Northern Smokes

Northern Smokes

Why does barbecued food, especially smoked barbecue, taste so good? I’m tempted to get a smoker so I can smoke my own meat, but I irrationally think that someone or something will end up eating my food. I would not blame them… Who am I 

Patty Time

Patty Time

Party time!! 🎉 Oops, this post is supposed to be about Patty Time and patties… I think pretty much everyone (in the GTA) has eaten a patty at some point in their lives. When I was a kid, a lot of convenience stores sold patties 

World Famous Pizza

World Famous Pizza

I first heard of World Famous Pizza when someone I know mentioned that the pizza there is so good, they drive all the way from Don Mills Rd to Morningside Ave to get it for their team lunches at work. Since it is located in 

Firehouse Subs

Poke Guys

Poke Guys

Local Leaside

Local Leaside

Patios have been even more popular this year due to covid-19 and the limitations of eating inside. If you want a good one to go to in midtown Toronto, you should definitely try Local Leaside, near Leslie St. and Eglinton Ave E. Local Leaside is one 

Buster’s Sea Cove

Buster’s Sea Cove

I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I find it really difficult to find good lobster in the GTA. Most restaurants in the GTA that serve lobster only have lobster tails, except for Red lobster and Chinese restaurants, but Prince Edward Island is
