Chicken Feet & Steph Domet

Chicken feet. My two Newfoundland dogs love them, and they are wonderful snacks for them-lots of glucosamine, great for big dog joints. Every time I pull some out of the freezer, I climb aboard the same train of thought. Sometimes these trains run to strange stations. When I see chicken feet, I think of how... Continue Reading →


back to the blog

So the problem with taking off so much blog time is that all kinds of things happen, and then you don't know where to start... Since I last posted, Mix lost Ray Bear and closed after hobbling along a few more painful weeks, and idiotic comments about Bear and fine dining (or "dinning", as one... Continue Reading →

critic on the critics thursdays

Where to get ice cream is the foodie feature in the Coast. I already have a spot so I turn to HeraldSpurr, who trumpets the goodness of the Lower Deck. I haven't been back to the Lower Deck since I almost died from being trapped on the stickiness of the bathroom floors, after spending a... Continue Reading →

critic on the critics thursdays

HeraldSpurr reviews a golf club restaurant--c'mon Bill, how many of your readers will eat there? ¬†You're not getting lazy are you? Whilst over at the Coast, Craig Pinhey writes about Canada's antiquated border booze laws that restrict consumer choice and put us at the whim of the NSLC. Which kind of fits right in with...

critic on the critics thursdays-part deux

This week, CoastHill does the requisite summer roundup of street food with Bud the Spud starring, and HeraldSpurr goes Vietnamese with Indochine Bahn mi. Meh. (crickets chirping here). Although Spurr does go on the offensive and cuts off the typical response that comes with any ethnic resto review--somebody will write in to let you know... Continue Reading →

critic on the critics thursdays-last week

I missed posting last week but got a few interesting questions so I'm going to revisit. CoastBuote hit the Humani T cafe, with mixed results. I find it interesting that it appears from the article that she only made one trip. I never wrote anything negative unless I had visited a place at least twice,... Continue Reading →

CoastBuote likes the Bicycle Thief (who wouldn't?) and HeraldSpurr visits Two if By Sea for some croissant love and a truck with something different to offer--soup. Soup's on the Move was wedged between Farmer Clem's and Irving on the Bedford Highway, but has moved over to Dartmouth for the summer. And speaking of soup, this... Continue Reading →

Where to this week?

CoastBuote headed to Clayton Park for Monsoon, a place I have no idea about and still don't because the review was ambiguous. HeraldSpurr heads to Berwick and enjoys a meal at the Black Trumpet. The city critic heads to a a generic, middling eatery, the provincial critic wanders to a hole in the wall out... Continue Reading →
