Han Ba Tang

December 11, 2014


A few weeks ago, I finally got my wish. I often prayed that food events that I go to would somehow make it to North York. That came into fruition with an invitation from Han Ba Tang. For a change, I only needed 10 minutes to get to an event! That already was a treat! […]

Restaurants around my periphery at Yonge and Finch are mostly Iranian and Asian (predominantly Korean and Japanese). While I do have my favourites that I keep on going back to, I do wish that the area would be more diverse than what it is now. When I read of Schnitzeland, I could not resist checking […]

Super Khorak Supermarket

The Sunday after my opening reception for Catalonia Castellers, I woke up late and yet I still felt exhausted. I guess I was holding my breath for such a long time. It didn’t help that I chose really high heels for the afternoon and after about 5 hours talking to people during the reception, my […]

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 […]

Johnny’s Hamburgers

Being a teacher, sometimes there were days that were harder than most.  This happens when I teach too much theoretical concepts and not practical chemistry.  Too many theories to put in my head and when my students ask for me to explain harder concepts, it really can get your head pounding.  Days like that, I […]

Genghis Khan Mongolian Grill

November 26, 2012


My third home in Toronto was the Del Rosario’s abode.  Tere and I have been friends since my arrival in Canada that I almost feel she’s my long-lost sibling.  We have discovered and learned Toronto together and over a decade after, that friendship goes on strong.  Tere has solidified it making me the godmother of […]

Tsuki Izakaya

April 29, 2012


For the longest time I have tried to find time to get into the Toronto izakaya craze and haven’t found the time to go downtown to experience one.  The one time I made it to one, the line was too long and on a cold day, I am not quite ready to line up for […]

Paramount Fine Foods Inc.

February 5, 2012


Today I have invited two good friends, Valerie and Natalia, to try Philippine Civet Coffee that I brought home from Manila.  Afternoon coffee would never be complete without something sweet to go along with it, so I went out this morning to find something to pair the coffee with.  I had the full intention to […]

North York blessed with its own Burger Priest

January 13, 2012


As I mentioned in a December post, I have found myself a part-time teaching job that I grovelled a bit to prep for. After a year of having my own schedule, it takes a while to get into the swing of something so regular once again. As things are starting to get into a pattern, […]

Moccasin Trail Park and Gonoe Sushi Japanese

October 30, 2011


I am a tourist of Toronto yet again with my youngest sister, Ish, visiting us here in Toronto this fall.  She has not been to North America before so she is just an enthralled about fall as I am.  I have lived in Toronto for about 12 years now and I am still in awe […]
