Charidise

Foodie utopia has gone to some new spots around the downtown core of Toronto – today I bring to you another excursion to the Baldwin Village – an excursion I took one afternoon for lunch, before my evening class I was attending for the summer. Charidise offers authentic Taiwanese cuisine. I’ve seen many of my classmates/friends…

Upper Deck By Fran’s

Foodie Utopia is back this summer with a new excursion, featuring a neat patio spot for Torontonians on College Street. Upper Deck By Fran’s is a classic, vibrant spot with a patio sit-in for dining, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Upper Deck has all types of contemporary Canadian cuisine for customers to enjoy, as…

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…

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…

Dineen Coffee Co.

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about Toronto’s very own coffee shops. Another goal for me this summer is to blog more about the distinct cafe spots that you can explore, so you can skip that boring cup of Starbucks or Timmy’s and settle in a more pleasurable cafe experience with a quality cup of coffee,…

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…

Bryan’s B.B.Q

Ending the reading week and entering the familiar city again, I had the honour of exploring a new establishment in Koreatown – an area in Toronto that I have not really explored so much, but have always been enticed by the Korean authenticity of the businesses. One in particular that we just happened to drive…

Copacabana

Happy (Post) Valentine’s Day fellow Foodie Utopians! A couple of nights ago, I had a fabulous night at Copacabana – a Brazilian Steakhouse in the heart of Toronto (located on Adelaide) where my company and I wined and dined in a beautifully orchestrated atmosphere and enjoyed some fabulous meats and buffet.   Upon arrival, the…

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…

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…

Light Café

Light Café is a Taiwanese inspired café offering a great selection of different foods and drinks with a gourmet feel and a contemporary twist. It’s located in Baldwin Village – an area that I have become very fond of because of its close proximity to campus as well as the great variety of choices for…
