East is Eden

Got a hankering for salt beef but can’t hop on a plane to the East Coast? The Newfoundland Store has you covered. This new Parkdale shop stocks specialties like fish cakes, hard bread and tinned meats galore, as well as trinkets for homesick Newfoundlanders and fervent fans of the Rock.

Vegetable Patch

At West Coast transplant Virtuous Pie, creamy cashew mozzarella offsets tangy pesto on the Ultraviolet pizza, and almond parm complements squash and maple on the Harvest pie – combos so tasty you’ll forget they’re entirely plant-based.
