I’ve had some excellent eats north of the border, from stellar sushi and Hong Kong–worthy dim sum in Vancouver to an updated Acadian meat pie in Cape Breton and local mussels in Thai coconut curry in Halifax. And, of course, anyone driving across the country learns to love the yellow signs for the ubiquitous Tim Hortons, Canada’s answer to Dunkin’ Donuts.
Now, Timmie drinkers and city adventurers in Toronto can come together at new food and drink blog Taste T.O. Posters include local food writers, chefs, and bloggers, so far all nice and polite in that very Canadian way, without the gossipy snap of American sites like Eater.
Current postings include a listing of locally brewed stouts and Irish-style ales to hoist in honor of St. Paddy’s Day and a roundup of what’s cooking on local blogs, including this deeply creepy recipe for deep-fried rabbit ears. Easter brunch, anyone?
