My favorite dish: Queen Gadboi poutine

Last week, I had the pleasure of checking out Greenspot as their guest! For those who have never heard of this place, Greenspot is a neighborhood favorite in Saint-Henri, with its original diner look and decor. Greenspot has been serving locals and tourists alike dishes like smoked meat, poutine, pizza, fish n chips, burgers and more, since 1947 (that’s 72 years!). Here are the dishes we got to try:

  • Pepperoni pizza
  • Jumbo smoked meat platter, served with French fries, coleslaw and pickle
  • Queen Gadboi poutine: poutine with sliced Pogos and onion rings
  • Le Maximum burger: double cheeseburger (cheddar and Swiss) with bacon

We enjoyed a good and hearty meal at Greenspot, but I would qualify it more as a neighborhood joint that anything else. Sure, if you grew up eating here once a week, I completely understand that you’re now accustomed to it and seek it out. The food was good, no complaints, but I can name places that I prefer for almost every dish (I’m sorry but few can beat Schwartz’s smoked meat – which I grew up eating). We did however really enjoy the Queen Gadboi poutine, which to me was one of the best poutines I’ve had in Montreal. Everything about it was delicious: the thick cut greasy homemade fries, the gravy, the cheese curds and the fried Pogo slices and onion rings.

If you’re looking for that authentic diner experience, then I definitely recommend giving Greenspot a try. The food is good and cheap and the portions very generous, so you definitely won’t leave on an empty stomach, that’s for sure.
