My fascination for Japanese culture has no boundaries and I need to go back pronto. But in the meantime, I’m lucky to learn a few things from friends, books and of course spots! Falco is a kind of lunch joint located in a nook in the east end of the Mile-end district. Their clientèle are mostly people from the buildings and artists from the neighborhood, like myself.
Falco offers a menu with a few delicate and yummy dishes and great tea or coffee. They also sell a few artifacts that scream good design. It’s the kind of place that makes you want to stay and finish your book; sweet music and a soothing atmosphere. Since it’s off the grid, it’s never too crowded and thus perfect for an informal meeting or a relaxing time-out.
Parts of the décor are industrial knitting elements from those textile factories that were in place back in the day. A perfect blend of austerity and warmth thanks to the wood and concrete that come together very nicely.
