CITY NIGHT LIGHTS. ✨
There’s something about the buzz and bright lights in #Toronto at night that never ceases to amaze. One of our favourite hubs of the city is @ydsquare. With some great views, shops, restaurants and more. But this summer it’s also hosted some amazing festivals, concerts, parades and more. There’s always something going on at #ydsquare !
What’s your favourite hub in the city? Let us know in the comments below. 👇🏽 #HumpDay

✨Oysters, Korean style beef sashimi in soy sauce dressing and a fresh yolk on top, and deep fried tiger shrimp with sweet chilli mayo and shrimp crackers!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of our favourite places, it was a little gem before it got so packed 😵 there’s always a wait unless you get lucky, but surprisingly buck-a-shuck Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s are less packed than the weekend! Fun fact, we used to come here weekly 😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Definitely worth it, Kusshi oysters are our favorite! Super buttery and meaty. Fanny bay is slightly more refreshing and less buttery. Belon oysters are tied for first in our tastebuds hearts👅💛 French Kiss oysters taste like the sea, but also tart at the same time, quite similar to the Malpeque’s. The huge Denman Island Oysters were super salty but the meat was so thick and sweet 🤤 save the best for last! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• honestly, the quickest way to my heart is through a bowl of mac 🧀 thanks to vegan genius @nomyourself (aka chef mary mattern) for this creamy, delicious recipe. i usually like to schmancy up my mac bowls + this time i did it with green onion, some ‘facon’ i picked up at the @wellingtonfarmersmarket (made by #stonesoup i believe?) + a dilly ranch i made for sandwiches the other day. oh mama •
How delicious do these Tri Colour sandwiches look?! Hope all my fellow indian brothers and sisters back home and around the world had an inspiring and fun filled Independence Day!! .

Fried chicken has been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was a little kid. When I stumbled upon this place, my eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store! Chicken Squared puts a spin on fast food chicken that is quite unique. They have a variety of choices that blends into South Asian flavours as well, all from wraps, gyros, fried & roasted chicken, salads, wings, burgers & more, all at very reasonable prices! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🥞🍗 1 - 6 Strip Chicken & Waffles - $10.75
Chicken & waffles are known to be an A grade comfort food, & this isn't any different! These guys flavour their chicken with their special blend of herbs & spices, but it doesn't have the rich, guilty feeling that a chicken & waffles usually leaves behind.
🍿 2 - Mac 'N' Cheese Bites- $5.75
You don't realize how limited emojis are until you start to venture. These are crispy & cheesy bites of goodness that are a MUST try!
🍗 3 - Chicken Chargha - $17.95
This guy stuck out on the menu for me. I'm familiar with this type of chicken being made in South Asia & while it wasn't fried, it did offer a unique taste of South Asian masala & lime! This chicken is traditionally drier, but when mixed with their Imli Chili sauce, gives a very unique flavour to your tastebuds! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍟 4 - Spicy Fries - $5.75
Yummy fries with masala that keep your taste buds on its toes! A great way to spice up your meal!

🥪 1 - Spit Roasted Porchetta - $9
Tender, seasoned, spit roasted porchetta slices between a soft, warm bun with crazy flavours like garlic aioli, mustard, & sautéed onions. The meat to bun ratio is just insane & the flavours all blend in perfect harmony.
🥪 2 - Southern Fried Buttermilk Chicken - $9
This one caught me off guard. Crispy buttermilk chicken with some delicious garlic aioli & your choice of hot sauce! I've never had a moist yet crispy chicken sandwich before this one, but not only do they make it, but it's down right phenomenal!!
🥪 3 - Shrimp Po'boy - $10
I have two words for this sandwich. Spicy. Remoulade. The chefs back there have created a topping so balanced in its taste that this almost didn't taste like a Po'boy at all, yet it still blew me away! Shrimp lovers, this one is a must try!!
🥪 4 - Chevapi - $10
This sandwich perfect. Period. Chevapi is a type of skinless sausage, found traditionally in the countries of southeastern Europe & the Balkan states. You can find them at some European meat stores, but no one I know sells a ready to go Chevapi sandwich in this city!! This baby for me is the main event. Minced beef & lamb sausages freshly grilled for about 20 minutes with onions, roasted red pepper ajvar spread & Kajmak cheese. Add a little hot sauce for an extra kick & you're halfway to an out of body experience that's second to none! You Have to try this! Tip: Call ahead for this one.
