Images From The City | Runnymede Theatre Shoppers Drug Mart

When Shoppers moved into the historic Runnymede Theatre last year after Indigo vacated, I was disappointed because I had so many nice memories of seeing movies at the Runny and I was more okay with it being reincarnated as a bookstore than a drugstore. It is clear the owner of this Shoppers felt pressure to do the space justice. The fact that it used to be a movie theatre (built in 1927) is even more showcased now. I like the montage of vintage photos projected on the screen while you shop. On Bloor at Runnymede, on the south side.

Smoke's Burritorie

Love Smokes Poutinerie? Now there is Smokes Burritorie! And yes, they put poutine IN the burritos. And chicken and waffles. And spaghetti and meatballs. And pad thai. You get the picture... Smoke's burritos are comfort food supreme. There is a location on Adelaide Street now and the Smokes Burritorie food truck is always a welcome sight at local events. Here it is at Great Lakes Brewery for Food Truck Fridays. Rosie :)

Caplansky's Deli | College Street

So glad the deli king is back in business! Zane Caplansky made news in June when he had to get an injunction against his landlord for terminating the restaurant's lease because of failure "to effect repairs not authorized by the landlord." Caplansky said it was completely out of order, fought it, and now he's back making the best deli food in the city. And it's a good thing because Toronto was freaking out. The 6ix needs their smoked meat fix... where is Beyonce supposed to nosh when she's in town? This is the OG location of Caplansky's and the food is great whether you dine in or take it to go, which we did. My little man's favourite are the perfectly fried potato latkes, which did not make it home.

Fat Bastard Burrito | Etobicoke

When you are very hungry, don't feel like cooking, and don't feel like making any more effort than unwrapping a piece of foil, burritos are the way to go. Fat Bastard's huge shrimp burritos are my fave. All the toppings are in here including lo mein noodles. Always dependable and delicious. Rosie :)
