Other than Montreal-style smoked meat, Montreal is also famous for its scrumptious bagels. Montreal-style bagel are different from the New York-style bagels based on its method of preparation. The dough for Montreal-style bagels is handmade, contains no salt, and is boiled in honey-sweetened water prior to being baked in a wood-fired oven.
The two most famous bagel shops in Montreal are St. Viateur and Fairmount Bagel. We visited St. Viateur’s flagship bakery on St-Viateur West first (263 Rue Saint Viateur Ouest, Montreal QC) and here is our Montreal restaurant review of the place.
