Greetings from a Montreal 'hound. I'll be visiting family in To next week and since we have two days in the city before heading to the country, I thought I'd try to explore a little beyond my usual favourites.
Ever since seeing the Singapore episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, I've been fantasizing about Hainanese Chicken Rice, without ever having had it. (Montreal is known for many culinary delights, but the depth & breadth of its Asian food - particularly anything Singaporean/Malaysian - is unfortunately not one of them.)
So, my fellow hounds, is there somewhere in To that has an amazing Hainanese Chicken Rice that will quench my fantasies? Somewhere easily reachable by public transit is ideal, but car might be OK too as we may be able to swing a lift.
I searched the board and found a couple of references: Restoran Malaysia (Richmond Hill), Merlion (Dundas), Phoenix Restaurant (Markham), Mum's (McCowan and 16 Ave.), but nothing definitive, and the only really positive review is the one out in Markham - perhaps a bit far?
Thank you in advance, hounds! I am very happy to return the favour should you visit our fair Montreal.
