    Qila Restaurant torn down

    No Comments

    The other day I noticed that the Qila Restaurant at the corner of Victoria Ave and Magdalen St was torn down. I don’t know why, and I don’t recall seeing any signs. Just one day I noticed it was gone.

    The first image shows what it looked like (a screenshot from Google Maps). The other two are pictures of what the lot is now. It has been turned into a parking lot.

    Happy Wanderer for sale


    I noticed this yesterday when I was out. The Happy Wanderer, a German-themed restaurant on Stanley Avenue is for sale. This could have been for sale for a while, I don’t know. My best guess is it was back in June or July, based on the dates on recent reviews.

    I’ve never been, but the reviews I’ve read online were always very complimentary. It appears to be closed. A reviewer on Google Maps said that they were “closed by receivers”, as does the sign (“court appointed receiver”).
