Every city has its unique places. Restaurants or food shops that can’t be duplicated anywhere else. New York has Katz’s and Russ & Daughters. Legends. New Orleans: Galatoire’s and Commander’s Palace. Now, Chicago has some unique places, such as Topolobampo, Alinea and Arun’s.  Coming up on this week’s show,  we talk with Jenner Tomaska of Next and  Phillip Fos of El Ideas, two chefs in Chicago whom oversee startlingly original concepts, you are unlikely to find in any other city in America.

Canada’s telegenic Prime Minister has been in the news lately, photographed at airports, welcoming Syrian refugees to his country. Much of Canada is colorblind, especially in places like Toronto – North America’s 4th largest city - where there’s not only a huge Chinese immigrant population, supporting two Chinatowns, but also the largest Sri Lankan diaspora anywhere in the world and a Little India along Gerard Street that puts most cities to shame. In fact, according to Statistics Canada, by 2036, nearly half of all Canadians will be immigrants or the children of immigrants. Places like Markham and Scarborough, a good 30 minutes outside of town, along the Northern edge of Lake Ontario host a number of ethnic restaurants.

On this week’s show,  deep-dive into the suburbs of Toronto, where a veritable United Nations of eating exists, in places like Scarborough and Markham. Eating around the world in pretty much one place. All you have to do is bring an appetite, eh?
