Crescent has a double reputation in the city of Montreal. For tourists, it is the place to come to be seen. For the rest of us, it is the place to avoid when you’re looking for something decent to eat. So, that begs the question, is there anything worth visiting on the street? Well, the only way to find out is to check all those places out. One of the staples of Crescent is Dundee’s.

Growing up, there was always that one item of comfort food that everyone never argued about. It doesn’t matter who you are or what kind of background you have, you have to know that the grilled cheese sandwich is a staple of childhood. With the burgeoning Montreal food truck scene, there is one truck that is taking advantage of our desires to relive our childhood, P.A. & Gargantua.
Burgers aren’t the only thing that gets featured here on the GBS. From time to time, I get the chance to try other things that don’t necessarily fit my domain of specialty. These dishes are some that I’ll remember for a time to come.

Summer 2012 has been a very busy time for the GBS. On top of getting a lot of burgering done, I’ve been checking off a shortlist of 5 places that I had to get through before the vacation ended. That list started off at 4 places, but as time went, detailed accounts of an epic sandwich forced me to put one more item on my radar. So, for the third time this summer, I found myself at Parc Émilie-Gamelin, where the La Mangeoire would be located for the day.

This summer, I have a list of 4 non-burger places I have to try. Café Pavé is one of those places. Located in a very crowded culinary part of Montreal, it’s a relatively new presence in the city. Boasting a wide variety of sandwiches on its menu, it creates a new option for those busy workers on the go in the midst of the financial district.

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll notice that now did 2 different sandwiches on the same day within mere hours of each other. Lately, I’ve been looking for every kind of gimmick sandwich possible. Since Subway has been advertising their bacon steak sandwich hardcore, so that compelled me to make this another priority.
