The King Of Subs In Montréal
Type of Cuisine: Submarine Sandwiches
Where did you have it: Royal Sousmarins located at 10 Bernard West, Montreal, Quebec
This is a true greasy spoon in every sense of the word. Mostly a take-out, delivery and to-go eatery, this old school diner or casse-croute as they are called in Quebec has years of production under its belt and it shows. Watching one of the owner whip up one of these bad boys is always fun. You can tell the motions have been learned and re-learned time and time again over the 30+ years of operation.
This place not only offers a wide variety of subs (my favorite being the Royal Special sub, which includes steak, ham, pepperoni topped with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and of course their “special” dressing which seems to be a regular salad dressing but the combination is totally awesome!) but is also known for it’s greasy cheese topped pizzas. When ordering from Royal Sous-marins whatever it may be, you truly feel the comfort in this comfort food master.
How much?: The subs range from $7 to $10 depending on if you go for 7” or 14”, also you can opt for the buy 3 get the 4th sub free! I love this deal it’s perfect for watching the game with your buddies or just ordering in with the hungry family!
Much like cold pizza, these subs are even better as leftovers, for some reason everything settles overnight and becomes more flavourful, so ordering an extra 1 is always a good idea (gluttony-wise)
Also Dr.Pepper is the BEST libation to swish it all down with!
Rate it 1 to 10 : 8.5 on 10, the next day it’s a 9.5 on 10…I’m salivating just thinking about it…
