An ode to Charles "Joe-Beef" McKiernan, a 19th century innkeeper and Montreal working-class hero, this resto serves up Quebecois classics like sausages, hot smoked salmon, and 18oz steaks (dubbed the "Monsieur's portion" on the menu) in the heart of Little Burgundy.
Dining at “the foot of the pig” ("Au pied de cochon") is a Montréal must, as Chef Martin Picard has created a temple for all things meaty, decadent, and over-the-top (read: poutine topped with foie gras!). While ultra-luxe ingredients like red wine chutney and pig's trotters are a common theme here, their application to low-brow foods is what sets this bustling restaurant apart. The price tag might not match the casual atmosphere, but exaggerated indulgences like pan seared foie gras with goat cheese and raspberries on a brioche will blind you to dollar signs.
They might have goofy-named menu items, but the items themselves are delicious, and includes a 16oz AAA angus rib steak and other amazing meats.
Diablos is the perfect spot in Montreal to experience authentic Southern American BBQ, including a very un-traditional burger option that arrives sans bun.
They got the name right here, that's for sure. Poutineville serves up a myriad of different poutines from standard to 15lb heart attack poutine with bacon, chicken, wieners, ground beef, ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese curds and gravy.
This Old Montreal resto (translated to "The Big Pig") serves up some truly gut-busting and delicious dishes, such as their Coca-Cola burger that’s drenched in Coca-Cola-flavored mayo.
