Hokkaido Satouka Ramen

Ramen has grown in its popularity around the downtown core – and its prominence in the city is endless. However, it’s often hard to find the right, authentic taste to transport you to a true Japanese dining experience – and Hokkaido Satouka Ramen did just that for me. I have always been wanting to try this…

Mi-Ne Sushi

A couple of hours prior to deciding to go to Mi-Ne Sushi, I had my Friday off in the heart of downtown – meeting up with a close friend who I’ve known since my elementary school days. With the help of exchanging messages on Messenger, along with some handy text messages, I somehow managed to get in contact…

Kuni Sushi Ya

Let me give you a brief rundown on my prior events before deciding spontaneously to try something new of the All-You-Can-Eat variety: Monday, December 12th 2016: 8:30am-8:40am: I had commuted to Union Station in hopes of catching the U line to get to my 9 am health studies exam on time. NOPE. Cancellations due to a…

Poke Guys

Poke Guys was an excursion made one sunny afternoon in an attempt to try some “Hawaiian” cuisine. Hawaii is my favourite place in the world, and so I would say I have a familiarity with their cuisine, which seems to clash with Japanese style influences (that’s why I put this post under Japanese!). With one…

Kenzo

Kenzo was a spontaneous venture on Yonge Street after an attempted excursion to Poke Guys unfortunately flopped. It was so popular that they had to close for the remainder of the day when my company and I reached their joint. That’s why we found ourselves at Kenzo instead, which happen to be nearby. This change in…

Saku Toronto

Quality, Fresh and Perfect Amount Being currently located in the downtown core, I had the privilege of exploring many Japanese restaurants. I saw one of my friends post on her Instagram visiting Saku, and I fell in love with the photos I saw. Determined, I decided one afternoon that my girl friends and I would go…

Shogun Japanese Restaurant

Great Cuisine on Cumberland Street! The Shogun Japanese Restaurant was a place that I have made various visits to, but never had the chance to document it here on Foodie Utopia! On my visit there for my friend Jacob’s birthday treat, I managed to document our visit there for all my viewers here on Foodie Utopia!…

One Hour

Lunch on Spadina Your fellow blogger Samantha here with an all new look into a new visit! One Hour was a place that I have heard about time and time again, and made this visit a few days ago with my friend, Johnson – who was convinced to take a visit here. Completely low-key, and truly…

Tanaka Sushi

Good Food, Not-So-Good Service Richmond Hill is known for their variety of different restaurants around the area – ranging from their Chinese, Japanese and Korean selections. Today, my family and I paid a long awaited visit to Tanaka Sushi, a visit I have made with my family back when I was only a child. Spontaneity…

Aka Fusion Teppan

Bloor Street West Excursion Aka Fusion Teppan was a suggestion given by my brother, who must have ate here with friends one time, but only got to introduce it to me recently. Since my mom was downtown for the evening, we made a walk from Yorkville onto Bloor Street West, where Aka is located. Aka…

Yamato Yorkville

Teppanyaki in Yorkville Teppanyaki is a well known art of Japanese cuisine – where a Japanese dish of meats, fish, seafood or some combination of all are fried with vegetables on a hot steel plate forming the center of the dining table. At Yamato in Yorkville, my mom, brother and I had to the chance to…

Big Sushi

For those with “Big” Appetites It’s Samantha, back with the topic of none other than FOOD. And not just any food, but probably my favourite type of cuisine – Japanese cuisine! Entering the reading week has allowed me to reminisce on the old excursions I made with many friends, and I’m slowly documenting all the…
