And thankfully for the literal billions of us who love Portuguese chicken, Montreal happens to be literally full of delicious Portuguese chicken restaurants. And although they're all amazing in their own right, a handful really do stand out.
This Plateau spot has a bit of a cult following in Montreal, and for good reason: the food is phenomenal. Portuguese chicken is their obvious specialty, but for some extra variety, try their poutine, with chunks of their delicious chicken and chorizo.
Honestly, there's nothing quite like a delicious, crispy, moist, flavourful chunk of chicken from Portugalia. Saturated with their overly delicious Piri Piri sauce, this spot is sure to please every single time.
Honestly, if you're looking for an incredibly comfortable and welcoming spot to go and eat some delicious and perfectly seasoned Portuguese chicken, look no further. Chez Duval is here to save your whole meal/day/week/life.
I literally love the food at this Villeray restaurant. Although their chicken is a clear standout on their menu, don't let that stop you from branching out and trying the rest of their menu. Everything is good - especially their grilled octopus.
Literally, the chicken here is exactly what dreams are made of. It's perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and dripping with flavour; the best part, though? Every single thing on the menu is exactly as good as the chicken.
Located in Montreal's St. Michel, O Cantinho has some of the tastiest Portuguese chicken I've ever tried. Protip, though? Definitely try their crisp, flavourful chicken, and follow it up with a taste of their incredibly delicious chorizo.
This Villeray Portuguese restaurant will forever be one of my own personal favourites. Their chicken is incredibly tasty and cooked to absolute perfection, and the rest of their menu? Just as awesome. Protip: take their mixed plate, with chicken, pork, chorizo, and more.
Situated in Montreal's West Island, Les Trois Marias seriously knows how to make one awesome Portuguese chicken dish. Their chicken is literally swimming in flavour; and their fries are out of this world, too.

Montreal's Mile End skatepark is set to host a huge nighttime block party this September as part of MAPP_MTL's sixth edition.
The event, billed as "Montreal's projection mapping festival," is a celebration of digital art. The block party will feature monumental digital creations cast on the surrounding buildings, illuminating the skatepark as electronic music plays.
Local restaurant Nakamichi will be serving Japanese fried chicken and pastries over the course of the electric event.
In a press release, MAPP_MTL says there will also be a "small shopping area" showcasing local businesses.
Digital artworks will include work by artist Delphine Dussoubs (Dalkhafine) and minute-long projections by artists from Quebec and around the world, as well as what the festival describes as "works improvised by creators and members of the public [unfolding] in real-time."
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
