Summerlicious @ Hot House Cafe

So it’s that time of the year again, as you can probably guess, Summerlicious is back! So throughout the past years, I’ve only done Licious dinners and probably just one lunch years back.

Marben

I heart Marben¬†(@MarbenResto). Ever since my visit here 2 weeks ago, I’ve been non-stop thinking about their mushroom risotto and lobster¬†guacamole.

The Harbord Room

A month or two ago, Vickie (@kiki_bff) organized a tweet up for a bunch of us foodies to meet up at The Harbord Room.
