Mr Six Fried Chicken

What the hell is Beijing Fried Chicken? 

When I saw this posted on the wall, I had to stop and go in. Had to. Mr Six Fried Chicken is a new chicken spot located near Midland and Finch. The place is so tiny but they still managed to sneak in a few tables and even a booth. It looks more like a Krispys or another one of those small fried chicken joints.


DaiLo is a high end Chinese fusion restaurant that incorporates a lot of Cantonese dishes but with a bit of a Western Flair. Chef Nick Liu grew up with Hakka parents (much like myself), so a lot of the flavors are familiar to me. It is a highly renowned restaurant that has been on Top restaurant listings and is one of Canada's Top 100 Restaurants of 2017. 

Symposium Cafe

The Symposium Cafe is the standard family restaurant. It's just an old-fashioned type restaurant that serves up something for everyone. It's versatile, but doesn't specifically specialize in anything at all. If a diner had a modernized makeover, it would look like the Symposium Cafe. Nothing wrong with that, but it is what it is. They have a wide variety of selections from breakfast items to sandwiches, burgers, and salads. 

416 Snack Bar

416 Snack Bar is the quintessential hipster bar on by Queen West. It's cool how the chef Adrian started up a food blog touring the city's eats, and has now turned that into a full fledge brick and mortar. The resto itself is rather small on the inside and the bar in the middle takes up most of the space anyways. Dim lighting and the menu is entirely focused on small tapas style plates with a wide ranging menu. 

Chimac Pub & Fried Chicken

Chimac is one of the newer Korean Fried Chicken restaurants to open up in Toronto. The place is much smaller than I thought, but can sit quite a crowd. It still looks rather new and they've got some expensive ass curved TVs scattered about the place as well. Of course, the obligatory Korean music videos were playing on said TVs as well.

Fortune House

Fortune House is a Cantonese restaurant around Huntingwood and Birchmount Rd. The restaurant is located in a shopping plaza with great places like Chris Jerk in the same location. However, this little Canto place is a bit dingy on the outside and just as dingy inside. The decor looks rather old, with specials and menu items sprawled on colored paper along the walls (similar to other cheaper Cantonese joints).

Eating House

Eating House is one of the more popular restaurants in Miami for some time now. A well known establishment that seems to be more focused on their brunch (with some of their brunch items being offered all day). Located in the Gables, this place is consistently packed and reservations are definitely recommended. They offer classic American fare with some little twists here and there.

School Restaurant

School is a sweet little restaurant in Liberty Village that is most renowned for their brunch. It's a cool hip place that offers up a wide variety of dishes like chicken and waffles, pancakes, and french toast. Their pancakes are supposedly one of the best in all of Toronto, so we had to check it out.

Yin Ji Chang Fen

Yin Ji Chang Fen is a new HK street food restaurant located in the same plaza as the T&T. They serve up late night eats that include some dim sum items as well. Famous for their rice noodle rolls, they also serve congee, curry fish balls, and sticky rice on the menu.

Shinobu Sushi

One of the better sushi spots you'll find in the GTA.Shinobu Sushi is a tiny quaint little restaurant on Yonge near Lawrence. On this tiny strip of street, you'll find a place that seats about 20 people serving up very good sushi. You have to make reservations if you expect to get seating at the place, especially during the weekends.

Kim Tao Hot Pot

Kim Tao is an AYCE Hot pot restaurant in Richmond Hill. The place itself is HUGE. They've got so many damn tables, I would find it hard to believe if they ever were too busy to get you a table. Though not the cleanest place in the world, there aren't many hot pot restaurants that are.

Las Delicias

Great little Colombian spot in the corner of this tiny plaza. Despite how it looks (which is what most of Miami looks to me anyways), the does there is worth the visit. Place is tiny bit clean and the people are friendly.

Magic Noodle

Magic Noodle and places like it are spreading like wildfire and rightfully so! This small little restaurant is popular for their hand pulled noodles, mostly doused in soup. The place inside is tiny and they do a good job of getting as many people in there as possible, but lineups do tend to be frequent despite being open 24 hours a day.

Congee Queen - Centerpoint Mall

Congee Queen has another location and this one is just as good as the others. This one is a bit hard to find but it is located on the South side of Centrepoint Mall by the No Frills. The place itself is rather large and can accompany any size table from just the two of you to a larger group of 10+. The service here is actually on the friendlier side and I've always thought they were nicer than most Chinese restaurants.

Hi Tea Calgary

Hi Tea is a tiny bubble tea shop in the corner of a small plaza right by the bubble tea behemoth that is Chatime. Despite their largest competitor next door, they still remain somewhat busy because of the main intersection with the bus stop bordering Chinatown in Calgary.

Dragon Chinese Restaurant

The Dragon Chinese restaurant is a Chinese restaurant located on top of another restaurant by the Calgary Bow. The place itself offers up some Chinese food away from Chinatown, but the dim sum is the reason we wanted to go. Not sure how dim sum in Calgary is, but this place was not very good.

Charcut Roast House

Charcut is another one of those best restaurants in Canada, according to 100Best. The restaurant itself is located and attached to Hotel Germain right at the foot of the Calgary Tower, so it's not hard to find. The interior is very nice and much of the patrons reflect that with their dress code. The menu offers up a variety of local options like bison, elk, duck, and such.

Hibiki Japanese Cuisine

Hibiki Sushi is a nice little sushi restaurant located in Markham on Hwy 7, close to Unionville. The interior of the restaurant is very nice, and the sushi bar is present as soon as you walk in, though there are way more tables that can accompany larger groups as well.
