Yuan: Vegetarian Virtue

It feels like there’s been an explosion of vegan and vegetarian food options in Montreal lately. Even just a few years ago, the best a vegetarian could hope for was the odd salad in a restaurant, and fries.  These days, every restaurant we visit seems to have an actual veggie section. And then there are…

Montreal Food Trucks: NOT Your Average Street Food!

Being a cosmopolitan city that’s fairly big, there are few things that Montreal does not have. Pointedly, one thing it’s missing is casual street food.

Next Korean Meal? Jumak!

We love Korean food. Let’s face it, there aren’t many things better than a bowl of hot sundubu-jjigae on a winter night or a plate of japchae when you’re feeling down (or up, really.

Flawless Flatbread

Apparently, there’s a guy who drives all the way from Montreal to Burlington, Vermont, just to have pizza at a restaurant called American Flatbread (Burlington Hearth). This bit of culinary obsession impressed one of our friends enough that he went to American Flatbread to try out the pizza for himself. Four times. Our friend positively RAVES…

The Journey Begins with Bossa

Here we are, writing our first post together! We’re going to start locally, with a new Italian place that just opened up a stone’s throw away from our home, Bossa. Bossa is a small and cozy, quaint little shop that’s just packed with both imported and house-made Italian ingredients, sauces, and decor. They also have…
