If you live downtown Montreal, you may have heard of Chef On Call, the gourmet fast food delivery service known for its home-style cooking and late-night hours. My downtown friends have praised it, so I was thrilled to have a chance to try it and write this review. As a Concordia grad myself, it's exciting to see a Concordia-grown, business succeed and grow. They're now expanding their delivery services and will open a third location on Cote-Des-Neiges later this month.

Chef On Call is not your ordinary fast food: they offer an exciting range of sandwiches, burgers, pastas, salads, milkshakes, desserts and more. Rather than generic, mass-produced options, Chef On Call takes pride in its homemade recipes, made with love and delivered with a smile.

For my lunch I enjoyed the Chic spinach salad, the Cubano Wrap, and a mix of french fries, sweet potato fries, and onion rings accompanied by various dipping sauces - a very impressive spread. 

 I started with the Chic, a mix of baby spinach, goat cheese, honey toasted walnuts and dried sweet cranberries, topped with the Chef's balsamic vinaigrette. It was fresh, crisp, and packed with flavours that hit the palette in all the right places. The texture of the soft cheese and the hard walnuts complemented each other and added substance. On its own, this salad would make the perfect light lunch. 

The Cubano wrap, filled with sauteed mushrooms, avocado, melted Monterey Jack cheese and the Chef's roasted garlic mayonnaise was hard to put down! I've had my fair share of vegetarian wraps and this was definitely in my top five. The combination of ingredients was on point and every bite was warm, gooey, and delicious. 

Still not convinced? Wait until you try the French fries. The generous portion of thick and crispy fries will satisfy any late night craving. You can have a lot of fun with the various dipping sauces (my favourite - honey dijon!) and the alternatives (sweet potato or onion rings, anyone?).

Not only does Chef On Call make great food, they're also responsible. Customers can appreciate the recyclable and biodegradable packaging, as well as the use of enviro-friendly electric scooters that get your order to your door.  So if you're a student, professional, or something in between and need a quick and delicious meal, the Chef is On Call and you can place an order at their new, easy-to-use website:
