Lonely Planet review
The complex flavors of Syrian-Armenian cuisine draw diners from all over Montréal. A big menu includes hummus, salads and muhammara (spread made of walnuts, garlic, breadcrumbs, pomegranate syrup and cumin), plus beef kababs smothered in tahini, spices and nuts. Dine in the bright restaurant (the front wall opens up onto the street during nice weather) or, in the evening, the slightly swish dining room next door.
