Lil’ Bit Of Basil In Ma Life….

Basil Plant

When it comes to making food at home, I’ve been super lazy. I use to be inspired by random things during grocery shopping trips and rush home to cook. Lately, I barely go for grocery trips (Thanks mom!), so I might not as inspired to put a meal together. No matter how simple it could be.

The other day I happen to join my mom on a grocery trip and I saw a table full of these little basil pots and I had to buy one. Little I knew, this basil pot would be a start of a crazy run of rustic breakfasts and snacks. Give a hungry Persian girl some inspiration and she’ll run with it…. I’m going to call it, rustic Persian fusion!

The Rude Boy

Over this past weekend with the beautiful weather we were having I decided to come down with a cold. Being as stubborn as I am and not wanting to stay in and have a sick day, I ventured out to get some fresh air and of course some healthy food to help me fight the cold. After going for a walk around Kensington market, it was time to find some food and rest up. I ended up in the west-end of Toronto and in Roncesvalles to get my burger on at The Rude Boy. Located at 397 Roncesvalles Ave., The Rude Boy is a hidden gem between new eateries popping up in the area.  Continue reading

Located in Markham, just north of Toronto Scarborough, The Fisherman Clubhouse is a tightly kept secret within the Asian Community in the GTA. (It’s true, you can say whatever you want but it’s true) I was invited to join my friends for a lobster dinner at the clubhouse on a weekend and my mind was blown…

Oh April….

April has been a busy, interesting, eye-opening, frustrating, educational and a few other adjectives that I really don’t want to share on the web kind of month. Although I have all these mixed reactions towards April, of course I managed to slice out some time to have fun in the city. Meeting with friends over awesome Korean food in the Annex, going to a concert at The Drake Hotel and oh yeah, getting to try out a 2013 VW Beetle TDI.

Banh Mi Boys

I rarely find a restaurant that makes me want to keep going back to eat there everyday. Well, I found one more restaurant to add to that short list. Banh Mi Boys located just west of Spadina and Queen street is a hidden gem to the untrained eyes. A small hole in the wall few doors down from the famous Spadina/Queen McDonald’s, Banh Mi Boys is a true Toronto hotspot.
