Grab some vegan ramen from Dalla Rose


What: Dalla Rose, the hip new ice cream spot that opened in Montreal’s St Henri neighbourhood this past summer, has swapped out the ice cream for vegan ramen. In the best turnaround of the century, Dalla Rose has closed up shop for the winter, and a new eatery, Ramen 9000, has stepped in to fill its place. Described as a pop-up restaurant, Ramen 9000 serves up a menu of delicious ramen options – but only for a limited time each day. Despite the pop-up’s vegan branding, non-vegans have the option of adding pork or eggs to their dish.
When: Wednesday to Sunday, 12 pm
Where: 4609 Rue Notre Dame Ouest
