The Montreal Gazette ran quite a detailed look at the North African bread bakeries, pastry shops, butchers, grocers, cafés and restaurants along the stretch of Jean-Talon E. between St-Michel and Pie-IX" http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette...
Worth an explanation, but please, no "Moorish-style arches" - our fake Italianate arches in Petite Italie are bad enough... Susan Semanak has found some treats I was unaware of - will definitely seek out a "monchon" or a "koca".
The butcher I liked a bit west of there (Ibervillle) who made great merguez seems to have closed since Le Coin du Mexique moved across the street into his former premises.
This is part of an occasional series, "Tastes of our town" - there is a link to an earlier article on Côte-des-Neiges, and they are open to suggestions for other neighbourhoods - presumably also in Laval and the nearby South Shore (Brossard)?
