Alioli Ristorante

Whenever I dine in Mississauga, I’d only visit Chinese restaurants with the family. And of course, when it came to European Restaurants I would simply head over downtown Toronto. To be honest, Mississauga carries a lot of chained restaurants – that never appealed to me much so I never bothered. But recently a friend had told me about an authentic Italian restaurant, Alioli Ristorante, located near Square One shopping mall so we decided to check it…

Lucien

When I first came across the Lucien Groupon – $30 for $60, I was hesitant because of all the mixed reviews but ended up purchasing it anyways. Lucien (@lucientoronto) is a intimate European restaurant located on Wellington that present dishes made from local produce. Despite the mixed reviews I was still excited to check this place out – we ended up visiting on a Friday night – and was glad I ended up making reservations because the restaurant…

Wabora

Wabora Fusion Japanese Restaurant (@WaboraSushi) is an upscale restaurant located within the Thompson Hotel in the King St West District. When I was asked by a friend to come up with an upscale Japanese restaurant in downtown – I honestly didn’t feel like splurging at Blowfish or AME,  So I ended up doing a bit of research on Urbanspoon hoping to find a restaurant with a cheaper price point – and so, a few days later we ended up…

G for Gelato & Espresso Bar

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know I’m crazy for gelato! It literally turns me into a super giddy person haha! So imagine my surprise when I just happen to pass by G for Gelato (@GforGelato) after a long and tiring day. Just note that this rarely happens to me – I always do research & read menus prior showing up to anything! But it feels nice to do something out of the norm once…

The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro

I visited The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro (@WORKSBURGER) a few weeks ago with my cousins. To be honest, I’m not too huge on burgers – either I’ve never come across a burger that has completely blown me away or I’m just extremely picky on how I like it made. Anyways, for whatever reasons it may be – my cousin managed to drag me to The Works (Oakville location) a few weeks ago. My cousin has been a…

Wine Tasting @ Mavrik Wine Bar

Few weeks ago, I was invited by Mr. Tim Chan (@mrtimchan) to a Private Wine Tasting event held at Mavrik Wine Bar (@mavrikwinebar) showcasing their small productions of wine – hosted by famous sommelier, Alexander Hamilton. Not being any sort of a wine connoisseur, the thought of this wine tasting event was definitely intimidating to say the least. Mary Chan, one of my favourite food bloggers was also invited to the event (Website: Eat, Drink and Be Mary /…

Bestellen

Bestellen (@BestellenTO) was such an amazing dining experience. The food was delectable, service was friendly –  I left this place wanting more. Truly a culinary highlight for me! Located on College St. (near Ossington Ave.), Bestellen is owned by Top Chef Canada finalist Rob  Rossi (@Chefrobrossi) and partner Ryan Sarfeld (@RyanSarfeld). They dedicate their menu items to all meat lovers – featuring all aged cuts of beef! Exterior: Not knowing whether Bestellen would be packed – I…

Soft Opening @ Kinton Ramen

Please keep in mind that this is NOT a review of Kinton Ramen. I attended their soft opening last night and believe that it is only fair to do a full review once they officially open.  I simply want to post some photos and give everyone a little sneak preview of whats in store for Kinton Ramen. (Grand Opening: Friday May 18, 2012)  Kinton Ramen (@KintonRamen) / Facebook: KintonRamen is small & narrow restaurant located on…

I love Banh Mi Boys!

Banh Mi Boys (@Banhmiboys) is a sandwich shop located on the busy streets of Queen Street West (&Spadina). This eatery is a sandwich shop that serves gourmet Banh Mi, Steamed Bao and Tacos. I panicked momentarily when I first walked in – utterly shocked at the amount of people lining up (literally all the way  outside). Their kitchen staff is quick and efficient so I didn’t end up waiting too long. Banh Mi Boys itself is…

Cool Hand Luc

Cool Hand Luc (@coolhandlucTO) is a cute little ice cream shop that opened last year in June 2011, located on King Street West in the heart of downtown Toronto. Besides serving a variety of fine ice cream, they also cater to hot soups and grilled cheese all year round! Unfortunately, after filling our tummies with sausages over at WVRST (See Post Here) that night, we were only in the mood (and had room) for ice cream!  A shot of…

WVRST

WVRST (@WvrstBeerHall) is a “sausage fest” and by that I mean everything on the menu is literally sausage + beer!  I’ve never been huge on sausages- actually – its more like I never knew there were THIS many kinds of different sausages that existed – so witnessing the galore of sausages in all types and shapes on display was neat. But it was great to finally check this place out and get it off the radar. WVRST…

Le Cafe Michi

Le Cafe Michi is located in a quaint plaza on Pharmacy and Sheppard in Scarborough. Nothing on the exterior really indicates that this is a Japanese restaurant; it just looks like a small cafe shop so you’ll actually have to look for it or you’ll miss it passing by. I was quite excited to check this place out. Many friends have raved and highly recommended certain menu items and after reading many positive reviews I…

Fuel House

Last Sunday, I finally made my way to Fuel House (@FuelHouseTO) after hearing the non stop rave about their delicious sandwiches and snacks! Unfortunately we weren’t that hungry when we arrived  but still decided to grab a “light” snack. I really love this place. They focus on serving quality food while keeping the presentation of their dishes clean and simple. Fuel House is situated in Little Italy / Portugal Village in a converted Victorian Home.  Their aim is to provide tasty food, cold pints…

Stoney’s Bread Company

Stoney’s Bread Company is a hidden gem tucked away in Oakville serving familiar classics – Italian and a modern Mediterranean influence. The doors of this restaurant opened back in 2004 by co -owners Steve Chabot and Blake Stoneburgh (restaurant name was inspired by Blake’s father). With Stoney’s Bread Company being # 2 on Urbanspoon’s “Toronto’s Most Popular Restaurant” plus a friend’s recommendation (particularly their Sunday brunch) – it was pretty obvious that Stoney’s would be my next stop…
