Horseback Trail Riding in Port Hope

During our weekend stay in Port Hope, one of the things on our itinerary was a horse back trail ride at Trickle Creek Farms. With living in the city, horseback riding is not something I can do very often so having horseback rail traiding on our schedule really made another highlight to the weekend. The experience at Trickle Creek Farms…

Haute Goat in Port Hope

One of most recommended activities suggested to me during the visit to our weekend in Port Hope was to visit Haute Goat Farm. The closest I’ve ever been to a goat is probably petting them a fence at the CNE so I was excited to visit Hate Goat Farm. The farm is situated on 200 acres of land with breathtaking…

Dressing up our Turkey Burgers for Thanksgiving

I love burgers. One of the best burgers I’ve ever had was at a random restaurant that Eden & I stumbled upon while we were aimlessly wandering around the South Coast of France. The burger looked simple but tasted like nothing we ever had before. This burger was made with the freshest ingredients and so ever since that experience, we’ve…

Ramen Misoya

About 2 months ago, I was planning a trip to Montreal and doing extensive research about possible ramen places to visit in the french city. Ramen Misoya came up a couple of times during my research and at that time Misoya didn’t exist in Toronto. Fast forward 1 month later, Misoya suddenly popped up on the hustle & bustle streets…

Japan: A day at Nara Park

Not sure where in Toronto you can come super close or even feed a deer with absolutely no supervision but this totally happened when we were exploring one of the million things you can do in Japan. Spending the day at Nara Park was absolutely amazing and something we’ll probably not be able to do (at least as freely) unless…

Bar Altura: New Restaurant over on Queen West

Queen West’s latest Italian addition has definitely made quite the impression with its  beautifully plated dishes and clean & modern look. While I am normally more focused on the food, I couldn’t help but notice the aesthetics at Bar Altura’s  – which created a nice stand out & sophisticated look compared to its fellow neighbours on  Queen West. Several weeks…

Saturday mornings at REDS (Square One)

As I’m sitting at my desk drafting this post, I’ve realized in a blink of an eye, come September is my 5 years working downtown Toronto. Time seriously flies. One of the restaurants that I frequent after work in the downtown core is REDS Wine Tavern inside First Canadian Place (due to its convenient location). While I can totally rave about…
