I’m not going to beat around the bush and give you some sarcastic recount of a recent brunch experience I had. I went here: Fixe Cafe Bistro for brunch and here is all the information you need: 5985 Saint-Hubert street, 514-270-6667. Stop reading and make your reservations now. I’ll wait. You’ll thank me later.

Done?

Ok good. Are you ready for brunch? Guess what, you don’t have to wait for the weekend. I visited this spot in Rosemont/Petite Patrie that not only serves up a great, GREAT brunch menu that gives you more reasons to look forward to the weekend, but they serve it during the week as well. YES. [click to continue…]

My girl and I were looking for a place to eat on a quite Tuesday night. So we started walking around downtown to find a new place to eat or revisit one of our numerous favourite restaurants in Montreal. As with most people these days, what started off as a walk, slowly became a Pokemon Go mission to “catch ’em all” in the neighbourhood. Long story short, one thing led to another and we ended up at Centropolis Laval. I’m not often in Laval, so I had no idea of where to eat. Fortunately, I’ve heard nothing but great things about Souvlaki Bar, so we decided to check it out. [click to continue…]

Sometimes I eat vegetables. There I said it. Jokes aside, I enjoy eating healthy. Not only out of necessity (science stipulates certain affects pounding down cheeseburgers and poutines has on the body), but out of choice. As much as I love BBQ, burritos, pizza as the next person, I can’t help but crave something lighter when it’s 40 degrees plus humidity in the butt-crack of summer. It’s common that when the mercury rises, your appetite dwindles. So if you’re looking for a place for a light but substantial meal, here is a list of vegetarian and vegan restaurants to get you through the summer (and beyond)!

Tacos and Ceviche in The Mile-End – Socialito

There used to be a time when if you wanted tacos, there were only a few Mexican joints in town to get your fix. The type of places that treat you to a watered down margarita and sombrero on your birthday. Places that featured hokey pseudo pueblo murals painted on the walls. Fortunately for us, […]

Montreal Just got Cheesier – Macbar et Fromage

Everyday when I wake up, I get down on my hands and knees and thank the powers that be that I can eat dairy. Can you imagine a life without ice cream, pizza, poutine or cheeseburgers? I can guarantee that I’d be a lot more unpleasant to be around. I would be way more crankier […]

Grilled Potato Salad with Montreal Style Smoked Meat Wieners – Recipe

Summer is synonymous with barbecues and other ultra casual outdoor gatherings. If you’re lucky, an affair where your dining experience consists of damp swimsuits and forced exposure to manky man-feet squeezed into flip-flops that have seen many a pool parties over the years. But this is a small price to pay to enjoy the company […]

Local Jerk Serves West Indian Food in the Plateau

I love eating hot and spicy foods. But what’s even better is eating hot and spicy foods in the summer. In the thick of summer, there’s something to be said about eating foods that make you sweat like a 16 year old when someone asks to use their bedroom computer. Hot and sweltering weather paired […]
