Will do.
Do you like Indian food, as well? Pushap on Mountain Sights makes the best samosas. Tiny place with about 4 tables and great vegetarian food, cheap.
When I'm in the neighbourhood, I always stop for a dozen spicy samosas with tamarind sauce...about 5 bucks.

That's where we differ...I'm not a big fan of sweets, especially Asian sweets, with the emphasis on condensed milk and rice and nuts and coconut. When I go to an Indian restaurant where dessert is included, I tell them not to bother bringing those nasty little balls in syrup. They'll just go to waste.
I'm a huge fruit junkie.

Since we have the same tastes in savoury food, you'd love the sio pao from the Fiesta Pilipino bakery on Victoria.
Giant steamed dumplings stuffed with pork or chicken. Delicious.

Pushap was one of my favourite places to eat when I lived in MTL. Delicious and affordable. Over here, you pay 7-8$ for two samosas. It's outrageous I tell ya!

Those sio pao look great, reminds me of the BBQ pork bows at Dim Sum

Looks very similar, although I suspect sio pao are much bigger. They're about the size of a small hamburger. Yummy.
I love the food in this city. We're so spoiled.
