Evenko's massive food festival, YUL EAT Montreal, just announced their return and official dates for 2018.
As if we need another food festival in this city, but YUL EAT is a little special. Where most food festivals have a running theme or featured culture, YUL EAT is dedicated simply to what we love - Montreal!
What makes YUL EAT so special, you ask? Well - this is Montreal foodie heaven!
The best of the best food trucks will be on hand serving up their dedicated delicious dishes (try saying that one fast), and there will be live music, performances and tons of fun going on.
However, as evenko usually does, they will be bringing in an impressive roster of big names to the festival as they do every year.
YUL EAT holds a mouth-watering program with a new formula that will delight culinary creativity with dedicated keynote speakers, cooking demos and latte art challenges like years prior.
To switch it up a bit this year, the 5th edition of evenko's massive food festival will be dispersed throughout Montreal!
YUL EAT Festival will go down at Montreal's Quartier des spectacles, but they are also offering up events at Montreal's Société des Arts Technologiques (S.A.T.), place de la Paix and other various locations to be announced in the coming months.
YUL EAT Festival will be cooking up events spread over a whole entire week! This is the last major festival from evenko for the summer season, so get yourself ready to indulge in the final days of Montreal summer!
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
