Booster’s On Main

Booster's On Main patio

(View from Booster’s On Main patio). Booster’s On Main located at 175 Main St Unionville in Markham

After a fun and successful photo shoot in Main Street Unionville, we went to Booster’s on Main to quench our thirst and for some bites.  At this time, the sun was beginning to set but the weather outside was still good enough to squeeze in some patio time.  Thus, Ken and I asked to be seated outside on the patio.  Luckily, we were able to nab the last one.

Media Tasting Event at Boil King

Boil King seafood boil

Boil King located at 333 King St W in Toronto

There is another new seafood boil restaurant in town!  Boil King is now open and located in the Entertainment District on 333 King Street West close to Blue Jays Way.

Boil King is a family-owned restaurant that serves the Louisiana tradition of Cajun-style seafood in the heart of downtown Toronto.  With a kitchen led by a chef with over thirty years of international culinary experience, the restaurant invited me to a casual family-style tasting event with other Instagram food enthusiasts of Toronto last night!   Continue reading

Melissa’s Missteak (Banff)

Melissa’s Missteak located at 218 Lynx St in Banff

What a pleasure it was to be able to dine in Banff, the world’s most beautiful rocky mountains and the village that is so picturesque!! 😀   Unfortunately, by the time we drove in from Lake Louise (which was actually an hour away), the sun had set and it was really cold outside!  All that was on our minds was dinner before we started another 5-hour drive home to Edmonton (thank you to our friends who drove!).   Continue reading

Cafe Hollywood (newer location)

Cafe Hollywood located at 7240 Kennedy Rd in Markham

Everyone knows about Cafe Hollywood, right? 😀  The first and original location of City Cafe Hollywood is located right on the outskirts of Market Village and has been there for over a decade.  I remember first going there for afternoon tea with my mom many years ago when I was a kid and now it’s made popular by us GenYTO kids who go there every Thursday evening and anytime during the week too for cheap eats and delicious food.   Continue reading

Amazing Wings and Fries at St. Louis Bar & Grill!

Located at 1383 16th Avenue in Richmond Hill

After three hours or so of playing badminton at Flying Dragon on Thanksgiving Monday (the time just FLEW by — get it? ;P), a few of us went to St. Louis Bar & Grill for lunch.  We were originally planning to go next door to Magic Noodle, but they were packed, so we ditched the line-up.   Continue reading

Lunch at Moxie’s Grill & Bar in Square One

Located at 100 City Centre Dr #2 in Mississauga (inside Square One Shopping Centre)

Wow, I was so impressed with the food that I had here at Moxie’s!  We all know that a few years ago, chain restaurants like Moxie’s didn’t serve the best tasting or coolest choices of food, or at least for me, their reputation wasn’t very high on the foodie list.  However, Moxie’s has upped their game in terms of the food quality in the last couple of years and I have to say I was so happy and satisfied with what I had here.   Continue reading

Elephant & Castle

Located at 212 King St W in Toronto

After having received the free $50 gift card from Elephant & Castle (they enlisted my help to run a contest to give away a gift card and I got the same gift in return. Yay!), Jen and I went there to dine and try it out.

I’ve walked past this location of Elephant & Castle on King Street many times before.  Continue reading

Las Vegas Eats 2014: Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen + Bar

Located at The Quad Resort & Casino
3535 S Las Vegas Blvd

It was our last night in Vegas!  I was going to miss it; all the good food, the energy, the sparse yet comfortable crowds, the dry heat, all the new things I got to see — we had to make the most of our last night!

Vivian and I were checking online at the Venetian (yay free wifi) to see which restaurants would be good enough for our last meal in Vegas before we jetted back home.   Continue reading

3rd Annual Toronto Wing Festival

3rd Annual Toronto Wing Festival at Daniels Spectrum

This was my first time attending Toronto’s Wing Festival.  Apparently this was the third year that they hosted it.  I’m sure a lot of people don’t even know about this festival, so hopefully this blog post will bring more awareness to this foodie event and also have you drooling over my chicken wing pictures.  Hahaha, I’m joking about the last part, but I really did eat a lot of wings this past weekend. =]   Continue reading
