There is a new food delivery kid in town! Similar to JustEat.ca and UberEats, Skip the Dishes is an app that will bring you food from nearby restaurants. But unlike the other apps, it has special features like filtering by distance, time, fee, and score. The most helpful tabs are the fees and the scores. Delivery fees range from free to $5 and when I’m feeling like a cheap-fuck, I’ll sort the restaurants by fee.Read More »
Everybody loves carbs, especially when they’re 2-bite pockets of cheese and potatoes. Yes, I’m talking about pierogies. Peter & Pat’s Pierogies sent over a 4-pounder bag of their bacon and cheddar goodies made with natural ingredients and pure love. Their 60-year-old family tradition just launched in Canada after touring American Costco‘s for about 20 years, hooray!Read More »
The annual event is back in Hamilton for its 4th year in a row. Feast for St. Joseph’s is a month-long fundraising event between February 19th to March 19th. Six local Hamilton restaurants are participating and 10% of your food sale is being donated to St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation.
Tucked away in a Burlington strip mall off of Guelph Line, Barra Fion is honestly a hidden gem. Judging from the outside, I didn’t expect the food or the space to be anywhere near what I experienced that day! So, for real, don’t judge a book by its cover. Read More »
You might’ve seen the new kid on the block at the corner of King and Hess in Hamilton. Floor to ceiling windows, graffiti art along the side, and a pair of big red doors, yep, that’s Coop Wicked Chicken. Maybe you’ve also seen their vulgar, yet hilarious social media content and digital advertising on the internet. Well, it definitely caught my eye.Read More »
Matsuri Sushi in Dundas has been highly recommended by my friend, Sid, for as long as I’ve known him and I finally went to check it out. Surprisingly, I haven’t explored the sushi bars in Hamilton but I’ve heard good things about Joya, and Kampai (the only one I’ve visited). Of course, we have the usual all-you-can-eat joints like Spring Sushi, August 8, Sapporo, and Tatemono but I’d rather indulge in fresh fish than mediocre sushi. Not hating on AYCE restaurants, I still hit them up every once in a while because it’s such a good deal.Read More »
The stars aligned and I finally found an occasion (my birthday) to visit the infamous Aberdeen Tavern of Hamilton. They’ve been on my Places-to-Eat-in-Hamilton list since I started it a few years ago. It was also a last minute decision to even go out to celebrate because my plans for the evening fell through and my mom suggested we celebrate early. I scrambled to find some restaurants that were open past 9pm – thank you, Aberdeen Tavern, for having late nights.Read More »
Who knew this sweet shoppe served brunch! Instead of hitting up another downtown Hamilton spot, I met up with my usual brunch crew in Dundas. We planned on eating at Detour but we found out they had a limited menu, so we skipped over to Jax Sweet Shoppe. A cute little diner in a collonial-looking building right on King Street. The space is small with enough seating for 20 people. It’s a straight-up diner with glossy steel tables, round and colourful chairs, walls filled with photographs, neon lights, and a retro CocaCola cooler with bottled Coke. Along the left are ice cream coolers and cases full of cookies, tarts, and cakes!Read More »
These recipes are for those who get bored of the same old tomato sauce. I still love tomato sauce but sometimes I like to change it up and take my taste buds on an adventure.
Barilla figured out the perfect pasta-to-water ratio to cook without draining! All I had to do was cook a box of pasta in 3 cups of cold water for 10 minutes, or until all the water is gone. And BAM, done. Just needed to stir a couple times and that’s it. Toss in you sauces or seasoning and you’re good to go.
