Japanese

Marusan

Consider this Time Out Market project to be the crossroads of two great Montreal culinary masterminds. It’s where Hideyuki Imaizumi, whose hospitality savvy can be found inside the Plateau café Osmo x Marusan, meets Chinatown’s smash hit Fleurs et Cadeaux and the work of its chef and co-owner Tetsuya Shimizu. Together, they’re creating some of the best Japanese fare in town with bowls of savory ramen and curry donburi, silky onsen (‘hot spring’) eggs, and crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside karaage. One bite was all it took for us, and that’s all it will take to get you hooked, too. Order dine-in or takeout
