Montreal has the highest number of restaurants per capita in Canada. With all these places competing to survive it's no wonder some might choose to Westernize their dishes in order to appeal to the masses. That makes it very difficult to find a restaurant that has remained authentic.

A recent thread on reddit has addressed this problem by asking Montrealers born outside of Canada, which restaurants serve the most authentic foods from their home countries. Here's what they came up with.

1. Cambodian: Marche Kei Phat
