More than just a neighbourhood restaurant with a few tables, Ange et Ricky is a Haitian island in the heart of Montreal. Decorated much like a Caribbean snack bar, its walls are painted a fresh green that are refreshing in heat waves. The experience is even more exotic during the cold winter days when the smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and anis fill the air.
An Initiation to Haitian Gastronomy
Everyday, Ange and her grandson Ricky gladly defend Haiti’s reputation for hospitality. This charming grandma prepares and serves the meals herself, always making time to answer clients’ questions. Ricky serves the vanilla flavoured lemonade and takes care of the small grocery store that offers Haitian ingredients that are otherwise hard to find.
At Ange et Ricky, you’ll be able to sample all the meals that are regularly served in Haiti. The most popular ones are the cabrit (goat meat cooked until it is very tender), the tassot (marinated beef served with peppers and onions), plantains (fried bananas), piklis (cabbage and carrot salad), and the vegetable platter made of chayote, tomatoes, carrots and lime beef. Of course, there is the unavoidable fried chicken with spices. These meals are accompanied by a salty rice, which gets its name from the red colour of the beans it contains. For dessert, try the crunchy praline and ginger cachous.
