The Senator

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 […]

I have been quite in hibernation this winter with my last post published during Christmas time.  My work-life balance shifted significantly, I have to give way to gain more stable footing.  That doesn’t mean I stopped appreciating good food.  I have rediscovered ways on how to alleviate my stress through playing in my own kitchen […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Otto’s Berlin Döner

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 […]
