The Burnt Tongue

If you're a foodie (like me), you will love The Burnt Tongue. I promise you won't be disappointed.

This place is great! They are local and serve fresh seasonal food with ingredients that they buy from the Hamilton Farmers Market. Their soups change daily with a few regular ones in rotation.

Their hamburgers are like old-time grandparents' hamburgers. Their grilled cheeses, fries and soups will never disappoint you.


Peruviano is a hidden gem on Locke St that will leave you with a culinary memory you won't forget. The food is carefully planned by the Executive Chef Gianluca Lulli, rich in both flavor and history.

The experience is expected to last 1.5 to 2 hrs, and it was a terrific experience. The chef came to introduce himself and took the time to ask us about our experience and the quality of the food.

The dinner was delicious and the portions were well-sized. The fried seafood Jalea was crispy, well designed, and perfectly cooked.

The ceviche was tender, and the sweet potato was so flavorful. Everyone must try this beautiful gem of a restaurant.

Democracy* is a super popular vegan restaurant on Locke Street that is a must-visit. They offer sandwiches, bowls, and brunch options and have gluten-free options available.

The place can get crowded during lunchtime, but it's worth the wait. The avocado sandwich was delicious, as was the burrito bowl.

This is a great spot for healthy vegan options and you will not be disappointed. If you're looking for a tasty and satisfying meal that's also good for you, Democracy* is the place to go!

Delirious Burger Co.

The current Google rating, does not do it justice. (Trust me!) Burger was amazing. Perfect size, just the right amount of toppings (perfection!), perfect sear on the meat giving it the perfect flavor, and a soft bun (delicious!).

Fries were done to perfection with a crisp exterior (crispy!) but soft potato inside and the right amount of salt, all thanks to the chef's expertise.

Price, given the quality of the food, was extremely fair. Staff was pleasant, making for an all-around great experience. I will definitely be a return customer.

Sushi Azuki - Locke

The sushi I've had here is some of the best outsides of high-end sushi restaurants. Sushi Azuki uses fresh ingredients and prepares their dishes with care, which shows.

The staff is passionate about what they do, and it's clear they genuinely care about providing an excellent customer experience. I recommend giving this place a try if you're a sushi fan.

Earth to Table is an amazing restaurant with super friendly service. They specialize in pizza but offer a wide variety on the menu.

The pizza crust is just wonderful. Appetizers were absolutely delicious, we had the calamari and muscles.

The portion sizes were large for the apps, and the calamari was very crispy, and the muscles had a lovely wine sauce reduction.

We also tried the Salmon Buddha Bowl and it was amazing, probably some of the best salmon I've had, and all the veggies were fresh and delicious.

I loved the addition of strawberries as well! Will definitely be back. If you're looking for great food, friendly service and a casual atmosphere Earth to Table is the perfect spot!
