The “cultural street” a brand new culinary concept to highlight the different cultural communities of the Province of Quebec

Les Premiers Vendredis, presented by Skip the Dishes, are coming back in great force and will take over the Esplanade of the Olympic Park for its tenth year on June 3 from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. In addition to the many kiosks and food counters, a brand new concept in 2022: The Cultural Street, a location (on the esplanade) reserved for the culinary theme of the month. It is therefore Mexico that will be in the spotlight on June 3rd, 2022 with these merchants:

Restaurant Ariz5, Mad Mexican, Arriba burrito, Calaveras, Mi Corazon, MASA, Andros El Tacos, Lili and Gordo

To present the first theme (Mexico) and its cultural street of the June edition, Les Premiers Vendredis have chosen as guests of honour: Maria Chavez and Hector Veladiz, owners of Restaurant Maria Bonita, a typical Mexican restaurant located in the heart of Montreal on St Laurent Street for more than 20 years. They also made the first authentic Mexican street food dishes in the metropolis!
