REVIEW | Golden Moon - Good Chinese food close to home

Chinese restaurants tend to come and go in Mississauga due to the increased competition from existing restaurants or from the sheer volume of new establishments that seem to be popping up. Golden Moon seems to be doing something right as they have been doing quite well in a not so great location that has seen its fair share of tenants in the past.

We’ve been there many times for dinner and every time the restaurant is usually pretty full which is always a good sign. Specializing in Chaozhou and Szechaun cuisine, Golden Moon offers quality food for great value although we have noticed that the portions are becoming smaller than they were before.

REVIEW | Best Dragon Seafood Restaurant

In my opinion, Chinese restaurants usually tend to give the most bang for your buck. You can usually walk out of the restaurant feeling full and satisfied without a deep hole in your pocket. Best Dragon Seafood Restaurant is no exception especially since it's known for its seafood.

LAUNCH | Brunch at Città, an urban Italian eatery in the City Place neighbourhood

Just 6 weeks ago, Città opened in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of CityPlace between Spadina Ave. and Bathurst St. on Fort York Blvd.  Nestled on the main floor of one of the many highrise buildings, this may just become the community's favourite brunch spot on the weekends or a lunch and dinner spot on weeknights!

REVIEW | What to expect & indulge in at Destingo for Winterlicious 2015

My first visit to Destingo was during Winterlicious last year (read review here) and I can't forget the experience because I fell in love with their tiramisu. This year, this Italian restaurant is offering up a Winterlicious menu once again so if you haven't been, it's a great opportunity to see what Destingo has to offer in a 3-course meal.
