• The New Teriyaki Experience

    Hello Loves! A little bit of a story time today. When I used to work near Union Station in downtown Toronto, I would often go to Teriyaki Experience for lunch. It was easy, quick, and not to mention delicious. The teriyaki sauce is what really makes the dish I think. It was the perfect combination of sweet and salty. You can imagine how expensive it gets to eat out every day though. So when I stopped working near Union, I inevitably stopped eating at Teriyaki Experience as well. Chicken Teriyaki Recently, it came back onto my radar because I had been told that they were looking to rebrand and now…

  • Butter Avenue Newly Launched Afternoon Tea

    Hello Loves! For those of you that don’t know yet, Butter Avenue has launched a new afternoon tea menu. I got to try it in May, the weekend before Mother’s day, but haven’t gotten around to posting until now (whoops). I’m sorry I’m so bad at blogging (haha). Anyway, you can see that we started off with some tea, there is a selection of tea you can choose from. They have some that are specifically for afternoon tea or you can choose something from their regular menu. What are the options you ask? Well, I forgot to take a picture of the menu so I guess you’ll just have to…

  • Nome Izakaya Toronto – New Patio Preview

    Hello Loves! I was invited to the grand opening of the new patio at Nome Izakaya and I was not disappointed. There were delicious cocktails and sake galore, freshly shucked oysters, amazing little apps, and sashimi! I didn’t get to picture everything though because everything went so fast but I tried my best for you guys. All of the cocktails were nice and refreshing, all of them having their unique tastes. If you were to ask which ones were my favorite, I would probably say the blue samurai and sumo sour. I can’t tell you what’s in them exactly but they are delicious and you just need to go try them…

  • My Belmonte Raw Juice Cleanse Experience

    Day 1 I went to pick up my juices from Belmonte Raw‘s Leslieville location before work. I completely underestimated how heavy 2 days worth of juice would be. I’m glad that Belmonte suggested I pick up my third cleanse on a separate day ensuring both freshness and my arms to suffer a little less. I decided to do 2 days of “The Intro” and 1 day of “The Deep“. Here’s how it went. I’m glad that “The Intro” came with a raw meal. It was a nice way to ease into a juice cleanse. All of the bottles come numbered so you know exactly which one to take next. 01:…

  • Bar Ape Pop Up Event (YUM!)

    I was invited to Bar Ape’s Pop Up Event hosted at The Sovereign and got to sample some of their soft serve concoctions. I was first introduced to Bar Ape in the summertime when I stumbled upon their cute ape (pronounced ah-pay) near Trinity Bellwoods with my friend Alexa. They usually serve gelato bars but at the event, their focus was on soft serve gelato. I got to sample their pear sorbet, pumpkin seed gelato, and a pistachio gelato on a gluten-free cookie. All of the flavours were amazing but I must say the pumpkin seed gelato was my favourite. Also, the gluten-free cookie was amazing and I hope they…

  • Butter Avenue Fall Tasting

    My favourite Toronto macaron place (Butter Avenue) invited me to their fall tasting to test out some delicious treats. First up was the Pumpkin Spice hot cocoa with Pumpkin Spice macarons. Perfect for the chilly days we’re starting to get here in Toronto. They are also in the works of expanding into savory items and I’m all for it. I’m a huge fan of the Maple bacon, gruyère & tomato bouffée fromage (pictured right). It is almost like a quiche with the cheese and filling but not quite as heavy or dense. “Jardin Perdu” (Cinnamon Chantilly, caramelized apple & pear, mini chocolate apple, almond crumble) Thank you Butter Avenue for…
