“Here are my favourite bistros near my home. After a hard day’s work, there’s nothing better than stopping by one of them to pick up some delicious food cooked with love. A guaranteed family hit!”

Le Petit Alep

Le Petit Alep serves delicious and comforting cuisine that makes you travel; which does a lot of good—especially these days!

My favourite dishes:

⁃ The mezzes (muhammara, moussaka, hummus)

I love this Vietnamese bistro. It’s warm and welcoming, and the food is always delicious!

My favourite dishes:

⁃ Pork and vegetable fried rolls

⁃ Pho (classic beef)

⁃ Papaya salad (I would eat this every day, it’s so good!)

My favourite dishes:

⁃ Bibimbap

Isle de Garde

A true institution in La Petite-Patrie, Isle de Garde serves rich and delicious beers in a cozy atmosphere. Lately, our family treat has been to make a nice meal, then go for fries and beers at Isle de Garde. With their side of truffle oil mayonnaise, these are the best fries around. Decadence guaranteed!

My go-tos:

⁃ French fries with truffle oil mayonnaise

⁃ Grisette beer

That’s it for our mayor’s take-out suggestions! Thank you, Valérie!
