Alo

It was a cold, rainy (maybe romantic?) and wet Thursday when I found myself in the cozy, candlelit bar of Alo.  A few good friends and I had just finished a gluttonous dinner of authentic Chinese food and we were looking for a place to indulge in a few tasty libations.  We started to make…

The Brunch Buzz – Cafe Neon

I’m surprised it took me this long to write a new brunch post seeing as it’s by far my favourite thing to do on the weekend.  Aside from sleeping in.  Although it’s probably because I’m so hungry by the time we get to brunch that I forget to take pictures and then there goes the plan…

Electric Mud BBQ

Sigh.  BBQ.  Brings to mind the warm summer breeze, the smell of freshly cut grass and sitting outside on the patio enjoying good times with good friends.  Personally I don’t believe there is a particular season for BBQ but you can’t deny that summer is not the same without it. On what was probably one…

Saku

Sushi is probably something that I need at least once a week.  I love it.  Its quick, inexpensive, I never feel ridiculously full and I get my intake of fish which is not always my go to meal choice.  I finally got a chance to go to the newly opened Saku Sushi on Queen Street…

Rickshaw Bar

My favourite thing about my job is the people that I have had the joy to cross paths with.  Many of them are not just my co-workers but people that I genuinely enjoy spending time with outside of our office.  They also love food.  So, it was the perfect time to resurrect a dinner club…

Nana

I can’t help it, I had this song in my head the moment we decided to go to Nana.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0Gu_Yh_keE Now you will too. So here’s the reality of blogging when you’re not making a profit and do it simply for the fun of it.  You get lazy.  There have been many a times where…

Miss Thing’s

When I think of Hawaii I’m instantly transported to breath taking sunsets, the warm sweet breeze, swaying palm trees and a vibe of just pure unadulterated relaxation.  Paradise indeed.  Nice to know that our little city has its own taste of the tropical island in the way of Miss Thing’s Bar on Queen West West…

Loka

I found myself at Loka on this rainy Saturday night when a good friend of mine and I were headed out for a long overdue catch up sesh.  She suggested Loka and coincidentally it had popped up on my newsfeed as a newly opened resto in the city.  The stars were aligned. If you haven’t…

Bar Fancy

You fancy huh?  Sorry, I couldn’t get that part of the song out of my head once we decided to venture out to Bar Fancy for dinner.  This spot has been on my list ever since it made Toronto Life’s Best Restaurants of 2015 list.  So the first thing I did of course was google…

Flashback Friday – Lisa Marie

Welcome to one of my new weekly features – Flashback Friday! I figured, what was the point of collecting all these blog posts (really amazing posts tee-hee!) if I couldn’t use them again!  As much as I revel in the thrill of discovering a new place, nothing makes me more excited then knowing its one…

Lisa Marie

Ever since moving to the city, it feels so much easier to be spontaneous and just see where the day/night takes you.  Sometimes its a relaxing day doing life things at home and other days its day time galavanting and night time resto/bar hopping.  I guess that’s how this evening shaped up when I realized…
