Go Canada!

At work, they passed out doughnuts with red maple leaves on them to celebrate the beginning of the winter Olympics.
I think it's from Tim Hortons. The candy leaves were actually a bit difficult to eat so I ended up scraping them off.

Go Canada!

Gourmet Burger Co.

Gourmet Burger Co. (9 Charles Street, Toronto)

I couldn't think, so I just went for one of their pre-set burgers: spicy cajun burger.
I completed the package with some sweet potato fries and a ginger ale.

I appreciated the toppings and the kick they gave on the burger; however, this resulted in the meat not standing out too much for me. Overall, it's a pleasant burger that's really messy to eat.

The sweet potato fries were crispy enough, but I really enjoyed the large grain salt that was sticking to them.

I stole one of Andrew's onion rings only to find that they were very hot and quite crispy.

The Gourmet Burger Co. isn't bad, but if I'm in that area, I might be more inclined to just head over to Craft Burger... it's debatable. Their prices are comparable. I think Craft Burger wins on meat, but Gourmet Burger wins on toppings and selection. And speed.

Total damage: $11.18.

Mystery Restaurant Food

I have no idea where this was from, but it was good. The salad was tasty, and I quite appreciated the cheese and nuts in it. The rice was okay. The chicken was pretty good and not too dry. The creamy sauce went well with the meat. Everything was pretty good. It's unfortunate that I don't know where this food was from.

Damage: I paid with the time I worked for overtime.
