Smoke Meat Sandwich – A Canadian Special

I lost count of how many times (hm, 10 times?) I had visited this definitely-most-delicious-landmark in Montreal: Schwartz’s, which serves its most signature meal: the Montreal-style smoke meat sandwich.

A quick introduction by Wikipedia:

Schwartz’s, also known as the Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen is a delicatessen established in 1928 by Reuben Schwartz, a Jewishimmigrant from Romania.[1] It is a landmark, currently at 3895 Saint-Laurent Boulevard and the most famous remaining Montreal-style smoked meat restaurant.[2] The restaurant also sells smoked meat by mail order. It is kosher style rather than kosher.[3]

On a weekend afternoon, the line in front of this smaller dinner could easily go as long as 15 meters. We queued up for more than 20 minutes in order to try this Montreal special.

My personal favorite: median-fat smoke meat sandwich with Cherry Coke. Definitely month-watering.
