Montreal – YUL
Thumping kompa beats form the ideal base layer for a mix-your-own ti’ ponch service: Barbancourt agricole rum with fresh-pressed cane juice, cane syrup and plentiful lime. Power couples from Toronto’s Black Hoof restaurant empire and Montreal rock band Arcade Fire are behind the raucous Haitian charm of this hyper-colourful, art-piece-filled space in the Gay Village. Pour another ti’ ponch, and dig into hearty plates of fried malanga-root accras, stewed oxtail and tender slow-cooked pumpkin in coconut sauce.
