Binerie Mont-Royal Review

That rarest of the city's culinary finds—authentic Quebecois food—is the specialty at this tiny diner that's been in business since 1938. Sit at the long counter and make your way through a filling breakfast of eggs, ham, toast, and, as the restaurant's name suggests—beans. These Québec-style signature beans are still made the old-fashioned way and the owner is more than happy to explain the steps if you ask. At lunch, there are bowls of stew made with meatballs and pigs' feet, tourtière (meat pie), and pork and beans. Or opt for the "Assiette Quebecois" and get a taste of everything. It's cheap and filling, and the staff is charming, though it could use a renovation.

    Binerie Mont-Royal Review

    The feves au lard here are uniquely great. I have never found anything close. I have eaten in many good restaurants and have had great food that was often equalled or approached elsewhere. I have never found anything close to these. The beans here don't have anything sweet added. They are definitely a cardiologists worst nightmare.
    I have treated myself to this treat about once or twice a year, not more,for around thirty years, for I'm sure it spikes the cholesterol level for at least a month.
