The famous Chinatown!
Mythical and intriguing, it transports us to another country as we walk around the streets. There are so many restaurant options for such a small area. For some people, venturing into one of these places takes courage, because most of the time you don’t really know what to expect. Well, we recommend you to try some of them, because there are a lot of amazing restaurants that are worth discovering.
Here are our favourite places to eat in Montreal's Chinatown.
Shabu Shabu Kagayaki
Shabu Shabu Kagayaki
is a typical Japanese hotpot restaurant. You will find a wide selection of meat and vegetables that you will have the pleasure to cook in a tasty broth directly at your table. Shabu Shabu
is the perfect place for a comforting meal with friends or family.
You will enjoy authentic Korean dishes at Chez Bong located on Saint-Laurent; the atmosphere is warm and the food comforting. Our favourite items on the menu are undoubtedly the bibimbaps: this traditional Korean dish is usually composed of rice, meat, various vegetables and a fried egg. They can be served in a crackling stone bowl, which keeps your dish very hot until the last bite.
At the Impérial, you can experiment with dimsums. These small dishes traditionally served for brunch or lunch, are an integral part of authentic Chinese cuisine. They can be served steamed, fried or pan-fried, all of which can be savoured with the fingers. Servers usually come with small carts of food, allowing you to choose your dimsums directly!
Qing Hua Dumplings
Qing Hua Dumplings specializes in traditional soup dumplings freshly prepared for your order. It is possible to see the incredible work of the cooks making these little delights one by one. You can have them steamed or fried. Both options are equally tasty!
This restaurant attracts attention because it is possible to admire the talent of the "noodle master" through the front window of the establishment. You will be dazzled by the incomparable work that makes each bowl of soup unique. The menu offered is quite short; the traditional Lanzhou soup remains the best option, in my opinion. A tasty broth, tender beef, freshly prepared homemade noodles, simple and perfectly executed. For the curious, a very large Asian grocery store is located at the lower level.
The Orange Rouge
is one of Chinatown's best-kept secrets. It is on the corner of De La Gauchetière and Saint-Urbain streets that you can discover a charming location with a modern decor that maintains the authenticity of the neighborhood. You will enjoy a revamped cuisine that is full of flavour and very affordable.
Pho Bang New York
The Pho Bang New York
is on every list of the Best Pho soups in Montreal
. This restaurant is very famous for the authenticity of its soups. An impressive variety is offered as well as several classics of Vietnamese cuisine.
