Montreal is Ranked 13th Best Food City in the World!


EC Montreal students have more to celebrate! They have chosen to study in one of the world’s best cities to eat in!

Not only are there many culinary schools, many celebrity chefs also have restaurants right here in Montreal! The island of Montreal has more than 6000 restaurants.

No matter what you are in the mood for, you will find it in Montreal! Not only is there great variety, the quality of our restaurants is top notch! In fact, Montreal was recently named the 13th best food city in the world by Thrillist.

Thrillist had the following to say about Montreal’s food:

“Montreal makes the list both for what it brings in history (the famous smoked meat, which, if you have it done right at Schwartz’s, will ensure you never eat “Canadian bacon” again; poutine of all shapes and flavors) and modern cooking, with places like Au Pied de Cochon, Olive et Gourmando, plus crazy forward-thinking food and drink being cooked…”
