Desperatly Seeking Souvlaki

Genevieve | Jun 7, 2002 11:28 AM

I am an exiled Montrealer, and if you need to know 3 things about Montreal is that we make amazing smoked meat sandwiches, most of us speak french and we have the greatest souvlaki joints around.

Although i go up there a lot, my souvlaki friends just wont transport well..

So can you recommend a true souvlaki place here??

The ones i have had so far have been, over lettuced (iceberg mind you!!) Tzaziki sauce has ALWAYS been as bland as plain yogurt. And they seem to think that the thicker the pita, the less meat they have to put it.

All i want is a punchy, garlicy sauce, a well marinated meat not too much gristle, some tomatoes, onions, lettuce all rolled into a nice firm but chewy pita bread....

Impossible?? I shall wait and see!!
