MONTREAL - Earlier in 2018-19, we caught up with Canadiens forward Tomas Tatar to learn about his favorites in a variety of categories.

ONE RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD PEOPLE MUST TRY

I really liked KOMODO in Miami, or Bagatelle in Monaco, or Nusr-Et in New York. I'm a restaurant guy so I have a lot.

There is just something special about these Garden views..

ONE ALBUM PEOPLE MUST ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION

It's hard to say if it's a must-have because I listen to different music than most people here, I listen to EDM. My go-to is probably Tiesto's older album, which is where EDM probably started. He had a lot of good songs, so that's probably my choice.

ONE CAR PEOPLE MUST DRIVE

I would probably tell people, I have an Audi R8. I think it's a fun car for people to drive, I think they'd enjoy it a lot. It's a four-wheel drive and it handles well.

When turn signals turn heads. #WantAnR8

ONE MOVIE PEOPLE MUST WATCH

I don't really have one movie… I like a lot of movies. It would be hard for me to pick one. For example, the last one that stands out in my mind is Bird Box, I found it was pretty cool to see. It was interesting, it got me thinking.

ONE ACTIVITY PEOPLE MUST TRY

The one that raised my adrenaline the most was probably roller coasters. I love Six Flags. I've never tried the one here in Montreal, I can't wait to. I'm definitely a guy who likes to get the adrenalin higher, so I would say whoever hasn't been on a roller coaster before should go try it.

ONE BRAND/TYPE OF CLOTHING PEOPLE MUST TRY

State & Liberty. They make dress shirts that fit on whoever's body, they fit well and they're not expensive. They're great material. I think that company is coming up really fast. A lot of hockey players are wearing them. You can go on their website, the shirts are named after hockey players from different teams. That's one of the best inventions I've found since I've been playing in the League. It was really convenient for us.

ONE TV SHOW PEOPLE MUST WATCH

I'm a more funny TV shows guy. I would probably go either Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother. And now I'm watching Breaking Bad and I can't stop watching it, it's a great show. I watch Narcos, a really interesting show too. It depends what you like.

ONE EXOTIC FOOD PEOPLE MUST TRY

I've been to Thailand, I ate a lot of crazy stuff. I tried a cockroach. I tried a snake, there was a lot of different stuff. I can pretty much eat anything, so I don't mind trying new things. But there, when I saw what they were eating I was like, 'Whoa'. I needed to get ready for it. I tried it all, but I was really skeptical about it.

So would you recommend the cockroach?
No. (laughs) The cockroach was really crunchy.
