The Gabardine

Almost a month ago, I ventured off to downtown Toronto after a busy work day to indulge in some good eats at The Gabardine (@thegabardine). 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 time due to all the hype about their infamous mac and cheese, so it was…

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 always end up waiting for less than 5 minutes at the door before being seated.…

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 happens lol) I remember going to Art Square Cafe after a particular dinner of eating…

Sicilian Sidewalk Cafe

Sicilian Sidewalk Cafe, located in Little Italy / Portugal Village, is a cozy cafe at the corner of College Street that I can always take refuge to whenever I happen to crave for desserts late at night! They offer a WIDE selection of goodies – their specialties being: Belgian waffles, Tartufo, Pannini, specialty coffee, ice cream crepes, cakes etc. I’ve been to Sicilian Sidewalk Cafe numerous times and they have an awesome patio during the summer. They open quite late – Sunday…

Grand Electric

Grand Electric (@grandelectricTO) is one of the newest hot spots to go to for good food and a great night out. Opened for about 3 months by former owners of The Black hoof, Grand Electric offers Mexican food serving yummy tacos & beer and loud music. I love restaurants that specialize in specific types of foods – and  with tacos being one of my favorites I knew I had to check this place out. Grand Electric opens at 6pm…

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 my friend along with me to indulge in a superb dinner =] Bymark Restaurant is…

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House specializes in Ramen noodles – Not your typical Western style pasta but rather a type of wheat noodle served in a meat or fish flavoured broth. There aren’t that many places that serve decent Ramen noodles in Toronto so Kenzo is probably your safest bet. I was shopping on Bloor and ended up  in the Annex. Despite the mixed reviews of Kenzo I decided to check it out anyways because I was craving…

Annona – Winterlicious

Annona Restaurant is the first of three restaurants I visited for Winterlicious 2012.  Annona Restaurant had always been on my list of places to visit but sadly I didn’t find their Winterlicious menu to be anything special. However, a foodie friend of mine had visited the day before and raved about it so I decided to make some last minute reservations =D Annona Restaurant is an award-winning restaurant, located in the beautiful appointed hotel of Park Hyatt…

Khao San Road

For a really long time, I have read & heard SO many good things about Khao San Road (@khaosanroadTO) and  have no idea why it took me this long to visit. And so I FINALLY trekked made my way downtown a few weeks ago for an awesome dinner with my friend. Usually, when I hear good reviews about a resto, I walk in with really high hopes and expectations and come out some what disappointed. But…

School Bakery & Cafe

A few weeks ago, I ventured off to the heart of Liberty Village to enjoy a delicious brunch at School Cafe & Bakery (@Schoolville). I woke up tres early on a sunny Saturday morning and arrived at School just before 9:30am to find that we were the second group to arrive. And moments later, a line starting to form behind us.Thank God we arrived early because during the whole drive up I was contemplating if it was really…

Ice ‘N Cake

Ice ‘N Cake gelato & patisserie (located inside at Shops @ Don Mills) is an European inspired dessert place serving gelato, ice cream, crepes and waffles!  Their decor and patio is very colourful and cute. The cake I ordered was very well presented  but a little on the expensive side…. I’m really picky about cheesecake and I definitely didn’t like the one I tried because I find that it was WAY too sweet and heavy –…

Hinote Sushi

When it comes to sushi restaurants in the Mississauga area, there are not that many decent places  to choose from. Over the years I’ve been disappointed countless times with the sushi being served in the area, whether it be all-you-can eat or just off their regular menu… Thankfully, a friend of mine had introduced me to Hinote Sushi. And ever since then, this hidden gem is one of my favourite sushi restaurants that I can always resort…

Jump

Here’s a quick post of Jump (O&B’s Restaurant) when I visited them during Summerlicious (@LiciousTO) for dinner. I had a mediocre experience here and don’t get me wrong, the food was pretty good but I didn’t find our particular server interested in serving us. Urgh! Throughout the course of dinner, our server wasn’t friendly at all, he had a serious look on his face the whole time,  he didn’t bother telling us the name of…
