Brunch is a very popular weekend activity in the city of Toronto. The typical brunch options include your go-to eggs benedict and pancakes dishes, so it’s rare for restaurants to be able to successfully put a spin on brunch. It’s even more rare for restaurants to successfully pull off southern BBQ style brunch, but The Carbon Bar is definitely able to pull it off. A highlight of the brunch menu at The Carbon Bar includes their version of Chicken & Waffles. The chicken is deep fried with buttermilk to give it a perfect crunchy exterior, while retaining very juicy innards. The citrus crema does aRead More →

What do you get, when you assemble some of Toronto’s most hyped restaurant chefs & baristas? You get Assembly Chef’s Hall, where 17 chefs from some of Toronto’s hottest restaurants serve up their signature dishes! The 18th spot acts as a rotational pop-up for local & visiting chefs to test new concepts. Some highlights from the launch party include: 1. Mini Bara-Chirashi from Shari, by Chef Jackie Lin. We were pleasantly surprised by the freshness of the sashimi but a bit alarmed by the high prices for each bowl of chirashi – hopefully they’ll be able to maintain the quality once Assembly Chef’s Hall isRead More →

Menya Fuji Ramen

At Yonge and Finch in Toronto, change is constant amidst the restaurants and businesses that line the area. The latest addition to the neighbourhood is Menya Fuji, an unassuming, simple Japanese restaurant focused on ramen. Menya Fuji offers a number of appetizers to get started. The takoyaki dish come in an order of 5. Each one is packed with 2 pieces of octopus (!!) within a crispy exterior, however the inside is quite doughy. The chicken karaage was very juicy with a thick crispy skin. Each piece was quite large and tender. We tried the Tonkotsu Shio ramen which is a pork bone broth with aRead More →

The Pint

Hailing all the way from Edmonton, The Pint has opened up shop in Toronto with their newest location situated merely steps away from the Rogers Centre. Replacing the previous tenant Baton Rouge, The Pint is a massive restaurant and sports bar that houses more than 700 seats and an outdoor patio as well! We were fortunate enough to be invited to their media event, to sample a bit of their food and drinks. Their menu boasts over 40 flavors of chicken wings, and also has 40 different draughts available. However, due to it being a media event, we were unable to sample all of theirRead More →

Origination Noodle

Origination Noodle House has been a staple of the noodle scene for a few years now in downtown Toronto. This is their first foray into the Scarborough neighborhood, with a new restaurant located on Silver Star Boulevard, near the Milliken GO station. Origination Noodle House is somewhat special, as they specialize in making noodles from the Yunnan province of China, specifically a style called “Crossing-the-Bridge”. This type of noodle is different from what you would expect, as the ingredients are prepared separately from the soup base. Once the dish is ready to be served, the soup is cooked and the ingredients are added immediately toRead More →

DazzlingCafeInterior2

Originally from Taiwan, Dazzling Café North York, also known as Dazzling Café Pearl, is the second Dazzling Café to open in Canada. The Toronto location follows the Vancouver location opening just by one week. The restaurant has recently extended their hours to serve lunch from 11:30am.   Each Dazzling Café around the world has its own colour theme, while staying true to the brand’s key elements such as the bunny ear chairs and other featured furniture and décor. The color theme for the North York location is pink and grey, chosen by the Shini, the owner. This location also boasts a large space, with aRead More →

RectoryCafe11

Situated on Ward’s Island by the boardwalk, The Rectory Café is a cozy, picturesque restaurant with a cottage feel. The Rectory was a residence built in 1948 and is one of the last original buildings still remaining on the island since Metro Toronto’s razing of the island in the 1960s. The restaurant boasts a large patio with direct views of Lake Ontario and the Leslie Spit. Rectory had been a regular spot for island locals and visitors, but unfortunately, due to the flooding in the summer of 2016, Rectory Café is set to close its doors for good after Thanksgiving. It’s incredible that just 20 minsRead More →

Game of Cheese Banner

From the head chef of Kaka All You Can Eat, a new cheese-inspired Japanese fusion restaurant has opened in the heart of Richmond Hill. We joined Chef Frank and team for an afternoon of demonstrations and good eats at the Game of Cheese. Game of Cheese was originally a restaurant featuring cheese fondue, however after considering some customer feedback they evolved their menu to include other Japanese-Italian fusion dishes that are comforting and affordable. Their menu offers 9 different types of pizza and 10 types of pasta with Asian-inspired flavours such as Chicken Kaarage Pizza, Seafood Omurice Pizza, and Seafood Linguine. Chef Frank provided aRead More →

There’s no doubt for many of us, Walmart is known as a one-stop shop for almost anything you need. But did you know you can also get quality groceries from Walmart? We had the opportunity to join Chef Graham Elliot and Walmart Canada for an evening of steak and tacos. We learned some great tips about making our own summer steak tacos and tasted for ourselves the quality of ingredients that Walmart offers. In the spirit of summer, when we arrived at the event we were immediately greeted with margaritas. After mingling and taking photos with Graham Elliot, he proceeded with his cooking demonstration andRead More →
