I've never gone for strictly 'Mediterranean' food before, so this was definitely something different. I've heard many good things about Byblos and their tapa-styled dishes, & now I can say I've tried it! 

Byblos is located on Duncan Street, right off of King Street West. Serving Eastern Mediterranean cuisine, the dishes from Byblos holds both a traditional and modern ways of cooking to present many of the items served here.

Paint Nite!

A fun activity to do in the winter (or anytime really - but since it is indoors, and winter is cold, I say winter) is Paint Nite. Hosted by local bars and restaurants around town, Paint Nite organizes and provides all material for you and your friends to get together to drink, eat, and paint on a canvas. 

Different from Paint Lounge, where you get to paint whatever you feel like painting, you choose your location / time based on the specific painting you want to be taught to paint. 

There is an instructor that helps turn your canvas from this... this! (See below.)

Kintaro Izakaya

On a Thursday, I attended the Kintaro Tasting at Kintaro Izayaka. Kintaro is known for their skewers, and look at how they make them! So many different kinds on their grill getting ready for dinner service - yum yum.

This tasting was filled with so many dishes of Japanese eats!
So let's get started and let's see what I had :)

Review: Chef's Plate

I love eating out - everyone knows that. Everyone also knows that I don't really like cooking (it's mainly because I'm not that good at it :( I'm slowly learning though hehe). But Chef's Plate makes it easy! Pre-packaged ingredients with an easy to follow recipe is my kind of cooking.

Taste of Iceland: Nov 12-15, 2015

As I'm in the midst of planning my mini getaway to Iceland in the new year, I got the opportunity to get a taste of what Iceland has to offer in the best way possible (see what I did there?). 
Coincidence? I think not!

I know, that dish looks stunning. This is Icelandic Lamb, for all those wondering, and it is only available this weekend during Taste of Iceland!

Hiro Sushi

How often do you get to eat sushi prepared freshly from the Chef himself at an authentic Japanese sushi bar during work hours? Not too often, in my books. :) 

I had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday at Hiro at the sushi bar. We had so many pieces of sushi and they were all so delicious that I really didn't have time to keep track of all the kinds of fish I had a chance of trying. But they do say that pictures are worth a thousand words, so enjoy and I hope it makes you drool!!
