» TOCA at the Ritz-Carlton

To commence V and I's weekly date nights, aka our TripCs.. We decided to start it off big at the Ritz-Carlton.
What a gorgeous hotel!

TOCA
We went there right after work (around 5:30ish pm) so it was still quite early. We were practically the only people there :) perfect!
Our waiter, Courney, was the best! He was so nice and helped us with the menu and gave us a tour of their famous Cheese Cave.
Candlelit dinner :) hehe
Started off with butter, and bread
1st C of the night: cocktails
Cheers!

The famous Cheese Cave
And a special C: cheese
Courney was the best and gave us a free cheese plate as a sample! :)
I absolutely hated it LOL but V adored it. Good thing one of us loves cheese!

We actually wanted our photo to be blurry.. Jk. :(
I don't know if I should say it was fortunate or unfortunate, but we actually had to leave our beloved dinner earlier than we wanted to because we went to watch Safe Haven (the last C: cinema).

At TOCA, they pride themselves of using mainly Canadian ingredients and local foods. It definitely contributed to an amazing food experience, I have to admit I didn't want to leave.
The service, the food, the atmosphere, the food.. unbelievable!
