My girl and I were looking for a place to eat on a quite Tuesday night. So we started walking around downtown to find a new place to eat or revisit one of our numerous favourite restaurants in Montreal. As with most people these days, what started off as a walk, slowly became a Pokemon Go mission to “catch ’em all” in the neighbourhood. Long story short, one thing led to another and we ended up at Centropolis Laval. I’m not often in Laval, so I had no idea of where to eat. Fortunately, I’ve heard nothing but great things about Souvlaki Bar, so we decided to check it out.
When was the last time you were in the mood for Greek food but were also thinking, “hey you know what would be really good right now? Persian food!” I don’t know about you but when I’m in the middle of shcoffing an all dressed chicken pita, the one thing that’s on my mind is beef kebab. No, not really. But if you ever wanted to have both types of food at the same time, or are having trouble coming to an agreement on where to go eat with someone, there’s a solution for you. Located in a modest strip mall in Kirkland is Grill Select; Greek and Persian Cuisine.
Cote des Neiges is one of, (if not the most) culturally diverse neighbourhoods in the entire city that it probably unlocks some sort of achievement in the Quebec proposed Charter of Values. Having grown up in the area, I can attest to the fact that this neighbourhood is diverse, colourful and is exactly what makes this city beautiful. You can walk five minutes in any direction and find the sights, sounds, tastes and flavours of a dozen different countries. Being said, call it a love letter or ode to my hood, here is a list of dishes you need to try when you’re in Cote des Neiges.
