Located in the Village (1259 Rue Sainte-Catherine Est, Montréal, Qc. Canada), this new vegan spot is open 7 days a week (from 10 am to 10 pm) serving brunch, lunch and dinner. I went there for dinner a couple of weeks ago and had to share my experience! Honestly, the best vegan restaurant I have tried so far in Montreal!
The interior is perfect for Instagram! Colorful, full of light and beautiful, minimalist design! For anyone who lives in Montreal, the Village might not be the first option when you think of a fine dinning experience, but this one is worth the stop!
Let's start of with drinks. All the wines that are served at Bistro Tendresse are actually privately imported! The list inspires curiosity and discovery while respecting their vegan and biologic image!
And now for the food!!
We started off with 3 different appetizers from the menu:
If I had to choose only one, without a doubt the Broccoli Bang-Bang! Honestly, I've hated broccoli since I can remember, yet I could eat these everyday! THE SAUCE is insane, we had to order more on the side! A must when trying out this restaurant!
As for main dishes we shared:
These are pretty generous portions in my opinion and I would recommend using the sharing method more then taking only one dish, that way you can taste different flavours/dishes from the menu!
Finally, DESSERT! We shared the dates & puffed rice homemade Snickers bar which is also gluten free (8$) but we decided to try out the Mushup coffee, which is a vegan coffee made with medicinal mushrooms (@mushup_coffee on instagram). So original!! Let me know if you guys like it!
Overall such an amazing experience! This has really changed my opinion on vegan restaurants! I was very impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the yumminess of the food!
