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 their pizza 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 a

Main’s Mansion

Main’s Mansion

I don’t typically like going out for breakfast because I feel like most of it is food I can make at home myself for less than half the cost, that is until I had breakfast at Main’s Mansion. My husband found out about Main’s Mansion 

Francesca Bakery

Francesca Bakery

Since I’m not big on sweets, I have probably passed by Francesca Bakery thousands of times (my grandma lives nearby) without a second thought. My husband loves sweets though so he kept mentioning that we should go there recently, but every time we wanted to, 

Poke Guys

Poke Guys

Maybe I just wasn’t aware of poke before I went to Hawaii in 2014, but poke bowls seem to be pretty popular in the GTA the last few years. Imagine sashimi on top of rice along with a bunch of amazing toppings and sauces. Sounds
