Unfortunately it didn't work out very well for me because my date didn't show up but this is a great and cheap idea for a light dinner.

Go to Vielle Europe (everything in the photo: mortadella, chorizo, some special salami, pata negra, 6 yr old cheddar cheese, hard goat cheese marinaded in wine, amazing olives and (not shown) fresh baguette olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar) was just under twenty bucks. Super easy, helpful staff, SAQ nearby (I splurged and had a bottle of osoyoos larose (IMO the best Canadian wine)) and parks nearby where this could easily put together for a nice romantic picnic.

Oh, and the free trout or smoked salmon samples at the store are also a benefit :)

3855 St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1X9 ‎
(514) 842-5773 ‎

PS the picture does not do it justice a few of my friends were over as I put it together and were salivating like dogs haha (they ended up sharing it with me too)

This is one of the cheapest places in town to buy good cheese and one of the only to buy top end iberico ham
