Open/Closed: February 1-7, 2018


A quieter week still delivers a bounty of options, including an array of Asian fare and lots of poutine.

Here’s the very latest:


The seafood boil craze continues with the launch of Boil Plus (815 Britannia Rd. W.) in Mississauga. Expect the usual array of seafood – lobster, crawfish, king crab and snow crab legs, Dungeness crab  - alongside ramen.

Cheese Garden debuts their second location in Scarborough (3250 Midland Ave.) tomorrow.

The Dessert Kitchen has over 30 locations worldwide (their Kitty Coffee, a foam cat floating in coffee, probably has something to do with it). Go see what all the fuss is about at 73 Harbord St., and enjoy 20% off during their soft opening.

The Duke family of pubs has a new addition - Duke of Cornwall (400 University Ave.).

Signature dishes including a Surf & Turf Burger and Panko Crispy Eggplant Fries await you at Mississauga’s Kantene (1059 Dundas St. W.).

Smoke’s Poutinerie has landed at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Terminal 3 Arrivals. In a food truck.  Smoke’s first mobile food truck-style eatery likely will not be the last
