Fatassenstrasse | Place | The nickname for Denman Street in the West End. It was earned on account of all the street’s many dessert specialty shops and fast food outlets. The teutonic nature of the nickname is presumably a nod to the neighbourhood’s German heritage; a play on the now defunct Robsonstrasse.

Usage | “I’m feeling peckish for shitty poutine and brownies. Let’s go down to Fatassenstrasse and gross each other out!”explore-the-lexicon
