Smoked meat @ Montreal Schwartz

If you find yourself in downtown Montreal, passing through St. Laurent in Plateau area, make sure you’re hungry. Because right there is located Canada’s oldest Deli, the world famous Schwartz’s, offering the classic, Hebrew tradition smoked meat. And it is offering plenty of it in one single sandwich! You simply cannot miss the deli, as no what matter what time of the year, there is always a lineup in front of it. If you are willing to settle for a take out, you would be waiting less, but having the meal inside the tiny, crowded space is a part of the tradition if you ask me. Also my advise: Go for full or medium-fat smoked meat, the light one just doesn’t taste as rich; you’re not going to have it every single day of the week, so it couldn’t hurt that much!  The fries aren’t great, but don’t miss its pickles. They are huge, but heavenly.  The pictures below, say “some” of it all!
