“Montreal deli "lite"”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

This Montreal institution serves smoked meat and other deli specialties as good as anywhere in the city. And all in a pleasant environment with waitresses who don't insult or humiliate you.
We stopped in for lunch on our way into town and more than satisfied our craving for smoked meat. We ordered the smoked meat platter - equal to meat from 1 1/2 sandwiches on a plate with another plate of rye bread. So you can make your own sandwiches with as much or as little meat as you want. Be sure to order the meat with some fat - not lean. It came with a plate of their to-die-for, typical Quebec double fried French fries.
For a sweet, we had a couple of their two-bite cinnamon Danish. Remember, however, that in a Kosher-style establishment, the sweets aren't usually made with butter, and so, aren't quite as rich.
That was enough for lunch. But on our way out of town we're stopping in to pick up some smoked fish from their fabulous selection. I saw smoked sable, whitefish and others. And we'll get some sliced tongue to take home. Yumm!

“Ex Montrealers come back here for their smoked meat fix!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

The smoked meat is the draw. It is served just as it should be. The French fries have the right amount of oil while maintaining their crispness. The service is fast and friendly. This place is not fancy, but it is clean and efficient. Take home a box of their famous party sandwiches made with chopped egg, tuna and salmon. They are addictive.
