Salad & the City

Original post from and full credit to Montreal Gazette

Montreal is famous for varying culinary delights including smoked meat sandwiches, poutine, bagels and the feast known as Cabane à Sucre. A dish that gets much less attention in our fair city is the salad. Now, I know what you may be thinking, “Salad?! How boring!” I am here to inform you that there are several restaurants in this city, some that you may not even suspect, that make a killer salad!


National Food Shop in Westmount is another perhaps unsuspecting place to pick up (or eat in) a custom made fresh salad. At the back counter of this high-end grocery store, you can find a fully loaded salad bar including kale, fresh veggies, sliced apples, hard boiled egg, chicken, tuna salad, crab salad, craisins, crunchy noodles and a long list of dressings such as Balsamic, Asian Sesame, Thai, Wafu, and Honey Mustard to name a few!

National Food Shop, 4903 Sherbrooke West, Westmount, 514-484-3541,

While poutine and lobster poutine and pulled pork poutine and breakfast poutine may get most of the attention, Montreal also has a wide variety of delectable and exciting salads to offer!
