Miss Thing’s

When I think of Hawaii I’m instantly transported to breath taking sunsets, the warm sweet breeze, swaying palm trees and a vibe of just pure unadulterated relaxation.  Paradise indeed.  Nice to know that our little city has its own taste of the tropical island in the way of Miss Thing’s Bar on Queen West West…

Loka

I found myself at Loka on this rainy Saturday night when a good friend of mine and I were headed out for a long overdue catch up sesh.  She suggested Loka and coincidentally it had popped up on my newsfeed as a newly opened resto in the city.  The stars were aligned. If you haven’t…

Bar Fancy

You fancy huh?  Sorry, I couldn’t get that part of the song out of my head once we decided to venture out to Bar Fancy for dinner.  This spot has been on my list ever since it made Toronto Life’s Best Restaurants of 2015 list.  So the first thing I did of course was google…

Old School

I am a believer in that there is no season for BBQ.  Food that is BBQ’d is good any time, all the time.  Old School is a 24 hour (yes you read that right) comfort food spot on Dundas west and I had it on my list probably since the day it opened back in…

Via Vai – CLOSED

Yes it’s been a while.  No I have no excuses.  BUT I do have some exciting new adventures I’ve been on that I am super excited to share!  So let’s rewind back to a few months ago…picture this if you might.  We’re on the cusp of summer, the weather is getting warmer every day, hemlines…

The Brunch Buzz – Saving Grace

Welcome to The Brunch Buzz!  A new feature on my blog that will focus on one of my favourite meals.  Mostly because its not just a meal occasion but its actually a complete outing especially in our lovely city.  A typical outing for brunch goes like this, as I discovered on the sunny Monday of…

Lucky Red – CLOSED

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  Be it a TV show, a band or as it is in my case, food.  I thrive off the thrill and excitement of trying new things but sometimes a girl just wants something fast, uncomplicated and satisfying – food wise.  Ladies and gentleman, I confess to you all that one…

Pastizza – CLOSED

No one likes to be kept waiting.  Most of all no one likes to be kept waiting for almost an hour for a meal that they had a reservation for.  This was unfortunately the situation we were faced with when we arrived to Pastizza on Friday night a few weeks ago.  I had never heard…

Wilbur

When Wilbur opened up on King West I actually didn’t hear much about it until I found myself having conversations with friends and it would come up.  “Oh have you been to Wilbur?”  “I was at Wilbur last night” etc etc.  And so it got added to the Hit List.   The first time I…

Weslodge

You might know it as Weslodge or you might know it as that place on King West with the big, bright yellow doors.  Either way there’s no way you haven’t noticed this quaint, saloon inspired resto-lounge.  I’ve been a few times moreso for drinks and to be honest, the menu never appealed to me.  …
