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.

St. Patrick's Day Hangover Noms

What do Canadians eat after St. Patty’s Day?

Feeding yourself during the morning-after is important but not important enough to prep and cook a healthy meal to cure that hang over. What do you crave? Do you like to order-in, adventure out to a restaurant or continue drinking?

For people who like to stay home and nurse their bodies, Just-Eat.ca noticed that Canadians like to order chow mein, pizza and sushi. We also like to devour poutine, butter chicken, gyros and hot, steaming bowls of pho. I’d say eating a bowl of pho would be the best option because you get delicious noodles and you’re also hydrating yourself with the broth 😀Read More »

Gord’s Place

This sports bar is located right by the municipal buildings in Downtown St. Catharines. There is also plenty of parking on the street right outside the restaurant. Situated in a corner lot, Gord’s Place also has a patio in front of the building. The restaurant is spacious with the bar and dining area on the left and pool tables on the right. We were seated at the high tables in front of the bar with plenty of TVs to distract me from my company.Read More »

Cheeseburger

Burger’s Priest

During my internship in Toronto, I was aware of a lot of food joints around Queen and Spadina. It was actually pretty difficult trying to pick a restaurant for lunch because there were just SO many of them. Every time I passed by this restaurant, there would be a line out the door. Sally and I made out way there a bit before the lunch-rush and beat the line.Read More »

The Burgernator | $14.99

The Burgernator

We happened to stumble upon Kensington Market’s monthly street festival in the summer. Although we were there to check out Cold Tea, we ended up ditching the line and ate street food instead. We made our way from Cold Tea to Seven Lives, then through the street vendors on Augusta to The Burgernator. The door was wide open during a burning summer day, which means… they don’t have air conditioning.Read More »

Earth to Table Bread Bar

Earth to Table is a local restaurant that is conscious of using fresh ingredients from local farmers, great design and creating traditional meals with a new twist. Their philosophy is to “shorten the gap between producers to consumer”, and I think they’ve done a beautiful job. The restaurant is located in Hamilton Downtown, on a beautiful street that is also home to many beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants.Read More »
