El Sazón de la Tía Flor

1549 O’Connor Dr, Toronto, ON M4B 2V7 Strange to say, but I don’t have a favourite Mexican restaurant in the Greater Toronto Area. I used to like the one that was in Unionville (I can’t remember the name of it), but it closed so I

2105 Lawrence Ave E, Scarborough, ON M1R 2Z4 Raw oysters…you probably either perked up at the mention of that or cringed. I never knew what the fuss was about with raw oysters. I had some in the past and they were ok, but it wasn’t

165 E Liberty St, Toronto, ON M6K 3K4 Whenever I think of Brazen Head, an Irish pub in Liberty Village, it brings a smile to my face. I previously worked at a company nearby so my coworkers and I went there often for lunch and

28 Lee Centre Dr, Scarborough, ON M1H 3J1 It is not difficult to find a Japanese restaurant in the Greater Toronto Area nowadays, but finding one with fresh, good-quality sushi is a little more difficult. For dine-in restaurants, I have a few favourites, but sometimes 

Blackhorn Steakhouse

Blackhorn Steakhouse

251 Ellesmere Rd, Scarborough, ON M1R 4E4 It was a milestone birthday for my dad this year. I originally wanted to throw him a party or BBQ to celebrate it, but since several family members wouldn’t have been able to make it, my husband and

2074 Lawrence Ave E, Scarborough, ON M1R 2Z5 I had never heard of Boustan until a few months ago when I saw an article about it on blogTO. Even though they have over 40 locations in Montreal and one location in Ottawa, they only opened
