Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar

I have a confession to make. Before my visit to Hy’s Steakhouse, I rarely enjoyed steak at restaurants – I don’t know if its because I’m picky or I’ve been going to the wrong places but the steaks just never turned out right for me. And if you’ve been following my blog you will notice that this is the very first time I’ve ordered steak for myself! In any case, I really want to share…

Mary Brown’s

I have never heard of Mary Brown’s until recently. Mary brown is a franchise across Canada-  known for their signature chicken that I have yet to try. Their chicken are “plump Grade A chicken, which we carefully cut by hand and marinate in our special marinade, making it extra tender. Each piece is then generously coated with our Signature seasoned breading and cooked to perfection in our proprietary cooking units, using the highest quality trans-fat free canola oil”…

Sushi Couture [Part 2]

See PART 1 – MY OMAKASE experience @ SUSHI COUTURE After my amazing Omakase experience at Sushi Couture, it was pretty obvious I would return for a regular dinner. As I had expected, I was not disappointed – in fact, I was probably more impressed =)   The highlight for me at Sushi Couture, was the Sushi Couture Maki (their signature roll) – words cannot be used to explain how scrumptious it is. Highly recommend!…

Omakase @ Sushi Couture [Part 1]

Sushi Couture, opened by Chef Ken (former owner of Japango) is one of my to go places for fresh and quality sushi with a lower price point in the downtown area. Located in The Annex, Sushi Couture may be one of the price-ier sushi places among the many cheaper alternatives in the area. However, I can vouch that Sushi Couture serves the best sushi in The Annex and its totally worth to spend a little…

The Left Bank @ Buffalo

The Left Bank is hands down one of my top 5 favourite restaurants of all time. Ever since my recent visit, I’ve been dying to come back – hopefully to indulge in at least everything on their menu. This is really rare for me – but my experience here was just unbelievable and the food was beyond fantastic. We walked in with high expectations and were not disappointed at all! The Left Bank is a cozy…

Poutine @ Firepit

So I definitely feel my cholesterol rising because for the past 2 weeks I’ve been on some insane poutine craze. Hope it ends soon before I suffer from a heart attack – my poor body needs some rest =( Anyways, Firepit is an affordable family restaurant located at the intersections of Hurontario & Brittania in Mississauga. They specialize in providing a variety of fast foods serving burgers, sandwiches, souvlak etc. Unfortunately, every time I’ve been only able to…

Chicago Style Pizza Shack

To be brutally honest, when this place was first suggested, I was hesitant because I wanted to stay as from away from pizza as I could after stuffing my face with it for 4 years while studying in Waterloo.  However, I’m uber glad I did visit here because Chicago Style Pizza has pretty much changed the way I think about pizza now – more specifically – Deep Dish Pizza! This hidden gem, tucked away in Hamilton, is…

COME AND GET IT!

Everyone seriously needs to COME AND GET IT! (@ComeAndGetIt416) … NOW! =p For those that don’t know me, I am a poutine fanatic. I am always thinking, reading and on the lookout for restaurants that serve killer poutine! And so last week, when I came across a foodie friend of mine, Mary Chan‘s (@citrusblack) post about the Pork Belly Poutine she had at Come And Get It – I knew this was my next stop! =D…

Cafe Mania!

I visited Cafe Mania just 2 weeks ago with a friend and it wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be. Perhaps I’ve read many good things about the place so I walked in with higher expectations. Cafe Mania definitely lacks service. And in terms of their desserts, I thought it was alright but I’ve had better. Perhaps, I just dropped by at the wrong time? Anyways, Service was a bit slow. They had…

Dinner @ Fin Izakaya

Fin Izakaya (@FinIzakaya) located near the intersections of Yonge St & Eglinton Ave, is a type of Japanese pub that serves tapa dishes (small dishes) presented in an appealing manner. – Before visiting Fin Izakaya, I have read a bunch of mixed reviews so I didn’t know what to expect. Some dishes were better than others – so it wasn’t all too bad. The great thing about Fin Izakaya is that they accept reservations and there is also…

Awesome meal at Barque Smokehouse!

Barque Smokehouse (@barquebbq) is one of 2011’s new best restaurants – and is well worth the visit! Located in the Roncesvalles Village, Barques‘ is a smokehouse that brings out the best classic southern barbeque that you can find in the area. Barque Smokehouse accepts reservations but leaves 1/3 of the restaurant for walk in customers. I arrived with IL on a Sunday evening around 5:30pm, attempted to make reservations 2 days prior but no luck. So…

First Ever Home Made Feast! =D

There aren’t that many people that have ever eaten what I’ve cooked before. The reason being is that I suck at it (haha – just kidding!) … I’m just somewhat lazy when it comes to cooking and the whole idea of grocery shopping & preparation tires me out especially since I have to study study study at night! But once in a blue moon I come out of the closet and prepare a little feast!…
