You, the reader/cook/diner, are invited to join me as I explore Toronto (and farther afield) in search of some outstanding food finds. I hope to inspire you with my discoveries and with my passion for food.
Me: Spinach Eggs Benny with salad (sauce on the side). Just water.
He: Salmon mango salad with daily soup. Canada Dry.
Bright, clean, perfectly seasoned. A few surprises: the salad dressing was a Thai-influenced tangy type which I happen to love. Plus there were morsels of red cabbage, which I also love. The sauce was ordered on the side for no better reason than I like to pour it over the eggs myself. It's kind of like I'm in the kitchen...? I can't explain it. It's definitely not a 'watch your weight' thing. (I watch it on other occasions.) The soup was interesting - curry flavours with some tofu. Everything ordered at neighbouring tables looked equally delicious.
Boho-chic. Retro furniture (clean and untorn) with smatterings of funk and contemporary photography (nothing too boundary pushing) on the walls. The biggest surprise for me was the downstairs hallway and the 'waiting room' set up outside the restrooms. The guy was fixing something in the ladies so I used the mens. Often this can be a problem but I was pleasantly surprised to find more funky decor and a very clean room.
