Real Beijing Duck / Peking Duck - best place in Montreal?

Yes, Mon Nan is still serving their 3-course dinner. I had it a couple of months ago, $30 for a half-duck, perfect for 2 people. Now located at 43 Rue de la Gauchetière Est. It was pretty good, though the sliced duck for pancakes was a bit dry.

I forgot this place had its own thread. I posted a little review here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9727...

I'll try to remember to ask about the hours next time.

What kind of cuisine are you looking for? If you can be more specific than "local" you may get better responses. :-)

Maybe you could post a link or email for people to get more info? We don't have a PM system here. You might also want to post it on the 2015 Events thread where more people might see it, as this one is so crazy long already.

Tiny Taco Place in Montreal West

Went to the newest incarnation of this place - Tacos Tijuana - on Sherbrooke, in the old Ma's location.

5889 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest

It was the same couple from Montreal West (they said the Westminster location was still open) and the same menu. We spent $18 taxes in for 5 tacos, delicious as always. The place has a few tables and bright decoration. No public bathroom though, and the stuff is messy to eat, so we still prefer to take out.

"There is a cafe recently between Montreal Downtown newly opened cafe. Before that, if what you want to eat tea, have to go to Chinatown. Restaurants like most of the Hong Kong local cafe! Clean and bright. Tea shrimp dumplings, wonton, all kinds of porridge to lunch Bowl, toppings noodle, noodles, and even afternoon tea and supper are covering everything."
Sounds promising...

ISO "Liquid Red Pepper Seasoning"

Ha. Sometimes traditions need to be reborn. ;-)

In any case, I think I found the recipe online if anyone is interested (funny, here they just say Tabasco):

ISO "Liquid Red Pepper Seasoning"

Agreed! The word seasoning made it sound like some kind of dry spice (which made no sense since you also said "liquid"!). Generic hot sauce FTW!

Another drawback to the Q&A format apart from the fact that there is no threading and you can't reply to an individual post is that read posts are no longer collapsed. EaterBob - would you consider requesting that this thread be locked so we can start a new one? I don't think the Q&A format is up for this challenge. ;-)

Caimito in Montreal?

Ah - if there's a Haitian connection you might try this market, it's supposed to be a good one:

Lufa marketplace suggestions?

Great idea to repot - I'll try not to be lazy next time and do that. :-)

Lufa marketplace suggestions?

Our basil plant usually lasts 5-6 weeks, but we don't use it for things that require a large amount of basil, like pesto. We just pick off a few leaves at a time, give it water when it starts to flag, and it ends up lasting a while. If we could get it to last a few months that'd be awesome but I'm not sure how.

Lufa marketplace suggestions?

Things I get regularly include:

- eggplants - always super fresh
- shiitake or portobello mushrooms
- Lebanese or English cukes
- squashes - all kinds
- chili peppers like jalapenos and habaneros
- basil plant
- rainbow chard
- baby bok choy
- carrots - all types

I often get red/yellow/orange peppers but sometimes they are not as fresh as they could be. (This week it was great.) One of the things I appreciate about Lufa is if I ask for a refund for a product that was not satisfactory, it is granted without question and often I get an apology as well.

I always take advantage of the free item when there is one - search for the word "free" to find it. Last few weeks there have been free apples. Sometimes it's a product sample of something new, like chocolate or granola.

I really appreciate the $15 minimum - when I had a $22 basket I sometimes was too tempted to fill it with baked goods to meet the minimum, for me, beating the point of a healthy veggie & fruit basket.

My biggest beef is when they mess up the order, usually by leaving something out that I ordered. I've complained about this several times and they seem to have gotten better.

I got a grapefruit and orange this week but they're still in the fridge.

Sparkles in NDG probably has them - call to check.

You could also try Ares, Michaels, or France Decor/Vixit.

I suggest you try Ares although I'll admit I'm not sure what a "pudding basin" is or how specialized it is. If it's something British you could also try Bramble House.

Edit: I just Googled "pudding basin" and I still suggest the above two places. :-

I'd avoid it. Been to a group dinner at the one on St-Denis and it was very mediocre.

Thanks for the specifics! How is the chicken texture-wise, is it juicy and shredded, or more like drier chunks?
