Brunching options this long weekend

September 5, 2015


I have always had a weakness with weekend brunches. Much more relaxed than middle of the week dinners, it tends to be more my style. If you are in a lookout for brunching options for the weekend but are not too keen about long lineups, I have suggestions where you can find the alternate or […]

La Paloma

July 20, 2015


After seeing my friend Abe Wornovitzky successfully pull-off his Juan in a Million Mexican food pop-up during the PanAm Torch relay, I didn’t know I would find more treats. I came to the event just looking for tacos and maybe some latin music to go on the background. The day was perfect for the event, […]

Friday Nights at ROM and Dutch Dreams

November 10, 2014


Friday was one of those rare times when I can hang out with my sister. She always comes as a unit, with Jeremy and Gabrielle usually in tow. Friday, it was just her and me and we decided to spend it at the Royal Ontario Museum. Up to the end of this month, Friday nights […]

Sake Bar Kushi

January 19, 2014


I don’t remember how many times I have confessed my love affair with Japanese cuisine. After my own Filipino heritage, it’s a toss-up between Catalan and Japanese for second place. So when I got an invitation to come to try Sake Bar Kushi’s (or sometimes known as Kushi Izakaya) newly improved menu, I didn’t even […]

This winter has been gruelling and it’s not even half-way over yet. For when the ice storm happened, I waited it out and watched it in the comforts of my balcony. But it seems that there is no reprieve to this insanely cold weather. I don’t think I’d spend the whole winter just watching from […]

High Street Fish & Chips

November 2, 2013


The last few weeks have been really hectic for me.  Finally the last bit on my to-do list was done and I found myself close by High Street Fish & Chips.  I have read about them before and wanted to try them out.  The first time I came there, I got lost and the second […]

Drums N Flats

May 2, 2013


Today I was a little bit indulgent.  Maybe it was the sunny day that has me in such a good mood.  Maybe it was that I have some hours to kill in the middle of the day.  Today I indulged in another guilty pleasure which was chicken wings.  Today, I quieted down guilt with a […]

North 44 – Temporarily closed

February 4, 2013


To indulge in more Winterlicious, Abe selected North 44 for us to try.  The main attraction for this restaurant was that it was owned and operated by Chef Mark McEwan.  Comparing the Winterlicious offerings of North 44 and Bymark (another McEwan restaurant in downtown Toronto), we were unanimous in selecting North 44.  This was because […]
