We were struggling to think up of some place to eat after work one Saturday. Since we were close to College Street, we ended up trying Hey Meatball! for the first time. While I’m not keen on the meatballs themselves (dense and dry), everything else was pretty good. The polenta was especially nice.

You have to give credit to Lomography. Their toy and plastic cameras may be cheap, but they’re doing a pretty fantastic job with their films. I would highly recommend them. I had a bit of trouble with my first roll, I underestimated the film’s sensitivity to light and overexposed a lot of my shots, which is what I believe led a yellow cast, but so far, so good.
All the pictures below were taken during the past two weeks, when it’s been bright and sunny.

Well, you definitely cannot say that you are without options for quick eats in downtown Toronto. The Kensington Market and Chinatown area is lined with all manner of cheap (and sometimes cheerful) eateries and food vendors, most of which are quite spare in appearance, but fluorescent lighting notwithstanding, the eclectic economy on offer has a charm all its own. In the very least you know you’re paying for the food and not the decor.
Annd…speaking of decor, I recently walked by the new Grand Electric (from the famed ex-Black Hoofers who made pig’s head tacos a thing), it looked totally swank and it might be enough to drag my lazy butt to Parkdale! La Carnita plans on opening up shop soon and the Banh Mi Boys are serving up some good old korean tacos. So, I guess burgers are out and tacos are in for 2012?
(I’d kill for a churro right now.)
