Decor: This gem is a little take-out place, nestled between a pub and a pizza joint. Recently, they have opened a cafe where patrons can sit down for a slice and tea, but I have always frequented the original location. There are pies in the hot display and frozen pies...

Decor: This eatery located in a strip mall near heavy industries in Waterloo is a sensory experience. You are first greeted with loud Spanish music, a kaleidoscope of colour on the walls, then a menu that you could not discern half of. Check, this is an authentic Mexic...

Decor: Does the restaurant name sound like dive bar or some shady seafood/pirate-theme joint? Well, those cannot be further from the truth. This is a homely dinner specializing in fish and chips, located in downtown Cambridge in its own building. Barnacle Bill's is oft...

Decor: Located opposite the Kitchener Market on King Street, Golden Hearth Bakery goes almost unnoticed with its black storefront and small signage. They may put a small chalkboard stand on the sidewalk announcing their daily specials, but you can be forgiven for not k...

Decor: I have frequented the previous occupants of this venue - Williamsburg Arms pub and was excited to welcome a change in the neighbourhood. Malt&Barley did not do extensive renovation to the place, so you still have your aged Irish pub feel with lots of wood, a ver...

Another vendor to join the Peddler's Village tent of the St Jacobs Farmers' Market, Jashan-e-Dawat brings bright new Indian flavours to the market's offerings, something I feel has been needed for so long. This simple stall stands quietly with little signage, but often...

Decor: This is a hole in the wall in the popular Campus Court Plaza by the university. During the lunch hour rush, expect to squeeze with other patrons right at the entrance in the very narrow aisle that runs through the restaurant. The place seats maybe 30 at most, bu...

Decor: We dined at Levetto during the warm summer months and sat at the patio, overseeing the field where girls were playing a lacrosse tournament. That to me, felt like the epitome of summer - siting outdoors, watching people do outdoor stuff, all the while having fre...

Decor: This cute restaurant is right downtown Kitchener at ground level. Enter through their double doors and you'll be bathed in Caribbean scenery with their giant posters covering every inch of every wall. The masterpiece is a gorgeous beach poster that's so large yo...

Decor: Fast Food, not your cleanest and fanciest tablecloth setting. You're here for a quick lunch when no one's joining or you left your bento at home. I opt for the sit-in because I never like take-outs - waste of packaging and the food is not served at its best.
