Hi there, just doing some research on vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants for an upcoming trip to Montreal and Quebec city; I'm finding lots of options for Montreal but few in Q.C. Can anyone give me a few of their favorites? I notice the French menu's are 99% non-animal-friendly...so much veal, lamb and foie gras!
There is - or was five years ago, when I visited - a chain of restaurants called 'Le Commensal' of which there are three in Montreal and one in Quebec City, just outside the old city walls. They are self-service and everything is labelled according to whether it is vegan, lacto or ovo. In all of these places you pay by WEIGHT, which seems unusual, but given that all prices dispayed in Canada EXCLUDE PST and GST, then unless your mental arithmetic is top notch, then you'll just have to bring in enough cash and guess. If you head out into the sticks, you'll even find a independent vegetarian restaurant in Magog (near Sherbrooke). Have a good trip!
