Love Your Lunch: Liven Up The Noon Hour Break Part 2

The majority of us have almost exactly the same lunch EVERY DAY. In fact, more than a third of office workers in North America (pre-Covid) have eaten a variation of the the same midday repast… for the last nine months.

But how can we break out of our lunchtime auto pilot and indulge in something that will taste good and we’ll actually remember eating?

Barrie has a full menu of midday destinations that will inspire as well satisfy.

This week we’ll offer up a couple of cool destinations to put the zip back in your ziplock.

Liven Up Lunch – Skewers


There is no such thing as too much barbecue. Particularly when said barbecue is an exotic selection bringing the sumptuous tastes of a far away land to your own backyard.

Skewers on Clapperton offers up lunch in a Grilled Korean style. Drizzled in thick, sticky sauces, the eponymous skewer is a popular south Korean street food comprised of chicken and scallions grilled on a stick.

The Bulgogi sandwich, dripping in saucy sweetness

This is an ideal lunch locale because it’s tasty, it’s quick and it’s affordable.

The cozy eatery has a ton of variations on the addictive cuisine (be sure to try the Pulled Pork sandwich on one of your trips) as well as lunch specials for under $10.

It’s a cool joint that easily falls into workplace lore as a lunch place you HAVE to try. One of those unique places that newbies have to make a pilgrimage to before they are really accepted by the office crew. And when they do, they nod in understanding…”now I get why this place gets so many @ mentions”

And if you really want to wow your team, consider bringing everyone in the office to lunch here! Skewers offers catering.

Skewers is open Monday – Saturday 11:00am – 9pm. Find them on Insta and tag them when you dive into one of their dishes!
