Anton's - where they feed you until you die.

nton's - famous for their unusually large portions, and as a result, a proportionately long line up every single night, regardless of weather. I can attest to this because I once waited 2 hours in the snow.
This is an example of a short line up, which only extended as far as the restaraunt windows. Often times it extends right past the next shop. The issue has been addressed with the management, and suggestions have been made to expand the restaraunt, but they seem quite content to keep it the current cozy size. A good time to avoid the line up is right before 6PM, when parking just becomes permitted on Hastings.The complimentary bread, to hold your hunger at bay. It's nothing fancy, it's not freshly baked (in fact, it's a little cold - as if right out of the fridge), but it tastes good and comes with a little packet of whipped butter.This is the Tondi Don Vincenzo - It's stuffed with romano cheese and garlic, served in a rich, creamy, garlic parsley sauce - it's awesome.
This is an example of what normal people can generally consume. I ate about 1/3 of it and I was very uncomfortable.....happy, but uncomfortable. It's not often you see customers walk out of the restaraunt without a container. Another one of my favourites is Fusilli de State - it's an avacado cream sauce with shrimp. I will have to go there soon so I can take some pictures of it....the things I do for this blog.  Anthon's leftovers are generally food for about another two meals and still tastes good.

  1. The sad part is that they stopped issuing the trophy pens to the people who finished the dinner portions. We managed to snag a few before the policy change. Think they will sell on eBay as local collectibles?

  2. Vince, you are an amazes me that you can actually fit that much matter in your body. You finished the Keg Size Omega as well right?

    You're not human man.

  3. Good news. Pens are not only back, but come in different colours depending on when you go. Collect the whole set!

    1. Haha, nice to know. When are we all going to Anton's then? You organize.
