THIS IS BURGER CITY

It’s very clear that the city of Toronto is obsessed with the hamburger. Granted, nothing else really compares to the satisfaction of eating a juicy burg topped with The Option (Priest fans you know wa’ I’m talking about) or a anything off the menu at Holy Chuck but another shop has opened up on Queen West and it has grabbed this Hamburgeller’s attention. During a menu tasting at Parts and Labour in Parkdale yesterday, we were informed of their new burger shop opening that will be some stiff competition to the other hot spots in the area. Under the same management as P&L, this malt shop is set up for success and with a minimalist menu in which they promise to do a few things really, really well. I’m really looking forward to trying this place out when it opens in a couple of days!

DESTINGO

Visited Destingo last night with some old work friends and while the company couldn’t have been beat, the food left a lot to be desired. While the majority of our table indulged in pasta, I opted out for an arrugala pizza (which is my favourite of all time) and grilled calamari and was by no means impressed. I was however full, unlike some of my other friends who received very small portions of pasta (at Destingo’s, apps are a must!) and the waitress was unsure of which pasta was made in house which gave us all a very uneasy feeling of what was to come. I can appreciate that good Italian food is simple and focuses on the beauty of fresh ingredients but my crew had an unanimous decision that this food was borderline bland. Positives- the location and atmosphere could not be beat and had nice serving staff.
No one hated their dinner, but no one loved it, and no ones bill was under $30.
