25 of Montreal’s Most Iconic Dishes Can Still Be Had at Home
Smoked, roasted, baked, or fried, this city has got it Montreal’s culinary scene has a number of well-known icons: smoked meat sandwiches, bagels, and poutine — dishes tourists won’t leave the city without trying.
But alongside them are the imports, foods from different cultures (French, Haitian, Portuguese, for example), which have all carved out space on the city’s food scene — not to mention the less internationally-renowned home-grown creations, like Dic Ann’s burgers or the Orange Julep. Then there’s a few new-wave options to round our selection of 25.
Noticeably absent from this list are the rib-eye from Moishes, which after 82 years of business closed its doors on the Main, and the mish-mash at Beauty’s, which is still closed for renovations. Owners of both of these institutions are promising a return, and we will be here to welcome them back when they do.
