This restaurant is known around town for its massive portions and the proof is in the pudding (aka the shawarma taco).
Whenever you're craving a decadent dish, you can head to Shawarmaz, which also has a location in Laval, and ask for the "Tacoz."
This iconic dish is made of beef shawarma, pomegranate molasses and a sesame cream sauce, served in a tannour bread. It's also topped with fried avocado chunks, melted cheese and served with French fries and Mexican salsa on the side. All this tasty goodness for $13.99.
This spot also offers vegan options like the four pieces of falafel with sesame cream sauce or the tabbouleh made with parsley, chopped mint and tomatoes. There are all kinds of unique menu options so no matter what your dietary restrictions are you can find something delicious to munch on.
For those who like to keep things a little more classic, there's the chicken shawarma, poutine or even a Lebanese sushi platter that'll have you licking your fingers all the way home.
There's no doubt your stomach will leave Shawarmaz feeling full and satisfied.
Boucherie Slovenia, a boulevard Saint-Laurent institution for 50 years, will soon serve its last spicy sausage.
The iconic home of enormous Eastern European-style sandwiches — Slovenian sausage and towering cold-cuts were staples — will close its doors forever on January 29, said the owners, Lourdes Rodrigues and Jean Teixeira, in a Facebook post.
"Thank you to all our loyal customers, for the wonderful years," they said.
With a menu overflowing with huge, yet affordable, meat and mustard sandwiches — sauerkraut, pickles and Cherry Cokes were also standard — Boucherie Slovenia is the latest of the Main's iconic old-school institutions to close.
The beloved Moishes steakhouse announced its closure under the strain of the pandemic in the summer of 2020.
The Boucherie Slovenia Facebook post asks readers to share their memories of the restaurant and butcher shop, with many offering childhood stories of visiting for a pepperette sandwich or their "underrated" smoked meat, which is "the best in the city," according to one commenter.
Many apparent long-time customers said they wouldn't know where to go to find dishes comparable to Boucherie Slovenia's treasured menu items.
Others remarked on how yet another classic Montreal restaurant is closing its doors. "Nothing replaces these fantastic old shops," said one person. "It's a loss. The rich character of the boulevard is disappearing."
To fulfill your sugar cravings in front of a good Christmas movie, you can now add a Grinch frosting on your Puffs, which is made with white chocolate, green dye and Oreo mint cookies. Consider this flavour Grinch-approved.
If you're ever this mix doesn't sound appetizing to you, you can also try the cinnapufs vanilla and cinnamon frosting, which will remind you of the traditional cookies you likely make with your family during this time of the year.
As for the drinks side, Mr. Puffs is embracing the Quebec holiday traditions, offering eggnog and caramel lattes.
And for all the peppermint fans, you can also enjoy the iconic peppermint mocha latte, which was on the menu back in 2020.
If you don't like coffee, Mr. Puffs also offers a selection of artisanal hot chocolates with Belgian chocolate and caramel, triple chocolate, S'mores, red velvet, cookies and cream and Dulce de Leche.
Note that you can always mix two flavours in your box of 6, 12 or 55 since these new icings are on the same list as the classics.
So, for example, you can order the Grinch topping with the inevitable Choco-loco. Best of both worlds!
