Boston: Max & Dylan’s


Location: 15 West Street Boston http://www.maxanddylans.com/ Running errands one day in Boston, it was inevitable that our hunger pangs would set in. We were able to scope out a couple of places finally deciding upon Max & Dylan’s. It may have had something to do with the quaint bookstore beside it, The Brattle Book Shop, … Continue reading

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

TRAVEL: Paris: McDonald’s


Don’t judge me. We did it in India, so we had to do it Paris. Eat at a McDonald’s, that is. And it was très magnifique! Gotta love this guy who posed for the picture! Oh we also had a Kronenbourg 1664 beer, but it wasn’t cold enough.

TRAVEL: Boston: Tory Row


Location: 3 Brattle Street Cambridge, MA http://www.toryrow.us YOU GUYS, I’VE FOUND MY FAVOURITE FRENCH TOAST! It’s at Tory Row, in Cambridge, Massachussettes! At first I was a little dismayed by it’s small portion size, making sharing all the more difficult. But with the blueberry jam and the New England maple syrup, and for only $7, … Continue reading

KFC’s Double Down


Location: 466 Queen Street West, Toronto Having received varied reactions to me trying KFC’s DOUBLE DOWN burger, ranging from “Eeewwww” to the actually curious, “How WAS it?”, I have to tell you, I LOVED it! Yes, it’s bacon and cheese sandwiched between  two juicy (and incredibly salty) chicken burgers, and at 540 calories, 30 g of fat, and … Continue reading

Czehoski Restaurant


Location: 678 Queen St W., Toronto http://www.czehoski.com With its unpronounceable (and untypeable) name and rusty, industrial name plate hanging over its door, Czchzhecioski is all things cool and nonchalant.  Exactly what Queen West is about. The downstairs already filled, we were seated upstairs, where it was cose (new word) with a roaring fireplace and a … Continue reading

Product: Pita Break


I was recently sent a large box filled with  Pita Break products: a variety of One Bun pitas and Lavash “Flax and Honey” crackers. Now, it’s no secret that I like to eat, so it was almost instantaneous that I broke into the Lavash cracker box!  It just so happened that I’d just met up … Continue reading

Frugal Fare #6: The Banknote


Location: 663 King Street West, Toronto The Banknote is one of those work-lunch and after-work dinner/drinks places serving up burger & beer type meals in a bank setting.  Yes, aptly named The Banknote, as it used to a bank, they still have the ol’ vault in the back and teller booths.  If that ambiance doesn’t suit you, there’s always their cosy patio on … Continue reading

It seems to always be packed in there and one day I will try it. Not too long ago, we dined at … Continue reading

Boston Pizza


Location: 2458 Queen St E.,Brampton I’d never been to a Boston Pizza before but have seen it many times from driving across four lanes. It is the quintessential surburban restaurant. Oddly, we didn’t care for pizza that day and opted for sandwiches and burgers. Menu described it as follows: Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Breaded chicken breast … Continue reading
