His Take: Best Break from T-Dot in Muskoka

His Take: Best Break from T-Dot in Muskoka

Only 2-3 hours north of Toronto (depending on traffic) is a spot perfect for water sports, grabbing some sun, escaping the hectic lifestyle of the big smoke, and all around chilling out. Huntsville is the town most central considering the location of the majority of cottages in the region, but these second homes extend throughout the entire Muskoka region. Located ... Read More »

Follow Couple of Yuppies: North American Road Trip

Follow Couple of Yuppies: North American Road Trip

And so it begins: the North American road trip. Toronto has been a great experience for both Jamie and I, but it’s time to turn the page and what better way to do that than setting out on the quintessential North American road trip: the Atlantic to the Pacific. In anticipation of what will be one of the coolest (and ... Read More »

His Take: Crazy Addictive Korean Tapas at Oddseoul on Ossington

His Take: Crazy Addictive Korean Tapas at Oddseoul on Ossington

If Hal from Breaking Bad decided to cook incredible Korean tapas instead of the purest form of meth that he could concoct – that would be just as addictive – he would have opened Oddseoul on Ossington. It is almost impossible to describe how perfectly tasty just about every single dish at Oddseoul is. So I won’t. All that I ... Read More »

His Take: The Best Canadian Themed Restaurant in Toronto at Rock Lobster Food Co.

His Take: The Best Canadian Themed Restaurant in Toronto at Rock Lobster Food Co.

I have very little doubt that Rock Lobster is on the verge of taking Canada by storm. True, it only recently opened it’s second location in Toronto a few short weeks ago. However, taking into consideration that it only opened it’s flagship on Ossington within the past year, it’s a pretty remarkable feat and goes to show just how immensely ... Read More »

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 »

His Take: Toronto’s Only Full English Breakfast at Bristol Yard

His Take: Toronto’s Only Full English Breakfast at Bristol Yard

Although Jamie grew up with beans on toast and breakfasts that were traditionally British, I was a milk and cereal kind of guy for the majority of my life. That changed when I lived in London (UK) for the summer of 2011. I was living in an apartment building approximately five minutes from King Cross Station, and just down the ... Read More »

His Take: $2.50 Sausages at Chicago Butcher Shoppe on Roncesvalles

His Take: $2.50 Sausages at Chicago Butcher Shoppe on Roncesvalles

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: Best Sandwich on Dundas West at Porchetta & Co.

His Take: Best Sandwich on Dundas West at Porchetta & Co.

Porchetta & Co. is a little hole in the wall sandwich shop on Dundas West that offers up some of the tastiest pork buns I’ve ever had. My personal favorite is the house special (how adventurous of me). The pork seems to melt in your mouth and is quite possibly some of the most perfectly spiced red meat I have ... Read More »

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

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 »
