4 New Foodie Hot Spots You Have to Try This Summer in Montreal

With 29 days left before the end of summer, you’ll need to make the most of these sunny days, wonderful terraces, new foodie hot spots to discover in the city.

This no-fail list of newcomers to town cover various cuisines, neighbourhoods, scents and flavours, and you certainly won’t regret visiting them more than once…

This reimagined Torteria is a unique Mexican experience, setting itself apart from the vast options of tacos and burritos in St-Henri. Lupita recently opened with a master chef behind the scenes, Sandra Soto, ex-Olive & Gourmando and sister of Victor from Tacos Victor. You’ll fall in love with their affordable options of tortas, deep-fried flautas, salads, and an authentic Mexican corn on the cob. We loved the colourful decor and casual ambiance along with their lovely cooks and servers.


La Habanera
This vibrant Cuban spot in the middle of the city will transport you to the Caribbean as soon as you step inside.


La Habanera brings a great tropical concept to downtown Montreal with a menu packed full of exceptional flavours, including classics like Bao Cubano, piña´ribs, moros, mouth-watering ceviches, and plenty of plantains and avocados. Can we ask for more? Yes, mojitos! La Habaneras’ cocktail list is simply to die for.


What happens when a perfect steamed pork bun meets an impeccable minimalist spot? Hao comes to life. This stunning counter-style restaurant located in the heart of Plateau-Mont Royal is serving a simple but on-point menu of steamed buns à la Momofuku style.


With three delicate  lunch items, Hao serves perfect pork and veggie buns and a fresh, super-savoury cucumber salad. Looking for spring rolls and some noodles instead? Just hit their special after-hours menu on Wednesdays after 6pm.


With a charming decor inspired by Russ & Daughters, Arthurs brings a Canadian-Jewish menu to Montreal. You can share these small plates and enjoy classics like Matzah soup, potato latkes, perogies and lots of smoked fish.


Planning a weekend brunch? Arthurs’ brunch menu will impress you as well. Hurry up and don’t wait to have some fresh Challah and, please, never forget to always finish up with a sweet Babka, the best in town. Want to read a full Arthurs experience? Find more here.
