Jinya Ramen Bar

Located on Church Street, Jinya Ramen Bar was a restaurant that caught my eye when I was making my way to work. One day, I decided to make my visit here and try out a new ramen spot for foodie utopia. The inside seemed promising, the layout of the restaurant looked authentic and there were a…

Daily Sushi

Daily Sushi was a discovery I made for myself when I was craving Japanese food during my lunch break, and I needed to grab something quick nearby. Usually I do takeout with this restaurant, but because my boyfriend came by during my lunch break, I had to sit in and get another foodie blog for…

Top Sushi

Top Sushi is a place nearby my campus which I had tried once before, but wasn’t too fond of its taste. However, this was when I made my visit about 3 years ago, so I decided to give it another chance. Upon entry, the place was actually better renovated. I remember when I went to…

Kyoto Japanese House

Back another Saturday evening with a foodie utopian blog post for you! Kyoto House was a popular choice of many Torontonians for some time who were looking for some all you can eat sushi in the downtown core. My boyfriend and I made a visit here after a day of classes, feeling hungry as ever for…

Don Don Izakaya

One evening, after another fun-filled day, my partner and I were feeling hungry, but not too hungry. What’s a better way of snacking other than going to an izakaya? Specifically, Don Don Izakaya on Dundas made its call to us that evening for some great Japanese tapas and authentic ambiance.  We entered, and like any izakaya it…

Sushi Market Kensington

Kensington Market is known for its many eats and takeouts. Upon a spontaneous visit to Kensington Market, my boyfriend and I decided to go to a spot found by sight called Sushi Market. I was enticed by their vibrant signs and authentic look amidst the marketplace.  We had some prior engagements to attend to, but we…

Manpuku

This restaurant was probably my greatest discovery in fourth year – thanks to a close friend of mine who suggested this modern Japanese eatery to me. Manpuku is an authentic Japanese cuisine restaurant which offers the finest of udons, takoyakis and many more, for absolutely insane cheap prices. Not only is it cheap, but it was also…

Yuzu No Hana

Foodie utopia is back with another special blog post – I’m a bit behind, but this was a special night for my boyfriend and I, as we celebrated our 5 months together with an evening at Yuzu No Hana, a trendy Japanese restaurant which caught my eye from blogto.  Yuzu No Hana was an upscale Japanese modern…

Gonoe Sushi

Gonoe Sushi was a visit I made, twice in total now, on Queen’s Quay. If you’re looking for authentic ambiance as well as great taste, Gonoe is the perfect spot for you. It’s also pleasant that it’s right by the Harbourfront, so once you finish eating some delicious sushi, you can take a walk along…

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…
