After poutine week, pizza week and burger week, what could be more fitting than for Montreal to celebrate this Mexican dish, prepared here in 1001 different ways? Say hello to the first Montreal Taco Week, taking place from October 15-22. A number of Montreal restaurants will be offering a very special version of the taco for $10 or less throughout the week, including...
