Grumman '78: No wheels at the Faubourg

Posted by Erika / May 19, 2012

Grumman '78 FaubourgLast summer, Grumman '78 skyrocketed to fame, its overwhelming success a play on Montreal's lack of street food. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I might have to slap you across the face with one of their not-Mexican-but-Mexican-inspired tacos and throw you under the truck it came from. But as the sunny days faded, so did the Grumman '78 craze. Yes, they appeared at a few winter events and held the occasional taco party at headquarters, but frankly, they dropped from my radar when the season put a strain on chowing down tacos street side.

Chand PalaceI take Indian food very, very seriously. And when a craving hits, it only makes sense to go to the motherland: Parc-Ex. I've been a long-time fan of Bombay Mahal, host of my first true experience, but I like to keep my options open. Chand Palace, formerly known as Curry & Naan, is actually right across the street and has proven to be a reliable spot to get it on. It's tiny, but good things really do come in small packages.

Mi & Stu

Posted by Erika / April 30, 2012

Mi & StuI count my blessings every day for being able to indulge in anything without worrying about gluten, dairy and nuts. I realize not everyone is as fortunate and I can't help but feel that some of you are missing out. But for those of you with these specific restrictions, I assure you this isn't a pity party. In fact, I recently stumbled on a humble bakery in the Mile End that promises not to leave you behind. Mi & Stu is brought to us by Mimi and Stephanie, a dynamic duo strictly devoted to baking sweets and breads that are free of gluten, dairy AND nuts. A triple threat if you will. But get this, those of us who can eat everything can definitely get a satisfying kick out of it too. None of the richness and flavours we look for in baked goods are lost in the making, and that's...impressive.
