1 Block Fried Chicken Diet

I’m back with my fourth Fried Chicken Fest post. This time I’m going hyper-local with my 1 Block Fried Chicken Diet.* The 100 Mile Dietis passé.

Johnny’s, 382 Marion Street

When I started working at St. Philip’s I also started to explore the neighbourhood restaurants. One of the first was the Marion Street Eatery. At the time I noticed there were a couple of other restaurants. Dairy Wip and Johnny’s, close by.

Chicken Chef, Marion Street

Times are changing for me and for St. Philip’s. A few weeks ago at our Annual General Meeting we had a vote and we are now in the process of closing the parish. We are hoping to do this in such a fashion that the majority of the parishioners will remain together. However, it will…
