Food Notes for December 31, 2012

I hope you all had a restful Christmas, and are all geared up for the New Year. Isn’t it crazy how time flies? At least the weather is co-operating for our transition into 2013. May it be a good year for you! On to this week’s food notes:

  • Working between Christmas and New Year’s, I resolved to reward myself a bit by not packing brown bag lunches. Instead, I used it as an excuse to warm up with pho.

  1. Two notes:

    1) Huffington Post crowd-sourced their “Best New Restaurants in Canada 2012” list by looking at peer-review sites like Chowhound and Yelp and also local bloggers and newspapers. Unfortunately, you forgot to mention Urbanspoon, given the Huff’s article was inspired by Urbanspoon’s 2012 Canadian list (link in the article). On that note, I give more credibility to Urbanspoon than Yelp, given the controversies surrounding the Yelp brand.

    2) Delux Burger is set to open a third location on January 3rd, this time in Terwillegar, in the same complex as Famoso. Check this tweet:

  2. Hi Sharon,

    I’ve been trying to rack my brain for the name of a sake bar that just opened in the south side – any ideas? 🙂 Thanks!

  3. You’re right – addition made. And thanks for the heads up about the third Delux Burger. In the coming year, the suburbs will likely see aggressive expansion, of not only national chains, but local ones as well.
