Serious Eats is a seriously fun food blog, and while they enjoy and usually write well about fine dining, they also know how to point readers and eaters to good inexpensive eats as well. My mother – a.k.a. Mom, a.k.a. Nana – is travelling to Montreal and Quebec City with a dear friend from Switzerland early next summer. 48 Hours in Montreal: A Guide to Eating won’t entirely be to their taste (they don’t worship quite as ardently at the altar of the pig, for example) but they should find some valuable ideas here and it the comments. I may travel there next year too, but whenever I do, this will be one of my key references.
