Montreal Food Trudge, Part Two: Snowdon Deli, Brasserie T, Laloux, and Beyond

by

The “medium-fatty” smoked meat at Snowdon Deli is light years different from the smoked meat at Schwartz’s.

I traipsed through the snow in Montreal a couple of weeks ago to bring you yesterday’s food trudge, which included Au Pied de Cochon, La Binerie Mont Royal, and two competing bagel shops, St.-Viateur and Fairmount. Today we pursue more of the city’s iconic eats, illustrating the piece on the Montreal-New York connection that appeared in this week’s print edition of the Voice.
