The Best Starts With Byblos

This gem of a restaurant opened in March this year located on Duncan St, north of King St. Byblos (www.byblostoronto.com) is partnered by Charles Khabouth and Hanif Harji who also own Weslodge (I am shocked by this since I didn’t like Weslodge at all) and Patria. Byblos is inspired by Eastern Mediterranean regions and is tapas….

Ended Up At Toma Burger

Toma(http://toma-burgeraddiction.com/) is the new burger joint in town at Queen West. It is an upscale dine-in restaurant with classy booth seating and they play oldies music (70’s/80’s)! I’m really happy we ended up here because they are now in my top 5 burger restaurants in Toronto. Big Smoke Burger is my number one but Toma…

From A Box To A Bar, Come And Get It!

Come And Get It (http://www.comeandgetit.ca/) use to have a pop up store on Spadina before settling in on their new and permanent spot on Queen Street. The restaurant is very cute and cozy, I especially loved the garage door they keep open until 11pm. I think they are really unique because they offer any flavour…

ME VA ME Express

I didn’t like Me Va Me that much when I went to the actual restaurant. The service was slow and the food wasn’t that great. I received a gift card in the mail for ME VA ME Express. For lunch I got the Falafel Laffa Wrap, stuffed with red cabbage (in a cream sauce), tahini,…

‘Merican Lovin’ At Home Of The Brave

I love Home Of The Brave (http://www.thehotb.com/) I’ve been once before and the food was amazing. Did not disappoint at all!  If you don’t like all things America, don’t come here. Their motto is Join or Die is a famous phrased coined by Benjamin Franklin. Their original restaurant is La Carnita. They love the classic…

The Best French Onion Soup Is At Le Select

Le Select(http://www.leselect.com/) is known as one of the most authentic Parisian bistros in Toronto. Most of the ingredients used are certified Organic. I walk by it most days while going on a walk with Opie. It’s located on Wellington St between Portland and Spadina. The place is always jam packed so it must be good I thought…

La Carnita’s Sweet Jesus 4 Life

This past Thursday, La Carnita made their debut inside the Methlab with Sweet Jesus Ice Cream (side business). Between 5pm and 7pm inside One Method Methlab there was awesome ice cream being made. I  couldn’t believe there was a bar inside the office, with wicked artwork on the walls.              …

Brunch at The Good Fork

As soon as I found out the Good Fork (http://goodfork.ca/#) serves red velvet pancakes, I was already there. They don’t take reservations on the weekend but the wait was only thirty minutes. They shoot you a text when your table is ready. We had the option to sit at the booth on the main level…

Horrible Landing at Hunter’s Landing

Hunter’s Landing has been on my radar for a while since moving close to the area. I’ve heard good things about them and was hoping they were not like William’s Landing. Sadly, I was very disappointed with the food and service. We ordered the pulled pork pizza which is topped with bbq tomatoes, spinach and…

Dining at Rosewater

Where do a lot of celebrities dine at, well it’s Rosewater. It is an elegant restaurant that offers a fusion of modern classics. I love the decor of the restaurant, it’s classy with large ceilings and easy to have a conversation. On your way down to the washroom, there are photos of the famous people…

Dinner at Scaddabush

Feed your soul with Scaddabush (http://www.scaddabush.com/) but don’t expect great service. The food is a unique take on Italian.                           Crispy Polenta Fries were ordered to share around the table. Polenta is cornmeal boiled into a porridge that can be manipulated into any…

Kronut In The Haus

What is more lovely than a hybrid of a donut and a croissant? A cronut! The cronut was created by Chef Dominique Ansel. It took him two months to perfect the recipe which is basically croissant dough that is fried. The entire process or making the cronut takes up to three days. Bakeryhaus (http://www.bakeryhaus.ca/) has come…
