Photo cred - Eva Rees What better way to start your evening than with a Caesar? As always, Montreal boasts an exceptional array of options. These aren’t just any old glasses of Clamato juice with a splash of booze and a hint of Tobasco. No siree! This Canadian cocktail, invented in Calgary and stampeded its way across the territories, find some of its best mixes here in our fair city. Here’s a list of some of Montreal’s best...
In the humble neighborhood of NDG, this bar/restaurant, named after B.B. King’s guitar, serves a Caesar with fresh seafood and delicious olives. Who better to turn to for the best than celeb chef Chuck Hughes? Truly a Caesar of champions in both its size and flavor. Served in an old timey lager glass, it is filled to the brim. Did we mention they free pour the vodka? And we mustn’t forget to mention it comes with a giant crab claw to enjoy! Looking for a classic Caesar? Look no further. No tricks or fuss. Just a good old fashioned version of the cocktail we love. Take a trip to the Mile End and sip on co-owner Jacques Seguin’s sweet and savory Caesar. Using the freshest of ingredients and nicely topped with a big dollop of horseradish. Great vibe and good music to boot! What would a list of top MTL Caesar’s be without some mention of a hip new bar on St. Laurent? A bit pricey (a whopping $11) but it comes packed with extras. Pepperoncini, pickles, and olives oh my! This is a very Worcestershire-saucy Caesar if there ever was one. It’s popular for a 5 à 7, where house cocktails are on special and double ounces are half off. This bar just off of St. Cats has an amazing terrasse and offers one of the most well balanced Caesars. Nicely priced at $6.25. Not your average Caesar. Special ingredients include red wine, olive juice and real horseradish. This happening bar on Roy knows how to treat a beloved drink with love. At only $7 it is a sure fire tasty treat! It’s no frills, but all thrills. A Caesar with a kick, their mix includes horseradish. Grade A Caesar should be spicy, if nothing else. Definitely a great aperitif and the flavors will sit on your mouth and pack a great punch. In their renowned Brazil Caesar, one can expect cachaça in place of vodka as a tropical interpretation of the drink. This makes the cocktail particularly potent. They also use a spicy Asian lemon to add a little sourness to the Bloody. Step aside caipirinha! Head here on Oyster Thursday when Caesars are more elaborate than ever. Served with a tiger shrimp and oyster for the occasion, this is a decadent Caesar if there ever was one. A sample concoction includes Clamato, celery salt, Smirnoff, lemon, chipotle Tabasco and Sriracha. Did we mention sometimes there’s smoked meat involved? How much more Montreal can you get?
To get your free burger, head to Winneburger at Jean-Talon Market on Saturday or Sunday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The earlier the better, though, because they're only giving out burgers while supplies last.
According to an email from Winneburger, each burger will contain a secret ingredient. But you won't find out what it is until you get there.
"The FREE burger is a burger with a secret ingredient. People who stop by [this] Food Truck will find out on the spot!" the email says.
Winneburger is located in a converted '80s RV that's been transformed into a commercial kitchen. It belongs to the folks at Nouveau Palais so — not only will your burger be free — you know it'll be damn good, too.
