I'm headed to Montreal this weekend to cover as many regional/traditional/locavore-type foods as possible for my website, Eat Your World, and I'm finding limited places to try such cuisine familiale as tourtiere, pate chinois, and pouding chomeur. (Please forgive my lack of diacritics.)
So far La Binerie Mont-Royal is definitely on the list (for feves au lard, as well), but I've heard its tourtiere leaves much to be desired. Where else? Just crossed Chez Claudette off after reading about frozen meat pies and "not what it used to be" reports. La Cantine?
This 2009 thread was helpful--http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6578... I'm not necessarily looking for modern takes on the old stuff, just good, relatively accurate versions of them.
Any advice? Thanks so much!
