I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; K.F.C. is better than K.F.C… wait, what? You heard me, Korean Fried Chicken is better than K.F.C. Wherever it is in Montreal, I’ve had it. From my current favourite and gold standard Comon in Verdun, to the OG chicken spots Dawa and Mon Ami in NDG or Hoya in the Plateau and the new comers Olivia’s and Matjip, I’ve gone in deep. I think I’ve eaten my weight in Korean fried chicken in Montreal, all 185 pounds. Stop laughing. So you know I had to investigate when I got word that there was a new spot in the West Island for KFC. How could I say no? I had to. It’s my duty, for science… and safety. This week I visited Corrilla in Kirkland.
What are some of your food goals? Some people might strive to bake the perfect cake or want travel the world to eat at a Michelin starred restaurants. Others may want to compete and crush 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes or try and have their bodies process dairy without fireworks and regret. Mine are pretty simple. One was to try and find the best pho in Montreal and more recently, to eat at all the dumpling restaurants in the Westisland. Seems so funny to be saying that, as if there are options in the west, but there are! I checked out this new spot called Dumpling King to add to the list!
I noticed last night at 8:30pm that the sky was almost completely dark… you know what that means… It’s one of my favourite times of the year: ask all the teenagers and pre-teens in you life if they’ve started school yet, or ask when they start or if they’re ready to start school and watch them flip their shit. The best. But more importantly, we’ve still got some summer left to squeeze out a few more trips to La Ronde, fire up the grill and piss off your neighbours, sit on the balcony and watch your old Italian Neighbour hose down the sidewalk for 3 hours and pound down a few more litres of the quintessential summer frozen treat, ICE CREAM. If you follow me on social media, (Twitter or Instagram) you’d know I’m a complete fiend for ice cream and have traveled across the city to find the best. Here is my second instalment (part 1 here) of my favourite ice cream shops in Montreal.
