From our first taste of the Ferreira family’s Portuguese chicken coming hot off its smoking grills when it opened in 2016 to every delicious bite today, this fine-tuned churrascaria has consistently delivered quality time and again. If you're at the Market to grab some of their chicken, however, you can't go wrong by grabbing boxes of their Portuguese natas: Crispy and soft crusts that are filled with delectably smooth custard, lightly bruléed on top. Heck, get a box of six!
With stellar restaurants sporting skilled pastry chefs, the old-school bakeries serving up the same beloved goodies for the past 50 years, and all homegrown talents in between? It’s clear: Montreal loves its sweets as much as it loves its poutine. From sugary menus of romantic restaurants to guilty personal pleasures to the best donuts, these are the places you need to go if you want a luxuriant sugar rush.
