REVIEW | 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 | XXI Chophouse at The Doctor's House

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 |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.

LAUNCH | Rexfords Lifestyle - healthy, hearty & delicious gourmet meal subscription

Many of you have probably heard of or seen meal subscription services popping up in Toronto (Uber Eats, anyone?) We've tried services before that delivers ingredients so we can make our own meal but haven't experiences a service that delivers pre-cooked meals that we simply heat up and enjoy - this is exactly what Rexfords Lifestyle offers.

REVIEW | The Drake Hotel

Happy weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying the amazing weather in Toronto - it's about time, right? With weekends, always comes brunch dates with your S.O., friends, family, or a blind date (maybe?) and even thought I haven't been to this  spot in a while, I decide to write about it now since I just had a craving for their delicious chicken & waffle. I'm talking about The Drake Hotel.

EVENT | Nota Bene Happy Hour

For all you fellow foodies that work downtown, you may or may not see me enjoying a glass of Cava and munching on some delicious bar snacks after work hours at Nota Bene Restaurant for the next month or so.  Why? Because they have 10 new menu items offer at $4 each, between 4PM and 7PM everyday.  I mean, if you go with a friend and order everything, it's $20 per person - how awesome is that? Cheers!

RECIPE | Curry & Yogurt Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

I'll be honest, I don't cook a lot. Clara's more of the home cook/baker, while I tend to eat out at restaurants more often then not.  However, I do try to prepare lunch to take to work everyday, which is almost always a salad with my protein of choice: chicken. It does get boring though.

I was looking through some chicken recipes to try (easy and quick is a must for me) this weekend on Ricardo Cuisine called the "30-minute chicken & vegetable curry" and decided to give it a try - of course, with my own spin on it. I call it, Curry & Yugurt Chicken with Roasted Vegetables!
