          Hey! Keep quiet about the Ambassador; it's Richmond Hill's secret.

          And let's face it - Johnny's burgers are crap, but they are the best crap I ever ate. I used to work at a gas station across the street, so I must have had over 1,000 meals there. I remember, after graduating from university and moving to Ottawa, coming back to Johnny's after five years. John took one look at me, and said "Hey Texaco - cheeseburger?"

          I know many will disagree, but I still love the Pad Thai from Thai Shan on Eglinton. That and their green mango salad have made many a dinner for us.
