Disclaimer: This meal was comped.
In a continuing trend of old businesses shutting down and new ones springing up on The Main, the longstanding Cafeteria is no more; making way to a new neighbourhood bar, Suwu, with a new concept and design. We were invited to the media launch this evening before the bar opened its doors to the public later on.
tagged: MEDIA EVENT
SuWu's interior is very rustic, set up with lots of wood. From the clad wall and the dressed bar to the slab communal tables, all the wood gives you a welcoming feeling. There is also a little vintage couch in one corner that just cries for you to sink in. The place filled out pretty quickly for the media event, and by 9pm tables were snatched up as soon as they went vacant.
Going along with the rustic welcoming feel, the menu carries comfort food favorites and bar grub: grilled cheese mac ‘n cheese sandwich, tacos, some fried items, BBQ ribs… The presentations will be different than our pictures as they were specially made for the event, so expect larger portions with some sides. Finally, we're not too big on cocktails, but the menu seems to have a few intriguing house specials.

Whether it's to watch the game, have a drink, or grab a bite, SuWu welcomes you as you are (please put a shirt on though) with a no-fuss attitude and a big smile. They should have no problem filling up those seats with the McGill students next door and Plateau residents not far off. We should be back to check them out soon enough.
"The service was haughty and impersonal. I paid for shooters I never drank! And my friends got charged twice for their drinks! It is a true shame.
Service hautain et impersonnel. J'ai payé pour des shooters que je n’ai pas consommés! Mes amis se sont fait charger leurs consommations DEUX fois! C'est totalement honteux et malhonnête."
