As a maritime rescue, I am fussy about my lobster. This stuff was the mushy canned type but out here the good stuff is hard to get. My kid however loved his fried chicken on a waffle.

Very nice restaurant in a hip neighbourhood. Ordered lobster poutine and tried other dishes from my friends' plates. Everything was so delicious! Also the price was reasonable for the quality and flavour. The ambiance inside and customer service was amazing too.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
