Enjoy Montreal’s Cabane Panache et bois rond 2017

From March 23 to 26, more than 80,000 visitors are expected in the borough of Verdun for the seventh edition of Cabane Panache et bois rond, which means the "biggest wood party" in town.  On the menu: good grub, traditional dancing, good grub, activities, a lumberjack camp and more good grub. Here are the 16 participating restaurants and the "bouchées" they will be offering. [image credit: Promenade Wellington]

La Marquise Express

4136A rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V7

This restaurant, which offers Greek and Quebecois dishes in a local, authentic way, will offer up maple "pouding chômeur" (a Quebecois dish meaning "poor-man's pudding") ($2) and maple ham poutine ($4).

Crèmes Boboule

4640, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1W9

There’s nothing better than an ice cream shop open in the middle of March. The proof? You will surely be delighted by the maple cones ($2) and the ham waffle cones, the latter cooked in beer and maple for 12 hours. For $4, it's not too high of a price to pay.

Boulangerie Rustique Sweet Lee's

4150, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V7

Those in need of sugar and pastries, look no further. This shop offers dark chocolate-maple-caramel brownies ($2) and bacon-apple-maple croissants ($4).

Comptoir 21 Fish & Chips

4844, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1X4

Verdun's "grand diplômé" of Fish n 'Chips will give you the taste of the sea with its classic creamy clam chowder ($4). It will also inspire you to open your own sugar shack/maple grove with its maple cookie. The choice is yours.

Restaurant Mayicha

4830 Rue De Verdun, Verdun, QC H4G 1N1

Because "lumberjack" means Caribbean and African food, of course! Pick up ginger-mango maple syrup juice ($2) and chicken with lime, fennel, cucumber noodles and plantains ... and maple syrup ($4). See? Very local and authentic.

Marché Tondreau

5589, rue de Verdun, Verdun, QC H4H 1L2

The Verdun Street butcher shop/fruit store offers homemade sausages with apple and maple syrup ($2) and pulled pork with maple… and whiskey ($4). To be eaten in moderation!

Blackstrap BBQ

4436, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1W5

Going to Blackstrap is an instant visit to the edge of Tennessee... to Memphis, precisely. So there will be a little Memphis in your maple baked beans served with BBQ pork ($2 and $4).

Maison De Thé Cha Noir

4611, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1X1

The magnificent, local Maison de thé (tea house) Cha Noir offers a relaxing moment with its "temps des sucres" (maple sugaring time) tea or its "Labrador tea" ($2 and $4), which you can enjoy accompanied by maple shortbread ($2).

Bagel Saint-Lo

5411, rue de Verdun, Verdun, QC H4H 1K6

Because a bagel goes well with EVERYTHING. Especially with maple syrup ($2) or its "naughty" version with maple smoked pork and melted Swiss cheese ($4).

Station W

3852, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V2

This cafe, which prides itself on serving local and homemade products, will delight you with its grilled cheese sandwich made with French toast, sharp cheddar cheese and bacon. It has what it takes to give you enough strength to cut down a tree with your hands after you eat it, but do not do it ($2 and $4).

Garage Café

275, rue Hickson, Verdun, QC H4G 2J7

The restaurant which offers burgers, pasta and grilled items and which does not have a garage as the name suggests – of course – serves up a mini burger with ashy cheese, maple caramelized onions and bacon ($4). To top it off, we go with the "tarte au sucre de papa" (papa's sugar pie) ($2). Papa not included.

Les Iles En Ville

5335, rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4H 1N3

When it comes to seafood, we always want more. So, happiness will be ours by tasting their seal and smoked mackerel with cranberry jam ($2) or the seafood soup ($4).
