Maple Leaf Tavern

May 15, 2016

A few weeks ago I was invited to Maple Leaf Tavern launch party.  As most times I am in anticipation of what the restaurant would be offering for us to try.  But I was especially looking forward to the event as it was the first time that my friend and sistah-from-another-motha Catalina would be joining […]

Coffee and All That Jazz

April 16, 2016

Last Wednesday, I found myself in downtown Toronto, too early for a dinner date.  At times like that, I normally would just kill time in a coffee shop and hope that they have a comfy chair for me to settle in.  This time around I remembered a cozy spot in Roncesvalles.  I found myself back […]

Balzac

Early this year I went back to one of my happy places. I came back to Ryerson to meet up with my business partner Abe with the intent of planning for several EyeCandyTO things. It ended up to be a trip down memory lane. What is different this time is that there is an actual […]

Cresta Toronto

March 25, 2016

Last week, I was invited to the media launch of Cresta Toronto.  An Italian restaurant right in the heart of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, it was enough invitation for me.  I have always been in love with this address.  If I ever moved out of North York, this is potentially where you would find me. To […]

The Senator

If you are considering brunch tomorrow and find yourself at Yonge and Dundas, I encourage you to go southeast towards Victoria St. and look for The Senator. Its facade make it seem small but what is inside is a total surprise. You would literally go in deep into the restaurant to enjoy a meal. I […]

Origin

I have been quite in hibernation this winter with my last post published during Christmas time.  My work-life balance shifted significantly, I have to give way to gain more stable footing.  That doesn’t mean I stopped appreciating good food.  I have rediscovered ways on how to alleviate my stress through playing in my own kitchen […]

Loaded Pierogi

When Abe and I have a photoshoot, I love it best when we talk of the finer details over food. I say all our creative EyeCandyTO shoots come out when we are pacified. Our latest intense EyeCandyTO photoshoot happened a month ago and to prepare for it, we headed to Loaded Pierogi by St Lawrence […]

Bonjour Brioche

November 10, 2015

A few weeks ago, I found the perfect time to walk in to Bonjour Brioche early. This popular brunch place has always been in my radar, but I could never get here early enough to have the leisure of eating breakfast slow. No matter as they don’t try to hasten you, you would feel guilty […]

Blaze Pizza

October 18, 2015

0

About two weeks ago, I was invited to the opening of Blaze Pizza at Yonge and Dundas just by Ryerson University. Getting there was like a walk down the memory lane. I was glad I gave myself a few minutes to do a short walk by parking a few streets north. I was able to […]

Schnitzel Queen

Last week, I visited my EyeCandyTO business partner, Abe Wornovitzky‘s new condo at Adelaide and Sherbourne. I must admit that I was green with envy with the address. To me, having the culinary school, George Brown College to the north, St. Lawrence market to the south and the Distillery District to the east makes the […]
