rvijay17 This is rvijay. Unable to log into my old account, so I post with this new account/nick now. I am hardly on forums these days. Just saying hi to all those who knew me here before.

I went to Aux Vivres last time I was in Montreal. I was so excited, the waiter thought I was weird. It was my first vegan restaurant experience, I couldn't contain myself. The tofu burger was so-so, but apparently I ordered the most boring item I could. I had a piece of carrot cake and all my omni friends decided it was the best carrot cake in the history of carrot cake!

I'll be back in May and would love some recommendations!

KrisMTL Brought some friends to Aux Vivres, was good times all 'round.

Also, Crudessence. Managed to break some omni myths like, "I thought if I ate a vegan meal my poop would be see-through". -_-

I'm glad to say my omni friends liked all the vegan nom noms, and would gladly go again, with me or without me. As someone very wise said to me, "planting seeds".

If anyone in the Montreal area, or visiting soon, wants to eat at a vegan eatery, let me know. Vegan noms and good conversation are always a good time.

KrisMTL Any vegan Montrealers want to hang out soon-ish?

Sweet Vegan Oh! Aux Vivres has the best Thai bowls and an AMAZING BLT made with smoked coconut, on a fresh chapati. So so so good. La Faim du Monde on Saint-Denis always has tasty specials at a very affordable price and Chu Chai is a decadently delicious vegan Thai restaurant also on Saint-Denis. It's more expensive but so worth it.

The best Vegan place I've been in Montreal is "Aux Vivres" on St. Laurent. http://www.auxvivres.com/ The choice is not huge but their food is amazing. I also liked Bonys a lot. http://www.bonnys.ca/home.htm Their meals are quite original and healthy, though they are vegetarian and not vegan, and they are also pricier.

I agree, Fraisie and I went to Aux Vivres, it was amazing!

Try grocery stores for bread, warm and eat soups, also the frozen section etc., If I know of any families there I will let you know. Chances are low though. Where in India are you from ?

Begonia Greetings, rvijay and thanks for link to recipes.



Another link in French: www.veganquebec.net



Here in Quebec City there are other health food stores besides the one at Place Laurier. Quite a good one is: La Carotte Joyeuse, 690 St-Jean, within easy walking distance of Old Quebec. http://www.happycow.net/north_americ...quebec/quebec/

rvijay French Vegan Cooking Link. Lots of great recipes:

http://www.cuisinez-vegetalien.net/

Seems popular locally in Quebec also.

Oooh, I love Quebec City! My husband is from there, so we drive there 3-4 times a year.



There's a health food store in Place Laurier mall in Quebec City (technically Ste. Foy, but practically part of Quebec City), and I know they carry Green Beaver products (or, they did last time I checked). I'm not sure if your husband will have time to get all the way over there if he's downtown, but I thought I'd let you know, because it's the only health food store I know of in the city. It's also a huge mall, so if he's planning on getting any other things while he's in Quebec, that's the mall to go to!

They really are good! In my office, we have a canteen (a bunch of boxes of snacks from Costco and sold for nearly cost), and my evil colleague added a huge box of 70% Kit Kats and 70% Aeros to the canteen about a month ago, so I have to walk past them every day! I'm pretty good, I manage to have only 1 every two weeks. But it's not easy!

President's Choice is a ubiquitous food company in Canada, and surprisingly, lots of their food is accidentally vegan. I absolutely ADORE their triple chocolate sandwich cookies. I tried to find a link to it, but the website says that the cookies page will open tomorrow! I'll link to the page tomorrow so you can see the cookies I mean. They really are GOOD.



I don't think the new vegan 70% cocoa Kit Kat and Aero bars are available outside of Canada. I usually avoid Nestle products, but I don't mind indulging occasionally in these vegan Kit Kats and Aero bars. They're just like the usual bars, only made with 70% cocoa chocolate! (There is also a 70% cocoa Coffee Crisp, but it's not vegan). So if you can't get them in the States, I definitely recommend your husband to pick you up a few! You can get them in most Loblaw's or Provigo supermarkets in Quebec.

Begonia Hi everybody, I'm in Quebec City.



A lot of vegan friendly places in Montreal. See: www.happycow.com

Abbey I just ate lunch at St. Hubert restaurant today (not my choice), and they now have a vegan apple crumble dessert! It's egg-, dairy-, nut- and peanut-free! It seems to be wheat-free as well (the ingredients are listed on the menu), but it doesn't explicitly say that.



So for any of you Quebecers who get dragged to St. Hubert by friends and family, and think you'll only be able to eat salad, there's now another option!

If you are a Veggie/Vegan Chef, speak to folks at Aux Vivres, Yuan, Crudessance etc., they might have some suggestions for you. Plateau area is very veggie friendly.

Abbey I think the average emergency room wait time in Quebec is like 14-15 hours. That's definitely higher than the national average. People in Gatineau often come across to Ottawa when they need to go to the ER!

I couldn't believe that either, but still grateful for Canada's health care. I waited in emergency at McGill for about 10 hours, and finally saw the doctor at 4am..

Sure has been hot here the last few days! I'm currently apartment hunting if anyone knows of a veg-friendly neighborhood or apartment.
