Hero Burger


Location: 1480 Major Mackenzie Drive East Richmond Hill, ON http://www.heroburgers.com I like to jokingly think it’s me saying “hello” to the burger.  “Herroo Burger!” Having eaten at Hero Burger once before at the Queen Street location, I wasn’t blown out of the water.  It was almost good bye burger.  But seeing it again in Richmond … Continue reading

Location: 117, Rte Principale E RR 2, Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, QC J0X 2W0, 819-456-4545 Not only does Carlo do pizza, and amazingly well (the veggie one we got was chock-full of tasty veggies and not very greasy), he does the best poutine I’ve ever tasted in Quebec!  Mighty squishy curds and a not-too-salty gravy that’s just the right consistency.  The pan fried tilapia was amazing … Continue reading
