Hey Roncy! Hey Meatball!


Published:

It hasn’t even been a year since Rodney Bowers opened Hey Meatball! in Little Italy, but we’ve just received word that a second incarnation of the popular food shop is already in the works. Bowers has secured a location at 91 Roncesvalles Ave., where he hopes to open a new Hey Meatball! in about six weeks.

The new location will maintain the same concept as the original — with staples like The Rodfather appearing on the menu — but Bowers says he has some surprises in store that he’s not quite ready to reveal yet. He did say that, at 2,000 square feet, the new Hey Meatball! will be about twice the size as the first one. It’s licensed to seat 100 people.

With a barrage of other eateries having set up shop on the Roncesvalles strip in recent months, it’s now official: if you’re hungry, go west.

The calories and fat are reasonable for a filling meal, but the sodium gives you three quarters of your daily intake in one sitting! Don’t go adding any kimchi fries on the side.

Canada is the world’s leading producer of mustard seeds. So this week, we’re veering west of Ontario to talk about how the yellow/honey/hot mustard plastered all over your late night hotdog (often my midday snack) probably started in the Prairies’ mustard fields.

Inside the world of AAA Bar, purveyor of Toronto’s most authentic Texas-style barbecue

Inside a corrugated tin lean-to near the corner of Gerrard and Broadview, you’ll find one of the most intense barbecue setups in the city. There, four Traeger grills operate nearly non-stop, slowly inundating beef, pork and chicken with oak smoke. Brisket and ribs emerge sheathed in crispy, candy-sweet bark, tinged deep pink beneath the surface.

Joanne Kates reboots her top 100 restaurants list for 2016

We saw this coming — tasty Toronto restos have been going relentlessly downscale for several years. The vast majority of this year’s terrific new restaurants are casual and cheap. They can’t be judged against white tablecloth temples of gastronomy
