Just a quick update on some great spots in the Hamilton area that I've been to recently.
Ya Man! Caribbean Cusine - This place is great; Dahl soup, pholaries and Roti were all excellent. I had the goat and chicken roti. Jerk Chicken salad is also great as it comes with fresh mango.
La Luna Express - I've been to both the Upper James and Centennial locations and both are excellent. Great salads, wraps and other Lebanese foods. Highly recommend.
Jimmy Gringo's in Westdale near McMaster and Ole Gourmet on Locke both serve a great burrito and I would recommend both.
Papagayo on King Street was fairly good. Cute place, slow service with decent Mexican food.
Pastacino on Upper James has excellent Lasagna, Cannelloni, Manicotti and Rotolo. All made in house. Service is a bit concerning sometimes, but the food is great and the atmosphere is a pure "pasta house".
Claudio's on Jackson (near La Cantina and Lopresti's) was a great experience also. Service is top notch and the shrimp bisque is excellent.
As I've always said, Na Roma Pizza Bar on Locke has incredible pizza. Soups and Salads are great as well. I've tried most pizza places in the Hamilton, Ancaster, Dundas area and Na Roma is my favourite right now.
For thin crust pizza - Bread Bar on Locke, Spasso in Stoney Creek and Fortino's on Centennial all serve great thin crust, charred and blistered pizza.
Next on my list is MEX-I-CAN and WASS.
