Chez Jose Restaurant in Montreal

For our second Herbivore Society outing, Lydia, Veronika, Megan and I gather at Chez José, a small café on the corner of Duluth and Hotel de Ville. This local favorite is unmissable due to its colorful painted exterior. And with its funky wallpaper, green wooden chairs and laid-back European music, Café José is just as vibrant on the inside.

While the establishment is neither vegetarian nor vegan, it does offer a number of options for all the herbivores out there (this makes perfect business sense, since I estimate 1 out of 4 Plateau residents fall into the latter category). Megan and I order the fresh and filling végé-pâté sandwich, which comes served on those red checkered papers and baskets that remind me of Applebee's (in a good way). Lydia tries the vegan Portuguese breakfast plate, which consists in sizzling accompagnied with sautéed veggies and potatoes, served with a végé-paté salad and toast. And she loves it.

Veronika and Megan each order one of the establishment's fruit juices, as well, and are very please with them. We're all too full to try any dessert, but you might want to try the freshly baked turnovers and croissants displayed at the counter - they look pretty insane.

Strange pro tip: Try the bathroom. It's cool.

The rest of this post is essentially a random assortment of all the insanely cool street art on display out and about in my home neighborhood of the Plateau.

PS: If anyone knows what the heck up with that abandoned building decorated with many small frames and stickers, I'd love to find out!
