swUrl is a frozen yogurt shop with a lot of character located at 1464 Crescent street. We were invited to attend a tasting of their Bacon flavored frozen yogurt and we couldn’t pass it up. Before getting in we were greeted by two brand ambassadors decked out in bacon themed attire and we were handed a pass to unlimited frozen yogurt.
Our visit was to the downtown location on Bishop street just south of Maisonneuve – dangerously close to Concordia’s downtown campus.
Fast, tasty and cheap, Arouch is an Armenian pizzeria located inside Concordia University’s John Molson building. Offering an impossibly good deal – six pizzas for $6 – it is doubtless as to why Arouch is so popular amongst lovers of inexpensive meals (Nilufar on St. Catherine is a close second). Three pizzas are usually enough to fill an empty stomach, so you’re basically getting two meals for a handful of change. The lahmajoun is the original version of the Armenian pizza – drizzle some lemon juice on top and you’re good to go!
Close to Concordia University, La Panthère Verte offers fresh and organic food, a healthy alternative to the multitude of fast food restaurants close by. Firmly entrenched in promoting a green lifestyle, the Panthère not only supports locally grown produce but also offers the city’s first ever organic meals-on-(bike)wheels service.
Dominion Square Tavern is a popular meeting place young professionals, older professionals, university students and those who work in the downtown area. Getting a table during the week during 5 a 7 is nearly impossible – reservations are highly recommended, especially for larger parties.
Conveniently located in the Montreal core, Kazu montreal is a small Japanese eatery with a flair for the authentic. Wait lines are not uncommon – eager foodies show up a half an hour early to secure a spot. After reading so many good reviews about the place, I decided to check it out last week for the first time with a friend. We arrived at 5:15 and managed to get in on the first seating, but just barely. I would suggest lining up between 5:00 – 5:10 if you want to get in for the early dinner set. After the first seating, you can expect to wait around 45 minutes to get in. Also, the prices are very reasonable – the most expensive item on the menu is $15!
