5 ADRESSES POUR SAVOURER LA CUISINE NORD-AFRICAINE ET MOYEN-ORIENTALE À MONTRÉAL

Montreal is full of restaurants and unique culinary concepts that allow us to discover different cultures through gastronomy. If you're like me and like to discover new cuisines, I present you top 5 addresses to discover North African and Middle Eastern cuisines. During this uncertain period, we invite you to support these local businesses and encourage them with their respective missions. Thus, I propose a gastronomic journey where your taste buds will be transported elsewhere, in a mix of colors and flavors. 

LES FILLES FATTOUSH

Les Filles Fattoush

We are happy to introduce you to their spices where you can already learn more about Middle Eastern cuisine. Les Filles Fattoush is above all a social enterprise offering a catering service. The company also offers a work opportunity for Syrian refugee women. Sharing and support are well established at Les Filles Fattoush which it shows in their kitchen and in their social involvement. Opt for their delicious fattoush salad, their mezzes that are to die for and their mujadarah, an ancestral dish from the Middle East made of burgol, lentils, and caramelized onions.

Maha, chef of La Caravane Gourmande, takes us with her on a journey full of flavors. Always on trying new ideas, she uses her creativity to propose a fusion cuisine, always with a Moroccan touch. She offers her catering service for all types of occasions, from themed brunches to buffet-style dinners. We had the opportunity to taste one of her recent creations; a rose and ras-el-hanout brownie. It was a great success at our Late Afternoon Tea. To our great pleasure, Maha shares her delicious recipes on her pages and invites you to try them.

DARNA


Darna's restaurant offers a comforting home-style cuisine that is rich in flavors. The word Darna means "our house" in Arabic. Thus, this sets the tone for the warm atmosphere of this lovely bistroquet. Combining French bistro cuisine with influences from Moroccan gastronomy, Darna presents decadent food, available on take-out. On the menu, which is often renewed, there is braised lamb shoulder couscous, roasted butternut squash steak, chicken tagine with saffron and vanilla mille-feuille with salted butterscotch. They also offer a brunch menu on the weekend!

LA ROSE DES SABLES

Restaurant La Rose des Sables

Vegetable couscous? Ojja with merguez? Chakchouka? The restaurant La Rose des Sables presents the diversity of Tunisian cuisine. One of the musts try is the brick, a typical Tunisian starter. Made of fine dough and stuffed with potatoes, parsley, onion, cheese, and tuna, the brick is a happy mixture of softness and crispness. The restaurant offers three options: the original brick, the shrimp brick, and the egg brick. Discover the menu of La Rose des Sables offering a variety of choices for your next dinners.

It is one of the most popular culinary institutions in Montreal. Damas restaurant offers refined Syrian cuisine that brings together rich and spicy flavors. Sadly, we can't settle into their beautiful decor but we are glad to be able to order and take the food home with us. Their elaborate menu makes us want to try everything! We still recommend that you try our favorite dishes: grilled halloumi, kibbeh, fattoush salad, shish taouk, and rack of lamb. Enjoy your meal!
