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…

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…

Scarpetta – Winterlicious

Scarpetta is an upscale Italian restaurant located within the Thompson Hotel along King Street Village. Celebrity Chef Scott Conant, oversees all…

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…

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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

Khao San Road
