You know that saying, if you love something, let it go. If it comes back, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, it was never meant to be. Does this ring true to you? It does to me… but about a sandwich. About 10 years ago, there was this small little lunch counter/wine bar in Little burgundy that I would go to for sandwiches. They had daily/weekly specials that I would get often and they always hit the spot. Life got in the way and I stopped going and kept telling myself I’ll hit them up for a lunch soon, but never did. One day, I pulled up and they disappeared. The place was called McKiernan Luncheonette. [click to continue…]

Get. Focused. IMMEDIATELY. Your favourite restaurant now does BRUNCH! That’s right, your go-to spot for Southern comfort food Dinette Triple Crown, now gives you another reason to brave the cold and line up for the sake of brunch. This has been one of my most favourite restaurants for years and it always on the list for my top recommendations in the city. Have you been? What are you waiting for? If the most authentic Kentucky fried chicken, biscuits, smoked brisket, collard greens and hush puppies aren’t enough to convince you to go, imagine what they can do for brunch. [click to continue…]

I’m in a relationship, a peculiar one. It’s with a seductress, a tramp… and her name is brunch. I like brunch, who doesn’t? This weird weekend ritual where you basically eat breakfast foods at lunch and where having booze with breakfast is ok, but if you do it on a weekday, they say, “Jason, you have a problem.” I recently checked out the new brunch destination in Verdun. Have you ever been to Regine Cafe? The brunch mecca in Rosemount where is’ common to see lineups around the corner on any given day? Well, my friends, Régine café ups the brunch game and goes all in with their Vedun branch, Janine Cafe [click to continue…]

Syrian Specialties in Laval – Restaurant Beroya

I’m often asked for my opinion on restaurants or if I’ve been to a particular spot – I’m always up for a restaurant talk. I like finding out why someone thinks one place is good and not another, or standout menu items that would justify a trek out of the way to cop a certain […]

A Delight to the Senses – Brasserie Pamika

I love spicy food; the spicier the better. But I have my limits. I can get down with a spicy Szechuan spicy poached fish with dried chilis and tongue-numbing peppercorns or a head-sweat inducing lamb vindaloo, but I draw the line at novelty chili pepper eating competitions. I like the flavor of chilis and how […]

Best Banh Mi in Montreal – Sandwicherie Sue

I’ve been asked multiple times on my social media and especially during polls on Instagram; where is the best banh mi in Montreal? And it’s always the usual suspects. The weird little shops that sell random sweet treats and sandwiches or the awkward counters inside Asian grocery stores. You know, the ones with aunties slathering […]
