After spending the morning and getting some culture in at Aga Khan Museum as part of my mom’s birthday celebrations, we took a break for lunch on the patio of Diwan restaurant. Diwan is part of Aga Khan Museum and Chef Mark McEwan is bringing Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian cuisine all under the same roof. There are plenty of choices and all … Continue reading Diwan Restaurant
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!
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 “The Rude Boy”
I’ve heard about The Fisherman Clubhouse from my Chinese friends for a long time now and I thought it was time for them to let me in to this hidden lobster and crab heaven. 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…
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.
I know its been a long time since my last entry, blame it on the Holiday rush and a bit of laziness. So I thought the best way to break this silence is to start with a food entry!
Couple of weeks ago my foodie friend Rainbow LC and I checked out Prohibition GastroHouse during the Winterlicious. I usually don’t venture out to the Queen east area but I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and of course the food. Think elevated pub grub. The decor was casual but was given some touches of elegance and cheeky twist , the menu sounded and was delicious. Here is what’s on the menu…..
