Where can I find fresh poblano peppers in Montreal?

Last time I looked I found them at the indoor fruit & veggie place - Fruiterie Atwater - at Atwater Market. Being that it's summertime now, other places may also carry them.

ORGANIC LOCAL APPLES

I've gone to Verger Maniadakis in Franklin Centre a number of times - love it, great apples and ice cider too.

Thanks for the heads-up. Glad to see something open in the old deli location across from Provigo at the corner of Cavendish - it'd been papered up for a while. Small but interesting-looking menu:

Let us know if you try it.

Mexican Spot in St. Henri

Yeah, my burrito at the Frida on CDN wasn't good, either. Hopefully name is just a coincidence.

Do you know if this place is related to (or a new location/name for) the Chez Frida on Cote-des-Neiges?

Thanks for the menu and the actual name! I was thinking it was strange that I couldn't find a single trace of "Pummare" in NDG online. Look forward to checking it out!

Japanese Seaweed Salad -Bright Green Colour - seeking>if possible >without chemicals

Any of the Japanese/Korean groceries are a good bet.

Miyamoto - Westmount on Victoria below Sherbrooke
Korean & Japanese Grocery - NDG near Grand
Jangteu - a few locations in NDG and downtown.

If you search for Japanese groceries on the board you'll find more.

Got a name and/or address for this place? Thanks!

Vegan-friendly and open Sunday evening near Parc Jean-Drapeau or Miles End?

Check out Yuan: http://yuanvegetarien.com/

It's delicious Chinese food, and I doubt you'll miss the meat. The dinner all-you-can-eat menu is $18 per person and the food is made to order. Most dishes are vegan or an be made vegan.

Edit: I just realized Yuan isn't in either of the two locations you mentioned, but it's pretty central and easy to get to.

Hungry Box has opened a storefront at its central kitchen in NDG, on Somerled, a little west of Cavendish. They serve sandwiches, soups, and salads, and I think I noticed a couple of tables if you want to eat there, but it's mostly a takeout joint.

This place has a really nice concept, where they also donate food to homeless shelters.

They used to have a downtown spot, but apparently closed it due to rising rent. They still do office catering and will deliver orders over $20.

The sandwich I got today was delicious - about $5, tasty chicken salad on a fresh onion challah roll.

Tandoori Agra, an Indian place, has opened on Somerled.

6544 Avenue Somerled
Menu: http://www.tastyboom.com/en/menu/rest...

Looks like they'll deliver, maybe once they get their TastyBoom account fully set up.

Edit: I found a website and phone number, they do offer free delivery.

Finally, signs of life at the old Benedict's location on the corner of Monkland and Royal in NDG, dormant since the fire a few years ago. According to signs, it will become a Bacaro Pizzeria Urbaine, which currently has a restaurant on Ste-Catherine in Westmount. Signs say opening this fall.

Tea sandwiches

Fressers would do party sandwiches if that would fit the bill. (And they're delicious.)

Solo Lunch, Plateau

Just a heads-up for the OP that many of the above restos don't have a terasse, as you'd requested.

Aux Vivres has a small one out back and might fit the bill, but it's a vegan menu and might not be your cup of tea. On the other hand, the food is delicious and has charmed many omnivores I know. I highly recommend the "BLT" with smoked coconut bacon.

Cafe Santropol has a beautiful terasse in the back, and original sandwiches. Haven't been there in years but it's a Montreal classic.

Smoked Meat w/non-meat eating husband

If the weather is decent I agree with the picnic/Coco Rico for takeout chicken sandwich idea as being the best of both worlds.

But if the weather is poor and you do want to go to Schwartz's, as a non smoked-meat eating chicken-eater myself, my recommendation would be:

- skip the turkey sandwich, it's just processed turkey roll
- consider the chicken "combo" platter, it comes with half (I think it's half?) a hot smoked chicken, which is delicious and studded with spices. There may be a sharing charge if you don't get another meal. The only problem is they're often out of the smoked chicken, so then your husband would be out of luck.

Recommendations for Old Montreal

Sure, I didn't mean to imply that the entire Old Port was a tourist trap, only that a visitor should be careful of where they go in that area. :)

Brit & Chips - http://www.britandchips.com/
Olive & Gourmando - http://oliveetgourmando.com/
Le Cartet - http://lecartet.com/
Chinatown (short walk away) - Pho Bang NY for Vietnamese, lots more

Beware the tourist traps, like those down by the Old Port area. :)

Lots of other Old Montreal recs if you do a quick search of the boards, it's one of the most popular areas of the city for tourists. Have a great trip!

Seafood restaurant in Montreal

@JerkPork - I think it depends when you go. They usually have a wide variety of seafood, I was just there a week ago and they had monkfish and lobster and whole dory, among many others. Only time out of many I was there and the selection was limited. I've always seen prices on each item, too (per pound). It's true I've never seen a menu.

Seafood restaurant in Montreal

Not for the anniversary meal (too casual) but an excellent seafood restaurant is Rayan:
http://restaurantrayan.com/en/

You choose your fish/seafood from the counter and then they cook it to your liking.

Restaurant Coréen Mon Ami - 모나미

Very glad to hear you liked it!

They have a lot of different sauces (not sure which you tried?) but if you're happy with your honey, then awesome. ;)

When in Montreal, eat Foie Gras

Brit and Chips in Old Montreal is good if you're in the mood for that. Like O&G it's also very busy at lunch, suggest going earlier (they seem to open at 11) or later.

Restaurant Coréen Mon Ami - 모나미

I've been here a few more times since I posted this review and tried a few more dishes. Here are the results:

- beef bulgogi - everyone loved this (I don't eat beef so I didn't have any)
- noodles in black bean sauce with vegetables - gloppy, too much sauce, not enough other ingredients. It was also full of ground meat, which I didn't expect. Wouldn't order again.
- "sausages with vegetables" - almost no one touched this because the "sausages" turned out just to be little cocktail hot dogs, which isn't what anyone was expecting. The veggies were chunks of peppers and onions. Wouldn't order again.

We tried to order the ramen as takeout but they said it doesn't travel well and suggested the veggie dumplings instead, so we had that. They were good, but unfortunately fried, so we ended up with both fried chicken and fried dumplings - too much fried in one meal. :)

I've heard good things about the bibimbap so I plan to try that.
