The month of June is now behind us and that means that half the year is in the books.  With that, I’m getting even closer to unveiling the 250th burger in a search that has officially lasted 5 years.

Family is a very important part of everyone’s life, whether you want to admit it or not.  In restaurants, there are types of cuisine that lend themselves better to the family style dish delivery system.  You order in tandem and you share.  We all know that most families have to share.  That’s where the concept of Namos comes in.

4902 Boulevard Saint-Laurent
Montréal, Québec

Bus:  STM 51, 55

Visit:  April 28, 2014


Boulevard Saint-Laurent is probably one of the most iconic streets on the island of Montréal.  While there is a lot going on, there are some stretches of The Main that has very little when it comes to eating.  In the last little while, you have a place that is starting to change that assumption and it’s called Pub Sir Joseph.

Almost 5 years in, it’s getting tougher to find places that make it hard to ignore.  This island that we all call home has a lot to offer and there are surely some places that fit that bill.  When you make your way to the west end of Westmount, you’ll find a place that is known as Brasserie Central.

A rebel is a person who doesn’t follow the rules, mostly because they think that they know better.  In the realm of food, a rebel is one that does things in a way that no one ever thinks of.  In this city, there’s a place that uses that word of its name and they are known as Rebel Brasserie Urbaine.

When it comes to expanding to different types of cuisine, I’m not that good.  You can tell all that just by looking at the title of this post.  Also, I’m awful when I’m put on the spot to choose a place to eat, especially when there’s a burger involved.  On this day, I made my way to Prince Arthur, where I stumbled into La Caverne Grecque.

Over the course of the last five years, I had the chance to visit many local restaurants and even some outside the borders of this province.  During that time, I’ve been limited by the island of Montréal, the city of Laval, and the agglomeration of Longueuil.  Being confined by  the 3 zones of public transit, going out further has been tougher.  Well, on a nice day in the month of May, I found myself in a strange city, at a place called Limani.

The month of May is important for just about anyone.  Most schools are winding down their academic years and that causes a lot of us, including myself, to be really busy.  In the realm of this search, there were a few loose ends to tie up.  I actually had a personal situation which could have caused a lengthy interruption to my normal routine.  Luckily, that was sorted out rather quickly, thanks to some pure, dumb luck.

On this day, 5 years ago, there was a little restaurant on Ontario, just north of De Maisonneuve, and it had a lot of high praise.  The praise was all because of a burger.  At the time, I didn’t get it.  Even after having that first burger, I still didn’t get it.  Well, that place was known as La Paryse and it was the first of 249 burgers that have been consumed over the last 5 years.

If there’s one certainty in this city, it’s the fact that there are as many food bloggers as there are restaurants that specialize in brunch.  In the past, I’ve made some steps to get to know the players in both those categories, but not enough to really say that I know much.  Well, a stop at a restaurant boutique known as Le Cartet would hopefully remedy all that.

The month of April saw two big things in the realm of the Great Burger Search.  For one, the results from Philadelphia saw the light of day.  As that was going on, I had the chance to make a return to Boston for another slew of burgers and a second chance at a place that was closed the first time around.

A couple of months ago, I made my way to Westmount to check out one of the oldest restaurants in the city.  Along the way, I was scoping out Greene to seek out new places for my list.  Well, there was another place that wasn’t that far away.  That place was Bistro on the Avenue.

There have been two things that have started to crowd my life in the last year or so.  Those two things are sushi and all you can eat places.  While some people love them, others try their best to stay away from them.  I’m undecided on the topic.  But, a visit to Sushi St-Denis might push me in one direction or another.

Success is often made out of second chances.  I’m so grateful that I got a second chance in my career, where I’m doing a whole lot better than the first time around.  Like in life, restaurants or locations often face the prospect of getting a second chance.  Located in the West Island, Athena is a place that is rebuilding a reputation.

Lately, I’ve been on pizza tour that has included a few places that I’ve been meaning to try.  The quality of some of these places may vary, but there’s one thing that’s completely consistent, they all serve pizza.  If you’ve spent any time near the McGill ghetto, you would have, no doubt, heard the name Amelios.
