthy?
i don't get it. i've been to most places mentionned in this thread and what i get is ultra greasy stuff. i mean even a vegetable plate at, let's say deer garden/beijing/vip/niu kee is drenched in oil
not that i'm complaining, i enjoy it, but i don't get the "too healthy, not greasy enough" comment
