GUYS!!! THE SEARCH IS OVER!!!
ok so, for the record, i did not try the chinese food but instead had the smoked meat sandwich, which was made out of some far-too-thinly-sliced ham-tasting gross pink meat, which i suspect was prepared by gentiles.
Keung Kee attempting to cash in on the PSY phenomenon? …or just a Korean seafood hotpot?
It appears that a new Qing Hua will be opening up on Ste Catherine between St Marc and Towers where the old Croussanterie used to be. I had some difficulty communicating with the lady sweeping up the stoop but from what I understand it should be opening as early as next week. No word on whether the location on Lincoln will remain open or not.
This is definitely their best location in terms of street traffic etc but I worry that prices might go up as a result of the undoubtedly higher rent. Still unfortunately one of the only locations in Montreal to find soup dumplings and unfortunately although “good”, not “amazing”. Falls somewhere in the enh+ and “definitely doing again” spectrum.
for some reason, there was a woman at dimsum in a full banana suit. unfortunately we didn’t get any action shots of her eating. these shots were taken after they finished their meal and she was on the pay phone, presumably calling her other fruit-attired friends.
further evidence that my neighbourhood has justifiably earned its nickname of “chinatown west”. pictures taken at the provigo at the corner of fort & ste-catherine.
