Where to eat in Montreal? We’ve got you covered. The city’s best food tour takes you to at least 5 of your local guide’s favourite eateries and watering holes. From artisanal charcuteries to thirst quenching craft beers, discover the surrounding areas of Jean-Talon, our largest food market on our walking tour!

Tour Description:

Over the years Montreal has held a reputation as a city that loves to eat, and eat well. A trip to the Jean-Talon Market helps the outsider grasp the fact that farm-to-table is nothing new in town. Together we will sample some tasty regional delicacies and meet the producers who take pride in the quality and distinction of their harvest.

Strolling through the adjacent areas you will gain a better understanding of why diversity is synonymous with Montreal. The Vietnamese neighbor the Italians and further east the Latinos share the streets with the Maghrebis. Sit down for a full-flavored tasting at the city’s favorite Salvadoran hole-in-the-wall.

We’ll be ending at our favourite microbrewery for some stellar craft beers and local cheeses where we will hand out a list of recommendations.

Our cheat sheet will tell you where to find the best poutine or which microbreweries we love, all of our musteat spots, ones we’ve frequented a bit too often.


Frequently Asked Questions

Should we eat beforehand? How much food are you serving up?

Yes, this isn’t a blood test. Eat breakfast, consider the start time of your tour. This route offers a bit less food than our summer version. Though the tastings vary in size the whole experience will be a lunch worth. If you can squeeze more in ask our guide or refer to the cheat sheet for nearby goodies.

Does this tour start and end at the same location?

We end about a 15 minute walk from our departure point. On our neighbourhood recommendation list there will be a map or just ask your guide for help to get where you need to be. You’ll receive starting directions when you book.

How should we dress?

To impress, obviously, but most importantly to stay warm. We have real winter here so dress like a Canadian would. Ears should be covered and good gloves too. We don’t take our long johns off between November to April and they change our lives! If you show up showing off your ankles at -20C we’re all going to laugh except you.

Should I leave my guide a tip?

Yes, if they did a good job it is customary to drown them in money.

Can we book a private tour?

Sure! This way.

What if I’m vegetarian, can’t eat dairy etc. Is this tour for me?

Do you still like food and seeing the neighbourhoods? Then yes. Let us know of all SERIOUS allergies/restrictions when booking and we’ll do our best to accommodate at each of our food/drink stops. If you simply don’t like something, that’s between you and the food group.
