Mama’s Boys Burgers ~ 480 Danforth Rd (Scarborough) ~ 416-269-6262

Wednesdays in Scarborough has quickly become our favorite day of the week.  This is due, in large part, to visiting places like Mama’s Boys Burgers.  We just love family-run holes-in-the-wall where you can get #lunchunder10bucks with ease.  This is that kinda place.  This is our kinda place.  A Scarborough institution for the past decade, Mama…

Taste of T&T ~ 145 Kingston Road East, Ajax ~ (905) 426-3352

One of our New Year’s resolutions is to focus more on the positive.  So if there’s any silver lining to this whole COVID situation, 2020 did see a remarkable uptick in two of the Toronto Food Blog’s favourite things:  playing golf and eating take out.  Both evolved as ways to support local small business while…

As…

Kim Kim ~ 1188 Kennedy Rd ~ (416) 757-8300

Kim Kim Restaurant is a family-run Hakka joint in Scarborough trying to keep things afloat with elevated takeout & delivery offerings.  I’m told their family recipes originated wayback in Meizjou, China, perfected here in the GTA b/w/o Kolkata, India.  They boast quite a large menu of Hakka classics plus some harder-to-find specialties, making this one…

Bach Yen ~ 738 Gerrard St E ~ (647) 347-8160

Working in East Chinatown for the past ten years, feel like I’ve tried most of the restaurants in the ‘hood.  There’s this one spot a little further east that’s always eluded me.  Bach Yen (738 Gerrard St E) was put in my radar last week by Suresh Doss, and it’s a real winner.  Have been…
