My Favourite Toronto Restaurants

My Favourite Toronto Restaurants

Round two in Toronto is coming to an end for Adam and I, but I feel like there’s a lot more to eat. After two years in this city, I’ve eaten out many times. Many times. The checklist on my iPhone is still growing and eating at […]

Dinner at Alo | Toronto

Dinner at Alo | Toronto

I’ve been waiting to write this post for two years. We moved back to Toronto 2014, around the time Alo revealed its view overlooking the bustling Queen and Spadina intersection, and I’ve been drooling over glowing reviews ever since. I spent two years waiting to have […]

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La Toronto

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La Toronto

Afternoon Tea has so much going for it. Where else do you get to indulge in copious amounts of tea, sweets, scones and Prosecco for hours on end? And who doesn’t love miniature sandwiches? No one, that’s who. The first afternoon tea was held by Anna, the […]

Finding beef in Florence | Review of Osteria Tripperia Il Magazzino

Finding beef in Florence | Review of Osteria Tripperia Il Magazzino

I research restaurants a lot. When I’m travelling I make restaurant reservations before I plan accommodations. I pride myself in having “good restaurant karma,”managing to find a great spot to eat wherever I go. I was so excited to eat in Florence, after Rome’s wealth […]

Souk Tabule for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner | Toronto

Souk Tabule for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner | Toronto

I’m so freaking happy the first restaurant in the “up-and-coming” Canary District is finally open. Souk Tabule — the little sister of Toronto’s Middle Eastern restaurant mogul Tabule — is a fast-casual spot I fell in love with in a hurry. If you read my […]

Brunch at Hollandaise Diner | Toronto

Brunch at Hollandaise Diner | Toronto

On the weekend Adam and I eloped, we decided to do all the things we always talk about doing in Toronto and never do. Venturing east on the Danforth to visit a restaurant that specializes in my favourite breakfast food was one thing we just […]

Lunch at Tratorria del Tribunale in Parma, Italy

Lunch at Tratorria del Tribunale in Parma, Italy

I take trips to eat. I wrote an article for Eat Drink Travel about the myriad products from Parma, and it’s always got me thinking about why I went there in the first place. To pig out on parmesan and prosciutto. Travelling to eat is burgeoning in popularity because […]

The sacrificial lobster roll: Lunch at Lbs. in Toronto

The sacrificial lobster roll: Lunch at Lbs. in Toronto

Earlier this week a few co-workers and I wandered down Yonge Street to check out the latest restaurant opening near work. Lbs., which stands for lobster, burger, salad, and is pronounced ‘pounds’ is a new concept restaurant that opened up at the end of June. The […]

Summerlicious at Bent: Toronto

Summerlicious at Bent: Toronto

It’s that time of year again, again!! Summerlicious is one of the best parts about living in Toronto, aside from Winterlicious (you can see my rave about that here). I have a tough time not going broke eating at all the restaurants constantly opening in the […]

Review: Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery in New York City

Review: Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery in New York City

“Who picked this place? It’s so good!” my friend exclaimed as we dug into the table full of French food. How good does it feel when you pick a restaurant in a city where you don’t live that your New Yorker friends haven’t been to yet […]

True loaf at TOAST, a Distillery District pop-up: Toronto

True loaf at TOAST, a Distillery District pop-up: Toronto

Every morning on my way to work, I walk  past what has to be the busiest dermatological clinic in Toronto. People are literally waiting for the doors of AvantDerm to open at 8am to get an appointment in their prime Distillery location. So, you can imagine […]

Brunch at The Merchant Tavern | St. John’s

Brunch at The Merchant Tavern | St. John’s

In my lifetime, the dull grey cinderblock building on the corner of Water and Becks Cove has been home to a bank and two restaurants sequestered to the dim ‘vaultish’ basement. Now, the Jeremys of Raymond’s have reestablished this downtown cornerstone with a modern yet verdant […]
