At The BrunchBox (SW 5th, between Oak and Stark), we had the redonkadonk burger ($9), a crazy grilled cheese concoction including four slices of bread, pickles, egg, ham, spam, bacon and condiments. Burp!

And it would be impossible not to tell you about the poutine ($4.50) at Potato Champion. Freshly made fries topped with gravy and fresh cheese curds. Sound filling? It’s because it is.

The best bureks ($4.40) can be found at Ziba’s Pitas (SW 9th and Adler). The owner, Ziba Ljucevic even provided us with a lesson on how she wraps the pitas, taught to her by her Bosnian grandmother.
