Dinner @ Joey’s…..O’Neill Rd, Toronto

  Went back to Joey’s for a family dinner. I’ve heard great things about their Tuna Sashimi salad so I had to try it. I’m not much of a salad person (usually go for pasta), but this one is definitely worth trying. This place is a bit more upscale than other franchise restaurants like Pickle…

El Trompo…..Augusta Ave, Toronto

Probably the best tacos I’ve had in TO. With such a large range of specialty tacos to choose from, it’s hard to go wrong. We decided to try a Jamaica ($1) which tasted like sweetened fruit punch in a kid-sized cup and El Pastor, pork tacos with pineapple. The sweetness of the pineapple with the…

It’s right beside the very popular Tako Sushi which is also quite good (the service there is fast and the prices are affordable), but I love eating in this cozy hole-in-the-wall, especially on a rainy day. The sashimi here is always fresh and they always…

House of Gourmet in Chinatown…..Dundas St W, Toronto

We always end up eating in a Chinatown restaurant when we go to visit my grandparents and this time was no exception. House of Gourmet is quickly becoming one of our favourite spots because of their delicious food and super fast service (but honestly, I have never been in a Chinese restaurant that didn’t have…

The Old Spaghetti Factory…..The Esplanade, Toronto

Got the chance to head down to The Esplanade during my lunch hour. It was crazy hot but we decided to sit on the patio anyway because it was such a nice day. My favourite Italian dish is lasagna but I’m also a huge sucker for ravioli so I decided to get the Factory Ravioli…
