Multiculturalism characterizes Montreal. This gives the city great wealth and shapes its neighborhoods.

Melchorita: for an authentic Peruvian breakfast

Les 2 fours : the best chicken in town

As the name suggests, the restaurant does indeed have 2 beautiful ovens to roast a chicken exactly as the Peruvians know how to do so well. The specialty is of course the chicken cooked on embers, but also the pizzas. I highly recommend the chicken, with salad and french fries, not to mention the delicious green pepper sauce typical of Peru (named salsa de Huacatay) and an Inca Kola (yes , you read it! An Inca Kola!).

Near the market Jean Talon: to prepare latina foods

We do not have a precise address to provide, but one thing is certain: the neighborhoods of the Jean Talon market do not lack Latin addresses to find the ingredients necessary to prepare the best meal of Latin America. In addition, many authentic Peruvian products are easily recognizable by their bright red label.

Restaurant Mochica : to taste Peruvian gastronomy

Did you know that the second top chef in the world is a Peruvian? Gaston Acurio was elected best chef of Latin America in 2013. He own a well-known restaurants in Lima. If you can not get there, there is a Peruvian gourmet restaurant in Montreal!

Mochica was the name of a pre-Columbian civilization. In Montreal, this is the name given to a restaurant recognized for the quality of its food served. First of all, when you enter, it is the beauty of the scenery that surprises us. The owners are of Montreal and Peruvian origin and, like us, are passionate about Peru … more precisely of its table.

You will have the opportunity to try dishes that are real masterpieces. It is the only place I know in Montreal where alpaca is served (but probably not the only one?). A true delight!

In Subway : Station Sherbrooke, suivi d’une petite marche de 5 minutes

Mi Casa: to dance on true Latin rhythms in an authentic bar

As we strolled through the streets of Montreal, a Dominican recommended the bar “Mi Casa” for his rhythms of merengue, bachata, cumbia, salsa and more. We discovered a lively latino bar, very authentic (I was almost the only one “none latino” from the bar) with a nice atmosphere. For a caliente evening, Mi Casa is to try.

How to get there:

90 Rue Jean-Talon O,
Montréal, QC H2R 2W7

El Toro: perfect for a simple but delicious meal on the south shore of Montreal

If you live on the south shore of Montreal, it sometimes happens that you do not want to get stuck in the traffic. We went once to the Salvadoran restaurant El Toro in Longueuil where there is a warm and family atmosphere. Restaurant simple and small grocery at once, you will surely find a new dish to try.

How to get there:
