Lambie Bubble Tea is one of the ubiquitous restaurants along the First Markham Place outdoor mall strip. There’s so many restaurants that reside on the perimeter that I still don’t know what exact restaurants and cuisines are available — I haven’t tried everything yet! It is such a popular mall along Highway 7 and Woodbine that most people know where it is. Continue reading
Guu Izakaya is one of the first izakayas to gain attention and prominence in the Toronto food scene. When it arrived in late 2009 — with its flagship restaurant located in Vancouver, Canada — many Torontonian foodies were extremely excited about its launch and anticipated a visit to this bustling restaurant.

The last time I was here, I tried out the ultra popular Shiso Tree Cafe for some delicious Italian and Japanese fusion pasta. It was very delicious and memorable! This time in J-town, Eric and I tried several tapas to share. Continue reading
There’s nothing like going for breakfast early in the morning with a friend to just catch up. Betty and I tried out The Montreal Deli and Greek Grill yesterday and it was a no frills deli and grill place.
I hadn’t heard much about this restaurant at all before and didn’t even know that it was located in the densely-restaurant-populated area of York Boulevard in Richmond Hill Continue reading
