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.

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!

It's safe to say I'm obsessed with burgers and sweet potato fries. They're just SO good, I could probably have them every day of my life if my body would permit me. Anyways, for mine and my best friend's monthly foodie date, we decided to venture out to Parliament Street and try out The House on Parliament. This area of town was very foreign to the both of us, but finding the restaurant was fairly easy. The atmosphere was very warm and reminded me of some sort of 19th century home. Another aspect I loved was the fact that it was family owned! In fact, it was the owner's little girl that seated us and gave us water; so cute! (I apologize in advance for the shoddy picture quality! I forgot my phone AND camera that day.)

Midterm season is finally over. Instead adopting the typical university exam diet - consisting of muffins, ramen, and energy drinks (none of which sound appealing to me) - I chose to eat healthier than ever in hopes that by feeling good, I'd perform well. Once the midterm season was over, I decided to celebrate with my friend over dinner at Fresh by Juice for Life on Bloor and Spadina. The location is perfect; literally a 2 minute walk from the subway. Inside, Fresh was a little cramped for the amount of people they fit in. Nonetheless, we were seated within minutes and dug in.

I've been to the WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro twice prior to my visit friday. Needless to say, I'm always a fan of trying something new, and there were a few particularly interesting looking burgers on the menu.

A few days after my birthday, a good friend of mine wanted to treat me to a birthday lunch saying I could pick aaaaaany place I wanted. Naturally, I pick the one spot so far away that the only way somebody would agree to visit it with me was through birthday guilt; SCHOOL Restaurant in Liberty Village.

Can you tell I'm more than a little into burgers?! So on my day off from uni, I decided to forget the Mount Everest of work I have to do and venture out to Holy Chuck, which is conveniently located a brisk 1 minute walk from St. Clair subway station, with a friend of mine.
