Between a large immigrant population and a recent influx of creative chefs and venues, the culinary options in Brossard have recently been on the up. Between the various great Vietnamese and Chinese spots, the decidedly divey sports bars and Montreal-proper transplants like Le Golden Dragon and Brasserie T!, here are the best places to eat or drink at the other end of the Champlain Bridge.Read More
Where to Eat in Brossard (Including at Dix30)
Pho, dim sum, tacos, and more
1. Hoai Huong
This cozy bring your own wine spot specializes in traditional Vietnamese soup. Beyond great pho, you’ll also find bun bo hue and hu tieu my tho. The menu also lends itself to other hard-to-find Vietnamese favorites like bo luc lac (sauteed beef on a bed of greens) and banh dap (crushed rice crackers with anchovy sauce).
2. Dirty D
QC J4Y 0B3, Canada
This contemporary Mexican bar is a lesser-known project from the team behind cocktail spot Mile Public House, and an undeniable oasis hidden in plain sight in Dix30. Serving al pastor tacos and dobladas as well as creative cocktails and beers, Dirty D comes alive in the summertime but is just as tasty year round.
3. Estiatoria Skara
This stylish Mediterranean spot in Dix30 offers a great escape from the bustling shoppers below. Skara prides itself on fresh seafood, traditional Greek dishes and a second-storey, open air terrasse complete with Grecian-inspired decor.
Known for Lebanese delicacies served in a trendy, ornate venue, Zyara offers a contemporary twist on traditional Lebanese fare. Opt for the vegetarian mezzes — which comes with six tasting options, usually a combination of falafel, beet salad, haloumi, and more.
5. Brasserie T
QC J4Y 0E3, Canada
The cool, casual little sibling to Montreal’s famed Toqué, Brasserie T’s second location is tucked into the new Alt+ Hotel in the Dix30 shopping district. Catering to hotel guests and locals unwilling to brave the bridge alike, the bright and airy bistro serves everything from early morning breakfast to dinner (with weekend brunch, too). The wine list, plenty with natural options, is also worth your time.
6. Pho MC Brossard
QC J4X 2S6, Canada
Worth the drive to Brossard alone, this casual Vietnamese eatery is a heavy hitter. Whether you’re in the mood for a lazy bowl of pho or a quick banh mi and bubble tea to go, Pho MC Brossard covers a lot of ground. It’s also of the few places in Greater Montreal to get banh xeo (a crispy, rice flour-based crepe stuffed with bean sprouts and shrimp or tofu).
In search of ornate sushi boats on the South Shore? Mitsuki inside Dix30 does them right. The fusion restaurant also offers fried gyoza, calamari and more izakaya-style fare. There’s also a terrasse in the summer that’s great for enjoying sushi in the sun.
8. Le Golden Dragon
The latest from the team behind Le Blossom and Laval big-shot Miss Wong, this Chinese-style brasserie is tucked into an unassuming strip mall just off Taschereau. A welcome change from the chain eateries surrounding it, Le Golden Dragon offers a fun, kitschy atmosphere with cocktails, beer and playful Chinese-American bites — think General Tao frog legs and spicy cucumber salad.
9. La Maison Kam Fung
This busy, family friendly venue comes alive on the weekend when dim sum is king. Its specialities include crispy fried squid, steamed dumplings and congee, which are chosen by way of passing trolleys that circulate among the tables.
10. Windsor Hyper Bar & Grill
Cheap beer, comfy booths and countless TVs — Windsor Hype Bar & Grill is a no-frills pub with all the requirements for a laid back night. The menu consists of classic comfort food and pub fare — think burgers and fries or mac and cheese with tomato — and there’s usually some sort of a drink special available.
