Fring’s

It’s been awhile sine I’ve gotten to go on a foodie excursion where I could dress up and dine fancy – and so the occasion of my company’s birthday called for a visit to Toronto’s Own Drake Legacy – Fring’s. I have seen so many pictures of this restaurant – particularly the bright and vibrant “6 On…

The Captain’s Boil

FOODIE UTOPIANS! I’m so sorry for being gone for so long! It’s been one heck of a ride with completing my third year at UofT – that I haven’t been able to come back to foodie utopia, take a deep breath, and take a break from all the stress and struggles of life. You know what…

Spice Route

Entering a mysterious ambiance right in the heart of downtown – On King Street West of Spadina, Spice Route is a rare find which offers a captivating yet impressive dining experience. This was an excursion I made with some good company once my official first week back at UofT came to its conclusion (and a…

Holt’s Cafe

In the heart of Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street – a hidden gem for a fancy appetite can be found. Despite making frequent visits to Holt Renfrew back when I used to live in Yorkville, I have never discovered Holt’s Cafe until my company made this suggestion over a chat message. Willingly, one Monday evening we…

Nota Bene

Upon a suggestion of a friend who told me about Nota Bene on Queen Street, I decided that I would have a taste of it for the first time when I was in Toronto. Based on my prior research, they had an offering of a 6 course meal for their “Taste of August” special, so that’s…

Soco Kitchen + Bar

Bremner + Lower Simcoe One evening out with a friend, we were walking along the harbour and then found ourselves wandering through the streets of Toronto. Closer by my area, we actually stumbled upon Soco Kitchen and Bar which looked quite extravagant and seemed to be decently crowded. Spontaneously we decided to have dinner there.   The Entrance! We…

Canoe Restaurant

54 Floors Up: Dining in Style In the heart of downtown’s financial district, up on the 54th floor of the TD Bank Tower – Canoe serves only the fanciest to its consumers. My cousin, Alex, wanted us to try out their Wine and Cheese selection, just for taste and for the experience. I was ecstatic and looked forward…

The Burger’s Priest

For Fresh, On-The-Grill, Burgers The Burger’s Priest is a burger franchise that is famously known by many. Time and time again, my friends have recommended this place and promised it would have everything they could possibly offer in a burger. One afternoon when my mom and I were spending the week downtown together, I decided to…

Dirty Bird Kensington

Chicken + Waffle Galore! On an absolutely fabulous, sunny day, I had the chance to meet up with a friend of mine from first year whom I haven’t seen since, but finally got to see her today. Siti and I have always kept in contact via social media, and when I stumbled upon one of her…

Amsterdam Brewhouse

On The Lake The Amsterdam Brewhouse was a visit I made on a beautiful Friday afternoon with my friend, Antonino, on his recommendation. It was a casual, vivid and bright patio dining area (although there was also an indoor sitting area – but no one would want to be outside on a day like when I…

W Burger Bar

Yonge and College Burgers With Family! It was Toronto Men’s Fashion Week – and my eldest cousin invited me to watch the Jaan Choxi Show at College Park. It was a spectacular show! Soon after we had our fill of fashionistas and designer clothing, we made our way to a new spot for me, and…
