Compare the Fare

Some photo comparisons of dishes I've tried in Toronto...it's too bad that I didn't take pictures of all my ice cream & burrito blitzes! This will just be a casual, fun little drop box.

If I didn't take a picture (I'm quite forgetful!), I won't add it to the comparison list unless if I return or someone kindly takes a picture for me (and I've tried it already, of course)
