Transparent Kitchen ft. Brux House

There’s a new platform for discovering locally sourced and well-prepared food on the internet. Transparent Kitchen reached out to me to take a look around their site.

Fresh City Farms

There are a l0t of recipe kit delivery services out there nowadays. It’s great because this means there’s a larger selection of recipes to choose from. Fresh City Farms provides the health and environmentally conscious home-cook with organic pre-packed recipes and ready-to-eat-meals delivered to your crib. They come in environmentally friendly, sustainable and re-usable bags to cut a fraction of the packaging waste. We all know it happens when it comes to food delivery, over-packing because they need to keep ingredients from cross-contaminating or making a mess. Fresh City Farm meals are left at your door with ice packs just in case you’re not home, so your food stays fresh.Read More »

FSH & CHP

King William Street is undergoing so many changes and the most recent addition is FSH & CHP. In complete contrast to their brother next door (HAMBRGR), FSH & CHP focuses on the fresh goodies from the ocean. The bright space only fits about 20 people, so expect to wait on busy days. Inside, you’ll find white paneling with cute nautical decor, I super duperly love the Edison light bulbs with rope weaving throughout the chandelier. It might get a bit stuffy while you eat but you can escape to the washroom to cool down (the AC game is strong in there).
