Pop Montreal: Where to Eat (Part 4 of 4)

Posted by Sara / October 2, 2005

So, you spent most of your food budget for the week on Apologies to the Queen Mary, huh? But with all the tasty offerings at Pop Montreal over the next few days, you'll need your energy. What's a hipster to do?

We here at Midnight Poutine feel your pain, or at least we hear your tummy rumbling. So, without any further nonsense, here's a running guide to good and cheap eats around tonight's venues. Dig in! And, I'm sorry I called you a hipster back there.

Sunday, October 2:

Tonight I've got a massive craving for a sandwich. And writing resto recommendations with a craving is kind of like shopping on an empty stomach, so bear with me, Gentle Reader. If you're off to see the Posies at Sala Rossa, make your first stop Casa Del Popolo (4873 St. Laurent). They've got a blackboard full of inventive, slightly hippy-ish sandwiches, stacked with roasted veggies and rich cheeses, and served on homemade bread. They're also served with nachos and Casa's tasty, not-at-all-spicy (yay!) house salsa.

On your way to see Patrick Watson and Architecture in Helsinki at Cabaret, drop by Pain de l'Inde (2027 St. Laurent) for a pakora sandwich. That's right I said pakora sandwich. Remember that awesome MIA show last weekend? It's like that happening in your mouth.

Just around the corner from Everything's Coming My Way at O Patro Vys, La Belle Thailandaise (4514 St. Denis, near Mont Royal) offers simple and sophisticated dishes, a large selection of vegetarian dishes. and is remarkably cheap. The vegetarian dumplings in peanut sauce surprise with a nutty, savory filling and the General Tao tofu is an over-the-top breaded and deep fried delight. If you're running late, pop into the Vietnamese place next door for an addictive spring roll sandwich on a baguette.
