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…

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…

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.…

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…

Located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Financial District, The Gabardine serves great comfort food for both lunch and dinner. This resto has been “in the queue” for me for quite some…

New City Restaurant

There are so many “Hong Kong style cafes” located in Markham area to choose from but I always end up going back to New City Restaurant  [新城市餐廳]. The reason being is that New City NEVER DISAPPOINTS hence why I’ve been back numerous times =D New City is extremely busy during lunch / late afternoon on weekends (haven’t been during weekdays). I…

Art Square Cafe

I tend to opt out of desserts at restaurants because I usually save my tummy for ice cream / crepes/ waffles / cakes etc. at other places. I mean obviously I would stay at the restaurant for dessert if it was something that people HIGHLY RECOMMENDED or something from the dessert menu seemed INTRIGUING for me to stay. (which rarely…

Bymark – Winterlicious

Bymark Restaurant (@BymarkDowntown) is the second restaurant I visited for Winterlicious. Bymark has actually topped my list for restaurants to visit for a while.  Not only was I intrigued by  the overwhelming choices on their Licious menu  but also so many foodies have raved about this restaurant so I knew I just couldn’t let this opportunity pass. With that in mind, I was tres excited to drag…
