Beyond the (lunch) Box
The restaurant’s name, La boîte à lunch, belies he fact that the 3-year-old establishment is a treasure, and one of the best kept culinary secrets of the West End.

The modest menu, a two-sided photocopy, mentions in small letters that it is a Romanian restaurant and more. Much more, actually. The excellent cook whips up traditional Eastern European fare, complete with three kinds of ciorba, a Romanian soup flavoured with dill and lemon, made with beans, meatballs or tripe.
Other exotic treats include mamaliga (polenta, or cornmeal, with feta cheese and sour cream), schnitzel (breaded chicken breast served with a variety of garnishes) and strudel served hot and sweet, liberally sprinkled with icing sugar.
With its low prices, huge variety of dishes, generous servings and authentic home cooking, a visit to this restaurant is a must. You’ll be sure to return, again and again.
La boîte à lunch is located at 6707 Sherbrooke W. There is a pick-up service as well as free and fast delivery for those cold autumn nights.
Open 7 days 11 am - 9pm. Info: (514) 482-0606.
