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 “DOMA Toronto Tasting Menu”
In my first day at in Cinque Terre, I managed to visit 3 of the 5 villages. This second day, I went to see the last two and attended the annual Monterosso Lemon Festival which by chance, we were in town for.
Here’s what I did with my second 24 Hours in Cinque Terre:
1) Hike from Vernazza to Corniglia on The Sentiero Azzurro (The Blue Path). This leg of the hike was quite enjoyable as most of the view was of the ocean. It also gives you a nice breeze as you walk.
2) Enjoy the cliffside view of Corniglia. Continue reading “48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 2”
Cinque Terre meaning five lands is an area comprised of 5 villages – Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Each one is exceptionally beautiful as they all rest along the coastline and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I had 2 full days to explore all 5 villages by hike and by train. Monterosso was my personal bias because during my 3-night stay it was my home.
Here’s what I did in my first 24 Hours in Cinque Terre:
1) Grab pastries for breakfast. From Wonderland Bakery in Monterosso, I had to try a cannoli!
2) Hike The Blue Path (Sentiero Azzurro) from Monterosso to Vernazza. Continue reading “48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 1”
I planned a 6 day trip in Italy to visit Venice, Cinque Terre, and Rome. It was very ambitious but I believe I pulled it off successfully. Rome was admittedly quite rushed – my travel buddy Beatrice said it was a good intro to Rome trip for her and she would like to return to see it in more depth. Regarding Venice and Cinque Terre, she said we spent the perfect amount of time there to experience it fully. Continue reading “24 Hours in Venice”
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.

Looking for an authentic PEI adventure? I was too and what I discovered was clam digging!
With Experience PEI, we joined their Beachcomber’s Clam Boil activity ($85 CAD + HST). It was a great hands-on excursion. We were given a pair of gloves, a shovel, a bucket, and the free range of a beach to scavenge for whatever treasures we could find from mussels, to oysters, and to clams!

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! Continue reading “Tapas Only.”
Adrienne brought me out to Colette Grand Cafe for a brunch buffet in celebration for my 24th birthday. Colette is a french cuisine restaurant and bakery which just started offering brunch on Sundays as of September 2014. The pictures of the interior as well as the food on their website got me sold even though the brunch does come at a hefty price of $50 per adult. And it really is quite beautiful in person too!

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 … Continue reading Adrienne Powers Up 1 !!!!
If you don’t already know, my favourite type of cuisine is hands down, Japanese food. I’m always on the scout for the best izakaya or best sushi restaurant in Toronto. My favourites so far are Fin Izakaya, Guu Izakaya, and Inakaya. Let me know what your favourites are!
One day in the midst of a sushi craving, Adrienne and I decided to finally check out the famous JaBistro. What intrigued me most about JaBistro was the fact that other than Omakase they offered what they call “Kyukyoku” on the menu, which is 12 pieces of market fresh sushi.
