Racking up lamb @ Brothers Food & Wine

When’s the last time you had a real-deal gourmet meal on top of a subway station, bro? Don’t get me wrong, the Jamaican patties at Bathurst are legit, but that ain’t nothing compared to Brothers: Food & Wine, this funkalicious little joint right on top of Bay Station. This place is so low-key, they don’t […]

Slammin’ smoked lamb at Barque, bro!!!

Now, Barque Smokehouse is already one of my favourite BBQ joints in this city. Their Smoker’s Choice platter is enough food to feel a small army of Flavourtown Warriors, Bro-veheart!

I’m all fired up for these lamb chops!

So, we’re hanging out at Fired Up, this funky house of grilled meat way out in Port Credit. Dude, this place is part steakhouse, part BBQ joint, with steaks, ribs, chicken, salmon, burgers…and like a couple pasta dishes or something. Now, the cowboy ribeye caught my eye, and I heard their ribs are bomb diggity […]

Alberta Lamb: It’s the other red meat!

Now, when you enter Alberta, there’s this great big sign that says Welcome to Beef Country…or at least there will be after Jason Kenney gets elected. Growing up in Calgary, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll be eating steak, but one thing I’d never heard of before was Alberta lamb. I thought all lambs came from […]
