More than a few people were disappointed that there were no vegan options on yesterday's Poutine Week post. Out of 30 restos, not one had a fully vegan offering. Vegan Montrealers, we heard your cries for poutine pleasure, so we found you the Raw Vegan Poutine.
Everything about this poutine is 100% without animal products or by-products. Besides the gravy, the poutine isn't even cooked! It may seem strange, but here is the delicious breakdown:
French Fries → Seasoned Jicama Slices (a turnip-esque sweet root)
Gravy → Mushroom-Onion Sauce
Cheese Curds →Creamy Cashew-based Cheese(no dairy at all!)
Make it yourself with this recipe, and feast your eyes on the photos below!
Foody Savior, built by Montrealers Mohand Rabhi and Félix Gouhier, aims to reduce food waste by connecting restaurant and store owners with bargain hunters.
According to a statement shared with MTL Blog, consumers will be able to buy this otherwise wasted food for one-third the regular price.

Foody Savior says about 20 businesses are currently using the app but that it's expanding.
Right now, the statement says, those businesses are located in the Plateau-Mont-Royal, Mile End, Pointe-Saint-Charles, Hochelaga, Villeray, Ahunstic-Cartierville and Côte-Vertu boroughs and neighbourhoods.
The app is currently available on Google Play and is coming to the App Store too, though it's unclear when that will happen.

In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.
Hockey's holy chalice has had many things in it from beer to a baptized baby but never poutine — at least as far as we can tell!
Now that’s fine dining. 🏆🤌
The people behind Flamos Peri Peri Chicken are betting that a new twist on a classic recipe will help them break into Montreal's crowded chicken market.
The brand-new chain restaurant recently opened its first location at 72, boul. Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Châteauguay with a menu inspired by African, South American and European flavours and headlined with a unique and interesting twist on classic piri piri chicken.

By all accounts, Montrealers love their Portuguese-style chicken, grilled to perfection and bathed in piri piri sauce, but set aside those presuppositions when it comes to the uniquely flavoured bird coming out of Flamos' kitchen.
"We have been in the restaurant business for 32 years and have always been challenging ourselves to open different concepts over these years by always being creative, innovative and developing different and great tasting meals that people love," a spokesperson told MTL Blog. "We have succeeded in creating a very unique taste. Our chicken is unlike anything you have ever tried."

Aside from their signature chicken, they're also offering refreshing salads, bowls, sandwiches, a variety of imaginative poutines, and desserts. There's also a selection of sauces and a vegan burger.
But wait, there's more. Don't even think about walking away without an order of Coq Mac n' Cheese, cooked with karaage popcorn chicken, cavatappi pasta, aged cheddar, mozzarella, Parmigiana Reggiano, Grana Padano, green onions, and finished with a drizzle of chipotle aioli sauce.
Flamos Peri Peri Chicken is opening locations in Lachenaie and Terrebonne in August and September, respectively, while Ontarians will be able to enjoy this unique cuisine in Mississauga and Kitchener in the fall, with more restaurants to open next year.
