TasteMontreal and Burnbrae Farms are partnering with 30 beloved Montreal restaurants to launch the premiere Montréal, Délici-œufs!, an eggstravaganza celebrating the versatile egg as an ingredient, taking a starring role in different dishes through June 3, 2022.
Montréal, Délici-œufs! is encouraging diners to reconnect with local favourites and discover new egg-centric eateries. Each restaurant is featuring its own creative dish celebrating the humble egg in any form, from cocktails to desserts, as a topping on pizzas, pasta and ramen bowls.
For every Montréal, Délici-œufs! dish sold, Burnbrae Farms will donate a hard-boiled egg to Breakfast Club of Canada to help feed local children and youth in need.
Among the restaurants are local favourites Greenspot, Bucky’s, and Satay Bros. You can see them all at this site: https://tastemontreal.ca/delici-oeufs?locale=en#vendors
To sweeten the deal, each participating restaurant will give away a free dinner for two throughout the event on TasteMontréal’s Instagram. Montrealers will crown a winner by voting for their favourite on the TasteMontréal website (https://tastemontreal.ca/delici-oeuf) and be entered to win a grand prize.
Personally, there is nothing I like better than going to a restaurant for breakfast. This gave me an excuse to return to Greenspot at 3041 Notre-Dame St W, Montreal, Quebec H4C 1N9. A Montreal institution, Greenspot opened in the Saint-Henri neighbourhood in 1947. A relic in time, the restaurant remains adorned in its original decor, from the vinyl booths to tabletop jukeboxes. Here you can find hot dogs, poutine, smoked meat, burgers and much more. But it is the heaping breakfast plates that draw me.
For Montréal, Délici-œuf, Greenspot is showcasing The Deluxe Plate. For $12.45 you get two eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, crepes, pork ‘n’ beans, toast, sweet potatoes, fruits and tea or coffee. Let me say, for one person it was impossible to even finish. Ready in minutes, it was absolutely delicious. Thanks to Zoe and her staff for being so welcoming.
So now I will go down the list and see which other egg-speriences I can dream up.
