Bobbie Sue’s Mac + Cheese 

Over the weekend, I went to Bobbie Sue’s Mac and Cheese Stand for the first time.   I ordered the Carbonara mac which had pancetta and grana padano. The pancetta gave it a saltiness and the cheese was like a parmesan from a different part of Italy. The dish was very flavouful. I only had…

Pizza Party at Superpoint

Recently, I had a work dinner at hip pizza joint, Superpoint. We did a set menu that featured something called a Pizza Party where pies kept coming. To start, we had a fried rice ball with red sauce and cheese. The garlic bread was heavenly, it was hard not to fill up on it. There…

TIO’s Urban Mexican

Tonight we happened to be in the Yonge & Eglington area looking for something to eat. Tio’s Urban Mexican looked like a cute spot so we decided to try it. We started with some chips, guac and pico de gallo. I liked that their chips were a mixture of potato and taro. To drink I…

Edoko

A quest for something to eat last weekend in Ottawa, landed us in Edoko Japanese Steakhouse. They have Teppanyaki and a regular menu. We opted for the regular menu because we weren’t sure if we had a lot of time to spend there. I had the Terriyaki Steak cooked medium rare served with noodles, hibachi…

The Scone Witch

I was in Ottawa for JUNO weekend and I couldn’t resist opening Zomato and looking up places to eat nearby. One of the highest rated places was The Scone Witch, which specializes in sandwiches out of scones. It was breakfast time when we went so I had The Eggwitch and a cup of Witch’s Brew…

Brunch @ Laylow

A few weekends ago, we ended up at Laylow, kind of by accident. We were trying to get into somewhere else that ended up packed, so we strolled a few doors down to the former location of Me & Mine. I had the Porchetta Eggs Benedict which was herb-roasted pulled porchetta on potato latkes, with two poached…

Brunch @ Love Chix

Yesterday was a super rainy day and our regular brunch place was packed so we headed to Love Chix instead. It’s location used to be the location of Farmer’s Daughter before it had to close down. I had a glass of “OJP Ya Know Me!” to start (orance juice & Prosecco). We all ordered poached…

Little Pig Hot Pot

My friends and I made the trip uptown to Little Pig Hot Pot. Hot Pot if you’ve never done it outside of your house before comes with a price tag. There’s a per person charge (around $25) as well as additional charges per soup. For our party of four people we had one bowl with…

The Skyline Restaurant

It was Valentine’s Day weekend and my friends and I made the mistake of trying to go out to eat and drink without previously making a reservation. We walked along Queen for a little bit and ended up in Skyline. I think it re-opened in the classic spot last year or so by Maggie Ruhl (Dakota…

Brunch @ Takht-e Tavoos

I recently went for a Persian brunch at Tavoos, owned by the same people as The Pomegranate. Persian Chai was served to us in a beautiful pot. To start, we had Zeitoon Parvardeh: green olives marinated in a sauce of walnuts, pomegranate molasses, garlic and mint. This was served with a light Persian flat bread.…
