Le chemin le plus court vers son estomac passe par le métro... | The shortest path to one's stomach passes by the metro...
|Chocolaterie Geneviève Grandbois||162, rue Saint-Viateur Ouest||Didn't try the chocolates, but liquid chocolate is the $2.75 + tx for the tiny dose (4 to 6 oz) of chocopleasure. (CS)|
|Keur Fatou||66, St-Viateur Ouest||To be eating African in a North American city sounds exotic, but it is a bit disappointing in practice. The meals are tasty and exotic, and one of the stews had sweet potatoes, while another consisted of fish. But the portions were too small, way too small... Too calm on weekdays - apparently it gets much more animated on weekends. (CS)|
|café esperanza||5490 St-Laurent||my new favourite cafe. renovated from an old-school pharmacy, it's a large wonderful space with wonderfully large windows... perfect for reading. vegan friendly. metro rosemont is closer, but hard to find a way to walk from there. (JW) just across from where I worked, I used to walk pass Café Esperanza on every single day, amazed by its fabulous setting straight out of a garage sale.(CS)|
|Navarino||5563, avenue du Parc||Lively neighbourhood feel. Main attraction is the impressive and inexpensive collection of pastries, freshly-made sandwiches and salads. Points for the Greek specialties: baklava, melomakarona and spanakopita. (CDW)|
|Euro Deli Batory||115, Saint-Viateur O||You're broke? No problem. The most expensive item on the menu of this tiny Polish grocery-café is $12 and that's for two people. The bigos --- sauerkraut and kielbasa sausage --- is delicious. The soups are the perfect remedy for the winter blues. (CDW)|
|Milani||227, Bernard O.||Tiny resto run by a friendly Vietnamese couple. Unfortunately, the food --- mostly soups and stir-frys --- is bland and unremarkable. (CDW)|
|Senzala||177 Rue Bernard Ouest||Brazillian restaurant. Poached eggs are not the greatest, but a fruit-rich brunch (my eggs were on mango, with a cheese gratin) makes up for it. Don't have the steak + poached eggs. There's another branch on Mont-Royal E, I think. (CS)|
