His Take: Amelio’s Pizza in Montreal’s McGill Ghetto

His Take: Amelio’s Pizza in Montreal’s McGill Ghetto

Tucked away in the McGill Ghetto, Amelio’s is a tightly packed tour de force of unforgettable pizza. I can’t quite put my finger on what makes Amelio’s so good, but I’ll try. The tomato sauce is incredibly smooth, adding a softness to an already melt in your mouth dough that I imagine would be difficult to duplicate. And of course, ... Read More »

His Take: Open Your Wallet at Rodney’s Oyster House

His Take: Open Your Wallet at Rodney’s Oyster House

Rodney’s Oyster House has the ambience, the popularity, and of course, the oysters. Tons of them. I wouldn’t say that I’m an oyster lover… at least not like Jamie. Whenever she slurps one up, her eyes roll in to the back of her head and she kind of shudders in ecstasy. I only wish that I could have that kind of ... Read More »

His Take: Can’t Beat New Sky in Toronto’s Chinatown

His Take: Can’t Beat New Sky in Toronto’s Chinatown

For whatever reason, I solemnly believe that Western Canada has better Chinese food than anything that I’ve been able to find in the east. Jamie and I have looked long and hard for decent Chinese food in Toronto, and it wasn’t easy… but we hit the jackpot. New Sky Restaurant delivers on every single dish. Period. Located in the heart ... Read More »

His Take: All You Can Eat at Yang’s Sushi Bar

His Take: All You Can Eat at Yang’s Sushi Bar

Hidden away in a somewhat commercial looking strip mall just off of Central Parkway West in Mississauga, I have yet to eat better sushi in the GTA than what Yang’s Sushi Bar has to deliver. The best part? They offer all you can eat lunch until 2:30pm for just a little over $15/person. For so, so many reasons, I cannot ... Read More »

His Take: Surf The Icy Side of the Pacific in Tofino, B.C.

His Take: Surf The Icy Side of the Pacific in Tofino, B.C.

For those of you who have thought about giving surfing a try, I’m sure you envisioned yourself coasting toward the shore in the shallow waters of Waikiki. Or perhaps your first introduction to the sport would be in one of the countless hot-spots across Australia. What about this: tightly wrapped in a wetsuit while you fight against the frigid currents ... Read More »

His Take: Holy Chuck

His Take: Holy Chuck

Holy expensive. For 2 burgers, 1 order of fries, and one fountain drink the grand total came to just under $30. Seems a bit crazy if you ask me… but hey, I’m a working man. I ordered the burger named after the franchise itself, “The Holy Chuck,” and I can testify that this is one of the best burgers I’ve ... Read More »

His Take: Burger’s Priest

His Take: Burger’s Priest

If you have ever been to the States (or as they like to call it, America) you will have likely noticed 2 things: 1) There are American flags on everything. 2) They have the best burgers in the world. Period. However, Burger’s Priest, which can be found on the border of Leslieville in Toronto, gives just about any American chain ... Read More »

His Take: Perfect Coconut Shrimp at Buster’s Sea Cove

His Take: Perfect Coconut Shrimp at Buster’s Sea Cove

I have yet to have a bad dish at Buster’s Sea Cove. Correction… I have yet to have a dish at Buster’s Sea Cove that isn’t one of the best things that I have ever tasted. The seafood orzo is to die for, and if you’re feeling up for a bit of a weightier meal try the halibut on a ... Read More »

His Take: Amazing Fine Dining at Frank’s Kitchen in Toronto

His Take: Amazing Fine Dining at Frank’s Kitchen in Toronto

This is quite possibly the most impressive restaurant that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I just can’t praise Frank’s Kitchen enough. Before I get in to the nitty-gritty, I’d just like to throw it out there: I like fine dining. What I don’t like is a restaurant that treats me like I just kicked the owner’s dog ... Read More »
