KazaMaza was the first Middle-eastern restaurant that I visited 4 years ago.
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.
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?
Le Vin Papillon is one of the three brothers of Joe Beef and Liverpool House, locating right next to each other. To stand out from the other two, a different approach must be taken for sure. When a non-drinker dine at a wine bar, is the food still good without any pairings with wine? On verra (we'll see)...
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!
Le St-Urbain has been on Eater list of essential Montreal restaurants for quite a long period of time. Located in Ahunstic, which is not-so convenient for people without a car, serving seasonal menus. I was near the neighborhood for a job interview, so I can't think of any better reasons to let go this chance!
Restaurant Candide vividly. It was a cold winter day in December, not so long after the restaurant opened. I had a good experience, but it took me almost around a year and a half to return. The food wasn't just all about consist, yet it was better.
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.
Ristorante Beatrice, formerly known as Bice, is located in the Golden Square Miles where the museums are, as well as one of the areas populated with restaurants. It offers a variety of savoury Italian dishes that are prepared with seasonal fresh ingredients. During the summer and fall, they open up the garden-style dining space, which resembles a terrace, but better.
Marconi, located in Mile Ex, for dinner with my friends on a Friday evening to get a head start of the weekend. However, the experience was like a roller coaster ride, but mainly just going straight down.
