#QueenEastEats

It’s the first day of September, and that means the summer is starting to wind down.  Sigh!  The Toronto Food Blog wanted to take a moment and celebrate some of the great patio eats on the Lower-Eastside of town.  After all, it’s not hard to reason with patio season. Lucky for us, the Riverside &…

Blessed Love Caribbean Market ~ 753A Queen St E ~ (416) 778-5558

Caribana Toronto returned to the 6ix this past weekend after a two-year hiatus.  We felt it only apropos to feature a brand new Caribbean grocery store and takeout spot in the heart of Riverside.  Blessed Love is bringing some much-needed spice to the ‘hood… a welcome addition to the burgeoning lunch circuit. Blessed Love is…

Kathy’s Grill ~ 1158 Kennedy Rd ~ (647) 341-5555

Happy Canada Day, everyone!  It’s burger time, buddy!

Lakeshore Super Submarine ~ 2939 Lake Shore Blvd W ~ (416) 252-4371

  It’s the first day of May!  Happy birthday, Molly!  To celebrate, we’re heading to Lakeshore Super Submarine… a New Toronto institution that’s been cranking out old school classics for close to 50 years. It’s still real easy to get #lunchunder10bucks here.  George Kozaris has manned the shop solo since the ’70s.  His prices, signage,…

Great Fountain Fast Food ~ 8 Glen Watford Dr ~ (416) 291-6688

It’s April Fools’ Day, but where we’re reporting from today is no joke.  We’re coming to you live from deep Scarborough, downtown Agincourt to be exact.   Hidden in the back of the Dynasty Centre mall, Great Fountain Fast Food does things different.  This place is truly one of a kind in the GTA… where it’s #lunchunder10bucks…
