La Carnita

I love Mexican food and La Carnita (www.lacarnita.com) is one restaurant with great word of mouth that I should have tried months ago. We had a party of three and two of us showed up to get a table. They do not seat you unless your full party is there. The tortilla chips with guacamole…

1 Love Kitchen

I was so excited when I heard that there was going to be a healthy alternative to Jamaican food opening up in Queen West. 1 Love Kitchen (www.1lovekitchen.com). The first time I tried to get an exciting tasting, they were closing up shop at 7:15pm. Second time is the charm and I chose the Char-Grilled…

To Be Canadian, Eat Poutineville

Where can you have the option to make Poutine 5000 different ways? Poutineville! (http://poutineville.com/) Pretty fantastic I know. They employ 2 workers to crush potatoes by hand all day since they don’t have a machine and they are the house special. Poutine is a very Canadian tradition, Poutineville started out in Montreal and before arriving…

Kal & Mooy Food Truck

I was so excited to try 1 Love Kitchen that when I got there, they just closed. What a bummer! I decided to go to Rose City Kitchen as a back up and then casually spotted this blue food truck called Kal & Mooy (http://torontofoodtrucks.ca/kal-mooy) which is East African. I popped on over and started…

Brunch at The Beast

Finally, I was able to enjoy brunch at the very popular The Beast Restaurant (http://thebeastrestaurant.com/). The menu is very unconventional and unique. I got the dark roast coffee which tasted like a combination of walnuts and chocolate. It came in a personal french press! I loved the home made donuts. Maple Bacon and Sprinkles. They…

Gyugyuya Is The Only Curry Japanese Restaurant in Toronto

Toronto has gottenĀ the first curry Japanese restaurant to open in Toronto. It stands out like a sore thumb on Dundas St just east of University Ave. The restaurant is called Gyugyuya (www.gyugyuya.com/) and is painted yellow. They specialize in curry however they provide dishes without if you’re not feeling it. We ordered the Karage Chicken…

Too Good To Be True

Such an easy recipe and it’s a healthy dessert! Broiled Peaches with Ice Cream Peaches (I used three) Butter Cinnamon Brown Sugar (which is healthier than regular Sugar) Two Scoops of Ice Cream (I used PC Crackle but keeping with the healthy theme, I’d suggest any flavour of Frozen Yogurt) -Cut the peaches in half…

Pastizza New To Market Street

Taste of Market Street welcomes Pastizza (http://www.pastizza.ca/) to the neighbourhood. The restaurant is so unique, brewing their own wine in house. This restaurant has the same owners as Mistura and Splendido. The service is superb; being greeted and seated immediately, having a very attentive waitress, filling up our empty water glasses and having a great…

Spoil Yourself With An Ice Cream Sandwich

Ever since Cool Hand Luc has closed on King St, there has been a lack of local ice cream. I love Bang Bang Ice Cream but it’s not very close and convenient like Cool Hand Luc was to me. Zoe’s Cafe on King Street now sells ice cream sammies made by Sweet Flour Bake Shop…

Sneak Peak of What’s To Come..

I don’t really use exact measurements, it’s all guesstimates . Pesto Chicken Pasta SaucePestoHoney MustardGarlicExtra Virgin Olive Oil…
