Avesta MontrealPosted By Jennifer Ho Aug 26 2011 · 1 comment · Downtown, Snacks & Street Food
Located directly across from Lasalle College, Avesta may be easy to miss amongst many ethnic eateries on St Catherine West. Once we saw the lady in the front window happily stretching fresh dough to make delicious flat bread, we committed to giving it a try. The service was somewhat slow during the lunch hour as we picked up sandwiches (that were really wraps) to go. Word on the street is that Avesta’s specialty is Manti which is fresh dough with spiced beef covered in yogurt, butter and spices.
We ordered the Spicy Chicken and Beef sandwich accompanied with a salad as we were in a hurry for lunch. At 5$ the sandwich and salad is a great quick and inexpensive choice. Overall the sandwiches were tasty but not memorable and beware, the drinks and desserts are quite expensive – 4.25$ for a piece of baklava.
