The Other Müvbox Video
by Harry / July 15, 2009


By now many of you have seen the video of the Müvbox, the sustainable/ fresh local food restaurant in a container, the first of which landed in the Old Port of Montreal earlier this Summer. We went there for lunch yesterday to take a closer look...



Our video...



... and the original Müvbox video.

From muvboxconcept.com:

"Located in Montreal's Old Port, Müvbox offers a variety of dishes featuring lobster from Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Created from an old shipping container powered by solar energy, this concept is a modern-day reinvention of the old-fashioned canteen which creates an experience that's environmentally-friendly, ethical and affordable. Every night, Müvbox vanishes back into its cube, redeploying early the next morning in less than two minutes, at the touch of a button!"

We saw three new for Montreal things yesterday; the Müvbox, a Bixi bike and the Summer-of-endless-rain. Bixi is the Public Bike System in Montreal launched in May, a bicycle sharing system run by the city. So you could say the three things we saw were; sustainable, sustainable and climate change.

The solar array is clearly visible whereas the sun is not. Not sure if they had back up power, but as you can see in the video, it's primarily a kitchen and they have a large screen LCD TV playing continuously (showing a Planet Earth Blu-ray no less).

The house specialty is lobster rolls with lobster from les Îles-de-la-Madeleine, which is down the St-Lawrence river from Montreal. As you can see the portions were generous and the lobster was fresh. A side order of clam chowder completes the maritime theme, it is a shipping container after all. And the pizza had to be good, Müvbox founder Daniel Noiseux is the restaurateur behind the upscale Pizzaiolle eateries in Montreal.

The customer service end of the container.

Later that evening the Müvbox is closed.
