Brunch @ Fat Pasha

Nash and I always go for brunch on New Years and we never make reservations. We actually walked into a few of our favourite spots but we woke up late and they were all full. I’ve never been to Fat Pasha but they had seats so that is where we ended up! Their specialty is…

San Diego Coffee: Dutch Chocolate

My sister gifted me a Bodum French Press set for Christmas that has a coffee bean grinder and hot water boiler. Now I’m excited to explore the world of coffee beans. My first bag was San Diego Coffee’s “Dutch Chocolate” flavour, that I ordered on Amazon. It’s a Medium Roast of 100% Arabica beans. Though…

Momofuku Shoto

Nash and I always book an indulgent dinner when we’re celebrating something, so we decided on Momofuku Shoto for our Christmas date. There’s no à la carte menu, only a tasting menu for $120, full of surprises if you’ve never been. We were seated with others around an open kitchen where we curiously watched as the chefs in…

My First Poké at Big Tuna

I tried Hawaiian Poké for the first time this week at Big Tune Poké Bar. I had the Big Katuna with Japanese rice. It had crunchy veggies and ponzu flavoured fresh tuna. I added avocado for $1 extra. It was all super fresh tasting! The only thing I was slightly confused about was there seemed…

Ubering Love Chix 

This week, there has been some cold snowy weather. One of the nights was so bad that my commute lasted over two hours. When I got home, I didn’t want to cook so I opened up my Uber Eats app. The road conditions were so terrible, there weren’t many choices that night. However, I learned…

Wonton Pizza Pockets

Holiday potlucks are where I bring my Pinterest boards to life. I found an easy recipe for some Pizza Muffins from The Recipe Rebel and tested it out! This recipe doesn’t require too many ingredients. I picked up a fancy jar of salsa, pepperoni, mozzarella, peppers and wonton wrappers. You can substitute the cheese, meat and…

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 was sad when Whippoorwill closed down as they were home to some great cocktails. However, I went to unwind at it’s replacement Dolly’s Mojito Filipino Bar last week and thought it lived up to the location. I ordered a small Cubano Mojito with Bacardi Maestro white oak rum, fresh cane juice (with a stalk of…
