Why does the west coast have superior hot dog stands?
Don’t get me wrong, I love the hot dog stands in Toronto, even in all their grimy condiments container glory. They make great snacks in a pinch, but I would definitely be more inclined to eat more street meat if Japadogs were in town. Continue reading Japadog (Street Stall)→
Waterloo is full of AYCE (all you can eat) Japanese restaurants, the majority of which serve primarily sushi. However, if you’re willing to spend a little more to get better quality food, definitely check out Kinkaku Izakaya, located across Kitchener City Hall.
Evidently there was also a sushi place in the same plaza with the same name that is now closed, which confused me greatly when trying to look up the hours for this place. I’m still unsure as if that was the case, but Koi Sakana Ramen is definitely open and a great place for ramen in the GTA.
I heard about Tomo Sushi nearly 3 years ago from a co-worker; she lived nearby and said it was one of her favourite places for sushi, and everyone she had brought there, regardless of what they thought of sushi before, loved it. Being a little out of the way from me, I never had the opportunity to try it until now.
If you love more adventurous, unique pasta, Shiso Tree Cafe is the place to go. There isn’t quite anything like this in the GTA and their lunch specials are very reasonably-priced if you’re a bit unsure about the premise.
