Montreal named the #1 food destination

Jul 22 2016, 12:12 am

From bagels to bistros, Montreal is a food lovers’ paradise. Now the city can add further bragging rights when it comes to delicious dining out: Montreal comes in on top of a list of the “Rising Star Foodie Destinations” for 2016.

Bestowed upon Montreal and nine other lip-smacking locales, the Rising Star Foodie Destinations list comes from Gogobot, the travel-planning app and their Foodie Tribe Awards.

Culling from over 60,000 destinations in their database, their annual lists “based on the number of reviews from distinct travelers visiting the destination, the number of people creating trips on Gogobot for these destinations, and real travelers recommending these spots to the Foodie Tribe on Gogobot,” explains the company.

Also ranking on the list is fellow Canadian Vancouver, at a respectable #8.

Here’s what they have to say about some of Montreal’s dining highlights:

It’s hard to pick just a few restaurants from a city with an enviable amount of amazing options – however, feedback leads to the chocolate overload at Juliette e Chocolat, the foie gras and lobster at Joe Beef, and almost anything at Au Pied de Cochon.

A second list released by Gogobot may fuel your travel plans for the coming months. It’s a set of “Foodie Destinations On The Decline, But Worth A Second Look.” Ranked on there are longstanding global hotspots like Tuscany, Sydney, and Athens.
