Jewish Neighborhood Food Tour
From $73.26
Taste your way through Montreal’s historic Jewish neighborhood on this delicious walking food tour. Learn about the area’s vibrant culinary heritage and renowned residents as you follow your guide to authentic local eateries including a smoked meat deli, a kosher bakery and an 80-year-old dining institution. Sample neighborhood staples like cured meats, sweets and one of Montreal’s best bagels on the 3.5-hour tour.
What to Expect
Bring your walking shoes and a healthy appetite on this culinary tour of Montreal’s Jewish neighborhood. Make your way to the area in the late morning to meet your local foodie guide, and set off by foot through the charming historic streets. Your first stop is a deli specializing in smoked meats in the district of Outremont, home to a large Hasidic Jewish community. Enjoy a taste of three dishes used in traditional Jewish cooking while your guide gives an overview of Montreal’s culinary makeup.
Continue on to a local kosher bakery to sample sumptuous Jewish desserts, which may include chocolate babka, triangular stuffed hamentashen, nutty rugelach and poppy seed cake. No Jewish food tour would be complete without a visit to a bagel joint, so taste for yourself what some claim to be Montreal’s best bagel at the next stop. 
In between tasting stops, admire the neighbor’s diverse architecture and listen to your guide share tales of famous former residents, such as writer Mordecai Richler.  To get a true feel the neighborhood’s dining scene, pop in to a local restaurant that’s been dishing up authentic Jewish dishes for more than 80 years. 
By the end of the 3.5-hour tour, expect to eat five to seven different samples that make up a satisfying meal.
