Imagine you’re stuck in traffic on a nice day and you can’t wait to get that one frozen item. Well, if you’re ever lost navigating the immense sector that is Quarter Dix30, you know that you need a reward for that. By getting through the gridlock in the area, you can settle down for something sweet at La Fontana Gelati Bar and Lounge.
This is a revisited post for La Paryse. Click HERE for the original post.

Whenever you think about the question of who has the best burger in the city of Montreal, one name always comes to mind. Regardless of any type of cuisine you like or follow, you cannot ignore what this particular place has done for the Montreal landscape. That place is affectionately known as La Paryse.

The Mile-End part of Montreal is home to a lot of really big names in Montreal’s eating scene. Trying to become one of those iconic names isn’t quite that easy. When your neighbours are Wilensky’s and Fairmount Bagels, you know that the competition is ferocious. Fresh off their appearance their appearance on CTV’s Sunday Bite, Fabergé is one of the relatively new faces trying to cement their place among the rest.

Saint-Denis is not an easy street to have a restaurant. Go along any stretch of the north-south thoroughfare and you’ll see just how many eating establishments there are long the road. When you think broader and start branching out a bit, the competition is stiff. For my first burger in 8 months on the street, I chose Universel, a place more commonly known for their breakfasts. However, they also have a wide menu of other common food.

My search for another place to get decent in Montreal has led me to Juliette & Chocolat. Montreal has quite the competition when it comes to dessert. Whether it be ice cream or chocolate, you have a wide selection of places that can satisfy your sweet tooth. Myself, having just done another chocolate, was still in the frame of mind where I needed that sugary fix. Where better than this place to try something that I’m really starting to enjoy.

As some of you might remember, recently, I went on a search for a fast food version of a lobster roll. After searching more than half a dozen locations and keeping my eyes out in recent weeks, I came up short handed. Luckily, I also keep my attention focused on the Twitter universe where it came to my attention that I could find a lobster roll at other establishment. That’s where Java U came into play. At first, they only mentioned the fact that they had lobster rolls, which didn’t really peak my attention until I found out that they had something more than just the main ingredient. They had bacon and I had to make this priority #1.
