Her Take: Korean Fusion at Oddseoul on Ossington

Her Take: Korean Fusion at Oddseoul on Ossington

Oddseoul on Ossington is easy to miss. The narrow restaurant and darkened lighting all add to its mystique, and Kyle and I would have easily walked right past if we hadn’t been seeking it out. Toronto Life had just come out with its Top 20 Sandwich list, and Oddseoul made the cut with its Philly Cheesesteak at number fifteen. I’m ... Read More »

Her Take: Lobster Caesars and More at Rock Lobster Food Co.

Her Take: Lobster Caesars and More at Rock Lobster Food Co.

What started as a pop-up food truck in Toronto has now transformed into a seafood hit, complete with two restaurants and a growing fan base. Rock Lobster Food Co. run by Matt Dean Pettit serves up all things lobster and seafood at his two locations on Queen street and Ossington. Considering I have a borderline obsession with seafood (I would eat ... Read More »

Her Take: A Real English Breakfast at Toronto’s Bristol Yard

Her Take: A Real English Breakfast at Toronto’s Bristol Yard

Finding a real English breakfast in Toronto is not an easy task, and while many places claim to offer this go-to British staple, many fail miserably. The Bristol Yard is one restaurant that knows its stuff, and provides the real deal including grilled mushrooms and tomatoes. For anyone feeling the effects of the previous night, head here to get your ... Read More »

Her Take: Cheap Sandwiches and Tacos at Banh Mi Boys in Toronto

Her Take: Cheap Sandwiches and Tacos at Banh Mi Boys in Toronto

Banh Mi Boys in Toronto has grown on me in the last few visits. My first impression was lukewarm, and with Come and Get It right round the corner my natural inkling was to go there instead. However, after trying the squid taco at Banh Mi Boys I have since changed my mind. With cheap prices and a Vietnamese twist ... Read More »

Her Take: Have a Pint While Studying at Tequila Bookworm

Her Take: Have a Pint While Studying at Tequila Bookworm

Tequila Bookworm is one of those places that you can’t help but revisit. With its relaxed atmosphere and extensive drink list, this is the perfect spot for studying while having a pint to keep those creative juices flowing. After coming to Tequila Bookworm for an afternoon to work on the blog, I started questioning my frequent visits to coffee shops ... Read More »

Her Take: Brunch at Joy Bistro in Leslieville

Her Take: Brunch at Joy Bistro in Leslieville

Some of the best restaurants I’ve been to are those that Kyle and I never intend on visiting, and that’s exactly how we stumbled upon Joy Bistro in Leslieville. After walking along Queen Street to find multiple restaurants with an unimaginably long line, we came across this place that only had about three groups ahead of us instead of fifteen. ...

Her Take: The Warmest Welcome at Kinton Ramen on Baldwin

Her Take: The Warmest Welcome at Kinton Ramen on Baldwin

Kyle and I stumbled upon Kinton Ramen on Baldwin completely by accident as we were wandering through this part of town searching for a bite to eat. The place is small, but the minute we saw a huge lineup outside we were tipped off that this restaurant  had potential. The wait was slightly longer (about half an hour), so we ... Read More »

Her Take: The Best German Beer Hall in Toronto at WVRST

Her Take: The Best German Beer Hall in Toronto at WVRST

One of my main complaints about Toronto always revolves around how hard it is to meet people, but the German-style beer hall WVRST completely dispels this sour taste about Canada’s largest metropolis. WVRST consists of large, communal wooden tables, making it easy to turn around and talk to your neighbour. We even had the entire bar chanting at one point, a ... Read More »

Her Take: Brunch at School in Liberty Village

Her Take: Brunch at School in Liberty Village

School in Liberty Village is a restaurant that Kyle and I had been meaning to try for ages, and when we did we kicked ourselves for not coming sooner. From the food to the theme, the masterminds behind School are certainly onto something. For one the layout of the restaurant catches the eye, with a long chalkboard on the outside ... Read More »

Her Take: Chill Out at Bellwoods Brewery Toronto

Her Take: Chill Out at Bellwoods Brewery Toronto

Bellwoods Brewery Toronto is an ideal place to chill out and relax in the summer. With so many people cooped up inside during the winter months, the minute the weather warms up it seems like everyone would practically live on a patio if they could. Bellwoods Brewery is equipped with picnic tables that jut out from a garage-turned-microbrewery, a transformation ... Read More »
