For most people, it goes without saying that the way to our hearts is through our stomachs. Think about it, what's more comforting after an emotionally taxing day than going to your favourite restaurant and letting your taste buds go wild with new flavour-filled colourful dishes?

Several restaurants in Montreal offer some extremely colourful options that are sure to add joy to your day simply by looking at them. This is what we call the best of both worlds. Whether it's a pink hamburger or purple waffles, these restaurants have not hesitated to add a funky touch to their menu. And it has proven to be really successful as an initiative.

Since these meals look so good when served, you won't be able to stop taking pictures of these items before eating them ... Do it for the 'gram, as they say!

Purple Waffles

Cost: Starting at $5

Address: The Blue Boy; 150 Ave. du Mont-Royal E.

Fridays and Saturdays from 12.30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Sundays from 12 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Why you need to try it: Served at The Blue Boy, you will find this delicious waffle that is tinted brown on the outside hides a pronounced mauve-coloured inside.

Pink Hamburger

Cost: About $15

Address: La Belle and La Boeuf; various locations

When: The branch schedule may vary.

Why you need to try it: Made with pink bread, marinated chicken with hibiscus syrup and cranberry juice, apple and cranberry salsa, garnished with fig jelly, cranberry mayo and a red curly salad, this burger is both pretty to behold and totally delicious. You can, however, get it only for a limited time since it will be removed from the menu at the end of October so hurry!
