Loaded Pierogi

December 8, 2015

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 […]

Parcae – Permanently closed

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 […]

Chelo & Co. – Permanently closed

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 […]

Birds and Beans

Another discovery I made in Mimico is this indie cafe that definitely have real curb appeal. Take a look at the picture of how it looked from the street and you would understand why I had to make a stop at Birds and Beans. It stood out to me, with its elaborate murals and bright, […]

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 […]

Bonjour Brioche

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 […]

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 […]

Saving Gigi

By the third week this November, I have been in Toronto for the last 15 years. It doesn’t feel that all that time has passed by. Of all the lessons that I have learned living here is to appreciate every warm day that comes after Labor day. Lately, the temperature has hovered in the teens […]

Buca Yorkville

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 […]
