REVIEW | The Good Son

The Good Son has always been on our list of places to visit for one of three reasons:

1. We love the Queen West neighbourhood;
2. We've watched Chef Vittorio Colacitti's journey on Top chef Canada; and
3. We heard the food was amazing!

REVIEW | Hawthorne Food & Drink

I guess we're a little late for New Years Resolutions but if we're making changes to improve ourselves, who cares when we make it, right? Ever since we started this blog in 2014, we have been so fortunate to meet amazing people who share the same love for food as we do and have been to so many amazing restaurants in Toronto. This year for us will be about spending more time with the people we care about and doing things that give back to the community that we're so thankful to be a part of.

We were able to do just that by having dinner at Hawthorne Food & Drink with our foodie friends GoodFoodToronto and GoodFoodJess :)

RECIPES | Board Games, Wine & Fun Mexican Recipes

Happy New Year! How hard was it to go back to work after having that week long vacation? It's never enough when it comes to having free time during the holidays to spend time with friends and family, but c'est la vie, right?

It's still a bit cold to be out and about, so hosting a Game Night (board night, sports games, you name it) is a fun alternative. What’s our favourite game? Scrabble!

REVIEW | Brassaii - Brunch

Let's be honest. There's no shortage when it comes to brunch spots in the city - the only problem is... the lines, especially at places that do not take reservations. Brassaii is known more for nightlife - dinner, cocktails, bottle service and music but they actually have great brunch selections during the day. Plus, they take reservations!

REVIEW | Pi Co. Pizza

We all know that there's a LOT of options when it comes to pizza in Toronto. We haven't even come close to trying all of them as there's a new pizza shop popping up every few months! There are obviously differences - gourmet, brick oven, fast food, DIY, gluten-free, thin/thick crust, etc. the list is endless. When it comes to Pi Co. it's the perfect compromise in between all of that. It's a custom pizza that's authentic and cooked in minutes in a brick oven. The best part is that it's fast!

REVIEW | Food Nook Tours - Roncesvalles

Toronto is made of many unique neighbourhoods, each with their own history, culture - not to mention restaurants and bars. It wasn't until Bria's Food Nook Tour that I actually spent an entire Saturday afternoon in Roncesvalles, where she took us to 5 shops and taught us all about the area.

REVIEW | Ki Modern Japanese + Bar

We spent one Monday evening at Ki Modern Japanese + Bar in Brookfield Place for dinner and drinks. Located in the heart of the financial district, we weren't surprised to see so many people in suits. The restaurant is quite modern (as it says in its name) and chic and has that downtown bustle and liveliness, even on a weeknight. Not to spoil our experience in the first paragraph, but we're still thinking about the Dassai Sake we had with the Sake Sommelier!
