Montreal’s dynamism, creativity and colourfulness can be rivaled only by its Streetfood culture.
It is now common knowledge that Streetfood trucks resurfaced in the streets of Montreal after having been banned in 1947. Within a few months, the diversity of the trucks and their quality have reached unprecedented heights, as if they had been roving the streets for years.
Montreal has acquired its reputation as a gastronomic destination thanks to its lifestyle and a festive and friendly atmosphere, and the food trucks quickly become key ambassadors making this reputation even stronger.
From Dim Sum’s dumpling to Landry et Filles’ ployes, not to forget the Pied de Cochon’s foie gras poutine and Grumman’s tacos, there is something for everyone, of all colors and tastes.

Another less known aspect of Montreal’s Streetfood culture is the Counter. Much before the return of the food trucks, the Streetfood culture was alive and well in Montreal thanks to fix venues offering a rich and tasty range of meals which customers could easily consume in the street, while walking or sitting in a park.
These Counters, managed by skilled craftsmen, have been part of the city’s culinary identity for years and shape Montrealers’ daily lives. From coffees, croissants, poutines, sandwiches, smoked meat, pancakes, donuts or 24h bagels, they are just a must!
