so, i lived in Montreal for 5 years, but suffered from McGill-Ghetto-Plateau-itis, whereby I generally stuck to places to that let me bring my own cheap dep wine and lined my stomach on a student budget. Some of my spots included Shambala for the lovely Tibetan, Santropol and Lola Rosa for awesome lunches, and Bistro Duluth for a nice date and lingering.

now i'm coming back for a weekend on the more generous but still frugal budget of a schoolteacher, and since my younger days have expanded my tastebuds and now have a penchant for Indian, vegetarian, Middle Eastern and Mediterreanean. I love a great cut of salmon or a great tabule salad, or anything with olives or artichokes or beets, and I'm a sucker for a good squash or lentil soup. i am open to any and all ethnic cuisines but not so much the creamy French and Italian stuff, I am looking for destination dining on a budget - places to write home about, bring a friend to, make a night of.

so...suggest away montreal CHers!
