UPDATE: The Beaver closed in 2020 after after 14 years on Queen West.
Like everyone else in this city, my husband and I really wanted to try Grand Electric. But at the end of the day, we couldn’t line up for half an hour for pork tacos, no matter how delicious I’m sure they are. So we went to The Beaver, which has been around for awhile. We had lamb burgers and a starter with pear, cambazola and the most flavourful fig preserves that was as good as anything I’ve ever eaten at Canoe. Two people can easily dine here for under $50, which is another lovely bonus about this spot. Rosie 🙂
