Hooky’s Fish and Chips

893 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G5

The beginning of Hooky’s Fish and Chips started back in 2017 by a couple of locals.  Their decision to open up a fish and chips joint was inspired by their vision of bringing back “Canadian nostalgia.” In addition to serving up their after school favourite dish, customers have the option to grab some x, x, and x.

By combining traditional English style fish and chips with a Canadian modern flair, locals in Toronto are casually getting hooked on Hooky’s.

Bellwoods Brewery

124 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Z5

The Trinity Bellwoods location is a brewpub, and the original bottle shop. The bottle shop opened its doors in 2013, releasing new beers for locals of the 6ix. For all of the beer connoisseurs out there, the bottle shop features “a rotating selection of Bellwoods beer, from light hoppy styles to barrel-aged special releases.” Grab it in a bottle for a brewski later that day, or grab it in a glass and enjoy the environment of a night out.

Skeleton Key, our velvety, spiced imperial stout aged in rum barrels, is ready for its 2018 debut — headed to our retail stores this Saturday, October 13th. The 3 variants are: . . . OG — Rich notes of dark chocolate and caramelized malts are balanced by lively spices, subtle spirit barrel, and vanilla. $16/BTL, limit of 12pp. . . . COFFEE — We take the already delicious barrel aged spiced stout, and then circulate it through Propeller coffee beans for a smooth, cold brew effect. If you have doubts about this pairing, there may not be hope for you. $17/BTL, limit of 4pp. . . . SCOTCH BONNET/DULCE DE LECHE/LACTOSE — Rumoured to be the only beer that could weather the apocalypse. The heat here is evident and obvious, but perfectly balanced by the sweet, smooth, and spiced notes from the supporting roles. $17/BTL, limit of 2pp.

Fresh on Crawford

894 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G3

Fresh started off in 1990 as a travelling juice bar but has transformed into an establishment This one is for the vegetarians out “marginalized vegetarians would feel welcome and catered to, and non-vegetarians could be introduced to vegetarian food that did not fit the old stereotypes of what people at the time thought vegetarian food was – bland, boring and unsatisfying.”

If you find yourself feeling hungry while hanging out in Trinity Bellwoods, Fresh has a location on Crawford that is bound to satisfy your hunger. The menu offers meals like burgers, tacos, soups, salads and more. Today, Fresh has a ton of locations in Toronto and there are even plans to open up two more in Moscow, Russia.
