Locals Only

I’ve been to many places but none of them left an impact on me like Locals Only did. Maybe it’s because they have this awesome current promo of half priced wine and buck a shuck oysters everyday from 5-8pm, or it’s the awesome service, kickass atmosphere and delicious tapa style food. Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right.  …Read More

Ever since my favourite Indian restaurant closed down on Queen Street, I haven’t really been able to find an Indian restaurant I’d like to sit in and eat at, aside from the usual takeouts I’d do via Just-Eat online.

La Vecchia Ristorante

La Vecchia Ristorante is off my radar as it’s based in Eglinton and I don’t usually venture there but my good friend Johnny, suggested that we eat there for dinner before watching Suicide Squad at the movie theatre near-by and made reservations there for us.

La Vecchia has a lovely and casually elegant atmosphere that’s perfect for a date night or a dinner out with friends. …Read More


Guirei Japanese Restaurant

Being a big fan of the Japanese food and culture, I’m always on the hunt for must-try places. Being located downtown Toronto makes that a lot harder unless you’re willing to shell out money for good sushi, you’re going to have to dig deep beyond the sushi take-outs for good quality fish. …Read More
