May 22, 2019:  I think Sud Forno is a hidden gem that hardly anyone ever talks about!  Why is that?  (Perhaps because it is newly opened only since July 2017?)

Thanks to us leaving early from work and the original restaurant that we wanted to go to being full, we took Nancy’s advice and headed to Sud Forno for dinner at around 6 p.m. on a Wednesday night.  I didn’t even know Continue reading

Saturday Brunch at Provo FoodBar

Provo FoodBar brunch

Provo FoodBar located at 308 Dundas St W in Toronto

May 12, 2019:  Our visit to Provo FoodBar confirmed to me why you should never decide on a restaurant when you’re hungry.  …

Provo FoodBar is located on Dundas Street West directly across from the Art Gallery of Ontario.  After our Sporting Life 10K run at 10:30 a.m., we were looking for a restaurant for brunch just like last year.

While on the Dundas streetcar, Provo FoodBar was the first restaurant that popped up in my search along our route that had high ratings and was open for brunch.  We Continue reading

May 12, 2019:  I participated in the Sporting Life 10-kilometre run/walk in Toronto again this year!  This was my third time participating overall (I participated back in 2014 and last year, 2018).  This downhill event features closure of Yonge Street in Toronto with thousands of participants every year.  The support of the proceeds goes to Camp Ooch, a camp for kids with cancer.

This year, we didn’t Continue reading

Campagnolo located at 832 Dundas St W in Toronto

May 21, 2019:  It seems like a number of well-established restaurants are closing this year in Toronto.  The next one to bite the dust is Campagnolo, a sophisticated Italian restaurant on Dundas Street West.  I remember passing by this corner restaurant numerous times when I was walking down this street.  The logo of their restaurant name on the glass windows was something I noticed every time I passed by.  Continue reading

May 5, 2019:  After our escape game across the street, we went to Kim Kim Chinese Hakka Restaurant.  I honestly love eating Chinese Hakka food since it’s always so savory but just never end up eating at such restaurants often.

Kim Kim Chinese Hakka Restaurant is a no frills kind of eatery.  Their Continue reading
