Toque Montreal | Ranked Best Restaurant in Canada

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”15701″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][vc_column_text]

Toque Montreal is ranked best restaurant in Canada. Second on the list is Hawksworth Restaurant at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver. Naturally we had to try this being in Montreal for the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference. Toque is located on 900 Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle; just around the corner from Le Westin Montreal. And it is easily accessible by the Metro. Get off at Station Square-Victoria. Toque’s Executive Normand Laprise culinary philosophy is all about “une cuisine de produits”. Using fresh ingredients to delivery flavorful dishes.

Toque reminds us a lot of Le Crocodile in Vancouver. It blends traditional French cooking with innovative sense of fun. The restaurant itself is modern and patrons primarily are business professionals. We recommend dressing for the occasion. Gentlemen, remember that sports coat. Oh, and no sneakers!

Amuse Bouche: tuna apple confit with crispy bread. I love the bright apple that elevates the taste of tuna.

Blue Fin Tuna Tartare: When the ingredients are fresh, it just speaks for itself.

DUCK MAGRET AND HEART 50: This warm and earthy dish is filled with shiitake mushrooms, carrots, pear, Jerusalem artichoke, black garlic purée and Madeira sauce. The duck is rich and cooked perfectly.

SUCKLING PIG LOIN 50: oyster mushrooms, apple, celery, squash purée and poivrade sauce. In hind sight, we realized this dish resembled a lot of the duck magret and probably would have ordered the cod or the Agnolotii with duck confit and foie gras instead. Nonetheless, the pig loin was tender and quite delicious.

We were so tired after a long flight that we didn’t have much of an appetite. For desserts, I would have loved to try the blueberry mousse or the iced raspberry mousse with cocoa and almond dacquoise, Manjari chocolate ganache, and cocoa nib infusion. They all sounded fabulous.

Instead, we were presented with brown sugar fudge and white chai chocolates. The brown sugar fudge was amazingly define. It was sweet but not so sweet that makes you cringe. It melted in our mouths.

Toque restaurant is a great location for a special celebration and for those who want to experience traditional French fine dining. The prices are reasonably priced and the staff welcoming. Next time, I would want to try the tasting menu simply because we’ve done the a la carte style already.

I would recommend ordering a la carte and share the a few appetizers you have your heart set on. The menu can be quite decadent and rich. I hope you have a big stomach!

When in Montreal, one must explore Old Montreal.  Vieux Montreal is very charming. So much character and plenty of old architectures, restaurants and Notre Dame Basilique.
