This simple yet oh so tasty idea that was featured last year on the Food Network’s “You gotta eat here!” with John Catucci started in 2013 when brothers Rahim and Aly Moloo opened their first store in Kingston, Ontario. After watching their clientele grow steadily, they went on to open a location in Ottawa in 2014, and finally are here in Montreal.

At the grand opening this past Wednesday, the two brothers welcomed customers to their first flagship store on Mont Royal Avenue. Their full menu was available for a taste. Whether you were looking for something traditional like their classic grilled cheese, or wanted to try something new, like the pulled pork grilled cheese there was something on the menu to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. And for those looking for something a little more on the sweet side, the cheesecake and s’mores sandwiches made with their homemade crème brûlée french toast batter, were a great end to a truly comforting meal.
