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 instant  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 »

Send Noodz

Noodz. Where did this word even come from? Well, I’m sure with the slightly immature minds of many people out there, the word would appear sooner or later. I can’t pin point the exact date when it popped into my conversations with my good friend, Ken, but I definitely remember we joked around endlessly about noodz close to half a year to a year ago. We talked about eating noodles a lot, like it turned into a weekly thing. And of course, our minds needed to give it a better, shorter, more appropriate name, noodz.

Heather, from Hamilton Small Fries, and I put together this list of the many places to get handmade noodles in the Hamilton. Though they’re all from different cultures and all turn out different once they’re dished out, they serve a purpose – a carby, comfort food purpose. *Drool* So, where can you find handmade noodz in Hamilton?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 »

The Beverly on Locke

The newest addition to Locket Street in Hamilton is the fancy-pants, breakfast and brunch restaurant called, The Beverly. Some of you might have seen their teaser tweets and posts on social media before opening weekend. They made us curious about their beautifully designed space and brand. Well, it got me lookin’! I went with Jen (@tastehamont) and our SO’s on their second day and dove in with high expectations. With so much detail poured into decor, furniture, branding, and just all the little things, it seemed like they were familiar with the restaurant biz.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 »
