Diwan Restaurant

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 sounded super delicious. We sat on the patio under the giant umbrellas and enjoyed the nice weather for the day. The indoors sitting area looked very pretty and it was buzzing with all the museum patrons chatting away. I think most museum visitors do the same thing as we did. Walk the museum and hit Diwan for lunch! We got a few things and shared everything. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the lamb samosas. We were super hungry and they got devoured as soon as they hit the table. Same for the name of the dishes….sigh… hunger affects my memory… The fries were delicious! I would have loved …

Starfish Oyster Bar & Grill….

I still remember the first time I had mussels, I was maybe 12. We were visiting a family friend just outside Paris and our hosts had made us mussels. I think I liked it when I had it, my mom was a bit concerned about my sister and I eating unfamiliar food while on vacation but it all turned out alright. Since then I always get these random cravings for mussels. I find them DELICIOUS!! When my friend, the human Urban Spoon, suggested Starfish for our Summerlicious lunch option I was super excited. Starfish is a charming little place on Adelaide st east and I’m ashamed that I never knew they existed. The lunch menu was filled with yummy food from the sea and we were excited to try everything.
