11 Superb Picks for Takeout in Parc-Ex

Featuring a plethora of Indian and Greek

View as Map

In a city as rapidly gentrifying as Montreal, natural wine bars cranking out small and seasonal sharing plates and third-wave coffee shops pouring nut milk lattes at the ready abound. But in the predominantly immigrant, working-class neighbourhood of Parc-Ex, there’s pretty much none of that.

Save for one big-name newcomer, the spots featured on this list are serving Greek and Indian fare reflecting the communities that have nestled here over the past decades. Be it a hearty curry or hefty plate of souvlaki, diners will get their fill on restaurant-lined streets of Jean Talon, Jarry, and a few others in between. And if your restaurant of choice is closed for the day or has stopped taking orders early, don’t fear: there’s likely something just as good only a few doors down.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Fameux Gyros Elatos

Copy Link

A prime Montreal go-to for succulent Greek gyro meats, served on platters or in pitas. The subs and Greek-leaning pizzas are serviceable too, though not the main draw.

Malhi Sweets

Copy Link

Known for its famous clientele (French actress Catherine Deneuve and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are both featured on its Facebook), Malhi Sweets focuses on the more savoury side of dining — in spite of its name. Expect staples like biryani, korma, and vindaloo.

Tripolis

Copy Link

This family-run Greek restaurant hasn’t changed much over the past almost three decades, and that’s a large part of the appeal. Dig into giant platters of souvlaki, and once dining rooms reopen, plenty of Greek wine to wash it all down, naturally.

Afroditi

Copy Link

Afroditi is a Montreal mainstay for its vast selection of Greek pastries. Expect plenty of phyllo-wrapped treats, both sweet and savoury, and don’t miss out on the baklava: some of the best in the city.

Marven's

Copy Link

This Greek institution has been a mainstay in the community since 1976, where on typical evenings it would draw crowds out the door. Nowadays, takeout keeps flowing and so does delivery with UberEats, with calamari, souvlaki, and other iterations of grilled meat packed to go.

Rôtisserie Panama

Copy Link

Boasting three locations across town including this one in Park Ex, Rotisserie Panama has all the trappings needed for a weekend (or weeknight) takeout splurge. When in doubt, one can’t go wrong with the mixed grill platter (to feed a few) and some fried calamari to start, with its selection of dips — tirokafteri (red pepper and feta), skordalia (potatoe garlic), and, of course, tzatziki — making for worthy add-ons.

Dosa Pointe

Copy Link

Unsurprisingly, South Indian pancake-like dosa is the house specialty at Dosa Pointe. Although it’s only been around since 2016, it has already amassed quite the following for serving up that rice and lentil crepe, filled with potato, paneer, or chutney, as well as other traditional southern Indian dishes.

Chand Palace

Copy Link

Chand Palace and the subsequent two options on this list are within mere steps of each other, and the queues they each generate for their North Indian curries tend to be equally matched. They do delivery for those within a 5 km radius — just give them a call.

Maison Indian Curry

Copy Link

As the name suggests, Indian curries are the house specialty here and their reasonably priced thali plates go for around $10. They also offer a selection of dosa; thin, rice flour pancakes served with chutney and other condiments.

Bombay Mahal

Copy Link

This Jean-Talon favourite serves up staples from bhaji to butter chicken, and everything in between. Go for the lunch specials, most of which fall under $10 for plates of curry, tikka, and kebab.

Restaurant Beau Mont - Signé Toqué

Copy Link

Hands down the fanciest eatery in the area, Beau Mont is currently serving up dishes like maple-miso whelk, beef tartar, salmon confit with cippolini onions, and cheese and charcuterie boards for takeout. There are some more casual offerings like burgers, ribs, and fries, but expect them to be executed with the same care as famed Montreal chef Normand Laprise takes in all his endeavours.
