DOMA Toronto Tasting Menu

Doma a French inspired Korean restaurant is the first-time endeavor of Chef Paul Kim from Seoul, Korea. Their menu changes slightly each month by incorporating new items and rolling forward a few popular items from the previous menu.

For $65 per person, you can experience their 9-course tasting menu which is effectively also their entire monthly offerings. Great deal!

I went in the month of May and some of their popular entree type items are still currently available on their menu this month. Continue reading

Bar Reyna @ Yorkville

Spent St. Patrick’s Day (coincidentally, really) with Adrienne at Bar Reyna in the heart of Yorkville.  What intrigued me about this restaurant was their beautiful indoor patio and their chargrilled octopus dish.

Tapas Only.

Had a girls date with my friend Karen at Tapagria a few weeks ago where we decided to go all out and order whatever tapas we wanted without caring about the price XD

I’ve only been to Tapagria once with a few friends over a year ago and didn’t get too many of their tapas as we got a large paella to share, so it was nice to finally try more of their menu.

$5.00 Sangrias on Thursdays too!
Here’s close ups of what we ordered:

Sorelle and Co.

 

I love anything high tea-esque so the beautiful and elegant interior of Sorelle and Co. definitely roped me in.  If you are a health conscious individual, their menu is gluten/ soy/ sesame/ nut/ preservative – free and  vegan.

I admittedly am none of those, but the taste was surprisingly better than I would have expected. I don’t think I would have noticed their changes in ingredients if the cafe did not advertise as such, which is great!

Adrienne Powers Up 1 !!!!

It was Adrienne’s 23rd birthday celebration last weekend and I had been looking forward to it since she posted the set menu Rodney’s Oyster House had prepared for her. I’ve never been to Rodney’s before since I’m not a big fan of raw oysters, so this was a great way for me to try out a lot of their offerings. It was also amazingly cool and helpful of them to offer to provide a set menu since we did have a large group.

To start, we had oysters on the half shell (I arrived fashionably late with Dom so we missed what these were), lettuce wraps with grilled portobello, avocado, pickled peaches, citrus aioli, fresh chillis and cilantro, and then PEI mussels in dill, garlic and white wine.  There was also chicken bites for those who didn’t enjoy seafood.

Next, the entrees came in the most baus way possible – all 3 entrees and 1 side put on a huge wooden trough-like thing, which was so large that it had to be carried in by 2 people!!! Everybody’s phone and cameras came out in a flash. The entrees consisted of lobster club sandwiches (everyone’s favourite), a roasted pepper, caramelized onion and potato frittata, and flank steak in chimichurri sauce. Our sides were Boston Bibb, tomato, goat cheese salad and onion rings.
A party is also never a party without selfies and selfie contests. Here’s a compilation of our best shots:
