Joey's Yorkdale Review

  Joey's has been longtime favourite of mine and the Yorkdale location is no different!  This time I went with a friend to celebrate the end of the school year with some good food and good talks after much needed retail therapy.  

Fresh on Eglinton Review

  It is no secret I'm a huge lover of Fresh; in fact, I've been to all their locations and absolutely adore their food.  When I found out Fresh opened up on Eglinton&Yonge which is very close to me, I had to see if it's to par with its downtown locations!  Thankfully, it was!  The restaurant itself was far more spacious than the other three locations and is less busy!

Lee Review

  In my opinion, the best way to celebrate the end of exams is a nice meal out... especially after that killer Accounting exam this morning.  Anyways, Lee, owned by the renowned Susur Lee, is located at King West and has been on my wish list for a while.  They have a "sharing style" menu - much like Origin North, for example - and specialize in Asian fusion food.

Tom's Dairy Freeze Review

  Driving 40 minutes to Etobicoke in the midst of exam season for ice cream in winter is normal right??  Since a friend claimed this was "the best soft serve ever" - amongst many others saying the same - a few friends and I decided to try it out after dinner one day.

The Stockyards Smokehouse & Larder Review

  Two words.  Fried chicken.  It's so good you SHOULD feel guilty but you just can't logically regret something that felt so right.  Either way, a good friend of mine was craving some good fried chicken -  nothing of KFC quality - and took note that BlogTO rated Stockyards Smokehouse & Larder #1 in Toronto for the best fried chicken (if you want to read the list yourself feel free here).  We decided to go on a Friday afternoon as we were both in the mood!  

  First impressions included a) ridiculously strong smell of Barbecue b) ridiculously strong smell of meat c) ridiculously packed and d) ridiculously cramped.  We waited approximately 15 minutes for seats as the restaurant only provided stools and counters.

Bannock Review

  I've walked past Bannock countless times without glancing at it twice -when shopping at the Eaton Centre, when skating at Nathan Philip's Square, and so on.  However, when a friend and I were thinking of a spot to grab dinner at before shopping, Toronto's ice cold weather prevented us from desiring any type of mission.  Since the reviews were fairly good, we decided to give it a go.

Harlem Review

  What's better on the first day of December than some good old comfort food?  Following this logic, a friend of mine and I went to try out Harlem Restaurant on Richmond Street, a brisk 5 minute walk from Queen subway station.  The restaurant was fairly small but had a lovely atmosphere to it!  It was all burgundy, brown and gold, and had a true Southern feel to it.  The waitress and host were lovely and very genuine, which I appreciated!
