Where are the best “moules frites” in Montreal?
Where can you find the best mussels & fries in Montreal?
Moules frites are something we particularly like at Tastet! For those of us who have had the pleasure of devouring bowls of these in Europe, our memories are often associated with a restaurant on the Grande Place in Brussels or in a seaside café, watching the fishing boats bobbing in the water. Referred to as the national dish of Belgium, mussels are normally served in portions of 1.5k per person, and the two most traditional cooking methods are moules marinières (steamed with white wine, shallots, parsley, butter), and moules natures (steamed with celery, leeks and butter). At their best, they are plump and juicy, eaten with a plate of fries that have been double-fried, resulting in crispy outsides and soft in the middle. Drinking a good beer or glass of white wine with your mussels & fries is the best way to enjoy the whole experience. Here is our list of favourite places to savour the best moules-frites in Montreal. Bon appétit!
