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…..
On our day trip to Kingston to tour the beautiful 1000 Islands on the St Lawrence river we decided to check out a great little Italian place in the city. I was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and the service we received at the Olivea Restaurant/Trattoria. We ordered mostly off their special filled with omelettes and eggs benedict. They were all so tasty and fresh. The best thing we ordered from the menu for our appetizer was the Olivea bruschetta ($9) filled with yummy tomatoes, capers, artichoke and feta cheese. TOO DIE FOR!! If you ever happen to visit Kingston or you live there make sure you visit Olivea Restaurant. Here are some of the items we ordered.
