Twist Cafe

  Twist Cafe closed about a year or so ago, and was replaced with Twist Bistro. This didn’t revive anything, and Twist Bistro is now also closed. Update to my update. The former Twist location is now the latest location for Shawarma Khan. I haven’t tried the new location, but you can find my review of the original location, at the following link. My last post, on the Ellice Cafe, featured a place that had been one of my regular…Continue readingTwist Cafe

Bodegoes – City Place Downstairs

NB: The Bodegoes location in the Exchange has found a new location. This location, in City Place, is still open and going strong.Bodegoes is the former Line-up and there is  a sign just outside the restaurant explaining why the owners chose to make the name change, as well as on their website.  This has become one of my favourite places to grab lunch if I want to go out and am in a hurry.  Situated on the main floor of…Continue readingBodegoes – City Place Downstairs

Shawarma at Falafel Queen

On my first trip up to Broadway this summer, I took pictures of several food trucks with the intention of visiting them later.  The second truck I visited was the Falafel Queen truck, which serves traditional mid-eastern fare such as falafels and shawarma.  For lunch, I had the Beef Shawarma combo (with fries and drink). Value: All the mains are $6.00 or $7.00, in addition they offer combos of main, samosa or fries, and soft drink for $9.00 and $10.00 respectively. …Continue readingShawarma at Falafel Queen

Little Bones Chicken Wings

Yesterday was my first trip out to the Fringe Festival this year.  As I arrived at the Old Market Square area, I was delighted to discover that Little Bones Chicken Wings had set up shop there as well.  Despite the fact that in general chicken wings are an over-priced item, they are one of my favourite comfort foods. I had heard about this new truck via Twitter and have been looking forward to trying it out ever since.  Yesterday was…Continue readingLittle Bones Chicken Wings
