Taste the world!
Like any self-respecting traveller, you always return from your trip with photos and a few keepsakes—clothing, artworks, jewellery, trinkets or other mementos—tucked into your luggage. But some of the souvenirs you bring back are neither tangible nor visible.
These exist as memories of amazing experiences. The sights, sounds and smells you experienced; that incredible meal you ate, the one you declared was absolutely the best you’ve ever eaten in your whole life.
You brought this unique flavour back in your mind. And, just like your cherished photos, knickknacks other vacation souvenirs, you want to share it with friends, you want to recreate this delectable food experience yourself.
But you need real-deal ingredients, and Asia’s just a little too far to go shopping for supper!
No worries! Montreal is the supermarket of nations. Whatever the continent or country that left its culinary mark on you, you’ll find everything you need (or almost) in a grocery store right here in Montreal. If you’re looking for a particular spice, dough, sauce, vegetable, meat or other magical ingredient to give your dish an authenticflavour, the island of Montreal is teeming with ethnic grocery stores where you can hunt down all the supplies you need.
It would be an impossible task to list all the city’s ethnic grocery stores, as every cultural community on the island—more than 120—boasts its own ethnic food stores that cater to its specific culture.
