A Place for Foodies

Here are a few of my favourite local shops, and make sure that you stroll down Clarke Road to see the many mom and pop stores that are hidden gems.

If you love Korean BBQ, you must check out Nice to Meet you BBQ.  This place has become a go-to destination for grill enthusiasts and anyone looking for a fun place to dine. Items range from chicken skins to lamb skewers and spicy clams.



Don’t forget to stop at BjornBar Baker, the hype is worth it.  A second location opened up in the area and residents are flocking to try the yummy pastries. Don’t forget to stop in next time you are in the area.
