Chronically underepresented on the Montreal food scene, Satay Brothers firmly and decisively steals the crown of South East Asian food-fare dominance from the likes of Thai Express franchises and the few smatterings of Vietnamese pho' joints inhabiting the fringes of Chinatown. Sample their satay swagger at the Atwater Market today on the last Friday night of their extended summer hours with what they promise will be a little bit of a party and an ending with a bang.

Maybe you're one to judge a restaurant by it's namesake. If you're anything like me, upon first hearing mention of Regine Cafe, images of traditional diner fare dished up by someone's belle vieille tante Reg initially filled my head. And while these greasy spoon-type breakfasts are certainly not without merit, Regine Cafe certainly falls short of any of these nominal preconceptions- it's certinly not what you'd expect, unless of course your old franco aunt has a neon-tinged old-World baroque & brocade fetish to serve alongside your brunch order.
