Xiao Fei Yang 50 de la Gauchetière O Xiao Fei Yang is a chain of hot pot restaurants from Mainland China. Upon entering, you immediately get the feel of this type of classy restaurants that you only find in Asia and large Chinatowns. Hot pots can be individual or collective, depending on the table you get, and spicy or not, with optional "medicinal" herbs. 15-25$/person, all you can eat. Besides the decor and presentation, the hot-pot itself is rather ordinary and can be found elsewhere for cheaper. Don't wear new clothes: you will smell like garlic/herbs by the time you get out.

"little fatty sheep". I like the theme song on their website. (JW)
Niu Kee 1163, Rue Clark Northern Chinese restaurant on the outskirts of Chinatown. Apparently, there's a new chef there since mid-2006, also from Henan province, from which the former chef came from. (CS) run by an ex-peking opera star, this place is one of the few non-canto places in chinatown, offering up dishes you can find everywhere in beijing (although confusingly the english transliteration "niukee" is cantonese). have the 麻辣 (with sichuan peppercorns & cumin) lamb or beef. (JW)
Dobe & Andy 1111, rue Saint-Urbain Suite 12 Chinese pastries, and your typical Hong Kong-style eatery (BBQ pork and roasted pork w/ rice is vanilla there). An iced HK-style milk tea to go is great for a walk in Chinatown in the summer. I think that the egg tarts they sell there are the same delicious ones with a flaky crust that they serve at Kam Fung at dim sum time.
Restaurant Hong Kong 1023, boulevard St-Laurent Their char siu (BBQ pork) to go is the best in Montreal. One of the few restaurants (the only that I know of in Chinatown) that is a restaurant, as well as a Hong Kong-style cold cuts place at the same time, and a favourite since early childhood. (CS)
Yu Hang 400, boulevard René-Lévesque A typical hot-pot place on the main floor of an anonymous hotel building. The hot-pot can be "sichuan-style" (after the chinese province), which basically means super numbing spicy style. Unexpensive all you can eat, and ideal for a good time with friends. (CS)
olive & gourmando 351 rue Saint-Paul O fantastic sandwiches and tantalizing bakery, in old montreal. the most delectable sugar-encrusted vanilla bean palmier.
restaurant uyghur 1017 Boul. St-Laurent our favourite (well maybe only) xinjiang restaurant in town. order some lamb kebabs, a summer salad, and you're good to go. the hotpot ain't bad either. (JW)
kam fung 1111, St-Urbain on the second floor you'll find one of the more popular spots for dim sum in chinatown. downstairs they have a hong kong style bbq eatery too. (JW) Chinese egg tarts are an adaptation of Portuguese natas. You must absolutely try those at Kam Fung at dim sum hour, which are served to you fresh out of the oven (the waitress carries them around the restaurant on a shiny baking plate). Easily beats those from any Chinese bakery in town. (CS)
hoang oanh 1071 St-Laurent "chinatown" seems mostly full of vietnamese places, including this shop that only serves banh mi (vietnamese subs) and snacks. mmmm. (JW)
chez bong 1021 St-Laurent great korean place: fried dumplings, veggie tempura, kimchi stew, and BBQ--all yummy! (JW)
idée magique 30 de la Gauchetière O. popular bubble tea place in chinatown. features j-pop, c-pop, whatever-pop on big-screen tvs. free wifi. (JW)
