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. At first, I was confused, so I had a lot of questions. They set me up with their communications director to chat about the platform. So, here’s the run down.Read More »

Bean Bar | 25th Anniversary

Bean Bar has been a Westdale staple since my high school days. When anyone would mention Westdale restaurants, Bean Bar would be one of the firsts to pop in my head. Their food is great but their dessert selection is what they’re known for. This year is Bean Bar’s 25th anniversary and to celebrate, they’ve made a few changes. A huge mural spans the length of the right wall as an ode to the local community, where they proudly call, home. They’re also expanding their dessert collection by adding local favourites from Donut Monster and Bitten. Soon, they will be revamping their menu – keeping the classics and exploring new dishes.Read More »

Caro-feature

Caro

A few friends and I headed to Ottawa Street to check out Caro, the new Italian restaurant that sprung up in the East end. Right at the corner of Ottawa and Main, this bright restaurant adds to the eclectic collection of shops over there. Sunlight beams in from the two street-side windows of this classically modern space, fantastic lighting for photos. The first thing you’ll notice is the red tiled back splash behind the bar. The huge typographic mural that says “Beloved” and the living wall are also instantย  eye-catchers. You can also find a shelf of sprouts and herbs by the kitchen window soaking up the Vitamin D.Read More »

La Banane

Nestled on the cozy street of Ossington, La Banane is a seafood wonderland hidden behind a simple storefront. You’ll easily spot the restaurant from the poppin’ yellow door and metallic gold sign against an all-blue facade. Inside, you’re transported back into the art deco era of gold furnishings, huge geometric patterns, intricate chandeliers, and glamorous decor.Read More »

CIMA Enoteca

I’ve been waiting for the opening of CIMA since the owners’ of Romano’s mentioned it. Once the Cheese Shoppe on Locke closed down, they jumped at the opportunity. I was ecstatic that the restaurant was going to be Italian because it’s one of my favourites! My love will never die for Romano’s, but damn, when you see the decor and taste the food, you’d make the trip down to Locke Street too.Read More »

Table 34

On the corner of Lakeshore Road and Locust Street, Table 34 is in a prime spot for anyone who wants to explore the Burlington food scene. It has a beautiful view of Lake Ontario, sitting directly across from Spencer Smith Park. There’s also plenty of street parking with free parking on weekends in the nearby parkade, it’s close to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre (perfect for a bite to eat before or after a show), and it stands among some of the best restaurants and shops in town.Read More »

Skip the Dishes + GIVEAWAY

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 »
