Old School Restaurant

Old School

At the corner of Dundas and Palmerston, Old School is the neighbourhood’s newest BBQ eatery. They are also open 24/7, you just have to go around back to their General Store for take-out. Using local ingredients, the team at Old School cooks everything from scratch. Having culinary experiences from Recess and School Toronto in Liberty Village, Brad Moore’s food will blow your taste buds away. The restaurant’s vibe transports you to the mid-twentieth century era with feel-good music and optimistic mentality. Neon signs and old sayings plaster the walls while funky decor and black/white diner furnishings trickle throughout the restaurant – it’s also a space with refined taste.

Meat Platter 1

Royal Meats

My brother suggested we try this restaurant for my birthday dinner, not only are they a restaurant but they are also butchers! It’s easy to find with plenty of parking spaces. They have a decent indoor dining area and on the patio. We were only inside for a brief moment because we decided to sit on the patio. I also caught a glimpse of their selection of raw meats at the counter. Not only can you enjoy their cooked meats at the restaurant, you can bring home their uncooked meat to enjoy at home! The seats on the patio weren’t the most comfortable. Two flastscreens were mounted outside for entertainment while we waited for our food.Read More »

Electric Mud BBQ

Electric Mud

We made it just in time before having to wait at the bar or the door for a seat. We found a spot on the patio and shared a picnic table with another party of three, cozy. Good thing Torontonians are pretty friendly at popular and  hip-to-the-bone restaurants because we shared a table with the guy behind Taste Toronto – Twitter, Instagram – and his friends! Inside, you’ll find tacky decor from the bar to the hanging signs on the walls. I like that they went all out with the trashy and vintage fixtures, it gives the restaurant character and a chill environment. The food on the other hand, is a complete 180. I also love their motto, ” If you can kill it, we can grill it!”. Another thing to point out, they only accept cash but they have an ATM on the 2nd floor right outside the washrooms.Read More »
