Montreal's New "Asian Street Food" Bar & Terrasse Opens On Ontario Street

Street food is a fairly new concept in Montreal, but even our gourmet-ish food trucks got nothing on the amazing eats that can be found on Asian streets in city's like Bangkok or on the beaches of Bali. Now there's no need to be envious, or even travel, as Grenade, Montreal's first Oriental snack bar has officially opened.

Grenade's bar and kitchen just started serving drinks and street eats this past Monday, and will continue to dole of the flavours of Asia all year long. A good thing too, because Grenade boasts a lineup pretty creative and appetizing drinks and dishes. Grenade also has an awesome terrasse, which definitely deserved mentioning.

Depending on how hungry you are, Grenade offers a variety of menu items to satiate your stomach. Those looking for some light munchies can order from the snack menu (masala peanuts, taro chips, fish cakes) or nab a steamed bun for something more filling, which comes in grilled beef, duck, tofu, pork belly or marinated salmon varieties.

For more of a real meal, Grenade has a long list of street food dishes like satay scallops, Indonesian fried tofu, curry laksa, and many more. You can also go big (and not go home) with a huge share-able meal and order a whole marinated duck, stuffed pork belly, or a fried whole fish. Check out the full menu here.

No bar, even a snack bar, is complete without a legit drink list, and Grenade has one that is quite impressive. A long list of beer, wines, sakes, whiskeys, and other spirits are on the drink menu (as you'd expect) but the real stand-outs are the two types of strange-but-great sangria and Asian-inspired cocktails like the Saketini and Bubble Gin & T.

You can find Grenades street eats and alcoholic treats at 1603 Ontario Street East (map), and be sure to head over their Facebook page to learn more about Montreal's first Asian snack bar.
