Her Take: $3.50 Beer and Unpretentiousness at Gringo Restaurant

Kyle and I stumbled upon Gringo restaurant one rainy Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, with the intention of sitting down for a few tacos and good conversation.

His Take: As Delicious as Cheap Can Get at Pho Hung

His Take: As Delicious as Cheap Can Get at Pho Hung

Pho Hung is the quintessential haven for cheap and incredible Asian food. The Pho is some of the most flavourful I’ve had in Toronto, as well as some of the most generous portions in regards to the noodles and meat that are served up in each bowl. For that alone, I would recommend Pho Hung over any other pho spot ... Read More »

Your Take: Mix and Match at Champor Champor in London

Your Take: Mix and Match at Champor Champor in London

Champor Champor is on my commute to work. Initially, the stickers on the window attracted me. Michelin, Timeout, Yelp, etc: you name it, they got it.

Her Take: Why Rovinj Beats Venice as the Most Romantic Travel Destination

If you ask most people what the most romantic travel destination is from around the world, chances are the answer will be Venice.

Her Take: Satisfy Your Sushi Cravings at Sake Maki in Vancouver

When Kyle and I ate at Sake Maki in Vancouver it happened completely by chance. We originally headed over to Broadway for lunch at The Eatery, another amazing Vancouver sushi hotspot, which happened to be closed.

It’s located in Parkdale, Toronto, an area that used to be rundown, but over the past few years has become transformed into a trendy spot for hip bars and delicious eats.

Her Take: Melt-in-Your-Mouth Burgers at Shake Shack

Her Take: Melt-in-Your-Mouth Burgers at Shake Shack

When it comes to my Best Burgers Ever Eaten list, Shake Shack makes the cut. It’s been too long since I’ve eaten here to make a proper judgement over whether Burger’s Priest is better or not, but I can say the two are very much on par. The buns are soft, the meat is fresh and they both induce the ... Read More »

Her Take: Enter the Wardrobe at Callooh Callay

Her Take: Enter the Wardrobe at Callooh Callay

When Kyle lived in London for a summer, he talked endlessly about this one spot in Shoreditch as if it was an architectural panty remover. He was convinced that if you took a girl here on a first date she would be so impressed it would be distasteful not to return the favor. Source: Shopped and Dropped Source: Katherine Portilla ...
