The Brunch Buzz – School

How can you not love brunch?  An excuse to sleep in a little and then enjoy a meal in between meals – it’s perfect.  Add in a sunny day, some good company and a Caesar or two and you’re in dining euphoria!  There was one spot that I was trying to check out for some…

Briscola Trattoria – CLOSED

Yummy yummy yummy!  Only words that could come to mind during this meal! I am bombarded daily with newsletters, blogs and articles about new restaurant openings in the city and more often than not I’m excited about them but it can also get overwhelming, especially when my list of places to go doesn’t seem to…

Thompson Diner

There’s nothing like a spicy Italian Sausage at the end of a long night of dancing and drinking – and I’m talking about the hot dog here people! I went through a stage in life where this was my ritual of sorts – some people like Chinese food, others like Mickey D’s but I loved…

Winterlicious 2011 – Bangkok Garden

Better late than never, it’s been a busy week! For my last Winterlicious adventure I went to what I’ve heard is a Toronto staple in Thai dining and has been around for almost 30 years – Bangkok Garden on Elm Street. I had first heard about this place when I was  booking a spa day…

Winterlicious is here!

Its that time of year again where new restos and old favourites open their doors for the city to experience everything they have to offer out of their kitchen at sometimes reasonable fixed price.  Winterlicious is upon us yet again which means alot of eating out and more food adventures to embark on. This year…

Origin – CLOSED

I always keep my promises and so here’s a long awaited post! I’m ashamed to say that this place has been on my list of places to go for months and from reading review after glowing review of the food, the anticipation was only building.  On a blustery and cold winter night I finally found…

Cheers to 2011!

It’s been a long time since my last blog entry and I wish I had a better reason for being missing in action but unfortunately it seems as though I had fallen into my own trap.  The trap that first inspired me to take this adventure.  The ever familiar trap of comfortable repetitiveness.  The same…
