Montreal's Original Dunn's Famous Opens in Vancouver

A Montreal institution Dunn's Famous opened in Vancouver on Tuesday night with a very successful grand opening event at their new location on Seymour St, just south of Robson, on the ground floor of the new Capital Residences condo building. 

Dunn's Famous is one of Montreal's renowned Montreal smoked meat establishments and has been in business since 1927. 

I was in Montreal last year and I have to say I missed Dunn's, but I was sure happy to get some smoked meat goodness on Tuesday night right here in Vancouver.

I was able to sample their smoked meat sandwich with mustard which was excellent. The meat was juicy and flavourful and the bread was not dry at all.

I also tried a couple of their sliders. The buns were great, the friend onions were tasty, but the meat was a little dry.

The last savoury item I got my hands on was the coveted poutine and it did not let me down at all.  Good fries with a good quality cheese and, of course, gravy. 

In the back room (this space would be great for a private function by the way, they had some deserts. Having of done in it on the meet and cheese, I only tried one, the carrot cake. It was moist, sweet and delicious.

The main room at Dunn's Famous features high ceilings and lots of big semi-circular booths along one, faux-brick, wall.  

So head on down to 827 Seymour Street and check out an Quebec tradition at Dunn's Famous.
