The smoked meat


The most popular place for eating the smoked meat
The famous food of Montreal: the poutine, the bagels and... the smoked meat. If you came to Montreal but you have never tasted one of these, then don't even say you have been here. This might sound a bit extreme. For some people, food is just a food, they don't know what the difference is, and some even skip a meal or two in a day. For Taiwanese, food is extremely important. If you have Taiwanese guests, you could have them live in bad conditions or take them to boring places but if you starved them, it would be unacceptable. Since we were kids, we've been taught that "nothing is more important than meals for human." and that the sequence of human's essential  needs is: food, clothing, housing, transportation, education, entertainment. (except for Japanese, for whom it's clothing, food, housing, transportation, education, entertainment.)


Schwartz's is always packed

It was huge, though I ordered only half.
The smoked meat is one of the famous edible in Montreal. You could find it in many restaurants. Even though I'm not a professional gourmet, when I want to eat, I could find a really good place where to get delicious food, and if there was a line up, I would be willing to wait. Schwartz's is legend in Montreal. You can not only find it on your guide book, but also you can hear about it from every Montrealer. The restaurant gives you so much meat it seems like it doesn't have to pay for it. And the waiters are very friendly, lively and humorous.


I'd like to say thank you to an enthusiastic stranger who told me where the restaurant was when I nearly got lost. He was really nice. While he knew I was going to Schwartz's, he gave me a suggestion: "if you don't like fat, order medium fat. Otherwise, you won't get to finish it"
The cola tastes carbon dioxide more than it in Taiwan.

Overall experience rating: 5.5/5
