  • Melanie Pringle's Restaurants
    The fully homemade menu at Melanie Pringles fills bellies with diner favourites in a bright dining room with touches that hark back to the '50s and '60s. Burgers ($8.99+) and wraps ($10.99+) fill essential stomach spaces, and fall-off-the-bone smokehouse ribs ($12.99 for a half rack, $18.99 for a full rack) make fingers regret not having their own mouths. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., enrich the midday desert with multifarious lunch options, such as the barbecue meatloaf sandwich ($9.99) or chicken souvlaki skewer ($8.99). Sunday brunch, served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., contrasts sweet options such as stuffed french toast ($7.99) with savouries that include the breakfast pizza with cheddar mashed potatoes, bacon, veggies, and a fried egg ($8.99). Shakes, and ice-cream drinks ply thirsts earned from energetic chewing or from watching the coolest guy in school struggle to work his tabletop jukebox with the tap of a fist.

  • Mexico Lindo
    Mexico Lindo Oshawa's culinary wizards conjure an authentic Mexican menu, replete with offerings inspired by the flavours of Mexico City.

Burritos emerge from the deep fryer disguised as crispy chimichangas ($9.95), and chefs roll corn tortillas around the diner's choice of fillings and drizzle the resulting enchiladas with a delectable sauce ($9.95). Diners can sample the eatery's homebrewed Mexico Lindo ale, sip margaritas, or confuse blindfolded taste buds with scoops of deep-fried ice cream ($6).

  • Dandyline Pictures
    Roger Metivier photographed his first event??his sister's wedding??when he was just 11 years old, using nothing more than a plastic 35mm camera. He hasn't stopped taking pictures since, and even used his talents to win accolades such as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Award. Today, the Canadian-born photographer and filmmaker travels the world under the name of his company, Dandyline Pictures. He uses a sometimes classical, sometimes playful approach to composition in shooting subjects as far-ranging as plates of food, sweeping natural landscapes, and people disguised as food. He also passes on his knowledge in a private photography school. During group workshops and private classes, Metivier teaches basic manual photography techniques??such as how to use ISO and aperture to one's advantage??as well as compositional techniques suited to styles ranging from portrait to restaurant photography. Meanwhile, he also works with a team of skilled artists and technicians to provide video production, animation, graphic design, and other services.

  • Golden Griddle Family Restaurants
    Since 1964, the culinary teams at Golden Griddle Family Restaurants have diligently crafted a massive menu of homestyle classics. They fill three-egg omelettes with spinach and grilled mushrooms, incorporate fruity fillings into crepes, and whip up pancakes from one of three types of batter, including 10-grain. When lunch and dinner roll around, they shift their focus to hearty feasts of English-style fish and chips and slow-cooked pot roast smothered in beef gravy. Since it's free of trans fats, that gravy is part of Golden Griddle's health-conscious stock of ingredients, which also includes diet syrups and reduced-fat cream. While their elders order off the main menu, kids ages 10 and under can select from their very own menu, which showcases meals such as spaghetti and grilled cheese. In addition, each child receives a complementary toy and crayons, which are perfect for entering Golden Griddle's colouring contest or for penning a newspaper op-ed in favour of outlawing broccoli.

  • Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar - Oshawa
    Steak and wine?it's an easy pairing. But deciding which ones to pair at Wildfire Steakhouse & Wine Bar isn't quite that simple. The steak menu is exhaustive, featuring 10 cuts that range from an 8-ounce filet to a table-busting 56-ounce tomahawk. Furthermore, there are eight preparation styles. Whether guests choose blue or well done, the Canadian Certified Angus beef (aged for at least 40 days in-house) is always warmed over Quebec maple charcoal. The wine list at the Zagat-rated restaurant makes for some difficult decisions as well. It's been honored with Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence every year since 2007, with the publication noting the strength of the French, Italian, and Australian selections. There are upwards of 6,000 bottles in Wildfire's inventory, which guests can see displayed in the glass walls throughout the dining rooms.
