Food and restaurants Here to stay by Tammy Sproule Kaplan, Downtown Journal Fugaise still going strong after two years Keefer Court – The noodles are back! by Jeremy Iggers, The Rake: Breaking Bread Back about 20 years ago, I wrote an enthusiastic review of the traditional Cantonese cuisine served at the Keefer Court Bakery & Cafe. The little storefront at Cedar and Riverside started as an offshoot of a Toronto Chinese bakery, and the fare reminded me a lot of the food you can find in the restaurants in Toronto’s Spadina Avenue Chinatown: simple and inexpensive rice plates and noodle dishes, plus a good selection of Chinese pastries and buns. Sandwich star by Tricia Cornell, Downtown Journal Let’s not call this a tuna sandwich. Yes, there is tuna involved. And yes, it is between two slices of bread. But there is no mayonnaise, no flabby celery moons, no cans or tins or strange metallic tang. This is no afterthought or tired nod to fish Fridays. This is the tuna confit at Be’wiched, the ambitious new deli in the Warehouse District. NEW IN BLOGS It’s the Economy by Eleanor Arnason, Facts and Fictions NEW IN VOICES Rwanda: A Journey of Empowerment by John Van Hecke, Traveling to Rwanda to field test a human rights-based manual that utilizes theatre to teach human trafficking awareness to children, the author encountered concern that if children were given knowledge of their human rights, then they would challenge authority and harbor a sense of entitlement.
