[MTL] Little Italy’s Essential – Pizzeria GEMA

Not only David McMillan, owner of Joe Beef, Liverpool House and Le Vin Papillon, has his own restaurants trio, so do Stefano Faita and Michele Forgione too, and Pizzeria GEMA is one of them. As the restaurant is only few blocks away from the Jean Talon Market, the ingredients of their appetizers and pizzas use local products that are available at the market. There are two words to describe their food, fresh and home. Oh! If you are too full for pizza, their homemade ice cream is worth a detour too.

[MTL] Back to School with Foodora

It's time of the year where summer is over, and time for students to go back to school! Though school work load might not be as heavy as exam periods, but there are still a lot of events happening that keep students as busy as they would have during the exam periods. Foodora, one of the leading food delivery companies in Montreal, is partnering up with three of their restaurant partners to offer unique dishes that will be available exclusively on foodora. These dishes take a modern, elevated twist on childhood lunchtime classics, and are bound to make you feel nostalgic. The dishes will be available starting Tuesday, August 22 until Wednesday, September 20th. Now, let's see what are the 3 restaurants?

[MTL] Italianate in Style – Le Serpent

Hidden in the former Darling Laundry, Le Serpent serves Italian-inspired contemporary cuisine. Situated at the border of Old Montreal and Griffintown, the restaurant doesn't have a flashy sign, a GPS is a necessity to get there. I was tempted to explore the menu for a while, but also attracted by the industrial design, and glad that I got to visit with my mother when she was in town!

[MTL] A Mediterranean Sunday – Ikanos

"Where to brunch?" is the question that's always on my mind as soon as hump day hits. Ikanos is located on Old Montreal's one of the busiest streets. The restaurant has its reputation out there for specializing in contemporary mediterranean cuisine. Recently, Ikanos is making its way to join the brunch game in the city by introducing a unique brunch experience remaining true to the Ikanos style, a Mediterranean style menu with a twist on classic brunch staples.
