Guy Fieri and his penchant for greasy food have been making the Toronto rounds on the past few episodes of his Food Network hit Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Toronto Life has been keeping tabs on his visits to eateries such as Caplansky's and Hey Meatball on College Street, The Ace in Roncesvalles, and the Lakeview on Dundas Street West.
Here are some of the best quotes featured in the summaries:
"If you’re a fan of delis, and I’m talking old-school, Jewish-style deli's, and you’re cruising through Toronto, Canada, don't worry, they got a joint for ya. It’s right here, at Caplansky's," Fieri says about the deli that's been featured previously in the New York Times, Maxim, and various other publications. He wasn't as sold on the Canadian pallet of maple bacon though, saying it was not as he expected.
Christmas came early though when he took a bike out of the Ace's Christmas burger, which consists of a turkey patty, stuffing, and cranberry compote.
"If you took your whole Thanksgiving dinner, wadded it up into a ball, put a little crisp on the outside of it, that’s what this tastes like," he said.
The festivities continued with the Lakeview's freedom cheese bread, "It’s always a party when you have Havarti!" Fieri said.
Perhaps his greatest love though came in the form of a sandwich. "You’ll have to pry this out of my dead hands," he said of Hey Meatball.
