Chilaquiles

Dear Kramos, precisly, I am Mexican (living in Canada) and I would never understand the fixation to put lime/cream on mexican dishes! Maybe if the tortillas are fried makes sense cutting the oily taste, but if you stale or bake 'em there is no need.
I ate Chilaquiles for breakfast during my four college years, then again, I am from North Mexico, so I guess the recipe varies from region to region.

Chilaquiles

Lime? please don't!!!! That will kill the flavour of the chiles. If you use "stale" tortillas you won't need so many oil. What I do is bake the tortillas until they are crispy. Traditional chilaquiles are often served on a bed of fried beans. Radish and cream,,,, never tried them that way, I think that will "canadiantize" the recipe but you can live without them.

help! Toronto vs. Montreal

You may also try to show him our neighborhoods; there is nothing in Montréal, excepting Ville Marié, that looks like Rosedale, Forest Hill or even Leaside, with big front yards. Montréal is almost all duplex and triplex (even Hampstead starts looking like that). You can also try to win in the comfort of our restaurants, since, while superior in food quality, a lot of Montréal's restaurants have those horrible tables with four chairs glued to the wall, so nobody can comfortably move...

I totally disagree, Market to Market Kensington has better food, more options, and more flavour, with the exception of that little place to buy desserts in Jean-Talon. The cheese places are cheaper in Toronto, although J-T has more options. Kensington is also the only place where I can find hard-to-get mexican products and hand made tortillas.
