The Senator – Temporarily closed

March 4, 2016


If you are considering brunch tomorrow and find yourself at Yonge and Dundas, I encourage you to go southeast towards Victoria St. and look for The Senator. Its facade make it seem small but what is inside is a total surprise. You would literally go in deep into the restaurant to enjoy a meal. I […]

Aunties And Uncles After Abe’s BreakfastTV Stint – Closed

June 25, 2013


Today my day started really early.  My EyeCandyTO partner, Abe, landed a cooking demo on CityTV’s Breakfast TV and they wanted him ready in the studio by 6:30am.  To us, it meant that I have to rise by 4:00am (My brain is always slow to start.  I generally have to idle for 30 minutes before […]

Slider Revolution

November 12, 2012


The thing about being a teacher in the morning and being a photographer in the afternoon, it was almost always a guarantee that it was the reason that you skip lunch.  That was what has happened today once again.  It was past 5:00 pm and I am yet to eat lunch.  I did plan my […]

A Night at the Dish Cooking Studio with Abe

November 3, 2012


I have met my EyeCandyTO partner Abraham Wornovitzky about 3 years ago in a one-week intensive food styling course  at George Brown College.  Back then I thought it would be useful for me to enroll for the course to understand a food stylist’s perspective.  I thought it would make me a better photographer to understand the […]

Soupstock 2012

October 21, 2012


When about 200 chefs band together to get their voices heard to Stop the Mega Quarry, the crowd comes.  Just like what happened a year ago at Foodstock, foodies came in droves to support the efforts to stop the proposal to build a limestone mega quarry at Melancthon township.  When last year the attendance was […]

Harbord Bakery

October 4, 2012


Accompanied by Abraham Wornovitzky today, we spent the afternoon scoping the site for a future photo shoot for a client.  I don’t know whether it was the brainstorming we did or driving through rows of restaurants by Dundas West that Abe started to have a serious craving for something sweet.  It was quite amusing to […]

Coming home to Toronto

September 1, 2012


Walking the streets of Barcelona on the last day of my vacation has always been a tug of war of melancholy and enthusiasm.  I have always been attached to Barcelona and it felt like home.  It has always been there to inspire and get me at my most creative. When I come back to Toronto, […]

Phil’s Original BBQ

June 14, 2012


One of my guilty pleasures was to watch reruns of Restaurant Makeover at Food TV Network.  I don’t know what it is about the show, but I do enjoy watching the process of redesigning the interiors of a restaurant and the overhaul that happens with a restaurant menu.  One episode that made so much impression […]

Royal Sulu Civet Coffee Shoot

June 2, 2012


My childhood summers were mostly spent in a big island south of the Philippines called Mindanao.  Slow and comfortable way of life, where people stop and greet each other in the streets, children playfully climb on trees and the beach was a hop and skip away.  With this simple everyday life, I do remember my […]
