Antep Kabab – Addictive Turkish Cuisine

Antep Kabab is a small Turkish restaurant located near Concordia University. They have the best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had in Montreal! Every time I pass by the neighborhood, I can’t resist the urge to drop in and get a sandwich to go. At $6.50 each, it’s a steal!

The restaurant bakes their own bread that is soft and chewy on the inside with plenty of air, and slightly crispy outside. The meat is grilled to perfection and just the right amount of charcoal. They have the option of chicken, beef, and lamb. But chicken is definitely my favorite. It’s flavorful and not dry at all.

If you can eat spicy food, ask for some spice in the sandwich. It makes the taste so much better. But beware, it’s REALLY spicy.

When I’m feeling like a piglet, I’d order their platter with extra bread (because just half a bread is certainly not enough!).

Zoe’s food truck mostly serves big portion delicious sandwiches!


I tried their Sloppy Jane sandwich ($8) the other day and it was amazing!

It’s filled with minced hamburger meat with chili and coleslaw. Nom!

There’s so much filling inside that after eating the sandwich I still had a meal’s worth of meat and chili left.

Nudo is one of my go-to cheap eats spot in Chinatown. The price is under $10 for one bowl of noodles. Of course it’s a typical Chinatown restaurant and you can’t expect fancy decor or presentation. But the food is well worth the money!

They specializes in pulled noodle made by pulling the dough many times into thin noodles.

I love their noodle because the soup is so flavourful, and the noodles are just the right amount of chewy. The marinated vegetable on top of the noodles also adds to the overall deliciousness.


My typical order is a small dish of edamame to start. Then the usual braised beef noodle soup. Yum!

I love oysters and I cannot lie! So what’s better than slurping on $1 oysters that won’t break my wallet (or my nails when shucking)?


Here’s a list of the cheap oysters spots I know about so far. Let me know if you’ve discovered new great spots, or have found out one of the places no longer offers $1 oysters.

Disclaimer: Lots of the oyster specials are seasonal. So it’s better to call the restaurant and confirm that they still have the special on the day of your visit!
