A Good Chinese Addition: Pret A Manger

kit | Aug 24, 2006 05:19 PM

A relatively new addition to the noodle shops in the Guy-Concordia area is Pret-A-Manger. The name of the restaurant is deceiving because it serves Cantonese style cooking.

For fans of Beijing in Chinatown, I must say that is it slightly superior than Beijing and in a great location. I think the owners were former employees of Beijing as he is very familiar looking. Prices are very decent for the location.

I can't vouch for the quality of everything that is on the menu but what I tried yesterday and my companion that has been there on more than one occasion has said most (ie. 9/10) of what he's tried is good.

There are two menus both in french/english/chinese. I can't remember in English what I was on the larger one page double sided 8x11 sized menu. One was chicken in a heated pot, the other was breaded fish something and the other was a tofu, vegie & sea cucumber dish. All was good and service was attentive & polite considering it is a chinese restaurant.

Just spreading the word out to keep something that is decent alive...many chinese restaurants in the area have closed recently.

Location is corner of St-Mathieu & Ste-Catherine: 1809 Ste-Catherine 514-931-8889
