Montréal, Reuben's Deli & Steaks #1 Visit

Reuben's Deli & Steaks on Urbanspoon

Hello everyone!
This is another Montréal food blog entry. Apparently, there were two Reuben's Deli & Steaks Restaurants in Montréal. My friend wanted to meet up at the other one, not this one I'm blogging about.  The other Reuben's that is just around the corner from this Reuben's, their smoked meat poutine was a bit cheaper.
Sounds confusing? I know! When I looked up Reuben's their website showed only this address and I came straight to their large lounge like restaurant. The other their restaurant is smaller and has stairs when entering for your information.

It has a great atmosphere, mainly filled with young people and families.

You need to climb two flights of stairs to access the washrooms.

More seats....

The cake display window showed some attractive cakes.

Yes! Fresh Bread!

The smoked meat poutine...
It was good but it wasn't as great as Frite Alors!'s Smoked Meat Poutine.
Cheese curds were also fresh here.
I walked around Montréal asking the local people and workers, "Where can I get the best French Onion Soup?" To my disappointment, everyone didn't know. One girl working at a bakery pointed out Reuben's has the best French Onion soup in the area.

I know I'm a generous person, I will give you a bite of the cheesy soup.
Oh wait! I didn't give you a piece of the bread soaked in the onion broth and a piece of a caramelized onion. Say "Ahhhh!" and open your mouth.
And of course you can taste just the broth by itself.

I adore the smoked meat in Montréal. The smoked meat reminds me of Corn Beef, perfectly salted and the texture? How can I describe the texture? Crumbly in a good way?

This was a nice bite of the poutine with a little bit of everything! 

The Strawberry Cheesecake was heaven! 

Danny had expressed he wants to return just for their cheesecake.

The Strawberry cheesecake was fresh and extremely rich. I mean you can have a dairy dinner with just the cake alone and it will fill you up! I felt very heavy in the end but this cheesecake wasn't too sweet and it didn't taste super processed.

Sooo good! Strawberry Puree with condensed milk.

So many packages of smoked meat! :D

I would definitely return to Reuben's next time I visit Montréal. I would give it 4.0/5.0 stars. The food is good.. but it can be better. The customer service is excellent depending on which hour you drop by. Overall, the place was clean, tidy, servers were nice, knowledge and given their recommendations.
