Brunch was created by people who slept in too late but wanted some eggs but burgers were the only thing available. To which I assume they were probably like, “Why not have eggs and a burger… together?” some were probably horrified by the idea of eating eggs at like 12 pm in the afternoon. To which the person most likely said “fuck it” and made some gahdamn great brunch.*
This is my cousin. She’s one year older than me, she lives in Toronto and she is one part #Ta5tebudz (yeah, we created a hashtag check it out on Instagram). Whenever we’re together we always go out to eat, like always, so why not create a hashtag? We usually find restaurants by looking at different posts on Instagram. Whenever we are in Downtown Toronto, we always make it a point to try somewhere new to eat.
So with this post, I’ll start a segment on this blog, which will probably be called “Chef Boycaro” (a little bit of a play on Chef Boyardee amirite??) So I’ll start with an introduction, restaurant name, how to get there (or rather how I got there), and end off with an unbiased and incomprehensive review of the food. So it’s pretty much Yelp, but it’s really nothing like Yelp.
Today, we decided to go to “Wish”. It’s a little restaurant on Yonge Street and Charles Street → get off of at Bloor-Yonge Station if you’re taking the TTC!
It’s always a bit awkward taking an aerial view of your food, but any other perspective, I personally can’t take that well. So I ordered the salmon burger, while my cousin ordered the turkey burger. It’s definitely on the pricier side (I think we paid $20 each) for what I personally think it’s worth, but everything is objective.
So the actually patties of the burgers were thick as hell. The ratio of bottom bun to patty just didn’t match up, and by the end of it all, I pretty much had no bottom bun. (A little bit upsetting, but what can ya do?). The sauce they used for their burger was great! It was the same sauce that they put on the side, I want to say that it was like mayonnaise with some dill in it. The vegetables in the burger were basic, it had lettuce and tomato, I mean I don’t really expect much from vegetables, as long there is at least one, I’m all for it. Lastly, the fries … Fries are … fries, you can’t really mess this one up. And as expected, they were great! Especially with that side sauce.
So I mean it was just okay, nothing really stood out (food-wise) the restaurant itself is beautiful! We got to sit on the patio, and sit on this white-cushioned bench (thank the lord I wasn’t on my period this day), and took some great photos of me and the food. But I mean food-wise it’s a good 2/5 and the restaurant-aesthetic is probably like a 4/5. Giving Wish a grand total of 6/10, on this insignificant scale.
PS. I am in no way even a little bit qualified to be reviewing restaurants or food, I just really like eating it. I am also no way affiliated with any restaurant I am reviewing! If I am I will state otherwise, I just really like taking pictures.
*Notice how the introduction and title of this post was about brunch, we didn’t even end up eating brunch, we got there too late. (Maybe if we were able to eat that french toast or something else this review would’ve been different)
