This is the third article in my Toronto Is Awesome series. I would love your comments, thoughts and future suggestions for this series.
Mike Boon, otherwise known as Toronto Mike, is undoubtedly the number one fan of Toronto. His blog, Toronto Mike, is one of the oldest and most read personal blogs in Toronto. And his podcast, Toronto Mike’d regularly features stories about his life in the city and the city itself.
I thought of doing an introductory post for this series but thought otherwise. However, let me start off this post with an introduction of sorts.
No matter where you live, you’ve heard of our mayor here in Toronto: Rob Ford. He’s a polarizing figure to say the least. And most likely not someone people would be proud to call their mayor. Unless one happens to be part of “Ford Nation“. Now, I’m not a supporter of his politics or of him. Never have been. And I wish he would leave office or be kicked out.
To say that Toronto needs saving, or that we’re the butt of all comedians jokes, or that our amazing city is suffering irreversible damage is just plain lazy and wrong. Toronto has been and will always be the Brett Hart of cities: The best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be.
Toronto, in my opinion is what cities around the world want to be when they grow up.
So, for the rest of this year (hopefully everyday) I will write a quick blog post about why Toronto is awesome.
Clue #1: It has nothing to do with who our Mayor is or is not.
Hakka Restaurants! I LOVE hakka food. And Toronto is a city blessed with some amazing hakka restaurants.
My favourite is China Cottage in Scarborough. I love the variety of dishes and the flavour that stays no matter how spicy the food is. My favourite is the Hakka Fish. Order it. You will not be disappointed.
