There's no shortage of smash burgers in this city. Some better than others, but I haven't tasted a bad one yet. The draw to visit here: their perfectly seasoned, nostalgic crinkle cut fries dipped in secret sauce 😋.

Say hello to Toronto's newest square pizza that, get this: is not Detroit style. Expect a thicker version of the blistered, chewy edges we all know and love on the traditional round pies combined with a cheesy, bubbly centre and crisp golden brown bottom that resembles a focaccia. Squares 2.0 coming soon to both locations. PS: don't miss the new house dipping sauces which are 🔥🔥.

I got to enjoy this traditional British 3-course meal on Friday, right as they announced further restrictions in the province. Given the current state of COVID, has sadly decided to shut their doors tomorrow until further notice. However, if you want to get a taste of true comfort with this beef Wellington on mash or this mouthwatering pesto-crusted cod, grab yours tonight and help them sell their final inventory until patios are able to reopen. 🇬🇧🇨🇦

One of the things I miss most about lockdown is a proper BRUNCH. Specifically anything that includes things like poached 🍳, 🥞and 🧇. These cheddar waffles, crispy fried chicken and house smoked salmon really made me feel like I was restaurant brunching, all at a reasonable price. Not to mention having one of the best salads in the city to go with it 👌🏼.

Finally tried out 2020's most talked about burger and while I can't quite confirm it's worth the insane amount of hype it's gotten, it is a really great cheeseburger. Unique from the other smash burgers in the city, this one has a sesame milk bun and your choice of three sauces. One for mustard/pickle lovers, one for ketchup lovers and one for aioli lovers. [Swipe ➡️ to see all three]. My pick: the pickled jalapeño aioli. Possibly even mixed with a little spicy ketchup too. Maybe not worth its hype but mostly definitely worth a visit. Plus, I still need to give the 7oz 'Matty' a go 🍔.
