Food, Pop Montreal 2006

Top Slop for Pop: Plateau

Posted by MP / October 4, 2006

Just writing about all these great restos is making MP hungry. Luckily the Plateau has some of the best and probably the most food-joints in town. Check out these MP favourites near Club Lambi, Academy Club, Associacao Portuguesa, and O Patro Vys. Enjoy them, but don't forget to make it to your show!

Check other posts for grub choices in Mile End and Downtown.

Club Lambi, Academy Club, Associacao Portuguesa

4120 St-Laurent (between Duluth and Rachel)
OPEN: 11am–9pm
Little eatery offering up huge sandwiches with local latin flavour. Never mind the generic name, this ain’t no ham & cheese joint. Sit down or to go, all sammiches come with tortilla chips and spicy sauce. Also on the menu empanadas, fajitas and tortilla soup. No booze, veggie-friendly and reasonable, with meals priced from $5-$10.

Mondo Fritz
3899 St-Laurent
OPEN : M-F 11am-2am; Sat11am-3am; Sun-Wed 11am-1am
Could it get any better? Open late, tons of greasy burgers, fries, 6 types of flavoured mayo, over 100 types of beer from around the world, salads and 2, read ‘em, TWO types of veggie burgers. Bonus: every meal can be “poutinized” for ultimate grease intake. Speaking of poutine, we dare you to finish a full-sized one. Eat in or out, under $15 including a beer.

Scratch Kitchen at the Copacabana
3910 St-Laurent (one block south of Duluth)
OPEN: 6pm-10pm
Go figure that some of the best Indian food in town is served by a couple of young hipster-types in a local watering hole. One of Montreal’s best-kept secret kitchens, mostly unknown due to it’s dubious diningroom. Don’t let the stuffed koala fool you, this is the shit. Try the yucca fries and you may never go back to taters. Bonus: it’s a bar! Cheap as all hell with smaller girly-plates at $6 and boy-servings at $9.

Ichi Sushi
23 Mont-Royal East
OPEN: 11am-9pm
Hankering for some quickie, rolled up, raw fish? Well, then you know that not just any sushi joint will do. This little stand-up resto’s claim to fame lies chiefly in the freshness of their ingredients and Unagi so yummy you’ll plotz. Conviently located right between Lambi and the Casa del Popolo. Made for take-out but has also a few seats for sittin’. Priced like we were eating fish in the Maritimes.

1 Mount-Royal W
OPEN 24 hours
You know, I used to really like this Lebanese joint at the corner of St. Laurent and Mont-Royal, but I’ve heard it’s gone downhill. At any rate, garlic potatoes are kind of a no-brainer. Although forget about making out with anyone who hasn’t also eaten them.

O Patro Vys

Le Fameux Charcuterie
4500 St-Denis
OPEN all night, or close enough to it
Some people say Rapido has the best poutine at the corner of St. Denis and Mont-Royal, but I swear that Le Fameux Charcuterie, across the street, has served an occasional dish worthy of being called the best in the city. Disclosure: I’m not a Lafleur’s fan.

OMG I forgot all about potiune since I moved to Jeddah till I saw this post. It is delicious and yes! loads of calories its scary. But I love it. I had a friend also that was opssessed with potiune. Every time she was post on call in the hospital she had to get potiune as her major comfort food on her way home. She was the one that got me hooked on it, they even made in at McDonald's in Montreal..-= Lilliy K.b4s last blog .. =-.

Can I just say what a relief to discover a person that genuinely understands what they're talking about on the internet.
You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

More and more people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
It's surprising you aren't more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.

I do think Green could’ve handled some more minutes tonight. I thought Shaw was real quick with the hook for him.
