One of our favourite Montreal downtown spots to grab a quick bite to eat is offering the promotion of the month. You can get a box of piping hot pasta from Brotelli Pasta Bar for only $1, and no you're not dreaming.
Next week, from September 16 to 20, you can enjoy their best selling Butcher's Fave pasta for the mere cost of a loonie. It's almost too good and too cheap to be true.
I had to see if there was a catch. And it turns out, there isn't one. Seriously. The promotion is celebrating the latest food app to come to Montreal; Ritual. While slightly different than the usual Uber Eats, Door Dash or Skip The Dishes, Ritual allows users to preorder their meals and pick it up at the restaurant without dealing with lineups.
To take advantage of the Brotelli's special, just download the app, enter your order and pick up your $1 dinner at the René-Lévesque location. There is absolutely no other purchase necessary.
There is a limit of 4 purchases per person during the week of the promotion and it's only available until 5 p.m. But that still means your total cost for 4 filling meals is $4, so get your orders in early.
Even though Brotelli's is a quick-service restaurant, they still prioritize using only the freshest ingredients. The Butcher's Fave pasta is a mix of fettuccine, meat sauce, parmesan cheese, and herbs served in a pasta-to-go box reminiscent of Chinese food containers.
And we thought those containers only existed in Hollywood movies!
The Ritual app is perfect for a to-go restaurant like Brotelli's. Ritual considers itself a 'social ordering app' where you can skip the in-house wait at restaurants and coffee shops, and if you can't get out of the office you can even piggyback off a coworkers order.
