Parcae – Permanently closed

November 26, 2015


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 […]

Za Pizzeria

June 14, 2015


One of my most favourite dining partners is Diona Joyce, a.k.a. @TitaFlips of Kanto. We share a love of food and each time I share a meal with her, I tend to become more aware of the different flavours as she always try to name what makes a dish so good. And as she figures […]

Mr. Tonkatsu

June 8, 2015


After an afternoon of walking through the Riverdale Artwalk by the Jimmie Simpson park this past Sunday, Guinevere Pura and I was ready for a very filling dinner. Trying to think of a place that would fit the bill, I thought of Mr. Tonkatsu. I have long wanted to try the place when I read […]

Cadbury #CrackIntoTheCreme Easter Egg Hunt and Let’s Be Frank

March 29, 2015


When I was invited for an Easter Egg hunt by Cadbury Creme Egg at the Artscape Youngplace, I underestimated the fun that I would have. I cannot recall the last time I did my last Easter Egg hunt. With each creme egg I find and place on my red pail, I gleefully looked for more. […]

Most of the time I drive everywhere in Toronto.  But today I had an itch to just power up my legs and do the walk.  Today Bloor and Yonge Sts were closed off for Open Streets Toronto (Bloor from Spadina to Parliament and Yonge from Bloor to Queen) and I just had to take part […]

Watching #GERvsARG at Firkin on King

July 14, 2014


Last Saturday was the first time I ever sat and watched a full game of football. That afternoon I watched the 2014 FIFA World Cup final game between Germany vs Argentina. My friend Valerie and I was supposed to be in a German restaurant and I already had my mind made up that my late […]

The Clubhouse Sandwich Shop

July 10, 2013


From Toronto Life, one new spot caught my eye because of its innovative branding.  Something about its graphic sensibilities drew me in and made me start reading the Introduction article of The Clubhouse Sandwich Shop in Toronto Life.  Must have been that their branding was red and white too, similar to mine.  As I read […]

Queen St. West and Spadina Food Trippin’ with Helen

October 29, 2012


One of my very good friends for many years now was Helen Ebron.  We were former colleagues at GlaxoSmithKline and we haven’t really dropped the friendship just because I have decided to lead another career.  We have regularly kept in touch, meeting every now and then to catch up with each other.  This week, she […]

Banh Mi Boys

May 25, 2012


What do you do when you have an hour to kill around the Spadina/Bloor area?  Look for good food of course!  The food I was in the mood to try today was Asian fusion themed restaurant Banh Mi Boys.  This restaurant has been long in my radar as I keep on seeing it trending in […]
