Ben's Deli: "Montreal Smoked Meat!" Ben's Deli - CLOSED Tip by jamiesno
Ben's Deli - CLOSED, Montreal: 9 reviews and 9 photos
There are two places that stick to mind in Montreal one was a place called Dundee's and the other was Ben's Famous Montreal Smoke Meat Place, both are definitely worth the visit!
The original owners of Ben's were the Kravitz family who emigrated from Lithuania in 1908 and brought with them this special sandwich. It seems everyone in Montreal knows about Ben's Delicatessen or as it is commonly called "Bens." In fact, when you enter the restaurant you will notice several pictures of movie celebrities who have eaten Ben's smoked meat sandwiches. I am even informed that some of the top U.S. Hollywood actors have even asked to have the sandwich flown to them into the USA.
When you are in there it is classic diner style like something you would see out of a 1950's movie. That atmosphere alone made it fun but the food of course was the best!!!!
You have to try Smoked Meat while you are there, it's like going to Philadelphia and not have a Philly Steak Sandwich?!?
