Why Is Street Food So Damn Good?

I’ve often wondered, often in the voice of Seinfeld, what is the deal is with street food? It’s usually thrown together in the most unsanitary of shacks, or the shoddiest of carts, held together by duct tape. There’s often some kind of funky ingredient that you’ll no doubt write home about, […]

Feeding Schedule In Toronto: Your Guide To The City’s Best Eats

There Is A Coffee Heaven, And They Call It Vienna

Who would of thought that a bag of questionable pellets, originally thought to be camel dung, could transform a city into a coffee culture hub? Neither did the Viennese, nor myself, until The Toronto Star let me in on the secret. With over 300 coffee shops, Vienna has mastered the art of […]

When In Rome . . . Eating Like The Locals

Street food is always going to be a reflection of a city’s true culture. Not only does it give you a glimpse into a local’s diet, but the vendors offer an amazing ambience as well, even the crusty ones. For example, Torontonians and New Yorkers thrive on “street meat” — […]
