Maple Leaf Restaurant is a new deli on Jumeirah Beach Road that offers Canadian food lovers a taste of Montreal. Having lived in Canada for 8 years, the news of being able to enjoy Canadian inspired smoked meat sandwiches and poutine in Dubai was quite exciting!
The restaurant is casual, simple, and full of Canadian pride! Upon entering the deli, you feel the same cozy & warm touch that you would feel walking into a deli on the streets of Montreal. Sitting indoors, you can watch the chef prepare your dishes…..Sitting outdoors, you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of JBR.
The restaurant’s menu is customized around their unique sandwich offerings. I opted for The Maple Leaf Combo with Poutine.
The Maple Leaf Sandwich (smoked meat piled high with caramelized onions, swiss cheese, and house dressing served on rye bread) and Poutine (with homemade fries) were absolutely delicious! You have to get your hands dirty while you eat their sandwiches, but saucy hands definitely add to the whole mouth watering experience.
Anyone who has visited or lived in Canada knows Beaver Tails (…only Canada’s most famous dessert…wikipedia if needed). After finishing my meal, I couldn’t leave without trying the Castor Tail (which is the restaurant’s version of Beaver Tails). The crunchy, sugar frosted Castor Tail with a side of Nutella definitely hit the spot for the truly missed Beaver Tails.
Whether you want to reconnect with Canadian favorites or try something new, Canadian Maple Leaf Restaurant is a must visit!
