Arribarest Restaurant – Toronto



From its magnificent position high up in the Rogers Centre, Arriba combines dynamic dinning with an incredible vantage into the stadium. From here, you can dine well while enjoying a Blue Jays baseball game. A “window on the game” meal here is served with a side of baseball snippets by enthusiastic wait staff.

 Boogie’s Burgers – Calgary


‘You Gotta Eat Here Canada’


Boogie’s is a long time favorite of Calagary locals – so much that the restaurant was featurind in the “Fans Request” episode of ‘You Gotta East Here Canada’. Kids will be amazed at Boogie’s huge and unique burgers. Some menu selection, like Doug’s “Don’t Fear The Reaper” Burger, arrive at the table complete with four beef patties, four hot dogs, a fried egg, and a pogo stick topper, its big enough to feed the whole family. And be sure to enjoy a “Fat Elvis” bacon milkshake while introducing the kids to the games of your youth on one of Boogie’s vintage video game collection.

The Poutine Tornado (Recipe)

Created by Josh Elkin – Epic Meal Time


Here’s what you need:

  • A Deep Fryer
  • A Metal Spoon
  • 1 large russet potato
  • 1 cup of Quebec cheese curds
  • 1 cup of brown gravy of your choice
  • Deep frying oil

Step 1:
Slice the top and bottom end of the potato. Make sure it’s as even as possible so the potato can stand upright on its own.

Step 2:
Start to scoop out a hole in the center of the smaller end of the potato. Continue to dig with the spoon in a circular motion until you are about 1/2 an inch from the other end of the potato (the bottom)

Step 3:
Using a paring knife, trace a spiral on the outside of the potato. Cut out the spiral exposing the flesh of the potato. At this point you can see the shape of the tornado coming together.

Step 4:
Cut through the potato on two sides of the spiral. You want to cut into the hole you made earlier making sure not to cut too far on either side of the spiral in order to avoid the whole thing collapsing.

Step 5:
Heat your cooking oil to 300 degrees F. Fry the potato for about 4 minutes. Take it out and increase the heat to 400 degrees F. Fry the potato again for 3 minutes.

Step 6:
Fill the hole of the Potato with the cheese curds, then with the gravy until it all starts pouring out the sides of the tornado.
