Walking In Quebec

The cultural capital of French Canada is Montreal and the city has a culinary spot that’s quite a bit unique from other Canadian cities like Toronto. There have also been a number of immigration waves to the city that has changed Montreal’s food landscape more than just the connection of cultural impact from French and English Canadians.

A walking tour from Fitz & Follwell Co is one must-try way visitors to Montreal can wander through the different flavors of the city. First, they accommodate a small group of visitors on a five-hour walking tour of Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Montreal’s main drag for their “Flavours of the Main” Montreal food travel and stops at certain restaurants and cafes along the way where special sampling of the food have been organized.

A fascinating street and is a sort of microcosm of Montreal history and culture is the city of Saint-Laurent. It expands across the island of Montreal in the Old Port of Montreal from its base at the Saint Lawrence River and ahead passes through several immigrant communities Chinatown and Little Italy alike.

The trip continues onward to the Plateau section of Saint-Laurent after munching on some Chinese sweets and teas. On this part of the tour, you shouldn’t be surprised that Schwartz’s Deli and its world-famous smoked-meat sandwiches are in the spotlight. This deli has been standing strong for almost 100 years now and the lines typically stretch down the block and were founded by a Jewish immigrant from Romania.

And what is the precise reason why these smoked-meat sandwiches that have people so captivated? Well,  before smoking it in their smokehouse, the deli prepares and cures its own meat for ten days. With almost unimaginable slices of smoked meat and served on rye bread with mustard, the sandwiches themselves are stockpiled.

The tour drops by a well-known diner and pop-in the city’s two most famous bagel shops – Fairmount and St-Viateur after stepping to the Mile End neighborhood. For the last 60 years, the question of which one makes the more delicious bagel has bitterly disunited Montreal and is candidly a matter of personal preference, as these shops are rather phenomenal.

Jean-Talon, Montreal’s farmer’s market, is open year-round but is most dynamic every summer when local farmers present their organic superfoods to trade in the city. There are also prepared food shops, bakers baked goodies and Quebec food stalls that sell things like cheese, maple syrup, and ice wine excluding its many produce stalls.

To summarize, the tour is a great way to experience a small taste of what makes Montreal’s food spot is so great. While repeat visitors to Montreal will have a hold of restaurant ideas for their next trip, those short-term visitors to the city will definitely come off with a great allocate of details on the city’s rich history and different cultures.
