  1. I honestly never went to the Intercontinental Toronto Centre for the food. That is my go to property in Toronto for its location, service, amenities, and price.

  2. Can people flying UA from MIA domestically access the lounge? Is it landside? I’m not familiar with the terminal layout in MIA

  3. I LOL’d at this paragraph: “And the CFIA also found that a menu item labelled “BC Organic Salmon” did not live up to its name. “The letters ‘BC’ listed on the restaurant menu descriptions can mislead consumers to believe that the salmon is from British Columbia,” the inspector stated after finding no evidence the salmon was from the province. Instead, the inspector noted that the “B/C” on the Toronto supplier invoice may refer to an acronym for “Boned & Cut or Boned & Cleaned.”

    Anyway, when I go to Downtown Toronto, I stress dining at the nearby Chinatown & ride the metro to Greektown on Danforth Ave. for excellent cuisine at down-to-earth prices!
