Nugateau, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nugateau, Trinity Bellwoods, Toronto

Nugateau specialises in a single type of pastry, and that’s the humble éclair. But here, it’s in a pimped out form. There’s many themed around holidays and some that are just straight up dessert-decadence flavours. This was a visit at the counter within the bright Sak’s Food Hall. […]

Panera Bread, Garden District, Toronto

Panera Bread, Garden District, Toronto

I had fond memories of the Panera Bread chain. It was one of the rare eateries along my USA road trip where I thought “that was good and I don’t regret eating more”. It was also one of the few places open near Dundas Square […]

Popeyes, Downtown Yonge, Toronto

Popeyes, Downtown Yonge, Toronto

After four years away from America, I was so excited to reunite with a Popeye’s chain. The fried chicken, the buttery biscuits and everything you can smell wafting from the fryers… yes! But alas, it wasn’t quite meant to be, with this experience making it […]

Cherry Bomb Coffee, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

Cherry Bomb Coffee, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

My mornings are best started with an excellent coffee, and I found one I rather enjoyed at a nearby cafe called Cherry Bomb Coffee. The staff member understood my request for a flat white (yes!) and I was already pleased that managed to nab a […]

Taco Bell, Yonge & Elington, Toronto

Taco Bell, Yonge & Elington, Toronto

I do feel that we’re missing a beast, in the decent fast food chain that is Taco Bell. Across NZ, Australia and the UK it’s not in sight at all. So I had a little fix whilst I was in North America-land. Here, the Taco […]

Sushi California, Earlscourt, Toronto

Sushi California, Earlscourt, Toronto

Welcome to the Sushi California, such a lovely place, such a lovely place… Well, it is. There’s a slogan on the window outside of “sushi with a style, prices with a smile”. That’s certainly lived up to in the experience at Sushi California. We were […]

Thai Home, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

Thai Home, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

I’d love to have a home near Thai Home. And my friend is fortunate to be in that situation, being mere seconds from the front door in Roncesvalles Village. We dined in for the $10 set lunch, and this was straight out incredible. It’s not a […]

Banh Mi Boys, Fashion District, Toronto

Banh Mi Boys, Fashion District, Toronto

One of the highest rated restaurants in Toronto Zomato, and also one of the most popular ones, judging by the volume of reviews and the crowds inside. And all for under an $8! I was struggling to decide on which of the many Queen West […]

Mr Tonkatsu, Harbord Village, Toronto

Mr Tonkatsu, Harbord Village, Toronto

If you didn’t already know what tonkatsu is, it’s a deep fried pork cutlet served with shredded raw cabbage, sweet sauce, and rice. And if you want a most excellent one check out Mr Tonkatsu on Bloor Street West. I had a quaint evening exploring the […]
