I found myself with time to spend one afternoon in Etobicoke by Bloor and Islington.  I don’t frequent this area but I was to visit a friend and I was too early.  I opted to scout the streets and when I got my fill of old houses that would give you flashbacks of the 70s […]

There was one night about a week ago when I just thought of how much I miss the company of one of my favourite dining partners, Diona, a.k.a. TitaFlips. Between her very hectic Kanto and catering schedule and me working full time, our dinners together has lately been scant.  I sent her a text and […]

The Hole in the Wall

After spending the afternoon walking the wide expanse of the Exhibition Place for the Artist Project a few weeks ago, my friend Valerie suggested we wind down with a drink at this place at the Junction called The Hole in the Wall. She knows I have a thing for unusual local hang-outs and she guarantees […]

I decided to take a walk last Sunday around my neighbourhood and I am amazed at the little details I miss on a regular basis. It is hard to keep abreast of what is around me when I drive by too quickly. As I walked up back north to Yonge and Finch, one restaurant caught […]

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the media tasting for Parcae, the new restaurant and cocktail bar inside The Templar Hotel at Adelaide and Spadina. Started out right from when I walked in the door, I was handed a flute of champagne as I went past the reception area. I was then told […]

About two weeks ago, I was on my way to another food event. The food event being the media opening of a bar, I expected that it would be more drinking than eating. I have learned to have a snack before showing up to the event. Being in the Queen West area, I didn’t have […]

Last year on my way to Barcelona, I made a stop at Frankfurt. I always used to lay-over for a few hours at Frankfurt but last year, I decided to make that lay-over especially long. It gave me enough time to go downtown and browse around the city. And by browsing, I mean trying local […]

Last week was just like déjà vu. I got to dine again with Diona, a.k.a. TitaFlips just like old times. I always love having that opportunity as I know I would again have a very good conversation over a very good meal. Buca saw good reviews anywhere I checked, I know this one would be […]

It is very rare that I make a post with one picture. Actually I think it has never happened before. But I don’t think it would be hard for you to get the idea when the picture is of an ice cream sandwich with made-from-scratch cookies. Crumbly and not overly sweet, perfect for the creaminess […]

There are times when I make an impulsive decision to enjoy a beautiful meal. Once I can’t shake off the need to sit in front of a very well executed dinner, one of the people that comes to mind to share the dinner with me is my business partner, Abe Wornovitzky. He has the same […]
