Franchia & Birdland

Guess I went with holiday Canada Day option. All my camera batteries were drained. Sobeit. Back to NYC… Looking up, The ceiling at Franchia Vegan Cafe, Korean, NYC. Each seating area was stepped back into alcoves and balconies suggesting terraced farmed land. We had a few dishes which was pricy but superbly done. There’s nothing […]

Ceylonta is Sri Lankan food at 2920 Carling Ave. It’s been going since 1994 but Bayshore isn’t an area on our radar. After a recommendation (thanks Stuart!) we tried it. Wow. Good food exists. Exceptional food even. A quiet dim room with eastern type decorations, colourful without being garish. We got vegetable thali. Every dish […]

The Carleton

Carleton Tavern’s hummus tabouli plate special with pita for $8.50. This hummus was really garlicky but it depends. Like home cooking, it isn’t always the same. Good tabouli.

Petit Bill’s chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Probably 2 people could […]

Viet Taste

New place in town this month. Crunchy noodles topped with vegetables. Menu choice is easy when there’s only a couple vegetarian options. Haven’t had this type of food before. It was pretty good. Good colours and flavours and freshness. We’d return. The rolls were the upper edge of average. My fortune.

Wellington Sandwiches

( Reviews )

People keep telling us it’s good. It feels like a community in there with regulars and conversations, not hermetically sealed revolving door or part time workers for megacorp. Could be small town anywhere. The wrap was food, and a vegetarian option. But the butter tart! As if from a church bakesale, the find of the […]

A Thing for Chocolate: Sconing up on new things

( Reviews )

A Thing for Chocolate crepe. My default favourite kind: brie with maple syrup and pecans. Omar is continually expanding the chocolate section so it’s fun to watch the jaw-dropped grins of chocoholics on seeing the selction. Now he’s got chocolate cheesecakes, tartes, fondue, crepes, hot chocolate, meringues and now scones: Cranberry, white and dark chocolate […]
