Their spices and flavours will make it a fantastic experience for everyone wanting to try something different. They have flavours you will fall in love with and a nice variety of meals.

Get Skewered!!!!

If you’re looking for a tasty meal then go get Skewered!!!

Food on a stick is a pretty popular choice for cooking over a grill in the summertime! But what do you do if you’re in the mood for skewers and have no time to cook? A fantastic place to get this tasty style of food is at a small, local restaurant called Skewers!! We met with the Restaurant owner Luke, and had a chance to speak with him about this fantastic restaurant.

Food in Korea is commonly sold by street vendors. They wanted to bring that experience here to Barrie! It’s one of the few places in town where you will find this style of food. With their great prices, deals, and amazing quality, you will not be disappointed. Skewers is located in the heart of Barrie, at 9 Clapperton St.

They focus on take out, and they are on Skip the dishes, Uber Eats, Door Dash. If you’re wondering what to try, one of the favourites is the fried chicken. They also have these unique cups that hold your drink, and either popcorn chicken or fried calamari if you’re looking for a quick snack. They make all their own sauces! “We do everything fresh & do all the cooking right in front of our customers.” Says Luke

Bohemia is closed till further notice. It’s a global pandemic, baby, so closing for a while is the least we can do to stop this thing. We’ll share hugs and stories, tears and laughter when the skies are blue again. In the meantime, during this state of emergency, we’re gonna practise social distancing, embrace self care, (online @blissanngreenyoga) eat lots of comfort food (i.e. cheese from @jadorefinecheese and bread from @homesteadbread), make our homes cozy (with @ourhousebarrie online, and @inhabit_interiors) read books (from @bbcbookstore), wear glamorous but comfortable lounge wear (from @janetkempladiesfashion and @zuzufashionboutiquebarrie), order takeout (from @grilledcheesesocialeatery, @lazytulipcafe, @valiantseatery, @swirleezbarrie, and more) and probably drink too much wine (until the LCBO closes…. then we’ll do a juice cleanse @ripejuicery) And then the second after we get the all clear, we’ll come roaring back! So: au revoir, not good bye, and Keep on SANCTIFYING THE ORDINARY every day! (p.s. teasing about the LCBO. The government would never take away our wine)
