Not in town right now, but I heard that Burger's Priest opened a new location in downtown Toronto. If any locals haven't given these guys a try yet, you won't be disappointed.

Shameless plug, but for Toronto people I sell $3 ham sandwiches in Trinity-Bellwoods. Coca-cola glazed ham in a soft white bun with butter, dijon mustard, and bread&butter pickles on top. Quite a fine product if I may say so.

Hmm that sounds pretty good/cheap. I might have to check you out when I am back.

 

Also, it really rustles my jimmies that half the ham in the US is sold as "Canadian Bacon." It's not even peameal bacon, it's just ham.

that's weird? I think of America is being pretty on top of things when it comes to ham. Where in the US are you?

SoCal. The ham I got was from Costco, so I am assuming that this misnomer is a nationwide phenomenon.

Weird. I've never noticed this in the states, but I guess I've never been to costco there either. I don't think it's that widespread?

some quick recs, sort of depends on what neighborhood you want to be in.

- Sitka and Spruce (Cap Hill), plus the whole street/building that it is in. Many good things there. I like the pike/pine neighborhood that is nearby if you walk up a few blocks.
- Poppy (cap hill), cap hill people need to contribute more recs, that is not my hood.

- El Gaucho if you want a Sinatra style steakhouse, prepare to leave many dollars behind (belltown)
- shiros is good, low ambiance but good sushi (belltown)

Old Ballard AVe has a million places now, this is where I go mostly now:
- Walrus and Carpenter (arrive really early like 4:30 or put name on list and bar hop nearby for 2 hrs waiting for table)
- Staple and Fancy (next to W&C above)

- How to Cook a Wolf (Queen Anne)

- Basically any Matt Dillon restaurant (the new Bar Sayor in Pioneer Square, for ex) or any Tom Douglas place.

- Food trucks everywhere downtown now.

- Tons of good places near the Market, (I like Maximillien, Campagne, others there too), there are also some places that do not inspire there (the Peruvian place is mediocre but has really nice views from the deck and sort of a nice old Market feel to it, you look down on all the action, overall I would avoid that particular place)

too lazy to add more but there is much more, we eat well here, need something to do when it rains.

Waah just got home from 5am Lakeview poutine in Toronto. Hate walking outdoors to see daylight. Lakeview is not good, but.

I went to Walrus & carpenter when I was in Seattle and thought it was truly fantastic. No one should ever show up at a restaurant at 5:00, just put your name down when you get there & get drinks nearby & eat later on like an adult.

Putin approves.

I went to the Lakeview once. A guy sitting at a table across from me told me "Hi. You know, I went to China once. Your people are very nice people!" 

 

Thanks, bro.

Made an attempt at a DIY-sous vide burger today, and the result?
Well, I didn't season the meat enough when it was going down in the skillet, the skillet wasn't quite hot enough, and I didn't let it get enough crust.
The sous vide-part of the process went easy enough though and with very nice results, sooo juicy icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'll probably make a second attempt next week, may take some pictures then if it turns out nice(r)
