Sorry to hear you had a bad experience.

Yes, I agree. The burger leaves you wanting more. I don't know what it is. As for the fries - they're intentionally like that.

NIMBY Burgers tries to emulate In & Out Burger with their entire menu. While they do a good job of it, it's nowhere near the same. I don't fault you for giving it a 6.5/10 but I'm a little more generous having tried it last year, giving it a solid 8/10 for effort.

Mamma's Pizza on Yonge St. Toronto, ON

We just had delivery. I had two X-large pizza. One Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza and a Spicy Chicken Bruschetta. We also had two orders of wings and a 2L pop.

6/10

Pretty good pizza(then again, pizza is pizza...) but the chicken was soggy and was just swimming in the sauce. Price came to $88 tax in + $10 tip = $98 => Yes, for delivery pizza... Like O.M.G.!!!

Cactus Club

BBQ Duck Clubhouse with a Caesar Salad. Delicious like usual. It's a chain restaurant but I really think Cactus has some really solid dishes because of Feenie.
9/10
i get the duck clubhouse every time!

I tried going to Hoi An across the street only to be disappointed - They close on Tuesdays!

Anyway...

Lam Hoa Quan Restaurant
9/10

Love their broth, noodles and beef. Definitely different and a solid meal. I understand their style is Northern Vietnamese? Nonetheless, delicious.

The Famous Warehouse on Granville

Had the Works burger + 10 salt and pepper wings (15 cent wing Wednesdays!)

For everything being 4.95 on the menu, the burger was pretty good. Great place to eat if you're looking for good eats outside of McDonalds for something that's about the same price. As for 15 cent wings, they were good, but not great.

Kinda wish I knew the place was cash/credit only first though (Didn't have cash on me, had to use the ATM inside that dinged me). Good service overall, even though it was only 2 PM, it was a little busy.

8.5/10

Because I'm a fatass and will probably be diggy by the end of summer... Some pictures of Brado's from today.

Picture 1 is their poutine menu. There is more than just that but for price references, there it is.

Picture 2 are the box sizes. Again, for reference.

Picture 3 is the Large Regular Poutine with the free can of pop you get when you order it.

Picture 4 is again the Large Regular Poutine.

Agave off 200th and 86th ish..

I went during lunch time. It wasn't busy at all.
Customer service was really good. Greeted by a cute waitress.
The place itself is really modern. Great place to meet for lunch/business meeting.
We sat down at the bar end. Has a few tvs, really nice decor.

The food was really good. The prices were even better.
Given how posh the place looked I was expecting $20+ a meal.
I got a steak burrito for $12 one of the most expensive meals on the lunch menu.
The steak was great and it came with fried potatos on the side.
Either head chef or manager greeted some visitors and spoke Spanish directly to them. The food reflected in the authenticity.
I'd totally eat there again.
