EVENT | Food Phone-O-Graphy Class with Henry's Cameras - tips for your next best #foodporn photo!

You guys probably know that we like to take photos of everything we eat or drink (just check out our instagram: @foodsisterhood). Because a lot of our photos are taken at random times of the day, we often use our cameras on our phones to take the food photos, meaning it's not high quality photography. Thank God for Henry's Phone-O-Graphy classes because I attended one last week and left with some awesome tips and tricks to taking better drool-worthy food photos with my phone!

REVIEW | Bryan's BBQ - Korean AYCE with more restrictions than options

A group of us went to eat at Bryan's BBQ after we discovered Joon's Restaurant (read about it here) was closed every second and fourth Tuesdays. There are a ton of Korean restaurants in the Bloor and Christie area but Bryan's happened to be across the street and they had an all you can eat barbeque so we decided to give it a try.

REVIEW | Han Ba Tang - tapas menu with traditional Korean ingredients & a modern twist in North York

Han Ba Tang (HBT) is a newly opened Korean fusion tapas restaurant and bar in the bustling Yonge and Sheppard neighbourhood.  With a read parking lot and steps to the Sheppard TTC station, it's in a very accessible location.  If you're in the area often, you probably already drove past or walked by the new addition  And, if you haven't already noticed, Han Ba Tang doesn't have a typical storefront sign and it's actually for a very good reason.

RECIPE | Summer Fresh Roasted Garlic Hummus Sesame Noodles & WIN our GIVEAWAY!

We told you about our love for SummerFresh's wide range of hummus when we made a visit to their headquarters last year.

EVENT | Celebrate Ontario Wines with LCBO from September 14 - October 11 #TasteLocalLoveLocal

With the sunny summer coming to an end, I can't help but feel a little sad about patio season being over.

They call it, Taste Local, an annual event during the harvest season, which features Ontario wines from each wine region district, allowing wine lovers to taste and discover a new favourite.

OPENING | Chatime opens a new location in Toronto's Annex neighbourhood for more 'Good Tea, Good Time'

My favourite bubble tea brand, Chatime has its opened doors to their latest store, located in the Annex across the street from the St. George subway station. This location will be especially convenient for the UofT students nearby. I got a sneak preview of the store last week and ended up leaving with more love for Chatime and discovered their hidden gem drinks.

REVIEW | Marben Restaurant on Wellington for dinner with some foodies from Zomato Toronto

Marben Restaurant has always been on my list but for some reason, I have yet to try - so when Zomato's foodie dinner was at this restaurant, I was beyond excited.  Marben is well known for its farm-to-table menu that is constantly evolving, and mostly catering to the after work crowd in the King West neighbourhood.

NEWS | TIFF Promo at Luckee Restaurant offers a unique dim sum experience, including afternoon tea!

It's the very first day of TIFF 2014 and what better way to start off than to talk about some drool-worthy specials at some of our favourite restaurants? TIFF is Toronto's liveliest and the most star-studded event in the film industry so it's no wonder why chefs are bringing their best dishes forward.  Luckee is no exception and one of our most anticipated - we love Chef Susur Lee's take on TIFF with his own 'production' called - Spotlight Dimsum.

NEWS | Zomato is launching in Toronto: What it is & How to use it for the full Zomato Experience

There's a new foodie guide app coming to Toronto: Zomato! The name is definitely catchy but what makes Zomato different from the other apps we're already using, like Urbanspoon and Yelp? Zomato's guide focuses on providing users information on delivery, dining out, cafes & even nightlife in major cities world wide in India, New Zealand, Brazil, Portugal, Chile, United Kingdom... and many more. I think it's safe to say if you're traveling to those cities, you can count on Zomato for your gastronomic adventures.
