Do You Dare? Outrageously Good Eats: Montreal Edition

Montreal knows about food. Everyone in Canada has heard about their melt-in-your-mouth bagels, tender smoked meat and decadent poutine – not to mention the awesome “steamés” and creamy Orange Julep. But the metropolis also has some of the most outrageous dishes in the entire country. Things like foie gras poutine, two-pound burgers, and deep-fried Oreos…Is your mouth watering? We’ll stop. Read on for our list of the most outrageously good eats in Montreal.


Food Challenge from Le Gras Dur



Le Gras Dur is amazing, but their food challenge is insane. Completely insane. Their incredible award winning poutine leads things off, accompanied by a double patty burger featuring two bratwurst sausages and two chicken schnitzels. To drink, you’re served a jumbo root beer float and four deep-fried Oreos for dessert.

Address: 1660 Jarry E., Montréal
Hours: 11 am – 11 pm
Phone: (514) 722-4727


Wilensky’s Special from The Wilensky



A post shared by Tron Jeremy (@trontelljordan) on


This tiny lunch counter has been open for 82 years directly in the heart of Mile-End. The Wilsenky Special is a staple of the menu. All beef salami and bologna between a gooey egg roll with cheese and mustard. Don’t get anything else on it unless you want to completely butcher a classic.

Address: 34 Avenue Fairmount O, Montréal
Hours: 9 am – 4 pm
Phone: (514) 271-0247


Rim Reaper Meal from McKibbin’s Irish Pub


Make my cholesterol count great again.

You’ve got one hour to eat twelve wings drenched in ghost pepper — the hottest pepper in the world.  If you’d rather not go make a trip to the hospital, their curry poutine is more than worth a try.

Address: 1426 Bishop St., Montréal
Hours: 1130 am – 3 am
Phone: (514) 288-1580


Le Monstre from El Zaziummm


What have we done!? All this for a tshirt? @julien__b

A post shared by Kamakazi (@kamakazirock) on

Where the Tex meets the Mex. If you’re thinking a TexMex restaurant in Montreal doesn’t make much sense, you wouldn’t be wrong. But this is where you’ll find, Le Monstre, the largest chicken burger on the planet. You get a free t-shirt for putting this thing away. So there’s that.

Address: 1276 Laurier est, Montréal
Hours: 5 pm – 11 pm
Phone:  (514) 598-0344

Sliced Pogos from Chez Claudette


Poutine Heaven: The Sequel 🍟🌭 #ChezClaudette

A post shared by Christie Vuong (@christievuong) on


Chez Claudette is well known for their choice of poutine, but there’s obviously already an abundance of poutine on this list. Instead get a little funky and try the sliced pogo meal or meatball stew. Diner delicacies that will leave you scratching your head wondering why they’re not served everywhere.

Address: 351 Avenue Laurier E., Montréal
Hours: Open 24 Hours
Phone: (514) 279-5173


Smoked Meat Sandwich from Main Deli Steak House



We’re going to go ahead and say it; while both good, Main Deli’s smoked meat is better than Schwartz Deli. Is there a hit out on us yet? Even if you’re staying true to Schwartz smoked meat and rye, the potato verenekes here are completely insane. Order them up with sour cream or applesauce, or be a wild child and get both.

Address: 3864 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal
Hours: 10 am – 5 am
Phone: (514) 843-8126


Wu Dog from Chaud Dog


At Bonsecours Basin for fireworks tonight. Want a hot dog? #streetfoodmtl #HotDogs

A post shared by Chaud Dogs (@chauddogs) on


Chaud Dog is technically a food truck, but they bring it. If you’re not familiar with the Montreal food staple, the steamé, let us familiarize you: A steamed hot dog, mustard, relish, onions, sauerkraut. It’s good. And a classic. But Chaud Dogs steps it up with the “Wu Dog,” an Asian-inspired sausage with marinated carrots, Daikon radish, chicken skin, and hoisin sauce. So creative. So good.

Address:  It’s always moving. Follow their Twitter @chauddogs
Hours: 12pm-5pm


Foie Gras Poutine at Pied de Cochon



Pied de Cochon is a Montreal staple. We’ve known people to drive the six hours from Toronto to Montreal just to load up on food from their menu. It’s that good. But nothing may top their French fries cooked in duck fat with a slab of foie gras on top. Why not take two of the most delicious things in the world and put them together, hey?

Address: 536 Avenue Duluth E., Montréal
Hours: 5PM-12AM, Closed Mon and Tues
Phone: (514) 281-1114

Pate Chinois from Mâche

💤🍴💤🍴💤🍴 📚🔫

A post shared by @ohyaeeun on


Mâche has some incredible Quebecois comfort food, but the staple of the menu is their pâté chinois aka something like shepherds pie with slices of merguez. Restaurant Mâche does it right, serving fresh in a piping hot ceramic, just as if you made it home.

Address: 1655 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal
Hours: 1030 am – 11 pm
Phone: (514) 439-5535
