Plank Restobar

Plank Restobar

For my birthday this year, my friends organized a dinner at the patio of Plank Restobar in Oakville. They wanted to do something special for me since it was a milestone birthday, even though we had to celebrate COVID-style. As I get older, milestone birthdays aren’t as 

Kostas Meat Market

Kostas Meat Market

Ok, I know I blog about Greek food a lot, but how can I resist when it’s so tasty? On Valentine’s day last year, I was craving Greek food as I often do so I decided to check out Kostas Meat Market at Warden Ave 

Pulled Pork Taco Pizza

Pulled Pork Taco Pizza

I don’t think I know anyone (personally) who hates cheese. What’s to hate? There are so many different kinds of cheese, it tastes good and it tastes even better when it’s melted so I use every opportunity I can to melt cheese on my food. 

Jatujak

Jatujak

If you are asked to name some good Thai restaurants in the GTA, you can probably come up with a couple that are located downtown, but if you have been to Jatujak, that one might be on your list as well. They have 3 locations in 

Eggplant Fries

Eggplant Fries

What is purple and is called both an animal product and a living organism that grows in the earth? Eggplant isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but the people who eat eggplant seem to love it. When I first heard of eggplant fries, I knew I had to try 

Hutch’s On The Beach

Hutch’s On The Beach

Do you love fish and chips as much as I do? If so, one of the best places to go for fish and chips in the Greater Toronto Area is Hutch’s on the Beach. It’s in Hamilton so it can be a bit of a 

Ibrahim B.B.Q. Shawarma

Ibrahim B.B.Q. Shawarma

The Greater Toronto Area has a lot of great food and being so multicultural, you can find food from pretty much every ethnicity. I think the only other city that is similar in terms of variety is New York City. When this COVID-19 pandemic ends 

Air-Fried Jalapeño Poppers

Air-Fried Jalapeño Poppers

If you like spicy food and cheese, air-fried jalapeño poppers are really quick and easy to make from scratch. It only requires 3 ingredients – super simple! It also tastes much better than frozen jalapeño poppers because it’s fresh and you can choose how much 

Lucky’s Souvlakis

Lucky’s Souvlakis

When my husband and I went to Greece in late September/early October 2019 for our honeymoon, we didn’t plan which restaurants to go to except one – Lucky’s Souvlakis in Fira, Santorini. When I was doing research on the cities we would be visiting while we 

Bleecker Street Pizza

Bleecker Street Pizza

My coworker told me about Bleecker Street Pizza, “an amazing pizza place” in New York City, so we decided to try it when we went in 2016. It ended up being our favourite meal in NYC and that is why 4 years later, I am blogging about it. 

Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted Chickpeas

I tried making roasted chickpeas today since like many of you, I am self-isolating at home. I like to normally eat out at least once a week to change it up from cooking at home, but that seems to be a thing of the past, 

Ground beef and vegetables

Ground beef and vegetables

If you want something easy, quick and tasty to make, this ground beef and vegetables recipe might be for you. Even though I don’t normally like eating rice (unless it’s with Greek or Indian food), I like eating rice with this dish. I first started 

Bollocks Pub & Kitchen

Bollocks Pub & Kitchen

One of our favourite pubs is Bollocks Pub & Kitchen. There are 3 locations…in Pickering, Whitby and Stouffville. The Pickering one is the closest to us so we have only been to that location so far. I first found out about it when I Googled 

Locus Point Steamers

Locus Point Steamers

I’m going to start off by saying I love crab. It is my favourite seafood and since I live in a city that is not near an ocean, there aren’t as many restaurant options that serve crab, and if they do, it’s pretty pricey. One 

The County Cider Company

The County Cider Company

Ok, so The County Cider Company in Prince Edward County isn’t in the GTA, but putting this post under “Food around the world” didn’t seem right either… For my birthday last July, I wanted to do a day trip somewhere so my husband and I 

Chicken and Shrimp Fettuccine

Chicken and Shrimp Fettuccine

Even though I love eating out, one type of food I rarely order when I go out to eat is pasta. I usually find the pasta they serve in restaurants too rich and creamy. It’s super tasty, but for some reason, I feel guilty for ordering it even though I 

Patridogevsia

Patridogevsia

Patridogevsia was a restaurant we found by chance when we were vacationing in Chania, Crete. We had hiked 13km on rough terrain for 7h through Samaria Gorge earlier that day and didn’t get back to our rental car until dark so as you can imagine, we were
