Sunday Mornings at the Distillery District

May 18, 2014


Today I set out early to do an errand at the Distillery District. Any excuse I find to visit Pikto, I will take. Pikto has always been my go-to printing place when I want to be assured of quality. A little pricier than most, but it is worth keeping my sanity as I don’t stress […]

Dexter’s Toronto Food Trips

March 25, 2014


When family visits me in Toronto, my tours seem to always revolve around food. Continuing on with my favorite cousin’s food trippins’, Dexter and I have eaten non-stop since he arrived. LOL. He has visited me several times already so all conventional tourist spots are out of our list to visit. That is why most […]

Greenwood Smokehouse BBQ

February 15, 2014


One thing when you have too long of a winter is that you start daydreaming about warmer weather 24/7. I know I have to go through the coldest of it as I was the one who chose to be Canadian. To make best a gloomy situation, I try to inject colour in my day-to-day, opting […]

Le Papillon on Front

December 15, 2013


Last Wednesday was definitely an indulgence. That night I experienced dining at Le Papillon on Front. I was invited to try out a sampler menu. I must say out of all the invites that I have received, La Papillon on Front was one of the most organized and most considerate of the little details of […]

Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery

December 14, 2013


Back in Manila we really go crazy for this season.  From the early signs of Christmas decorations (and I mean early!), to the Christmas carols that waft through the air as dusk sets in, there is no missing that Christmas will be an eventuality.  When I came to Canada, one of the things that I […]

Lady Marmalade

November 2, 2013


As most Sunday mornings go, the idea of a brunch would surely get you up from slumber. If that is your plan this weekend, I recommend that you swing by Lady Marmalade. One should be prudent to be there early though as it is popular. Not even 10am last Sunday morning, there was already a […]

Under The Table Restaurant

September 12, 2013


This past Tuesday was one of those days where it seemed never-ending. The adrenalin pumped through my veins from the early morn towards my last important appointment for the day. By the time it was dusk, I was completely depleted in energy. That doesn’t mean I stayed home though. I still have planned to have […]

#Urbanhour with @UrbanspoonTO at @GanziToronto

August 12, 2013


For most of you the follow me, you might have noticed that I link my posts to Urbanspoon. I find that it as a useful tool to pacify my bottomless appetite and it is also my thinking that it gives you, my readers, more reviews to help you pick where next to indulge. Last Thursday, […]

@ElcatrinCA #Elcatrinlaunch

July 25, 2013


Let me just start this post to say that this meal was one of my most memorable.  From the time I approached the patio, to walking in gawking at the elaborate interiors, to the vast variety of food we enjoyed, to the one of the most attentive service,  I must say I was beyond impressed.  […]


July 25, 2013


I have a bad case of jetlag this time around. For the last few days, I have been unable to catch a wink no matter I was lying for hours on bed. Last Sunday, I forced myself to be awake all day and to tire myself out.  My mind was set to head out and […]
