There is nothing I love more than the FOOD in Montreal, Quebec. Every time I visit Montreal I look forward to trying the variety of traditional and cultural foods. From Montreal bagels (yes, they are different from regular bagels), traditional poutine (fresh cut French-fries smothered with gravy and cheese curds), Greek, to Lebanese, I love it all. I know that when I visit Montreal I won’t worry about what I eat, because I will want to try it all. With unlimited markets, restaurants, street vendors, and food trucks I’ll be eating my way through the vacation.
One of the best parts of traveling is being able to try all the different foods in the area. I could spend an entire afternoon in China Town nibbling my way through. All over the island of Montreal I can find fresh cooked delicacies made with the freshet ingredients. With Montreal being one of Canada’s most multi-cultural cities, I’m able to find every kind of food: Korean BBQ, Thai, Montreal smoked meat, Indian, Italian, French-Canadian (the bakeries are incredible), Portuguese, Irish, and beyond. The options are endless; half the time I don’t even know where to begin.They say that Montreal has the best variety of food from around-the-world, especially once you know the area well.
Some of the best in Montreal:
Basha, Amir- Lebanese cuisine
Adonis- Lebanese Market
Lafleur, La Belle Province- Poutine and Steamed Hot Dogs
Marathon Souvlaki Restaurant- Greek
West Island Marche, St-Viateur Bagel, Real Bagel- Montreal Bagles
Scores- Pea Soup (French Canadian delicacy)
Smoked Meat Pete’s, Chenoy’s- Smoked Meat
Atwater Market, Jean Talon Market- Variety of food vendors
I can’t wait to try the food in my next destination: Puerto Rico.
