This is definitely a cool thread. Can we stop talking about politics however! I understand that Montreal is a political epicentre for some, but this thread could definitely do without. Thanks.

BTW, about poutine, I had my first ever try of poutine yesterday at La Belle Province on St. Catherines. It was pretty damn good! What are the best places for poutine in Montreal?

that's one of the most disgusting poutine I ever ate!

I'd give you a few suggestions but I live south of montreal so I can't give you advice of place to eat poutines in montreal that are particulary good.

However, if anyone come close to Beauharnois/Chateauguay/Ste-Martine you definately should try out Chez Grégoire @ Ste-Martine.

Best . Poutine . Ever.

Well poutine itself is pretty disgusting, no?! My friends and I weren't sure where to go, so we asked a couple of people on Ste. Catherines where the best place was, and they suggested La Belle Province.

Kinda surprising, the only place where I ate poutine in Montreal it was at la belle province. And it is dead last from anywhere else I tried out. There's gotta be a better place in downtown, unless my region is that good for poutines

Oh yeah, they're good but you won't be able to make them like they do in Montreal or any other part of Quebec. The secret is using fresh cut fries, blanched once and then refried, using the right cheese (curd), and having the right sauce (gravy).

It's not a question of permanence. The charter isn't interpreted the same way

Who the hell in Montreal is afraid of getting a ticket for jaywalking? I think it's the other way around; we're more afraid that maybe walking across Crescent at 3 am after having had 15 beers when cars are rushing down the street MAY be a little dangerous.

In my experience, the best poutine isn't found in Montreal, much less in fast food chains. You'll find the best poutine in the most obscure, middle-of-nowhere roadside diners or canteens in rural Quebec.

You agree that Montreal drivers are crazy, but you're secretly proud of their nerves of steel.


You greet everyone, from lifelong bosom friends to some one you met once a few years ago, with a two-cheek kiss.

Shopper's Drug Mart is Pharmaprix and Staples is Bureau en Gros, and PFK is finger lickin' good.



Everyone on the street - drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists - think they're immortal, and that you'll move first.

You know that Rocket Richard had nothing to do with astrophysics.

You measure temperature and distance in metric, but weight and height in Imperial measure.

You show up at a party at 11 p.m. and no one else is there yet.

You don't drink pop or soda, you drink soft drinks.


You have yet to understand a single announcement made on the Metro PA system, no matter what the language.
I'm not from Montreal but I visited it there in April, those are the ones I still remember from visiting there.

My cousin almost stopped me from jaywalking About the two kiss, I found that when I met my cousins friends, they didn't do the two kiss thing, partly cause they knew in Toronto that people never did that and thought it would be weird for me, but I got used to it.

So true about the party and nobody there at 11. We went to a club at around 12:30. About the soft drink comment, ooh now I can identify Montreal people for sure...at work the customers either say "regular/large coke/sprite" etc etc but those with Montreal accents ALWAYS say soft drinks. Interesting list!

I guess a little part of me is from Montreal, since I pronounce it like the people tha tlive there, and the sound of Bob Cole calling a Habs game makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. When will that man learn is Sheldon Souray, not Sheldon Sorry. Oh well, I suppose it goes both ways. I remember when games were on SRC, those guys calling Suchy "sushi." Argh! And whoever it was that called Expos games back in the day on SRC sure mangled names too. I remember thinking as a kid who was just starting to learn French, "Aren't people's names supposed to stay the same?" Oooh but the one that takes the cake is people saying Theodore the English way instead of the French way. Drives me nuts. They get it right in the States, but then they say Jose as if he's Spanish instead of French.

La Banquise 994 Rachel Est


This 24-hr hipster place has been a constant favorite of the reviewer, and for good reason. The number of poutines has grown in time, presently serving 22, including such great names as "T-Rex", "Kamikaze", and B.O.M (Bacon, onions and "merguez", sausages). I've had the small poutine Duotone ($5.00), which had ground beef and sauteed onions. During a more recent visit, the Bacon poutine ($8.00 for a large); recognizing that bacon, like foie gras, makes nearly anything better, this is nonetheless a relatively rare poutine add-in which should be a standard in every poutine loving kitchen. The smoky bacon added musky pork heft to what is already a very pleasant platter, and I highly recommend it. La Banquise is now the best, premier all-around poutine joint in Montreal. They offer the greatest variety, with the most imagination, 24 hours and seven days a week. It is a must-stop for anyone eating poutine in Quebec.
