Kitchen 76 @ Two Sisters Vineyard

A few weekends ago, my friends and I decided to trek out to Niagara on the Lake to try Jet Boating (for the first time) & attend the Lavendar Festival. On the agenda for the day, we also scheduled an afternoon visit to Kitchen 76 @ Two Sisters Vineyard. Two Sisters Vineyard is Niagara’s newest premium winery of about 76…

DEEP DISH PIZZA @ Chicago Style Pizza

Chicago Style Pizza is a hole in the wall restaurant tucked away in the midst of Hamilton. I rarely travel to Hamilton and I’m not too sure of many restaurants that offer Deep Dish Pizza in the GTA. But when someone offers to drive you to Hamilton to check out deep dish pizza – you can’t really say no to that haha! Trust me,…

Italian night at Francobollo in North York!

Although Francobollo may be slightly tucked away in North York, this fine dining Italian restaurant is definitely a go-to spot for many locals. We couldn’t help but notice the familiar faces to the wait staff that kept filling the restaurant throughout the course of our dinner. Francobollo, which opened its doors back in December 2014, is a modern, casual neighbourhood…

Arriba Restaurant

Last Saturday, I was invited by a few friends to watch the Jays Home Opener Weekend game! Pretty exciting but get this… we were actually watching the game from our own executive suite with our own private kitchen, bathroom, with unlimited healthy and not so healthy foods & drinks that was constantly being replenished – to top it off with…

Blu Ristorante

When my friend randomly suggested Blu Ristorante (@BluRistorante) for an Italian dinner while we were shopping in the Yorkville area, I was quite excited yet perplexed. Italian food – specifically pasta is something that I always crave for so I never say nooo. Yet, I was feeling perplexed because I usually do all my research before heading to any restaurants – so…

Scaddabush @ Yonge & Gerrard

After recently visiting Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar (@Scaddabush)‘s  first location in Square One, Mississauga not too long ago, they promptly opened a second location 2 weeks ago two blocks away from the Eaton Center.  Here’s the thing: I had two completely different dining experiences at the different locations. My first experience at the Square One location was a relaxing –…

Carisma

When my friend first told me her birthday dinner was being held at Carisma (@Carisma_73KingE), my initial reaction was something along the lines of “what?! where is this place…?!” This dinner was pretty interesting in the sense that our party of 12 (mainly consisted of foodies)  did not have a single person that had ever heard of Carisma. So I guess…

&Co Resto Bar

Before my trip to Hong Kong, I had the pleasure of attending a tasting menu at &Co Resto Bar (@AndCoRestoBar), located in Mississauga, just steps from Square One Shopping Mall. &Company Resto Bar is a trendy, “New-American” inspired supper club that also happens to be the only rooftop patio in the city. They’re a unique kind of resto in that they…

Grazie Ristorante

I’m never in the Yonge and Eglinton area. But when my best friend from Korea (who was only visiting Toronto for a few days) told me she was madly craving for pasta(s), my mind went totally blank!  Believe it or not this was rather a difficult task narrowing it down to just ONE Italian restaurant that serves amazing pastas. So…

Menu Tasting @ Alimento Fine Food Emporium

A few months back, Stella (@foodieyu) from Foodjunkiechronicles.net invited me to a menu tasting at Bar Mozza inside Alimento Fine Food Emporium along King street West. Alimento Find Food Emporium is actually an Italian “grocery store” that focuses on mainly selling fine Cheese. On the other side of this store is a gorgeous space for the dining section, Bar Mozza, where we…

Gusto 101

The very first time I heard of Gusto 101 (@Gusto101TO) was when a few foodies tweeted that Gusto 101 had forbidden that they take any photographs inside the restaurant. Seriously?? So when my friends suggested they wanted to dine here, I was totally on board to see what was so pretentious about this place that they didn’t allow a few happy customers to…

Parts & Labour – Summerlicious

Parts & Labour (@partsnlabour) has been on my radar for quite some time now. And when I found out that they had participated in Summerlicious (@liciousTO) this year- I was quite excited! Parts & Labour – located in the far west end of downtown Toronto, in Parkdale, first opened back in 2010 and is overseen by Chef Matthew Matheso (@mattydeathbro).  So on a Wednesday night,…
