In this week's episode, we explore two great Mexican restaurants that are great at different things: Mexican Lindo and Jimmy Guaco's.  Check 'em out, and also look for Alexander Keith's new cider at the LCBO.

Our apologies to our listeners for giving them a rerun this week, but we didn't get a chance to record.  So, since podbean seems to have lost a lot of our earlier episodes, this is the one that started it all!  Picture lovingly ripped off of Black Bear's facebook site:

This week's episode is a day early for Halloween!  We discuss the delicious food at a reputedly haunted pub, Halloween's origins and different foods associated with it as well as other holidays that offer food to the dead.  More pictures to come!

    We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

    Spencer came up to visit us the week of St. Patrick's. He's a fan of the podcast so there were a bunch of places he wanted to go, and as if we were going to deny him! The three of us checked out Rolling Pot (no pics, sorry - just check out our previous pictures and superimpose Spencer's jovial face into the scenes of your choice), The Rainbow, Viva Burritos, Go Believe Sushi, Teddy's and picked up pepperettes at the Three Little Pigs. Having him as a guest host and honourary Fat Chick was a blast! Hope you enjoy the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.

    In this week's episode, we discuss a new burrito place in Oshawa called Viva Burritos.  Great food, old school customer service, affordable and quick!  Also, we pine for our favourite Morgantown Mexican Restaurant: Rio Grande III.

    Towards the end of the episode, we incorrectly identified Chi-chi's downfall - it was not e. coli in the romaine or tainted salsa - it was Hepatitis A from the green onions.  Well, the moral of the story is, you can never trust a green onion cause you don't know where it's been.
