Montreal Recommendations Request

Recommended Posts

Hi!  I've got a friend who is going to visit and wants 3 things...

 

Your favorite Montreal restaurant (trying to get more details from him here)

 

Your favorite poutine

 

Your favorite smoked meat sandwich.  

 

Thanks so much!

Though I have not been in years...

 

Au Pied De Cochon was our favourite restaurant - reservations will be required in advance.

 

Schwartz's for smoked meat.  Make sure you get med-fat.

 

Had a great poutine after much research, though sadly cannot recall the name...

Schwartz's is still our go-to for a smoked meat sandwich. Yes to medium fat. We always get ours with a pickle, an order of fries, and a cherry soda. And after we eat, we go to the takeaway shop and get some meat for sandwiches at home.

I have not been to Schwartz's  in a long time.

 

in the video age , Ive seen the place featured on various travel/eating shows

 

looks like the same stuff.  

 

and yes to the medium fat.  I used to get the platter , sit at the counter , and then waddle off

 

survived , well before statins became main stream.

 

I should count my blessings that Montreal Hot Smoked Meat is not available locally

 

far far superior to any pastrami of the NYC variety Ive ever had.

 

even in NYC.
