There was a lot of buzz about Toronto's very first Dim Sum Festival, called YumchaTO. Being dim sum lovers ourselves, we didn't hesitate to buy tickets to attend. It was held at a two-story building in the heart of Chinatown and although ventilation seemed to be a bit of an issue, that didn't stop us from indulging in as many dishes as we could!

Fresh Restaurants has been around for 15 years (and counting), so why haven't I been there before? It was just this past week that I finally made a visit for lunch and from hearing about those quinoa battered onion rings, my expectations were high! I went to the Fresh on Eglinton, the newest location by the Fresh chain. The other 3 locations are spread throughout downtown Toronto.

Amaya Restaurant, created in 2007 by Chef and owner Hemant Bhagwani, already boasts 16 different locations in Toronto, so I'm sure you've already been to, or at least heard of it. We were invited to get a taste of the Chef's new spring menu that reinvents the Amaya experience - and who could say 'no' to that? We didn't hesitate to accept the invitation for one of Toronto's best modern Indian restaurants.

Seoul Restaurant is another one of those Korean-family owned casual restaurant in Korea Town. They specialize in hot pot cooked dishes with seafood, dumplings and also in Korean street food 'boon-shik.' However, don't expect top-notch service and memorably delicious food as this joint is more for a quick & affordable meal.

KooKoo Chicken’s opening in Mississauga has been a long awaited event for local bubble tea goer’s and Taiwanese snack food lovers. For as long as I remember, enjoying quality bubble tea and Taiwanese snacks has been synonymous to a 45-minute drive east to the bubble tea chains in Markham and Richmond Hill. With the opening of KooKoo Chicken, local bubble tea giant Bubble Republic will truly get a run for their money.

Fried chicken is probably one of Korea's most popular late-night eats and in Korea, they're readily available with delivery and countless numbers of restaurants for it. Unfortunately in Toronto, there's only a handful of restaurants that specialize in this dish. One of them, which I personally think is the best in the city is called The Fry. Both of The Fry's locations are on located on Yonge, one on Sheppard and the other, North of Finch.
