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.…

Latin World

I’ve always walked past Latin World and seen it packed full of people who’ve probably been going there for years. It’s like a secret local spot that hasn’t been taken over by hipsters. Inside it is like a grocery store that also serves food. For $10, I got 4 fish tacos. They also have like…

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka (Toronto)

Ramen is such a comforting winter dish, and with so many places in Toronto, I’m eager to find the best broth. I think my favourite so far is Hakkaido Ramen Santouka. I went there for the first time yesterday because the line always looked too long, but we were lucky to be seated within five…

Calii Love

Today before class I stopped by Calii Love, a poké restaurant and café on King West. Everything had cute adjective names. I ordered the Humble Bowl which had a generous amount of tuna, seaweed, onion, rice, sauce. I added nori, wasabi peas and this herb that they said helped with digestion. The fish was super…
