This will be my first visit to the city so any help would be amazing and any recommendations on other 'touristy' stuff to do would be great as well.

Thanks in advance!
they should be not sure if any players will be practicing but the doors should be open in Brossard

I'm visiting Montreal around Christmas-New Years time, does anyone have any good tips what I could do around the city..? Some Christmas happenings, fairs etc.?

I'd be extremely thankful for any tips for something to do/see!

Best Cheap Eats in Montreal

So, I pretty much just moved here. Being a reasonably poor student, I have located a few cheap places to eat, but I want more:

-Romados
-Patati Patata
-Lola Rosa(pretty cheap for Vegetarian)
-Schwartz's
-Jean Talon Market

Who's got the goods?

Places near or around Plateau would be nice, but suggest for wherever, this thread is obviously for others as well.

Define cheap. As precise as you can get.

my mom will cook you a 4 course meal... for free.

but you'll have to get down on your knees and scrub her carpet... some old stains.


but to answer your question - COSMOS and Decarie Hot dogs. Both great experiences (the Cosmos chef, who is also the owner, is a riot...you'll see.)

But both places are heart killers.

Boustan:

- Chicken Wrap (shish taouk) 5$
- Combo with potatoes (take garlic sauce) and drink = 8$~

Pho Bac (China town):

- Grilled Chicken Soup (soupe poulardine, doesn't have a number on the menu, located at the bottom of the soup page) - 7$ for small, 7.50 medium, 8.50 large.
- Soups are packed with generous heaps of meat and noodles, and the broth is to die for. A large is enough to feed 2, most people can't finish it on their own (I do.)

Wok Cafe (on Saint-Catherine, past Concordia):

- You can get a whole plate (rice, vegetable, meat) for under 10$, the food is excellent and if you go for lunch they give you free spring roll so you'll be full for a while.

Three Amigos:

- Cheap, mexican. That's about it.

Obviously I don't suggest going for these every day unless you fancy being a fatty. A balance of going to the restaurant once or twice a week, and limiting yourself to fast food for days when you are on the run, is a good idea. Otherwise, get some brown bread and a few cold cuts (I suggest Mourelatos, their price for cold cuts are really good) to last you through the week.

Basically I'm not a health freak, but I just don't want a fellow student to eat pizza, poutine and burgers every day. Some people can do it and not feel the effects, but it's definitely not good for you. I would've said some sushi might liven things up, but that's on the expensive side.

I'll add to the list as I come up with other ideas.

I actually cook a lot, and eat much better than the average person; probably about 4 or 5 times a week. For example last week I cooked 4 times(Pesto tomato pasta, chicken on grilled tomato and spinach, trout with onions, tomatoes and boiled potatoes, and perogies). Breakfast is simple, usually just an egg or two, or some toast with cheese or peanut butter. But finding places for lunch and for times I am feeling a bit lazy I need cheap places to go. And sometimes these places are a lot cheaper than cooking for yourself could be, especially for lunch where you can find really good deals.

Thanks for the recommendations BTW.

Noodle Factory on st-urbain has pretty good shanghai style cooking. The soup dumplings are amazing.

For vegetarian indian (gasp!), Pushap is your best bet. It's dirt cheap (you can eat for two for about 15$) and it's pretty awesome vegetarian food.

You're welcome, and sounds like you're set if you can make your own food.

And yeah I'm of Indian descent and we're pretty picky about Indian restaurants in general, but Pushap is great. We usually go there for sweets and samosa but their veg dishes are good too.

NFL Sundays

I'll be coming up in Oct for the Bruins game, but I have never been up there during football season. Do most of the sports bars have sunday ticket to watch all the games? I'll be staying through monday and was hoping to see my Steelers beat up on the Patriots that Sunday. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

New Years Eve

I come in peace!

I'm looking at going to Montreal with a group of friends this year for New Years Eve. What are some nice hotels to look at staying at?

More so, what are the better clubs to look at going too. We're gonna pick one and just do the pre sale thing for new years eve so any advice would be great. As an FYI my group is very into House music with some top 20 if that helps. Even more so if anyone knows of any dj's playing that night that'd be great.

Thanks!

Getting a Jersey signed..

Hey guys... Looking for a little friendly help here. My brother-in-law is a huge Habs fan, so I was thinking of getting him a Subban jersey for xmas and having it signed. Now, being out of province and not really being able to attend any games, any ideas of how I'd go about doing this?

Is it possible to ship the jersey to their Front Office and have them take care of it a "mutually convenient time"?

Thanks for the help!

I don't think you can ship it and get it signed like that.. I may be wrong, but the place would blow up with fans sending merch to get signed. I think they only do that for special causes or events.

Look out for signing events. Who knows? Subban's a TO homeboy.

Hmmm well that's too bad. I think I'll just email them to see what they have to say.

And HA... Actually, I live in Ottawa.
