His Take: Eating on the Cheap in Beijing

His Take: Eating on the Cheap in Beijing

When travelling on a tight budget, as Jamie and I are, you learn to appreciate the spots that are easy on your wallet. As I write this, we are currently resting from a day out in Shanghai, a city that serves up some absolutely incredible food… if you can afford it. Quite frankly, we cannot.

The longer that I live in Toronto, the more I come to realize that I do not like anywhere in the city half as much as I love Roncesvalles Avenue. The street is littered with antique shops, bakeries, butcher shops, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream and frozen yogurt spots, fruit markets… and not to mention, it’s a ten minute walk from ...

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: Ridiculously Cheap Sushi, Lunch Special at Sake Maki

His Take: Ridiculously Cheap Sushi, Lunch Special at Sake Maki

Although the list of things to love about Vancouver is endless, any local would agree that the city’s sushi should be right at the top. After spending 4 years of University in Montreal with buddies that almost entirely hailed from Van City, I became enamored with their stories of “Vancouver sushi” which eventually pushed the food to legend status in ...
