Syrian food, sashimi, and Korean fried chicken are among this week’s picks
Tired of cooking at home, or just looking for some variety? While many Montreal restaurants are closed indefinitely due to ongoing social distancing rules, some continue to offer take-out and delivery menus.
Here’s a hand-picked list of ideas for take-out and delivery across Montreal that we think are worth your time right now, with an eye to including a range of cuisines across a range of neighbourhoods.
If you’re planning to support these local establishments, we recommend phoning in orders directly and picking it up yourself — most restaurants’ delivery options are handled by platforms like Uber Eats and Foodora that take a sizable fee from every order placed, meaning that restaurants get a smaller cut of your money. Furthermore, consider whether you absolutely need delivery instead of pick-up — most local restaurants don’t employ their own delivery drivers or cyclists, and have to turn to companies like Uber Eats to operate delivery (although for larger orders, it can’t hurt to call in advance and ask if a restaurant can deliver without going through those platforms).
Of course, these are just a few suggestions for what to eat — each Friday, we’ll select a fresh set of restaurants for your consideration. For a more thorough selection of restaurants open during the coronavirus crisis, check our list over here.
