WANDER – Rue Fb. Saint Martin
hop on over from Rue Fb Saint Denis that was (alright still is! ) THE trendy street in this part of town – but Rue Faubourg Saint Martin is coming for the take over with already a cool coffee shop -(Blackburn), Awesome Cocktails (Copper Bay) , good/ healthy bagels ( Hobo ) and now this Vegetarian street food place (Elaichi) . It’s cool – because I remember for years riding down this street and seeing only wholesalers selling kids clothes or closed spaces… what a welcoming change to make the neighborhood more diverse and offering so many good spots with a little bit of everything for every one.
