Novotel Vaughan Trio Restaurant

April 26, 2016

0

Two weeks ago, I was given a VIP treatment at Novotel Vaughan as they invited me to join their celebration of being 5 years in the city of Vaughan.  Strategically located behind the massive Vaughan Mills and close to Canada’s Wonderland, I have always passed by this hotel never knowing that there was a very […]

Mondello Ristorante

It has been awhile that I had really indulged in a very good meal.  While it is indeed often that I eat out, I reserve fine dining to special occasions.  Last weekend was one of those special events where it was Arsha’s birthday, one of my besties from my old job at GSK.  To complete […]

La Vinia

Paella is one of those dishes that you have to enjoy with someone. To be authentic, it comes in the paellera that it is cooked in and even the smallest one is still too much for one person to finish. I had my eye at a Spanish restaurant in Toronto and I have been saving […]

Eddie’s Wok N Roll

I used to come so often to Eddie’s Wok N Roll when I was working in Mississauga. It was really convenient to have it so close to work. What we normally do is pre-order everything before we go and when we swing by we have everything early. Makes it swift and easy to have lunch […]

As I was on my way home today, the rain was beating down my car. Stuck in traffic, I started drifting back to old memories from childhood of walking in the rain. When the rain falls hard back in Manila enough to cancel school, my friends and I would be strolling amidst the rain, celebrating […]

York Farmers Market

For the past seven years of living at Yonge and Finch, I never stopped at York Farmers Market. I often would pass by it and I was always in a hurry to go somewhere that I clearly have taken it for granted. It is funny how I often wished there was something like York Farmers […]

Peters On Eglinton

For the longest time that I have taken up residence in Toronto, I did not know that I have high school friends here in the same city. I was so busy building my roots that I never really sought out to find my old high school friends. The funniest thing is that I even have […]

Lunches at Brampton

February 16, 2015

2

There are days that I have this impulse to just abandon my packed lunch and treat myself to something warm and filling for lunch. I am starting to find the foodie gems amidst the phletora of warehouses and manufacturers at Brampton. Some are my discoveries and some are recommendations from colleagues at work. Aside from […]

Paramount Fine Foods

Last Friday was a day that I had a date with my dentist. The chore suddenly got interesting when I noticed that the prominent restaurant at the east side of the building changed once again. Over the years I have visited my dentist, it has changed into several businesses. But I think this time around, this […]

Ishy’s Toronto Holiday

As I sit here with what is reported as the last day of the deep freeze (for the time being anyways), I recollect what transpired for the last few weeks. I am so glad this cold set in this week just as my little sister left Toronto. I am not so sure she would give […]
