Zane Caplansky on Where to Eat in Toronto

Ben Jay 16 comments

Since opening in 2008, Caplansky's Deli has almost singlehandedly revived Toronto's Jewish deli scene, largely thanks to owner Zane Caplansky's unique take on smoked meat. But where does Zane go when he's in the mood for something different? Luckily, he was nice enough to share some of his favorite spots in Canada's chief city with us. More

Eat This Now: A Breaded, Deep-Fried, Buffalo Wing-Inspired Hot Dog at Fancy Franks in Toronto

Michael Nusair 6 comments

Is there anything that can't be improved upon by being breaded and deep-fried? If such a food exists, I don't know about it. It was with that in mind, I'm sure, that Toronto hot dog joint Fancy Franks created the Frankie Goes to Buffalo ($7.25), a hot dog/Buffalo wing amalgam that features a deep-fried, panko-breaded wiener topped with Buffalo wing sauce, blue cheese dressing, carrots, celery, and "chicken bacon."

Eat This Now: Kimchi Fries With Pulled Pork From Banh Mi Boys in Toronto, ON

Michael Nusair 6 comments

As the name implies, Banh Mi Boys is known primarily for their take on banh mi sandwiches. However, the best thing on the menu, surprisingly enough, is not a sandwich at all -- it's fries. Specifically, kimchi fries, a decadent creation that finds a healthy portion of French fries topped with pulled pork, mayo, green onions, and of course, kimchi. More

Eat This Now: A Double-Layered Pizza at Pizzeria Via Mercanti in Toronto

Slice Michael Nusair 10 comments

The double-layer pizza is basically what would result from the union between a Margherita pizza and a calzone. It sounds overstuffed—and it kind of is—but in this case I suspect that's the point. More

A Sandwich a Day Michael Nusair 5 comments

Torontonians (or anyone visiting our fair city) take note: Beast serves what has to be the city's most decadently gluttonous sandwich. More

Sweets Jay Friedman Post a comment

Amidst the Chinese bakeries selling wife cakes, pineapple buns, and egg tarts, I was surprised to see that a French patisserie recently opened in Richmond, offering breakfast pastries, lunch service, and even afternoon high tea. More

We Try New Lay's Canada Chips Flavors: Garlic Caesar, Maple Moose, Grilled Cheese, and Perogy

Andrew Wheeler 21 comments

Earlier this year Lay's invited the American public to vote to keep one of three new potato chip flavors. Now Canadians have their own chance to pick a chip, and they've gone one better than their neighbors to the south with four flavors to choose from, all created by members of the public. I sat down with bags of Creamy Garlic Caesar, Perogy Platter, Maple Moose and Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, gorged on carbs, and tried to pick a favorite. More

We Try the McLobster from McDonald's Canada

Fast Food Michael Nusair 8 comments

Lobster from McDonald's just sounds sketchy, doesn't it? When I tweeted my enthusiasm about trying the McLobster, a friend sarcastically replied that I must have a death wish. And I'll admit it: I was skeptical. More

If the promises of pristine wilderness and endless outdoor fun haven't lured you to the Great White North just yet, the new additions to Pizza Hut Canada's menu surely will. The geniuses who brought you the Crown Crust Pizza are at it again, and this time they've dreamed up new exploitations of the slice that will stagger even the most loyal Pizza Hut connoisseur. More

Coffee Methods: Reasons to Love a Longer Espresso Shot

Drinks Liz Clayton 2 comments

For those who've even heard of it on American shores, the Caffe Allongé is, to many, much-maligned. And that's no surprise: US specialty coffee trends have definitively shifted towards the short shot—ristretto, or restricted, espresso pulls that draw a small amount of concentrated espresso with intense flavor. The allongé is considered strange, at best, by those who've embraced the ristretto trend. But to make a short story long...there's more to the allongé than a style mysteriously popular in Quebec.

Sugar Rush: Sapote Cheesecake (and More) at Les 400 Coups, Montreal

Sweets Jay Friedman 1 comment

Far from a customary cheesecake, this creamy, custardy square was slightly nutty, earthy. Pecans and oats offered crunchy contrast to the silken cheesecake, while caramel added sweetness. Best of all was the accompanying pear sorbet, made in a Pacojet and bursting with fruit flavor. More

Last spring, a few friends and I road-tripped to the town of Rigaud, Quebec to shoot a documentary about maple farming. The film we ended up producing, Sucrerie de la Montagne, premiered at the Food Film Festival in New York recently where it won the Audience Choice Award. For those of you who couldn't see it, here's the story in photos. More

Video: How McDonald's Canada Makes French Fries

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 6 comments

In McDonald's Canada's latest "behind the scenes" video answering customers' questions, they show you how their fries are made, from growing the potatoes to salting the fries in the kitchen. They start at one of the farms that supplies their potatoes, then head to the McCain processing plant that turns the potatoes into fries, and end at a McDonald's kitchen to show how much salt each basket of fries is seasoned with More
