The place to search out one of the best bar snacks in Montreal
With the best chefs in the city under one roof, and the non-stop nightlife (think: six bars serving wine, beer, sodas, cocktails—and mocktails—inspired by Montréal’s master mixologists), there are so many reasons to visit Time Out Market Montréal (signature Milk Bar milkshakes and cult coffee included).

What: Beef burger signed Toque!
Sink your teeth into a famous beef burger made by chef Normand Laprise—one of the most acclaimed and influential chefs in Quebec—topped with marinated onion, portobello mushroom and smothered with crémeux Boivin cheese. We like ours with fries and a side of jalapeno mayonnaise.

What: Chicken poutine
When the Ferreira family’s famous Portuguese chicken meets one of the most iconic dishes in the province, you’ve got a match made in food heaven. Think perfectly crisp fries topped with cheese curds, São Jorge cheese and grilled chicken, doused in savory house chicken gravy and topped with addictively crunchy chorizo chips.

What: Buttery whelks
Upgrade your snack game with briny, sweet sea snails bathed in butter, crostini, nori aioli and lime. Paired witn order of truffle fries, parmesan and homemade aioli, and you’ve hit the spot.

Three impossibly tender veal meatballs in a tangy tomato sauce are the name of the game here. Pro tip: Order two servings as they tend to disappear as quickly as they arrive.

What: Sakura flat
Can’t decide between the sakura-maki and hosomaki? Perfect. Let the chef do all the decision-making with the Sakura platter’s selection of 5 sakura-maki and 6 hosomaki.

What: Butter chicken
This classic butter chicken is unforgettable, but it’s also an excuse to order naan—the soft, pillowy, completely addictive flatbread we can’t ever seem to get enough of.

There’s nothing more satisfying than a piping hot bowl of traditional pho, especially when you opt for extra beef ribs and a spring roll on the side.

Mix and match your mezze with as many bright bowls bursting with fresh flavors as you want, like the muhammarra (red pepper puree of walnuts, pomegranate molasses, topped with radishes, lemon zest, chives and toasted walnuts) or lemon confit chicken (grilled chicken breast with green olives, lemon confit, Aleppo pepper and a lemon yoghurt dip).

What: Karaage with a twist
Crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside karaage (Japanese fried chicken) served atop a generous portion of curry is guaranteed to become a new Time Out Market Montreal go-to.

What: Accras and pikliz
You can’t go wrong with a jerk chicken sandwich (think: jerk mayo, mesclun, and plantain fries) with a side of cod and malanga accras and pikliz.
