Avesta Resto Café: A Turkish Delight

Nothing beats a cheap eat, and in Montreal, my number one recommendation for a gastronomic extravaganza on a budget is Avesta Resto Café located at 2077 rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest. Here, you can eat a filling and scrump-didily-umptious meal for about $10. Constantly stationed in the window is the best advertisement for a restaurant that I’ve...
