His Take: Vietnamese Sandwiches on the Cheap at Banh Mi Boys

Located just below Toronto’s chinatown on the corner of Queen Street and Spadina, Banh Mi Boys serves up some of the most delicious vietnamese sandwiches for less than $8 that you will ever find. Smothered in toppings including the zesty house mayo while served on a fresh baguette, the banh mi (roughly 6 inches of sandwich) is adorned with options ... Read More »

His Take: The Best Brunch in Leslieville at Joy Bistro

His Take: The Best Brunch in Leslieville at Joy Bistro

Joy Bistro is a popular little spot in Leslieville that serves up an impressive brunch menu with dishes averaging around $11-$13. Yes, you’re going to drop a few extra bucks here in comparison with your hangover curing bacon and eggs at the local greasy spoon. Justifiably so, as this is anything but. After much humming and hawing, I decided to ... Read More »

His Take: A Few Pints Over Your Studies at Tequila Bookworm in Toronto

His Take: A Few Pints Over Your Studies at Tequila Bookworm in Toronto

As I write this article, I am sipping a pint and enjoying the breeze making it’s way through the garage door styled window at the front of the bar/cafe and am feeling far more confident in my creativity and abilities as a writer than coffee ever made me feel.  I wish I had discovered this whole pint-over-some-work thing 6 years ...

His Take: A Meal Just Like Mom Used to Make at Butler’s Pantry in Toronto

His Take: A Meal Just Like Mom Used to Make at Butler’s Pantry in Toronto

Whenever Jamie and I decide to grab a meal at Butler’s Pantry on Roncesvalles in Toronto’s west end, I feel as if I’ve ventured home for a night. None of this “condo living” garbage, no career to worry about. Just incredibly delicious and healthy food in a small and cozy space that would remind anyone of their childhood kitchen. Once ...

His Take: The Busiest and Best Ramen House in Toronto at Kinton Ramen

His Take: The Busiest and Best Ramen House in Toronto at Kinton Ramen

Anyone who lives in Toronto would know that Pho is some of the most popular food on the market at the moment. It’s cheap, it’s delicious, and it’s everywhere. However, I would bet in the next couple of years that Japanese style ramen houses will be giving pho restaurants a good run for their money. Ramen is just as cheap, ... Read More »

His Take: $5 Beer, Kangaroo Sausage and Duck Fat Fries on Monday at WVRST

His Take: $5 Beer, Kangaroo Sausage and Duck Fat Fries on Monday at WVRST

Before I get to food, I have to mention that WVRST has one of the absolute best beer selections that we have found in Toronto. With local classics like the Muskoka, as well as past favorites of mine from Montreal like the Dieu Du Ciel, topped off with the oldest brand of beer in the world, Weihenstephaner (best damn beer ...

His Take: The Best Pop-Up Shop Lunch in T-Dot at Come and Get It

His Take: The Best Pop-Up Shop Lunch in T-Dot at Come and Get It

It seemed like an eternity in which Jamie had been raving about this mystical pop-up shop called Come and Get It that one day would disappear forever. After a few beers, she would talk about Come and Get It like an obsessed teenager talks about a crush. In fact, I’m pretty sure that she was secretly exchanging texts with the ... Read More »

His Take: $2.50 Drinks for Thursday Happy Hour at Wide Open

His Take: $2.50 Drinks for Thursday Happy Hour at Wide Open

When it comes to hole in the walls, Toronto’s popular after work hangout Wide Open has to be one of my all time favorites. The fact that the place is likely no more than 10 feet wide (HA, THE  NAME IS A JOKE, GET IT?) and people are constantly jostling for position to either sit down, order a drink, or ... Read More »

His Take: Brunch and Caesars at School in Toronto’s Liberty Village

His Take: Brunch and Caesars at School in Toronto’s Liberty Village

Every Canadian knows that there is absolutely no better way to cure your hangover than with a caesar and some eggs. Anyone who disagrees has never tried a Caesar, or has never met a Canadian. Unless the Canadian that you met was one of those “I’m not really in to sports, I’m more of a theater person” types. They don’t ... Read More »

His Take: Bellwoods Brewery and the Best Garage-Made Beer in Town

His Take: Bellwoods Brewery and the Best Garage-Made Beer in Town

Everything about Bellwoods Brewery wreaks cool. The huge outdoor patio in the summer complete with picnic benches, a classic white picket fence, and outdoor BBQ on which sausages are being tossed up create the impression that you’re chilling in your best friend’s back yard. The interior, an auto garage turned micro-brewery, gives off the vibe of a super chic urban ... Read More »
