Joe Beef

Joe Beef (2491 Rue Notre Dame Quest, Montreal)
One of Montreal's most celebrated restaurants, we had our last dinner in Montreal here after much debate (vs. Au Pied de Cochon). The restaurant has a daunting chalkboard menu written in French, with the daily menu and wine list. A very small, intimate restaurant with comfort food being their main focus. The portions are HUGE and you will without a doubt leave with a very sore (but happy) belly. Please note that it was extremely dark in here, so the photos are limited.

Cocktail of the Day
Bourbon + Cayenne + Citrus

Burrata Salad + Carrots/Veg
The burrata was creamy, silky and also the size of a baseball. The acidity and sweetness from the pickled vegetables balanced the dish nicely.

Foie Gras Double Down
Two 80g pieces of foie gras deep fried enveloping bacon, maple syrup smoked cheddar cheese, mayo and a brown sugared apple juice sauce. Wildly delicious, so good it scared me ha!

Lobster Spaghetti
Since my boyfriend is not a huge fan of lobster, this dish was all mine. Featuring 2 pounds of lobster and a plate of pasta that can easily feed 2-3, it was DELICIOUS. Perfectly juicy, succulent and sweet lobster with pasta dressed with a bacon, cream, lobster sauce. I would pay the hefty price tag of $49.00 again and again, loved it!

 Pork Sausage + Brussels + Mushrooms + White Gravy
The server explained that the pork was braised for many hours then repurposed into a sausage. Dressed in a white gravy with mushrooms and brussel sprouts, it was a very rich and hearty dish.. not for the faint of heart. I thought that the dish was a bit overseasoned.
I am a sucker for fries and Joe Beef's rendition was no exception. These were crispy, thin covered in herbs and parm. So incredible!
