Dessert Tasting @ Richmond Station

Richmond Station (@richmondstn) has always been on my radar of the many restaurants to visit in Toronto but just never found the opportunity to visit. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago when I found out my friend Carmen from Carmenhungry.com (@carmenhungry) is the pastry cook there! Pretty cool stuff to be working under the wing of Top Chef Canada’s winner Carl Heinrich right?…

Touhenboku Ramen

With all the sudden Ramen pop ups in Toronto for the past year, its still safe for me to say that NO – I’m not sick of eating ramen and YES – I will keep indulging in these deliciously hot yummy bowls of Ramen until my heart is content. But come on, especially with the extremely cold weather outside? who…

Belly Buster Submarines

Last week, I found some time after work hours to drop by Belly Buster Submarine (Twitter: @BellyBusterSub) (Instagram: @BellyBusterSub). This newly Submarine shop recently opened a second location on King Street West after their 1st very successful location in North Toronto. Over the years, they’ve build a solid relationship with (returning) customers from the belief of producing the freshest subs with the…

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…

So in preparation of their El Catrin Launch, Chef Calvez…

A LA KITCHEN

Every year for my mom’s birthday, we always end up at her favourite Shanghai-nese restaurant in Markham, A LA KITCHEN. Frankly speaking, I’m not entirely a fan of the service here (and it gets a little worse every visit) but the food is solid hence why we always end up coming back.  A LA KITCHEN is constantly packed whenever we visit (Saturday…

Shake Shack @ New York

On the very last day of my weekend trip to New York City,  I dragged my cousins with me to line up at Shake Shack (@shakeshack) first thing in the morning. Although they seemed to hate me during the wait (lol) , it was all worth it in the end when our food came! 😀 Thankfully our hotel was very close to…

Frank @ The AGO

So if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll notice I rarely blog about brunches. I can barely wake up in time for work during the week so getting up to go to brunch on my only day to sleep in is rather difficult. Anyways, for whatever reason my friend convinced me to do brunch last Saturday at Frank Restaurant, conveniently located inside…
