OMG, Shakshuka is EVERYWHERE!: Five Toronto Places to Get it

Shakshuka at Moroco ChocolatSLIDER

When I first came across this delicious Israeli egg dish, it was at Aroma, an Israeli-based coffee chain that had opened up in the Toronto area.  Eggs cooked in a tomato and roasted red pepper sauce, it is healthier and filling at the same time – perfect for this time of year.  Since my first […]

Getting into the Game at Wild Burger

Wild Burger Game Meat optionsSLIDER

Last week, I had the privilege of attending a blogger dinner at Wild Burger, a new 30-seater gastro burgery owned by Suman Roy, a globally renowned chef and Gautam Banerjee.  Located in the Eglinton and Mount Pleasant area, Wild Burger is very different from other gourmet burger houses in the city.  Rather than a huge […]

Pizza and Fish at Buca Yorkville

I recently had the opportunity to have dinner at the newest Buca restaurant, Buca Osteria & Bar.  Located at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto’s Yorkville area, this restaurant is different from the King Street locations.  Rather than focusing on meat, this restaurant is full of seafood choices (don’t worry, there are non-seafood dishes as […]

Caffe Artigiano Arrives East to Toronto

Caffe Artigiano Spanish LatteSLIDER

Vancouver-based café, Caffe Artigiano has opened a spot in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, on Yonge, just south of King Street.  The café offers a wide array of caffeine-based drinks as well as sandwiches, salads, soups and pastries.  I had the opportunity to attend a media drop in last week and was able to […]

DelectablyChic!’s Favourite Toronto Restaurants: Milagro Cantina Mexicana

trio botaneroSLIDER

My husband got me into Mexican food.  Before meeting him, the only “Mexican” I had were school cafeteria tacos – you know, grocery store bought taco shells that are more chip-like than a “real” tortilla.  My parents never took me to any sort of Mexican when I was growing up – it was pretty much […]

Magic Oven: A DelectablyChic! Toronto Fave

Customized Tofu PizzaSLIDER

It’s not hard to admit that Toronto has a love affair with pizza, especially thin crust pizza.  However, most pizza places offer the same old choices, and usually not vegan or gluten-intolerant friendly.  This is NOT the case with Magic Oven, which boasts five locations across the 416.  Visit the restaurant’s website and you will […]

A Brighter Sorrel Restaurant in Summerhill

Sorrel BranzinoSLIDER

My husband and I first went to Sorrel Restaurant last Christmas when it was located on Yorkville Avenue.  The dinner we had was excellent and we decided to go for our Valentine’s Day dinner.  Sadly, that didn’t happen as the restaurant was a victim of a devastating fire just a few weeks later (we went […]

Saying Goodbye to the Coffee Mill

Coffee Mill Chicken SchnitzelSLIDER

The Coffee Mill, located on 99 Yorkville Avenue, is closing on September 7.  The restaurant has been in the area since Yorkville was a prime hippie spot in the 1960s and offers old school European fare like schnitzel, cabbage rolls and strudel.  Until the advent of espresso bars across the city, it was probably one […]

Sharing the Psychedelic Menu at Fat Pasha

fat pasha pita and hummusSLIDER

Ahhh….Israeli and other Middle Eastern-inspired cuisines. It’s definitely the latest “it” cuisine here in the city, and like most ethnic cuisines, it isn’t likely a passing fad.  I feel that it’s definitely here to stay (because it’s just so good).  In my opinion, once a culture’s food rises out of the mom-and-pop, “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants, you’re […]
