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….

The Ten Spot Gel Mani/Pedi Review

Hair done, nails done, everything ‘did.  Yup, it’s in your head now. I try not to be too high maintenance when it comes to beauty upkeep, but the one thing that is a must for me is having my nails done.  I’m one of those weird people that is quite conscious of their hands.  God…

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…

Drinks at Alo Restaurant

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…

Brunch at 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…

Dinner at 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…

Dinner at Saku Sushi

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…

Dinner at 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…

Dinner at 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…
