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.

Here we are at the end of 2013 already.  It’s probably been said literally thousands of times by now, but where does the time go?  It’s about that time where we reflect on the year that’s been and what’s to come when the calendar changes.  2013 has been a great year for the search.  When I take a look at it, I’ve expanded the boundaries with visits to 2 major cities and a return visit to Canada’s capital.  There’s listing everything I have planned for 2014, since plans may change.  But, if it was anything like 2013, it will be another one to remember.

Imagine a concept where you’d go into a business and cook the food for yourself.  Well, there’s a type of Asian cuisine that’s popular for that reason and that’s Korean BBQ.  In Montréal, there are more and more of these types of places popping up.  One of those places is Seoul Chako.

My ever growing quest to try as many different Chinese restaurants in the Greater Montreal Area has expanded to another location in Chinatown.  Over the last 4 years, I’ve been slowly visiting all the places that comprised this special part of the city.  The latest place on my long list of Chinese restaurants is Keung Kee.

Over the last four years, there are two things that have become a large part of my daily life, Ville Saint-Laurent and Greek food.  They are two things that I didn’t seek out, but they entered my life and became important parts of it.  When you combine both of them, you get a visit to Elounda.

As a half member of the growing Chinese community of the Greater Montreal Area, looking for places that do that cuisine justice isn’t an easy task.  One would think that going to the center of that universe is the easy way to go, but there are other places on the island where you might find something reasonable.  With that in mind, we ended up at Fu Kam Wah in Ville Saint-Laurent.

When it comes to burgers, finding them in the most unlikely of places is something that I find tremendous.  Finding them is one thing, but seeing that there is a twist to that burger makes it so much more appealing.  My second day of Bouffons Montreal continued with a burger that I couldn’t pass up from the kiosk represented by les 3 petits bouchons.

For anyone of Chinese descent, Dim Sum is a mandatory practice that is part of living the traditional life.  What used to be exclusively a Chinese activity had now become one that is now shared with just about anyone who likes to eat.  I had an unfortunate Dim Sum drought that lasted years.  It wasn’t until 2 years ago that the dry spell was broken with a visit to Ruby Rouge.  Now, 2 years and 3 other places later, I have returned to Ruby Rouge to give it the due it so richly deserves.

In Montreal, there is a list of the essential go-to spots that you have to check off of your list to officially call yourself a resident of this city.  They vary from different kinds of cuisine, budget criteria, and just sheer levels of awesomeness.  One of the places that I’ve been itching to go to in the last few years is called Kazu.  You can ask just about anyone in Montreal and they’ll tell you that this is the place to go.

Happening Gourmand 2013 gives a chance for every Montrealer set foot in restaurants that they would not normally be able to afford.  One of the newcomers in this year’s line-up is a place that people are talking about, Bevo Pizza.  Their take on Italian cuisine and pizza is surely something that could no longer be ignored.

One of the most highly contested areas in Montreal cuisine is that of Greek food.  There are literally dozens of worthy contenders to the title of who makes Greek food worth trying.  While we all have our trusted favorites, once in a while. there comes new players that we must stop to take notice.  One of the latest players on the scene is a place in the Plateau area of Montreal called Estia.

A lot of people would agree, Montreal is one of the place’s with the greatest wealth of Chinese restaurants in North America.  However, one of the other things that we would also agree with is the fact that despite an abundance of those places, there aren’t very many that truly satisfy their customers.  It’s no wonder that when a new place opens up in the midst of Chinatown, it gets the attention of many.  Today’s place in question is Ethan, right in the middle of the pedestrian walkway known as De La Gauchetiere.

Over the last few weeks, the hot topic of conversation over the realm of social media has been about BBQ.  While I’m no real expert on the subject, I always keep my eyes and ears open about where I could find worthy BBQ to try.  Now, I didn’t go to the place where everyone is talking about, but I did find a place that had some of its own buzz over the last few months on its own.  For the last 6 months, Diablos BBQ has been taking on its fair share on St-Denis, a great street for food.

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.
