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

The pizza had all the hallmarks of a striking Napoletean pie: a blistered, slightly speckled crust made with naturally leavened Italian Caputo dopio zero flour, topped with a translucent, vermillion layer of San Marzano tomato sauce.

Photograph courtesy of thewx4.com Despite being subjected to the familiar "don't play with your food" parental instruction throughout my childhood, as an adult I can't help but succumb to a little makeshift breakfast sandwich action. The most popular (and easiest to assemble), has got to be the irresistible pancake-bacon combo, or you can get a little more serious, as in the case of the waffle sandwich I posted about here last September. It's always fun to create your own monstrosity, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for the chef who saves you (and by that I mean my wife) from the embarrassment of a self-made sandwich at the table. Such is the case with the seared smoked... More
