REVIEW | Sunday Brunch & Cocktails at FIGO

Lazy Sundays are one of my favourite things but if there's something I would get up & try to look decent for, it's brunch. Especially if the restaurant is as stylishly elegant as FIGO is.  This pretty spot is located in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district, so if you live in the area, I'm quite jealous!

REVIEW | Francobollo

We made our way to Francobollo Posto Italiano towards the end of last year to satisfy our cravings for Italian food. If you guys remember, we went to Terra in November and loved everything from the decor, meal and right down to the service. We had just as high expectations for Francobollo being the newest addition from the Substance Food Group.

EVENT | Elle Cuisine's Holiday Party with Bourbon-infused Food & Bourbon Pairings

December is always a crazy month. Gift shopping, boxing day shopping, holiday parties, long work hours before taking some days off, the list goes on. Looking back at the month that always seems to fly by, one holiday party stands out: Elle Cuisine's holiday party at Apt 200.

REVIEW | Feast ON 7-Course Dinner Experience at Spirit Tree Cidery

First off, let me just say that I love beef and cheese. When I heard about the Feast ON dinner featuring both, I couldn't say no. I invited my friend along for a mini road trip to Terra Cotta, just South West of Caledon for this 6-course dinner featuring cider pairings from Spirit Tree Cidery.

REVIEW | Kingyo Izakaya

I don't often find myself at Cabbagetown even though I've heard of Kingyo Izakaya many times from other food bloggers that I've met. The brand originated in Vancouver and opened its Toronto doors in 2012, so my visit is way overdue.  To my delight, Yuki (PekoPekoLife) organized a menu tasting that I wouldn't dare miss out on!

LAUNCH | Toronto's popular Japanese izakaya rebranded as Kinka Izakaya

Guu Izakaya has been in Toronto quite a while now and Torontonians are probably used to being greeted by the servers' "irashaimase" every time they enter the restaurant. All three locations have been rebranded as Kinka Izakaya as of late but fear not, as they're still serving their signature dishes, and being attentive as ever. I haven't been for a few months and for this visit, I got to taste all my usual favourites and then some.
