longtime reader of chowhound but first post:
i'm going to montreal again this week after a 2 month hiatus, and looking forward to trying out new places while also visiting a few favourites. I will try anything at least once (except lamb), the only conditions being cheap (below 15) and downtown-area lunches. This is my preliminary list, it's rather asian-centric, perhaps because of the price constraints. I would love any input and reccomendations!
the thai place in faubourg
coco coqueto (from recent mirror review)
bombay palace lunch buffet (on st. catherine's)
