Fabbrica

Last week, I went to Fabbrica in North York with my team at work. It is one of Mark McEwan’s restaurants and located right across the McEwan grocery store in North York. We started with some appetizers including some fries with truffle and grana padano cheese. They were so addictive! We also had some warm…

Brunch @ Chadwick’s

Last weekend, Nash and I had brunch at Chadwick’s where they have you can Build-A-Benny, so we both did. I picked the strangest ingredients on mine: Queso frito (fried cheese), jamon chino (chinese sausage) and instead of bread I had tortilla chips. I also had half salad and half potatos on the side. Weirdly, it all…

Wilbur Mexicana

I went to Wilbur Mexicana recently, home of a hot sauce and salsa bar.  Apparently, it is temporarily closed at the moment to prepare for kitchen repairs, but I went before that happened. I was unwinding for the evening so I had a Paloma with Tromba, Aperol, grapefruit and soda. My choice of tacos were: Carne asada…

Dolly’s Filipino Mojito Bar

I ordered a small Cubano Mojito with Bacardi Maestro white oak rum, fresh cane juice (with a stalk of…

The 3 Brewers

I went to a 3 Brewers finally this week. The one near the Eaton’s Centre is huge! Going to the bathroom is like navigating a labyrinth. Anyways, I couldn’t go there without ordering a bunch of beers so I had the Traditional Et Cetera which was 4 4oz tasters of their White, Blonde, Amber and Brown beers. I liked…

Barrio Cerveceria

Recently, I went to Barrio Cerveceria, a Mexican restaurant in Leslieville with a friend. We began with an order of Ole Ole Guacomole. The guacamole was decent. I think it was supposed to have pico de gallo but I didn’t really see any. Next we had the Hole Mole!, a tuna tostada made of tuna tartare, butter lettuce, beans pureé,…

Burgatory Birthday

For Nash’s annual burger birthday we checked out Burgatory which is located at the former home of Hey Meatball! I ordered the Envy Burger which had fried egg, tomato jam, guacomole, tortilla chips. It was not too heavy and I loved the tomato jam. Nash had the Wrath Burger: Hell Sauce (homemade roasted poblano and chili de arbol sauce), pickled…
