Fresh Restaurants, New Menu: Transformer, Squash Tacos and Deep Chocolate Supermilk

I’m making my way through the new items on the Fresh Restaurants‘ menu, which most of you will know is a top favourite take-out / dine-in option of mine in the city of Toronto (soon to be expanding – next up is Montreal!).
