If you stop by Montreal, you gotta check what is all the fuzz about this Hebrew joint on St Laurent. The first time I went there, I ordered 3 smoked meat sandwichs and was debating if I should bring one home. It was simple and tasty.
Schwartz’s, serves the best smoked meat from the original recipe of spices since 1928. Imagine walking through the door and taking a step back 80 years into “Main Street” history in Montreal. A “true” Montreal landmark that has welcomed celebrities and visitors from all over the world.
Pop’s Pastrami Sandwich at Harry & Ida’s is definitely one of the best in New York City! Served on a toasted bun with cucumber salad, dill and anchovy-infused mustard, it’s a real step-up from other delis. Their juicy, smoky pastrami is the star of the show here, of course, and it puts most other smoked meats in the city to shame. A real winner!!
Dinner, 24 March 2015. We arrive exhausted from our travels (since Sunday afternoon when we left Eugene for Portland). The Queen Elizabeth hotel is big and nice. We have a quiet dinner in their main restaurant. I get a salad and Montreal smoked meet sandwich with fries. Julia got a similar sandwich but skipped the fries for a salad and ate some of my fries. It’s good to be someplace solid after 50+ hours in transit.
There’s a place called Schwartz that sells AMAZING smoked meat sandwiches (pastrami for us american folk) and I just got some and oh boy was it worth it. It is some of the best smoked meat in Montreal after all.
