Chowing Down in Chi-Town: Chicago’s Culinary Experience

As someone who enjoys health and wellness retreats, embarking on a foodie excursion to Chicago would require me to adjust my expectations. There would be a dearth of fruits and veggies at mealtime, to be sure – after all, the city is known for its deep-dish pizzas, hot dogs, and pierogis. In fact, it was […]

Je T’Aime Maman Toronto!

Those of you who work in Toronto’s financial district are in luck.  Bakery/café and SoHo favourite, Maman has opened north of the border and features delectable southern French treats.  DelectablyChic! had the opportunity to attend media event on Bastille Day where we had the opportunity to sample cocktails and some of the treats, both savoury […]

Summerlicious 2015: Reservations Open Today

Many old favourites are back, including Trevor Kitchen + Bar, La Société, Sassafraz and One.  Lee and Bent are also on the list, Luckee is not.  Also missing is the restaurant at the Drake Hotel.  Perhaps they’re just sitting this one out and will be back for Winterlicious 2016.  Who knows?  Prices remain the same […]

A Meal at Ottawa’s Mezzanotte

Fine dining in Ottawa isn’t hard to find, but that is really more of a problem than it might sound. Ottawa’s Byward Market is full of locations that will provide you with a satisfactory experience, however, if you’re anything like me, satisfactory just isn’t good enough. I want it all when it comes to my […]

Freekeh Out Over a New Salad at Aroma!

From delicious breakfast items like shakshuka (I had my first there!) to soups (always comes with delicious baked-in-store bread), sandwiches and salads to their wide range of caffeinated drinks and pastries, Aroma Espresso Bar is one of my favourite places to grab brunch or lunch.  In fact, this Israeli-based eatery is popping up all over […]

Dining at Diwan Restaurant in Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum

Diwan Restaurant, the 85-seat dining room at the architecturally-stunning Aga Khan Museum is located near the not-so-convenient Don Valley parkway. There aren’t many other sit-down restaurants in the vicinity, which is largely known for its big box outlets. So it would be fair to say that Diwan has a captive audience of museum goers around […]

Dining at TOCA’s Chef’s Table

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a media dinner along with several other food writers at TOCA, the Italian restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto.  The experience included a four course meal in addition to some sparkling wine and a visit to the “Cheese Cave” prior to the meal where we had the […]

Porzia: Spring Menu Delicious, Event Could Have Been Better

I had the chance to experience Porzia‘s new menu on April 15 through an invitation from its PR company.  It was served cocktail style with cheese, crostini as well as pasta and dessert.  The food was excellent, but the environment was far from that.  In order to truly taste the food, attendees had to hover […]

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

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

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 […]
