All Dressed Bagel

Montreal (Canada) is known for its “all dressed” bagel, “all dressed” hot dog and “all dressed” pizza. Montreal’s “all dressed” bagel is similar to New York City’s “everything bagel.” Fairmount Bagel (Montreal’s oldest bagel bakery) states that its “all dressed” bagel is “covered with a mixture of onion, garlic, caraway, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and coarse salt.”
“All dressed” has been cited in print since at least 1998.

Dining in Canada can also be a distinct experience. You will not find any of these words in non-Canadian dictionaries: poutine, tourtiere, all-dressed, or smoked meat. The Canadian Oxford Dictionary even had the gastronomical sense to include an entry for “Montreal bagel,” defined as “a type of bagel, originally made in Montreal, which is lighter, thinner, and sweeter than other kinds of bagels.”

How different is Montreal English from the English spoken elsewhere in Canada?
The first reaction of many people would doubtless be: “Just a few words here and there.” Depanneur is the most obvious example: You’d never catch someone in Toronto or Vancouver saying she was off to buy milk at the dep.
“All-dressed” is another local idiom. We use the phrase to mean a food item garnished with everything available, and seldom, if ever, do we order a supreme pizza or a loaded burger. But outside Quebec, Canadians tend to restrict “all dressed” to clothing.

St. Viateur Bagel had the most awesome all-dressed bagels I’ve ever had. They were light, they were fluffy… and they taste like onions. Mmm. Onions. This was Mr. Zombie’s hands down favourite.
The salad dominatrix rules cafe
Suzy Sung blames the traders of Bay Street, who work in the banking towers above her restaurant, for transforming a sweet girl from China into the salad dominatrix of the underground city.

Every soup or salad here comes with a marbled, poppy, sesame or “all-dressed” bagel, but please do not refer to that last choice as a “New York bagel.”
“Why do they call it a New York bagel?” asks Ms. Sung. “We are not New York. Somebody calls it a New York bagel, they can’t have one. It’s a Toronto bagel.”

Les Bagels de Montreal
Oh, but a Montreal bagel is a different animal from its American frère, as I also discovered on that trip: thinner, with a hole big enough that you could wear it as a bracelet, and slightly sweet even when sprinkled with savory toppings—or “all dressed,” as they call an everything bagel.

Our insider’s guide on where to eat in Montreal

Fairmount Bagel: (74 Avenue Fairmount, 514-272-0667) Some of Montreal’s best eats are also the city’s cheapest. At the very top of the cheap eats list is the iconic Montreal-style bagel, which is sweeter, smaller, and denser than its American counterpart. Mile End outpost Fairmount makes our favorite iteration, hand-rolling the dough and then baking them in a wood-fired oven until the specimens emerge steaming and slightly misshapen. The “all-dressed” bagel (Montreal slang for onion, garlic, caraway, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and salt) is exemplary.
