Eating out: Favourite greasy spoon dinner

Chicken sandwich
People often ask me “After a long day of cooking, do you go home and cook too? The answer is Yes! I love to cook and especially for my friends and family. But the answer is also… no. Sometimes I just don’t have the time or the energy to cook again when I get home. Last night was one of those nights, I had laundry to do and so I thought I’d grab a quick dinner in between the washer and dryer loads. This required resorting to a delicious (not-so-healthy) dinner. Don’t worry, the restaurant I ate at won’t mind the not-so-healthy reference at all — It’s called Dangerous Dan’s (at Broadview and Queen in Toronto). Their menu includes a variety of specialties including The Coronary Burger. That is a bit too much for me so I had The Willis Sandwich with grilled chicken, bacon, sauteed mushrooms and tomato. Yum!
