Travel Tip: Foodie Find – Hambar Restaurant and Bar in Montreal

Everyone that knows us knows that we enjoy finding new, unique and fabulous foodie places. During our first visit to Montreal in the province of Quebec, Canada, we stumbled upon the newly-opened Hambar Restaurant and Bar. What a fantastic find this turned out to be!

Love ham? Then this is the place to visit for an out-of-this-world ham fix. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, at the corner of McGill and Rue Saint Paul Ouest, Hambar Restaurant and Bar’s restaurant theme is centered around cured ham. What’s not to love about that?

Even before we stepped inside the front door, the cured ham theme was evident. An enclosed glass case at the entrance contains some of the most prized cured ham from Spain, France and Italy, hanging on display.

We spent almost two hours at the bar while we enjoyed a couple of pints of Stella Artois beer, and dined on the charcuterie small platter. A perfect way to enjoy a warm late-spring evening in Montreal.

The charcuterie small platter was large enough for the two of us to share for dinner. With a selection of pâtes, hams, pickled vegetables, along with Manchego cheese and crostini, we were in charcuterie heaven!
