There’s nothing like going for breakfast early in the morning with a friend to just catch up. Betty and I tried out The Montreal Deli and Greek Grill yesterday and it was a no frills deli and grill place.
I hadn’t heard much about this restaurant at all before and didn’t even know that it was located in the densely-restaurant-populated area of York Boulevard in Richmond Hill where you find restaurants like Destiny’s or Bulgogi Brothers. Apparently they serve award-winning smoked meat sandwiches too! (They should actually post these awards on their website so that people know exactly which ones they won.)
As such, I ordered a hefty portion of Montreal smoked meat sandwich and Betty chose one of the breakfast combos (SUCH a good deal by the way! She got more food than I did for almost half the price. That’s what you get when you are suckered into trying their smoked meat sandwiches though 😉 ).
In any case, I enjoyed the friendly service and the low-key style of the restaurant. I liked the quality of smoked meat that I had! It definitely was compulsory for me to compare this one with the actual ‘real deal’ Schwartz’s smoked meat sandwiches in Montreal, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the meat was smoked and how it tasted so soft and its smoked edges hinted of a little spice too. It was so yummy! I devoured the first half rather quickly since it was so good. I liked the really soft pickle that was on the side too. 🙂 One downside is that I felt that the bread used to hold the meat together could have been of a harder type. The heat from the meat made the bread a little soggy and didn’t go well together. Other than that, I would say this could be the next best thing to going to Schwartz’s in Montreal.
Betty seemed to enjoy her smoked meat breakfast plate too. (Look at all that food!) I tried one of the potatoes and it tasted a little dry to me. Nevertheless, Montreal Deli and Greek Grill is definitely a nice breakfast/lunch place to check out for a quick meal. 🙂
