Ribs at Le Boucan

ROSEMONT — A few months later than planned, Griffintown barbecuers Le Boucan have spread their smokey wings all the way to Promenade Masson over in Rosemont. They’ll be dishing up ribs, pulled pork, guedilles, and the likes from the old M Sur Masson location. They’re using the same smoking process with a Quebecois touch as at their Notre-Dame location: that’s with maple and apple wood instead of more traditional options like hickory. The Masson location is open seven days from 11:30 a.m. weekdays and noon on weekends, to 10 p.m. (11 p.m. Thursday to Saturday). Check out their tile- and wood-laden interior below.

NDG — Monkland Village now has a cafe dedicated to Korean desserts. Dessert Cafe Momo is the name, and it’s open at 5525 Monkland from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday (8 a.m. weekends). Shaved ice dessert bingsu figures prominently — a rare commodity in Montreal — and the Oreo version of it (below) suggests they’re not afraid to experiment. They’re also doing a range of cakes and various other sweets in case icy dessert isn’t your thing in winter.

CITÉ-DU-MULTIMÉDIA — Vegetarian restaurant Lola Rosa is joining the club of venues trying their luck with the tourist crowds in Old Montreal and adjacent areas (see also: Tejano, Olimpico). The William Street location promised a year ago is now open, and while not wildly different to the existing Plateau locations, it leans a touch more vegan — check the menu below. They’re also doing delivery via Just Eat.

CHINATOWN — Noodle-puller Lan Zhou has re-opened after a fire in an abandoned building forced them closed (the same fire that claimed the scalp of Café Bonita). No big changes here, just the same classic beef broth with hand-made noodle at the same location, 1006 St-Laurent.

GRIFFINTOWN — Elevated comfort food spot Mauvais Garçons is now open on William Street in Griffintown. Eater has much of the insight on their plans for hearty eats from the lead up to their opening right here, and they’re open Tuesday to Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. (midnight on Friday and Saturday).
