259. Toronto | Restaurants

I miss the Tube/London! This map was a life-saver..always led me back to one of my two most important places when I was there - my hotel or Harrods ;]
I'm going to take another short break from my vacation posts. Here's some photos of what I've been doing and where I've been eating since I came back:

Holts Cafe: inside Holt Renfrew, located beside their shoe department. I came here for lunch the day after I came back to Toronto. When I was in Europe I usually ate out at restaurants alone, and realized it's not as bad as I thought. So I'm trying to do that more here in Toronto - it's nice to have good food & unfortunately I don't always have people at my disposal to eat out with! Holt's Cafe is pretty casual and they have really good food. I got the chicken pot pie with a side salad. Delicious!

Another new obsession: French style cafes and restaurants with good brunch. It's rare to find ones I really love in Toronto, but here's two of my favourites at the moment.

Le Select: Came here for the first time last weekend to have brunch with my sister. I loved the atmosphere and the decor in this place. I got their Belgian Waffles - some of the best I've ever had! I'd definitely come back again.

La Societe: Came here with my friend while he had dinner & I had dessert: the espresso mille-feuille. I've been to this place a few times before and it's also one of my favourites in the city. I've tried their dinner and brunch and loved everything so far.

Bier Markt: I've been here many many many times already. They mainly serve Belgian/German food and have like 100 different beers. I came here yesterday with my friend to watch the Germany-Italy Semifinal match (we were both disappointed with the result) but at least I found a new favourite drink - the Swedish Mojito! I'm very picky with drinks..I only like drinks that are very fruity and don't taste like alcohol. Which is what this drink was. I also got the smoked chicken "Flammkuchen" (aka flatbread) which tasted amazing!

Swish by Han: I don't like Korean food so I may be biased to say whether or not this place is good, but I love their food presentation.

Pravda: You're probably familiar with this place if you've been following my blog for awhile. My favourite place to end the night.

PS - I think I'm going to start doing full restaurant reviews in Toronto.

  13. I can't believe I finally know someone who doesn't like Korean food lol Not that I hate it but I don't crave it the way I crave other things like sushi. But I know loads of people that looooove Korean food.

    I actually have relatives over from Toronto right now and please do full restaurant reviews! So that if I ever make it to that part of Canada I'll know where to eat! =D

    Oh gosh, the walk up the arc was agonizing since it got sooo stuffy in them middle! I tell friends that if their claustrophobic to avoid it too lol I sort of regret not going up the Eiffel tower now since the view is so much different from the Arc. The only reason I didn't go up was because it wasn't included in my museum pass AND someone said that the view was similar -.-
