Fox Burger – CBC Review

Fox Burger is putting out the type of burgers you think about for days after. Why? What's so special about these burgers? If you know how Nate Box rolls (with food), you won't be surprised as to why I think these burgers are the bomb. Read my web article for all the...

Bianco – CBC Review

Bianco – CBC Review

Kelowna Then and Now – AMA Magazine

It's -28C right now and as I look out my office window, my mind takes me to the Okanagan: hot summer days, sapphire blue water and endless fruit orchards. My first visit to the area was in 1967 to visit my grandparents who'd moved that year to Rutland which was its...

June’s Delicatessen – CBC Review

If you missed my CBC review of June's Delicatessen on November 15, here are some links to get you up to speed.  Just to clarify, Nate Box's partner in this operation is Mike Forgie, not "Scorgie" as I said on the radio. That's a different Mike, so I apologize. You can...

Filistix – CBC Review

Filistix – CBC Review

On November 1, I reviewed the brick and mortar location of Filistix. Cousins Ariel del Rosario and Roel Canafranca have garnered a loyal following since they first served meat on skewers from their Filistix food truck in 2008. At the new space on 100 Avenue, they...

Woodshed Burgers – CBC Review
