Restaurants

Montreal is not short on restaurants, but if you arrive here with special dietary needs and an unstocked fridge, these may come in handy.

Aux Vivre: Vegetarien & health food.
http://www.auxvivres.com/en

Crudessence: Raw Live food.
http://www.crudessence.com/en/ (Raw food experience)

Taqueria Mex: Authentic Mexican for all diets. Fresh simple food, cooked as you order behind the counter, with a salsa bar, so you decide if it’s spicy or not. Liquor licence. More than you can eat for about $10. a plate. Great for the family when you haven’t stocked the fridge yet and you’re tired and hungry.

Wine & Liquor

In Quebec you can buy wine and beer in the local corner grocery store until 11:pm (except Sunday), however for superior wines, beers, and liquors we have government run stores called the SAQ. Check their hours on-line as they close earlier than grocery stores.
