A good meal on the go in Old Montreal

A good meal on the go in Old Montreal

Do you work in Old Montreal or are you just passing through and you are starving? Here is a list of addresses to eat on the go in the neighborhood. The good news is that most of these restaurants offer multiple options for less than 20 dollars!

Olive + Gourmando has long been a favorite of locals, tourists and celebrities alike. We go there for the glazed salmon and brown rice bowl or its vegan version. For those who like it spicy, we highly recommend the poached egg salad panini and the Cuban pork sandwich.

Want to fill up on vitamins? On the menu at Aloha Espresso Bar: fish, chicken, veggie or vegan versions of poke bowls, as well as colorful smoothies. And you can customize everything to your taste.

For a meal with character, go to the Indian brasserie Le 409, where we fall for the chickpea samosas or a decadent butter chicken poutine.

At Sésame, we succumb to a mini-poke with salmon, papaya salad or fried rice with vegetables.

For Italian paninis brimming with flavor, we'll go to Bello. You can accompany it with a rich coffee or a refreshing drink and that's it!

Pizza fans will want to stop by NO.900, perfect for a shared feast... but if you're eating it all alone, it will of course remain between us!

For an English meal, we head to Brit & Chips. We love the different flavors of breadcrumbs, the commitment of the owners to serve fish from sustainable fisheries and the plates lined with newspaper leaves, which transport us straight to the Old Continent.

At Tejano BBQ Burrito, we opt for burritos in sandwiches or bowls, in carnivorous, vegan or vegetarian versions. For a moment, you'll feel like you're in the hot Mexican sun... for much less than the cost of a plane ticket!

Eating on the go, the Slice + Soda chain has made it its specialty! Here, multiple choices of pizza slices and fruity sodas are on the menu. We want to try everything!

While you're waiting for your order at Franklin's Subs and Suds, why not play a little game of arcade? In this inviting retro decor, they serve subs and burgers, with vegan and vegetarian options.

As for Le Petit Sao, it has plenty to satisfy you, with its vast menu of imperial rolls, bowls and banh mi, a classic of Vietnamese street food.

Mandy's is one of the favorite restaurants of many Montrealers. These days, we go there to discover the new summer menu. The salads La Mez and its tofu shish taouk or La Sabrosa and its plantain chips are eye-catching!
