The best places to eat in Montreal are perfectly imperfect. They might have mismatched or wobbly tables set-up too close to the kitchen. They might have greasy menus (and cutlery), busy servers who try to hurry you along, and kitschy interiors.

When it’s 5 AM and you’re looking for a place to grab a bite in the West Island, there aren’t very many options. Sure, you can find the odd 24 hour fast food joint here and there, but even when you’re in the sort of frame of mind which makes chowing down on a burger as the sun’s about to rise seem like a reasonable idea, McDonald’s probably won’t be your first choice. Luckily, as anyone who’s spent a significant amount of time in the West Island knows, there’s a much better option for food that’s available 24/7: Chenoy’s Deli.

Being from the Plateau, I’d never had much interaction with the West Island, and I wanted to understand more about what it’s like to live in the area. Given my past journalistic expeditions, I decided to approach learning about the West in a way which best befit my, um, research methods: by spending an entire night at Chenoy’s.
