South St. Burger presents Burger Behaviour

7 Jul, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

Burgers: something about them is so classic. Burgers for me remind me of my youth where my mom would pan-fry up some burgs and serve them up to make my rumbling tummy happy. Now a days, burgers can be a fancy treat. Case in point, South St. Burger Co. I went to visit them recently and taste-tested their Nacho Burger loaded up with cheddar cheese, guacamole, tomato salsa, lettuce and jalapeño sour cream – one of their new signature burgers….

Dundas Park Kitchen Bringing Comfort Food Home

8 Aug, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

Over the past few months, a stretch of new restaurants have opened along Dundas West that have been offering healthy, grab and go choices.  One such place is the Dundas Park Kitchen, which nestled right beside the Belljar Cafe. I first came into contact with owners Alex Tso and Melanie Harris after they offered up an old espresso machine (on Facebook) from the old Portuguese restaurant they were refurbishing to make their own.  My partner ended up obtaining the machine…

8 Aug, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

The end of summer in Toronto is always marked by one thing: the CNE.

Each year, food vendor offerings have grown larger in size and more ridiculous in nature. Here are the five most outrageous, heart-attack inducing foods to try at the CNE this summer: All Nutella Everything. So…

Blue Goose Pure Foods Introduce Common Good

7 Jul, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

Originally posted to Ama’s weekly food column over on Toronto is Awesome.  The Harbourfront has always been a bit of a dead-zone for affordable, quick and delicious food without succumbing to the like of Pizza Pizza or Quizno’s. But some competition has moved onto the block that should keep diners on their toes. Welcome, Common Goods. The latest in food options introduced by the Harbourfront, Common Goods is a cluster of beautiful shipping pods (similar to those found at 707…

photos by yuli scheidt Originally posted on Toronto Is Awsome Foodies in the know have been salivating over The Stop Community Food Centre two day Night Market and for good reason too.  With the Stop transforming the alleyway behind Honest Ed’s into a magical food and wine (beer/spirits) getaway, it’s no wonder tickets sold out in 2 hours pre-show!  At the $50/all you can eat and drink price point, it raised $80,000 before foodies even stepped up to some of…

Rock Lobster Opens 2nd Location on Queen St. W

6 Jun, 2013  |  by Yuli Scheidt

photo by yuli scheidt   Queen Street West just hasn’t been the same since Loblaws and the condos started rolling in. The biggest indication of that was when late night food staple, Shanghai Cowgirl announced that it would be shuttering its doors for good. But all good things must come to an end and in its place “all things Canadian, seafood and booze” are stepping in. If you can’t figure out what it might be, look no further than the…
