What You Can Expect

Jewish Neighborhood Food Tour

Plateau

Bring your walking shoes and a healthy appetite on this culinary tour of Montreal’s Jewish neighborhood. Make your way to the area in the late morning to meet your local foodie guide, and set off by foot through the charming historic streets. Your first stop is a deli specializing in smoked meats in the district of Outremont, home to a large Hasidic Jewish community. Enjoy a taste of three dishes used in traditional Jewish cooking while your guide gives an overview of Montreal’s culinary makeup.

Continue on to a local kosher bakery to sample sumptuous Jewish desserts, which may include chocolate babka, triangular stuffed hamentashen, nutty rugelach and poppy seed cake. No Jewish food tour would be complete without a visit to a bagel joint, so taste for yourself what some claim to be Montreal’s best bagel at the next stop. 

In between tasting stops, admire the neighbor’s diverse architecture and listen to your guide share tales of famous former residents, such as writer Mordecai Richler.  To get a true feel the neighborhood’s dining scene, pop in to a local restaurant that’s been dishing up authentic Jewish dishes for more than 80 years. 

By the end of the 3.5-hour tour, expect to eat five to seven different samples that make up a satisfying meal.

This is a terrific tour! Mélissa was a great guide and she knows her stuff. While the food we sampled ...and sampled ...and sampled was fantastic, the tour also included MUCH more with explorations and discussion of Montreal history, architecture, and demographics. We also had periodic poetry readings and topped it all off with a wonderful tour through historic synagogue! WELL DONE!!!!

Excellent tour. Daren our tour guide was great. He is very knowledgeable and informative. He made sure the people on our tour with food allergies still got to participate and he found something they could eat. Prepare to learn a lot of information as well as eat a lot of food. You will eat what amounts to two meals and get a delicious desert. You will go to 3 places that have smoke meats. They are all awesome. You will also get one of the best bagels you will ever have.

It was a very cold June day, but the tour was still worth it. We had an amazing guide and the owner made sure things were running smoothly in the background. I'd definitely do another tour.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2015

Arrived at 10:50am for an 11:00am tour. Stayed until 11:20am. At the correct meeting point. Tour guide was a no show, so no tour.

Also, had wifi trouble when I paid, and was charged twice. I would think the local company would notice two payments for the exact tour under the same name. No contact about it at all.
