A Taste of Ylfa Helgadóttir’s Iceland

11 Nov, 2015  |  by Geo Peck

Every year, an oft forgotten country sends out its feelers to the rest of the world, pleading “I’m here! I’m here! Look at all my awesome things!” And that tiny, awesome country is Iceland. It also happens to be my favorite place, but I really do think you should try to find that out for yourself by going for a visit. If you can’t make it there to meet Iceland in person, there is always The Taste of Iceland to…

Meet Us At The Red Tomato

Fat Girl Food Squad visit The Red Tomato

Toronto is all about pizza. It seems that every month there’s a new place in town claiming that its pizza recipe is the only one you need in your life. The options are endless and why not? All you need is a quality crust, flavourful sauce, and cheese and you can do just about anything with it. When Ama and I were invited to try some new additions to the menu at The Red Tomato (a long time staple of…

Toronto is treated to the New Boulud

Yuli Scheidt for Fat Girl Food Squad - the new Boulud - lobster

In June of this year, Toronto’s own Café Boulud closed its doors to the public. The restaurant located inside the Four Seasons was at the forefront of many rumours in Toronto’s food world: why had the restaurant closed, would it be re-opening and how did namesake Daniel Boulud feel about this. After a whirlwind two month renovation including a brand-new interior and re-tooled food program, Café Boulud re-opened in September to much fan fare. The New Boulud, as it was…

Best Eats from #TwilightTuesdays at Drake One Fifty

9 Sep, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

  Now that everyone is a foodie, it’s no surprise that our brothers and sisters of Bay Street are expecting interesting, innovative and offbeat eats in their backyard. And they have just that with the Drake One Fifty’s #TwilightTuesdays. Hosted in their parkette on York Street between Richmond and Adelaide, the Drake On Fifty not only serves up their own fare and libations, but invites other Finanical District pals to join in the weekly summer block party.   It’s a…

Ritual App Helps You Skip Lines & Make Up Your Mind Already

8 Aug, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

I am lucky in that I work in a part of Toronto which is the oasis to the food desert some of my pals work in. I have endless options and that can be the problem sometimes. I’m indecisive. About everything. Half my lunch hour is spent thinking on what I want and where to go and the other half is spent in line or waiting for it. So by the time I have food I am shoving it into…

Best of Toronto Vegan Food & Drink Festival

8 Aug, 2015  |  by Megan Stulberg

words by Megan Stulberg  |  photos by Tyler Teal You know that line in the movie The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep’s all “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” That sums up how I feel, for the most part, about the meat-heavy menus at the street festivals that take over Toronto’s busiest streets during the summer months. I have never attended the overly hyped Taste of Danforth. I mean, I did end up at Taste of  Little Italy this year while…

#PintxosTO: A Celebration of Tapas is the Snacks Block Party You’ve Been Dreaming Of

The weather might be unseasonably cool, but Toronto is still ready for those hazy summer nights spent on patios and side streets. With all the things still set to happen in this city before Fall really shows its colours you have to make the most of it and spend your time wisely. I can’t think of a better way to spend time than sipping on txakoli (the drier the white wine the closer to heaven) and tasting pintxos from some of the…

Your New Favourite Fast Casual Italian Eatery is Levetto

FGFS Levetto On The Table

This summer, my boyfriend has decided, is the season he learns to make really, really good pizza. And while I don’t mind being his co-taste tester, and having pizza 5 nights a week I do mind the 600°F it requires to make a great crust in our tiny AC-less apartment. On a night when I needed a break from staring at the heat lines rising from the kitchen and silently cursing him for not picking up this hobby  in the…

Summerlicious at Aria Ristorante

7 Jul, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

Have you heard? This year’s Summerlicious has been extended for an extra week in celebration of the Pan Am Games. For diners around the city, Summerlicious is one of those times where we can go in and experience beautiful and luxurious restaurants we wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to try otherwise. With pre-fixe menu prices at affordable prices, it’s hard not to want to try everywhere in this city.  Trust me: I’ve done upwards of 5 resos sometimes.  This city is…

What We Love About The Stop Night Market

5 May, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of going to The Stop’s Night Market twice. An event that sells out in minutes, it takes a strategy to get there. It’s something you need to Squad Up for. There has to be someone on top of refreshing their browser to get the tickets, someone to go over the lay of the land and map out the plan of attack. If a vendor runs out because your team wasn’t en pointe you only have…
