Expanded best bar snacks menu at Time Out Market Montréal

The essential list of what to eat while you drink at the Market in downtown Montreal just got longer.

Looking for the best grilled cheese in town, or a mind-blowing poutine? You've come to the right place.

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: Smoked brisket grilled cheese with cheddar and barbecue sauce.

Introducing the grilled cheese of your dreams. Fire-grilled brisket smothered in cheddar cheese and tangy barbecue sauce between two perfect slices of bread doesn't get better than this.

What: Beef burger signé Toqué!

Sink your teeth into a famous beef burger made by chef Normand Laprise—one of the most acclaimed and influential chefs in Québec—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 savoury 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.

What: Meatballs

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 platter

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.

What: Pho

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.

What: Mezze

Mix and match your mezze with as many bright bowls bursting with fresh flavours 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, lemons 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 Montréal 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.
