There are a number of awards and accolades attributed to this Mile End Delicatessen, but for the sake of simplicity, suffice it to say that Schwartz’s serves the best smoked-meat sandwich in North America. The kosher-style haunt opened in 1928, and launched Montreal’s now-famous smoked-meat obsession. If you do dine here, go big or go home; the signature features a colossal pile of smoked meat (medium and medium-fat are the best) topped with yellow mustard and sandwiched by two pieces of hearty rye bread. Be aware of the lunchtime rush—this is a Montreal favorite.
