Probably The Best Montreal Restaurants In Ville Saint Laurent

If you’re living in the heart of downtown or on the West Island, sometimes it can be difficult to convince friends to come your way. Ville Saint-Laurent is the perfect spot to meet halfway. This borough may not be everyone's favorite place to go, but when it comes to food, you can't deny V.S.L. takes it up a notch. If you ever find yourself around the Cote-Vertu or Du College metro regions, I highly suggest grabbing a bite at one of these fine institutions.

2. Daou

2373 Boulevard Marcel-Laurin

This restaurant will give you a genuine taste of Lebanese cuisine and culture. A family style restaurant, meals are served to accommodate those who want to share plates But you also have the option of ordering individual meals. Founded in 1975 by Nehme Daou, this restaurant features many vegetarian and healthy items to choose from. Personally, I find their eggplant out of this world! It’s also a great place for birthdays, as the waiters sing Happy Birthday in Arabic, loud and proud!
