Merguez Sandwiches at the Jean-Talon Market in Montreal: Boucherie An-Nasr

I was introduced to the merguez sausages years ago in Marrakech. Merguez is a sausage made from a combination of lamb and beef, originated from North Africa and has since became very popular in France. The type that I really love is the Algerian merguez which is spicy and gives out a smoky mutton flavor. I have now put merguez on my last meal list.

Because Montreal is highly French, this is where I get my merguez fill. I found this sandwich place at the Jean-Talon Market place. Although it is called Boucherie An-Nasr, it is only a sandwich place as far as I can tell. I also figured out where they get their merguez links – that butcher shop will be featured in an upcoming post.

A good look at the sandwich: two links of merguez, tomatoes, lettuce, olives, onions and some of their special sauce in a baguette, panini style.  The whole ensemble sings!

Here is another look at the sandwich plus the fries. The fries are nothing special but the merguez is truly the hero and worthy of a 6-hour-drive from NY to Montreal.

Here are the beautiful additions to the sandwich.

This sandwich shop also carries a variety of spices, jams, and tea with Arabic writing. I would very much like to try them all slowly, one by one.

I cannot stress how much love I have for this sausage. It is just me. 🙂 Please check out this little shop if you are ever in the area. The owners are rather nice – the last time I was there, I had a pleasant conversation/debate on whether Montreal is truly a bilingual city. The company is as good as their merguez sausage.

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada – It’s All in the Batter; La Crêpe 2Go à Monréal, au Canada- Tout est dans la pâte

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada, hands down, is the best crepe place in North America for me. When I think of Montreal, I think of the crepes in La Crêpe 2Go. Why is it good? It is about the batter. It is the freshness and thinness that are found in an authentic crepe. #crêpes

La Crêpe 2Go à Montréal, au Canada, pas de questions, c’est le meilleur restaurant à crêpes dans l’Amerique du Nord pour moi. Lorsque je pense à Montréal, je pense à La Crêpe 2Go. Pourquoi est- t- il si bon? C’est la pâte. C’est la fraîcheur et la finesse qui se trouvent dans les vrai crêpes. #crêpes

As support to my claim, I drive six hours from NY to Montreal for a breakfast at La Crepe 2Go twice a year, April and October. This is my devotion to the crepes here. Well, short of going to France for crepes.

La preuve, je conduit six heures de New York à Montréal pour un petit déjeuner à la Crêpe 2Go deux fois par ans, en Avril et en Octobre. Voilà ma dévotion aux crêpes ici. Bon, à part d’aller jusque’ en France pour les crêpes.

This is the crêpe master, Vartan, with his helper. He is the proud owner of the store, prepares the batter by hand every morning and makes all the crêpes.

Voici le grand maître des crêpes, Vartan, avec son assistant. Il est le fiere propriétaire du restaurant. Chaque matin, il prépare la pâte et fait tout les crêpes.

Crêpe with spinach, egg and cheese. Nothing fancy but extremely delicious and satisfying.

Crêpe avec œufs, épinards, et fromage. Rien de extraordinaire, mais extrêmement délicieux et satisfaisant.

This is the starter: egg, ham and cheese. You can see the thin ham through the crepe. The eggs were beaten, fluffed, and somehow thinned out. This is such a contrast to the breakfast crepe I had a couple weekends ago in Mt. Kisco, NY. That crepe was fat and looked like a burrito.

Cela est la ” starter” : œufs, jambon, et fromage. Vous pouvez voir le jambon dans la crêpe. Les œufs étaient battus, bouffés, et en quelque sorte, faite plus plat. C’est une grande différence à la crêpe que j’ai mangé il y a quelque semaines à Mt. Kisco, NY. La crêpe ressemblait à un burrito.

I just love this place. Highly highly recommended it. Two thumbs up!! If you are ever in Montreal, please visit Vartan’s creperie. You will not disappointed.

J’adore ce restaurant. Je le recommend en priorité à ceux qui peuvent y aller. Si vous êtes jamais en Montréal, allez visitez la crêperie à Vartan. Vous ne le regretterez pas!
