Lucky Lin’s ~ 5633 Finch Ave E ~ (416) 298-1388

April Drools Day! Sun is shining; weather is sweet. And #WednesdaysInScarborough continues to be our favourite day of the week. A recent birthday edition saw us hook-up with amigo and local foodie Miguel Grobes over at Lucky Lin’s Restaurant. These guys have been specializing in Guyanese cuisine since 1991. Yet another Scarborough institution to grace…

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…

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…

Zelden’s Deli ~ 1446 Yonge St ~ (647) 347-3474

It is difficult to find a good delicatessen in downtown Toronto.  Full stop.  Of course, there are reasons for this:  traditions have not always trickled down to the next-gen; commercial leases & rents are at an all time high; eating sensibilities have pivoted; grab-and-go sections of the supermarket are flooded with inferior, cost-effective options. 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…
