If your questions is where can I get a good blintz? Then start at Krazy Cmak on Somerled Avenue in Montreal. If you prefer Polish to Russian style of cooking, then perhaps Euro-Deli Batory on St. Viateur in the Mile End district will be more to your liking.
I have a better question though. Where can I get a good Portuguese dish, a great grilled piece of meat, tasty pasta, fresh fish from the catch of the day, with a pint of stout or ale? Well that would only be one place. La Cabane du Portugal on Saint Laurence Boulevard (The Main) in Montreal.
La Cabane, as it is commonly known, sits right across from its more famous neighbours Moishe's steakhouse and Schwartz's Deli. In good company but at more reasonable prices than Moishe's and a greater variety and classier seating than Schwartz's, La Cabane boasts a menu for anybody's liking.
La Cabane has been around since the early 1980s. While it is known for its excellent Portuguese cooking, it serves up a variety of great lunch, dinner and late night meals. The key, when you walk in is to check out the board of their eight daily specials which includes game meat, grills, steaks, fresh fish or salads. Or, if that doesn't grab you, their full menu will satisfy you. In addition to all those meat meals, vegetarian dishes are available too. Overall, nice sized portions and good prices.
I have been there for an afternoon beer on a hot summer day. A great lunch in the middle of winter. And I have enjoyed their supper time menus countless times.
