Just the other day I found myself cycling through Leslieville and thought to pop into Dan and Kristin Donovan’s sustainable Fishmongers Hooked located at 888 Queen Street East, Toronto.
A few months back we interviewed Dan about the reasons behind his decision to become a Fishmonger and the underlying philosophies of Hooked.
So many months have flown by since Hooked’s opening that we felt it was high time that we revisited the store and had a poke around.
Having always been rather partial to taking photographs of fish in various Fishmongers around the world, I thought I’d take a few snaps of what was on the slab on that particular day, Wednesday the 27th of July.
Nota bene: According to the staff the selection changes daily, so I’d strongly advise you to call ahead if you are looking for anything in particular, or have your heart/stomach set on that big piece of Swordfish!
