    Hmmmm… okay, here are my faves:

    Beer – I dunno, I hate beer. But for drinks? Brutopia is very nice.

    Breakfast – B&M

    Burgers – my house (no one can match my awesome burger-making abilities!)

    Cafe – I have a bunch, but downtown I like Kafeïn

    Cajun/Creole – I’ve never tried Cajun/Creole food, unless you count the gumbo a friend made me in Baton Rouge….

    Caribbean – Again, I’m not familiar with any Caribbean place in MTL.

    Chinese – Wok Café

    Crepes – Hmm. I don’t think I’ve sampled any crepes in Montreal, oddly enough.

    Deli – No Montreal deli can compare to any deli in NYC. PERIOD.

    English/Irish – Gross. Who the eff actually likes/eats English or Irish food?

    Fondue – Again, this is a food that just isn’t done.

    French – No thank you.

    German/Austrian/Polish – I’ve only tried the Polish at Kalinka, and the service was terrible, so I can’t recommend it. Try the pierogies from Supermarché PA instead.

    Greek – Meh.

    Indian – DADs Bagels

    Italian – Please. I can make better Italian food in my kitchen than any Italian resto in this damn town.

    Japanese/Sushi – Aka Fuji

    Lebanese – Boustan

    Mexican/Tex-Mex – Mesa 14

    North African – ??

    Pastries – anyplace that makes chocolatines = good.

    Pizza – Fine Pointe

    Portugese – no idea

    Poutine – La Banquise

    Quebecois – As if! There are no "Quebecois" food items that are worth consuming.

    Ribs – Haven’t looked.

    Salads – No one in Montreal knows how to make a proper Caesar salad for under $10, because everyone here is out to rip you off.

    Sandwiches – So many to choose from, but I’ll say Santropol because theirs are quite original.

    Seafood – There is no decent seafood in Montreal. Fete de homard is a JOKE!

    Steak – Home-made.

    Thai – Bangkok

    Vietnamese – Pho Bac
