Toronto Bites: Sushi on Bloor

Mikaius and I have been looking for a new favourite sushi place since Akabane closed; as broke Uni students who adored sushi, we would often raid that joint for their $11 AYCE lunches. If we were going on Tuesday dates, we would settle in for a leisurely sushi lunch there, then walk down to Silver City Richmond Hill […]

Toronto Bites: NU Bügel

Mikaius and I finally managed to steal a little time from our busy schedules to visit a couple of new (to us) food places at Kensington Market. Coming up in the next weeks will be several KM-themed Toronto Bites posts, from experiences that we were only all too eager to dive into, and equally as […]

Toronto Bites: Harlem Underground

Last week, a friend of mine picked Harlem Underground for her 22nd birthday celebration, and it was the first time I had the opportunity to dine there. It is a cozy little establishment, a great place for friends wanting to catch up for a couple of hours over food and drinks. Upon walking into the restaurant, my first thought was […]

Pininyahang Manok

I’ve always, always loved pineapple. The highlight of my hungry teenage days would be to come home and find pre-sliced pineapple in the fridge; I’d eat it by the bowlful. In fact, my *Dad would buy two or three pineapples, cut them up and just stash them in the fridge for me. I ate those […]

Toronto Bites: Lamesa Filipino Kitchen

I am reviewing Lamesa Filipino Kitchen with Mikaius today, because I took him there for his 24th birthday dinner and I want to know how he found the place (and the food!). Did I make a good call taking him there for his 24th? Read on after the jump and see! Dani: When I stepped […]

Toronto Bites: Cora’s

Disclaimer: I am very much a loyal Cora’s fan. It is my go-to place for brunch whenever I can, because their serving sizes are great, all the dishes I’ve had there were amazing, and my family (who, as I’ve mentioned before is very Filipino in their tastes) loved the restaurant enough that there were no complaints […]

Toronto Bites: La Maquette

July 4-20 is Summerlicious in Toronto! It means that for two weeks, over 200 of “the city’s best restaurants” will have a three-course prix fixe lunch and dinner menus – and for my friend Jhona and I, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to meet up for dinner after work and catch up. It was […]

Chicken Alfredo!

I made Garlic Chicken Alfredo sauce from scratch today! I was so excited because I’d never made pasta sauce from scratch, because my family is most obstinately Filipino and will not touch anything other than kanin and ulam come dinner time (looking at you, little brother!) When Mikaius and I were at T&T earlier trying to decide what to make […]

Toronto Bites: Golden Star

Mikaius and I had been planning to eat at Golden Star for a long time now – in fact, I think we were contemplating it for a whole year or so before we actually went. He told me that they serve really good burgers and milkshakes, and if he says the food is good, I’m always up […]

Toronto Bites: Pyung Won House

Pyung Won House is my go-to place when I’m craving flavourful, inexpensive, and plentiful food. Mikaius and I love to go to this place when the wind is brisk – but that may also be due to the fact that I took him to this place for his first time mid-winter, and it holds some nostalgia […]
