[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.

An Afternoon with Michael Bonacini

In early December of 2016, one of Masterchef Canada's judges Michael Bonacini, who is a chef and restauranteur, was in Montreal for the filming of 24 Hours of Food with Michael Bonacini on Bell Fibe TV1. I love to introduce and share the food scenes here with friend. I also get excited when I see that others have the same thoughts as me, and give this city the culinary recognition that it deserves. I was lucky (and honored) to be invited to interview chef Bonacini at one of my favorite restaurants, Provisions 1268!

[MTL] Jewish Comfort Food – Arthurs Nosh Bar

The long wait in front of the Arthurs Nosh Bar in the neighborhood St-Henri is no longer a secret. Despite the old classic Jewish restaurants in Montreal,  Arthurs immediately became the city's new favorite soon after its opening. Their menu not only features classic Jewish dishes such as sandwiches made with challah bread, and potato latkes, but also elevates simple Jewish-European dishes by modifying with their own unique twist. Unless you are there right when they open, otherwise, expect to wait!
