Ambitious Realty: Hamilton Restaurant Favourites

January 18, 2021

If there’s one thing the Ambitious Team has in common (other than a passion for real estate, of course), it’s that we all LOVE to enjoy the amazing food scene present in Hamilton.

Now, more than ever we need to come together as a community to support the restaurants we know and love as they continue to face hardship during the pandemic. We asked our team to put together a list of some of their all time favourite Hamilton establishments to highlight (It was VERY hard to pick just 12!)

From classic diner fare to authentic Vietnamese/Thai food, Hamilton has such an incredible selection to choose from. We’ve included how to support each of these businesses through takeout or delivery. When you can, please consider ordering directly from the restaurants as it saves them a substantial fee that is collected by the delivery service platforms.

We dare you to get through this list without your stomach grumbling! 

Electric Diner

96 George Street, Hamilton ON

Inspired by the classic 80’s diner, Electric Diner specializes in amazing burgers - like the Electric Burger which consists of two beef patties, double American cheese, hickory sticks, awesome Sauce, chipotle ketchup, lettuce, pickle and, onion as well as whimsical breakfast items like the Rainbow Brite Pancakes: 3 buttermilk pancakes with rainbow cream cheese icing, topped with Froot Loops cereal. 

You can currently order for takeout or delivery. They are currently available on Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats for delivery, but fun fact, the restaurant saves a whopping 20% when you order directly through their website right here: https://www.electricdinerhamilton.com/order-online-1

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
