Sundays tend to be errand days for us and this rare non-rainy March day was no different. Throw in a run to Costco and Sophie needing to visit the dog park; it wasn’t until almost 2:30pm before we managed to get something to eat (I’m not counting the quick hot dog at Costco).

While we’ve been to Romer’s Burger Bar on numerous occasions, we’ve never actually tried stopping by for brunch… and for the life of me, I’m not sure why.
It’s been a little over a year since Cakeaters opened up their little shop in Champlain Heights so I’m assuming their business is going okay. As I mentioned on my last post, this particular location was a revolving door for different shops that have come and gone over the years so it’s nice that there’s a little stability for now.

As I mentioned on my last blog entry for Bon Bon Bakery, I mentioned their famous St. Honore cake. While their cakes are pretty good, it’s difficult (not impossible) to polish a whole cake off by yourself. So the next best thing is to grab a dozen of their tasty pastries for $15.
When you hear the name “Duffin’s Donuts”, the first thing that would normally come to mind is donuts… but you would be missing out on the fact that they also serve Chinese food and a vast number of sandwiches/subs. Read the rest of this entry
I first noticed a new restaurant along Kingsway a couple of months ago. At the time, I wasn’t sure what kind of food they served – all I could tell was that it seemed bright and clean and had an inconspicuous name… Max’s Restaurant. I figured it was either a new burger joint or some kind of fast food outlet. Read the rest of this entry
We first tried Mezbaan Fine Indian Fusion over a year ago (a little bit before we started our food blog) but haven’t had the chance to revisit until just recently. Like a lot of other Indian restaurants, they do offer a buffet – but I’ve been trying to steer clear of East Indian buffets lately because the sauces tend to be quite rich and the rice and naan fill you up so quickly.

You know, with a name like “Yu Kee” they better make some pretty tasty food. When I first saw the name of this place, my immediate thoughts were “yucky?”… seriously? Okay, I know that’s not how you pronounce the name – but in either case, the food is actually really good.
Yu Kee is located in the Killarney Centre mini mall (the same complex as Columbus Restaurant and Wally’s Burgers) and operates as both a BBQ kitchen (where you can purchase various cuts of BBQ meat like duck, chicken, and pork) and a full-fledged restaurant.
We’ve been getting flyers in the mail for Roman Ristorante (located on Kingsway) for a long time but we’ve never been able to try them out. The first time we tried coming here, they wound up being closed but we made sure we kept it in mind to try eventually. The restaurant is pretty small – at most 7 tables and, when we stopped by for take-out one night, a bit chilly.
Years ago, when I used to work on East 41st Ave, the staff would occassionally eat at Neighbour’s Restaurant on Victoria and 49th… I think we even had a branch xmas party there one year and I recall that the food tasted pretty good. The restaurant is very much like the name implies – friendly, cozy and comforting food. Read the rest of this entry
