I am a lover of all foods, but sometimes my carnivorous side takes over. And suddenly, all I think, crave and want is meat.
On an occasion like this, last March, I found myself at Montreal’s most famous Churrascaria, le Milsa.
Le Milsa holds as many as 8 locations, and even one Milsa Poisson (same concept/all seafood) opened right next to the restaurant’s original location, on rue Bishop.
The concept is simple and quite interesting: waiters tour tables with 10 types of meat (the selection du jour of the chef), and a card turned red or green at your table gives them the signal… when to stop feeding you. The meats are grilled on charcoal and served on skewers, the waiters maneuver sharp knives to slice off cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken or turkey right on your plate. With sautéed mushrooms, salads, rice and sweet potatoes, along with red wine (one must!), here, one eats until he is very full. On our visit, a few types of sausages, some chicken with bacon and different sirloins were served. The lamb, Monsieur notes, was particularly good.
Le Milsa isn’t your typical-tartar-high-gastronomy, but here… people come for the all-you-can-eat meat and the party! Loud lively music, dancers moving to the rhythm, trying to get you to dance with them, pulling you up from your seat. It’s all very entertaining, and then comes the pièce de resistance: grilled pineapple dusted with cinnamon for dessert.
