REVIEW | Fresh & delicious sushi-only omakase at Yasu

Just over a year ago, Yasu Sushi Bar opened in Harbord Village, sending a buzz around Toronto about the newest spot for the best nigiri.  We, of course were intrigued and couldn't wait to try it - what took us so long, right? Finally, we made reservations and experience the sushi-only omakase at Yasu, first hand.

Omakase translates to a meal, comprised of Chef's selections.  Yasu offers an 18-course Chef-selected nigiri meal with a dessert at the end.

REVIEW | New menus to get your brunch, lunch & dinner on at Queen West's Gladstone Hotel's Cafe

Queen street is one Toronto's streets that has so much to offer, not just for tourists but for locals as well. With charm, style, and plenty of shops and parks to take a stop by, you will find something new every time you take a walk through all the neighbourhoods branching off it.  Celebrating its 126th birthday, The Gladstone Hotel is definitely not a stranger to Torontonians as you have probably visited for food, drinks or even a staycation!  Last week, I stopped by for dinner at the hotel's cafe - for the first time!

REVIEW | Kleinburg's The Doctor's House introduces the newly renovated XXI Chophouse serving

To be honest, when I first heard someone mention The Doctor's House in Kleinburg, I had no idea what they were talking about. Then someone mentioned a cute white building in a quaint neighbourhood and I became even more confused. It's a good thing we were invited to experience XXI Chophouse and I'll never look back.

LAUNCH | Savoury & Sweet Crepes at Etobicoke's new Blinco's Crepes & Coffee

I'm a big fan of crepes, especially savoury crepes! When I heard about Blinco's Crepes & Coffee opening just a few blocks away from me, I couldn't wait to try it out.  Blinco's had its grand opening just yesterday so it's really new to the neighbourhood. If you're in Etobicoke like myself, this may become your new crepe spot.

Happy weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying the amazing weather in Toronto - it's about time, right?

I'm talking about The Drake Hotel.
