Jatoba

Last Friday I paid a visit to the recently opened restaurant Jatoba. I like what they did with the place. Located in the old Philips Lounge building they changed it totally and made it a lot homier with a nice decor with brick and wood.  I had made a last minute reservation and was actually lucky to get 2 places at the bar, the bar is nice and basically goes from one end to the other of the restaurant. It was a good spot to be at as I got to see some of the prep work for the dishes and had easy access to the bar.

The food is of Asian touch with very interesting tastes. The concept is for sharing different dishes, our server recommended 2-3 per person.  Our menu consisted of the following:

  • Ox tail dumpling with caramelized onions in a soya and yuzu beef broth.

  • Yellow tail tuna with jalapeno Asian pear and crispy ogo nori in clear soya

  • Beef Tataki with green bean, bitter peach, quinoa, enokis in a sonomono sauce.

  • Chicken kara-age in a fleur de sel and Chinese spices crust with ginger spinach

  • Vegetable fried rice

All the food was delicious but I particularly enjoyed the dumplings and the yellow tail tuna. They have good wine selection from different countries that allow you to choose the variety you like and besides having a cocktail menu also have a full bar. There are a lot of places opening in Montreal but if you are in the downtown area I would suggest you give it a try. They also serve lunch which could be a good way to enjoy their tasteful food. I strongly suggest a reservation the information is below or you can find them on Facebook.
