Le Bird Bar

Montreal’s Le Bird Bar & its foodora connection.

I must confess that I am quickly becoming a huge fan of foodora, the on-demand food delivery service.

Le Bird Bar joined foodora a few months ago. You must check the foodora site first to see which days you can order from Le Bird Bar. At the moment they do not provide the service Thursday through Sunday. “We are really happy with the arrangement,” Lallouz told me. “Customers are so pleased to have this opportunity to get our chicken and other favorites right to their door. At the moment it is the only type of delivery service we provide and the system works very well. Foodora was so reputable, it was an easy choice to go with them.”

Scores Restaurants

Popular Scores Restaurants continues with expansion of trendy new Grand Saladier feature!

From the moment Scores Restaurants (https://www.scores.ca) made its debut in Quebec in 1995 I was a fan. Renowned for its famous Rotisserie chicken and delicious back ribs, it now has over 38 restaurants and counting in Quebec and Ontario.

A subsidiary of Montreal-based company Imvescor Inc (imvescor.ca) which also oversees the operations of Baton Rouge, Toujour Mikes, Ben & Florentine and Pizza Delight, Scores always appealed to me for many reasons. It starts off with their terrific all you can eat, soup, salad and fruit bar, a great way to start a meal. You can literally make that experience your meal or for a small add on price get things rolling with some soup and a wide array of choices.

Dunn’s Famous Decarie Boulevard

Dunn’s Famous Decarie Boulevard benefits from a winning formula.

Nine years ago a Dunn’s Famous opened on Decarie Boulevard near Jean Talon in the spot that once housed La Diligence (The Stage Coach). It shares the same parking lot with Kanda Sushi and Amir. Expertly run by General Manager Tony Sama and co-manager Eric Blake, this is well-oiled machine which is always crowded. They know how to treat the client here. The dining room can seat 105. They also have a busy takeout business and offer home delivery from 5 pm to 11 pm., the latter requiring a minimum $15 order before tax. The place is open 24 hours Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and up until 2 am on other days.

Mikado: Montreal celebrates 30 years of serving some of the best sushi in town. There was a time not too long ago when I did not particularly care for  sushi. We’d go to a sushi restaurant or pick it up for home and I’d generally order chicken or salmon teriyaki. However, while frequenting the popular…


Pacini restaurants offer up plenty of variety and announces new program battling food waste.

Pizzeria is charming choice for dinner in Old Montreal.
