I am almost ashamed to say that I have never been to Montreal.
Also, I am equally ashamed that I have never tried a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich before.
What is wrong with me? This week, I decided that this had to change.
I weighed my options. It was between flying out to Montreal to try the sandwich staple, or just finding one in Calgary and saving $700.
Stay here it was!
Myhre’s Deli is located in a little strip of shops just a couple blocks north of 17th Ave.
I stayed traditional with my choice and went with The Montreal Classic ($9).
It was a sandwich that was loaded with smoked meat, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo.
It was filling and tasty enough, although I regretted not adding mustard to the sandwich, of which the eatery had an array of options.
It came with a generous side of pickles, and I can never have enough pickles! Bonus points!
