After our dinner at Figures (we weren’t full), we headed towards Pi Co. for some pizza as a second dinner.  I hadn’t been to Pi Co. yet despite this being such a popular spot and having been shared by foodies all over Instagram at one point (I think there was a media tasting there).

We went to the original location of Pi Co. which was at Bay and Bloor (right in the heart of Toronto).  (They also have a new second location at Yonge and Eglinton and their website tells me that they will have two more locations coming up in the GTA as well in the next two years.)  I was excited to try Pi Co. to see what their pizzas Continue reading

Figures comic book restaurant

Figures located at 137 Avenue Rd in Toronto

I recall when BlogTO posted an article about the opening of this unique restaurant called Figures in which comic books were the theme and there was even an “secret entrance” in order to enter the restaurant.  Well, my friends and I visited the restaurant last Saturday evening and I have to say I was really disappointed (and felt a little jipped) about the entire experience. :/

(Don’t get me wrong, I’m really Continue reading
