I've said i before and I will say it again: there is so much more to Montreal than just the downtown and Plateau core.
Outside this bubble lies a whole new world of possibilities. Cheap rent, great food, good people, all the things you love about Montreal, but even better.
I'm making it a mission to highlight some of Montreal's great restaurant that is outside downtown, but totally worth the trip. Because by going there, not only will you enjoy a great meal, but also discover a new part of town.
That said, a new family-run Portuguese chicken spot came across our radar, and I wanted all those south-west island folks to be the first to know. It's called Viana Grillades Portugaises, and you gotta try it now!
Located in the heart of Lasalle, they've got a super cute yet casual vibe and decor, and all the typical dishes you would expect from a place that does Portuguese rotisserie-style food. Chicken, lamb, fish, fresh salads, rice, and of course - pastel de nata.
Here's a little photo expose for you to feast your eyes on.
This is the spot to visit if you're in the area and very hungry. Portions are generous and the price is nice! Half a chicken with all the sides is only $13.95. Nice.
