Review of Noce Restaurant

If you’ve asked me for a restaurant recommendation lately, I’ve probably suggested you try Noce.  Over the last year I’ve been there a few times, both spontaneously and for official tastings.  Each time I have left more impressed with the food, the team and their commitment to creating an authentic Italian dining experience in Toronto….

Baked Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

It feels like over the last few years the eggplant has gotten a bad rap.  And you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about, thank you very much cellphone emojis.  However, I digress, and will continue on about my post about the eggplant, the VEGETABLE. The eggplant can be a very divisive dish. It feels like…

Dinner at Mira Restaurant

If I was a betting girl, I would say that the next food trend to hit Toronto is going to be Peruvian food.  Not only have I been seeing small pop ups featuring this eclectic cuisine, but some bigger restaurants have also been hitting the scene recently.  More specifically, the trend seems to be focused…

Dinner at Do Not Disturb (CLOSED)

When someone tells me that I will want to “order everything on the menu”, I can’t help but get a little excited about what’s in store for dinner. Do Not Disturb is appropriately (and hilariously) located inside The Beverley Hotel at Queen and John.  I’ve been to this boutique hotel for drinks on their adorable…

Mushroom Risotto Recipe

Risotto might actually be one of my favourite foods.  Mushroom risotto to be specific.  There’s just something about the creamy, peppery, earthy flavours that makes it the perfect comfort food.  It’s no coincidence that you will find risotto in my regular dinner rotation this season especially with these sub-zero temperatures. I first tried this recipe…

One Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken & Rice Recipe

I haven’t done a recipe post in a while and seeing as this is the 2nd time I am making this particular dish, it felt like a good time to share it with all of you.  I guess you can say I live the quintessential downtown life – I work, I socialize and probably spend…

Dinner at Planta

My first blog post of 2017! If only you could see how long my list has grown.  I’ve had the chance to cross a few off so clearly I’m just behind in telling you about my experiences.  I’m going to start out with the most recent adventure which took me and two of my long-time…

Dinner at Amsterdam Brewhouse

It’s officially August which means that our Canadian Summer is slowly coming to an end.  My fingers are crossed on the warm weather carrying over in September since itI feel like I haven’t really had a chance to ENJOY the summer.  So in continuing my Patio Pursuits series I’ve been trying to suggest places with…

Dinner at Sidecar Restaurant

Patio, wine, steak.  Pretty much sums up my recipe for the perfect summer.  Sidecar is one of my staples in the sense that I probably eat here at least once a month.  Not just out of convenience since its down the street from my office but they make a pretty kick ass steak frites.  They…

Dinner at Odd Seoul

One of my best friends was visiting from the UK (she of course has lived in Toronto) but I got to take her around the city so she could see it through my eyes.  It was an unnecessarily cold and rainy Monday in March but we made the most of it with a boozy lunch,…
